"Lesya Tsurenko and Elina Svitolina - the undisputed leader on the Ukrainian women's tennis segodnyashy day. Olga Savchuk I invited as an excellent doubles player and a man who in the match for sbonuyu will fight for every ball. Remember how she struggled in Australia. Yulia Beygelzimer - very skilled player, a very important and wonderful atmosphere in the team. wanted to see in the team Katerina Kozlov, but it has not yet recovered from the injury.
The match against Spain will be very difficult and, above all need fighters with more experience fighting command that will pull every ball in the game against the experienced ground troops.
Spanish women have opted for tennis players who own rotation. The same Torro-Flor is very uncomfortable for us. Youth players are beating them. Perhaps the Spanish federation could not agree with someone, Carla Suarez Navarro, for example. Perhaps the Spaniard will make one change compared with the initial application, but usually in women's team this is rare, and the captains are making small changes - that is, change one player. "
