2005 Fed Cup

Lena is having a strong 2005.
Now she plays her first Fed Cup match since 2003.
And she is the only Russian in the top 10 who is playing.
The tie is in Italy on April 23 & 24.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Myskina withdrew.

Elena might have to carry this Fed Cup team, at least in this first round.

why look at the tournament as a loss in the final.i think elena should look at the previous matches.how she got there.a loss in the final is better than a low profile exit early on.she needs the serve to stand pressure so she won't improve unless she plays finals.i feel she should have attacked jhh at 5-3 and keep in control.

Dinara starts against Schiavone.
Then Lena plays Garbin.
On day 2, Lena plays Schiavone.
If it's 2-2, the Lenas will play doubles.

Russia will win against Italy. With Belgium likely to be stepped on by the US, it's us, Russia and France who are in the driver's seat.

It will be hard to root against Lena in the semis, but I must. Of course, if the USA loses I'll be 100% behind Russia because of Lena D.

Well Schiavone has a bad year, but you're right Ronaldo, Schiavone can have a bad year, but she can get herself loaded up for the Fed Cup, i think Lena can handle her...

Why do you think that you must root against Russia? Only because you are American, and it's yours team.

To be honest, if Russia (with Lena in team) played with Poland I will root for Russia and Lena.

Italy vs. Russia 1-0. Dinara lost.

In others matches: Austria is leading with France 1-0 and Spain with Argentina 1-0
