Lindsay not playing Fed Cup semi

Fed Cup Semifinal Nominations, Liezel Huber to Lead Team USA

The 2008 Fed Cup by BNP Paribas has announced its official team nominations for the April 26-27 semifinals.

Lindsay Davenport, as well as Venus and Serena Williams have decided to skip traveling to Russia for the upcoming tie, leaving doubles specialist Liezel Huber to helm Team USA.

For Huber, who became a nationalized United States citizen last summer, this will be her first opportunity to compete in a team event for her new nation. Headed to Moscow with the co-ranked No. 1 doubles player is a young roster composed of Vania King, Ahsha Rolle, and Madison Brengle.

Russian Fed Cup captain Shamil Tarpishchev is expected to field a powerful squad of Svetlana Kuznetsova, Anna Chakvetadze, Dinara Safina, and Elena Vesnina.

RUSSIA v USA
Venue: Small Sport Arena “Luzhniki”, Moscow (clay - indoors)

Russia
Svetlana Kuznetsova
Anna Chakvetadze
Dinara Safina
Elena Vesnina
Captain: Shamil Tarpischev

USA
Liezel Huber
Vania King
Ahsha Rolle
Madison Brengle
Captain: Zina Garrison

I wonder why she opted out?

Re: Lindsay not playing Fed Cup semi

Sounds like Lindsay is still sick and doesn't want to travel while being sick.
Oh well, at least Linds won't be embarassed when Russian spanks the US.

Re: Lindsay not playing Fed Cup semi

What a US-team
No Lindsay!
The next goal for her is Wimbledon now!
Good luck!

Re: Lindsay not playing Fed Cup semi

If Lindsay had played she would've had to win two singles at least but I'm not totally surprised Lindsay has withdrawn. Without Lindsay the USA are toast.

Re: Lindsay not playing Fed Cup semi

Honestly, I think she skipped it cos the sisters skipped it, but I don't blame her, she's represented her country enough, and a trip to Moscow on clay is unnecessary.

Re: Lindsay not playing Fed Cup semi

Lindsay put herself in a really tough position in saying so equivocally that she was going to go and then finding herself on a horrendously weak team... I'm glad she's not going as it could well risk her pride, her drive, etc. Her illness gave her a good way out altho i'm sure that's not the reason.

Hope she plays Rome.

Fernando Verdasco | Tommy Haas


Q. Give us an update on the kid.
A. Are you serious?

Re: Lindsay not playing Fed Cup semi

I also suspect that since her son has been sick, she wouldn't want to travel to Moscow with him as well she shouldn't. Perhaps Jon put his foot down!!

Re: Lindsay not playing Fed Cup semi

I don't think anyone going to know the truth until Lindsay says something and I think it's got nothing to do with being on a weak team and more to do with her illness or something else. The team that played Germany wasn't going to set the world on fire and Lindsay still played. With all the tennis Lindsay has played lately she made the right call not to go rest is the best thing for her right now.

Re: Lindsay not playing Fed Cup semi

Venus won't play she's out for a month, and perhaps more, the rumors say she could be pregnant

Re: Lindsay not playing Fed Cup semi

I don't like Venus Williams but what ever is wrong with her I hope it's not serious. If she was pregnant would she have said so by now?
