Italian federation has no respect for our best players and gives them no support. Always the same story: federation has no money... but I think that the truth is that federation is not able to use its money.

It seems like they won't play against Sweden either. Only the Serra-Zanetti sisters have said they would take part. Italian Tennis Federation president does not know why...

BTW - The new Fed Cup captain is Corrado Barazzutti who is also the Italian Davis Cup captain. Raffaella Reggi's contract was not renewed.



Binaghi alle azzurre: "Perchè dite no alla Fed Cup?"
(14:19) Roma - Se i maschi decidono di fare un passo indietro, con la decisione di Sanguinetti di tornare a giocare in Davis, le donne continuano la loro protesta e contro la Svezia (27-28 aprile a Milano) le migliori non ci saranno. Lo ha annunciato il presidente della Fip, Angelo Binaghi, durante la presentazione del torneo Master Series di Roma. "Ho incontrato le giocatrici offrendo loro sia un supporto medico-logistico sia la promessa di un premio straordinario in soldi (50 milioni se arrivano tra le prime quattro, 100 se vincono la finale di Fed Cup. Ma a parte le due sorelle Serra Zanetti tutte le migliori non hanno accettato". Ma il presidente ha rivolto un appello soprattutto alla numero uno azzurra, Silvia Farina ("essere la numero uno significa avere dei doveri oltre che dei diritti"): "voglio capire perchè non vuole giocare. Che cosa dobbiamo fare per risolvere i problemi con le nostre più grandi giocatrici?". (Spr)

50 milioni se arrivano tra le prime 4,e 100 milioni se vincono è come dire "non vedrete il becco di un quattrino" xchè è impossibile x l'italia ottenere simili risultati.

btw who will join Serra Zanetti sisters?Vinci?what about Camerin?
