Great (at last!) Italian team announced

SILVIA FARINA
RITA GRANDE
FRANCESCA SCHIAVONE
ADRIANA SERRA ZANETTI

Having already 3 great singles players in the team I had chosen Vinci instead of Adriana for strong double pair but I'm happy anyway.

FORZA ITALIA

OMG Italians really want to be in the final four next fall. After convincing all their best players to play on Bologna's clay in 2 weeks time they have decided not to charge admission to the stadium in order to get full support. (Agreement between ITF and organizers, I wonder how much tricky italians have paid to ITF to allow it )

It looks it's going to be a tie not to be forgotten...

Yes ! I wondered for years why the Italians let chances slip away to win matches due to Farina Grande and Co. not playing !

Now with Kim not playing and Silvia as top20 and the others as top50 players, they see a chance of winning it !!
