^ yeah, I also read this.
But hope it`s not true or Regina changes her mind.
Shvedova -Birth Place: Moscow, Russia and Residence: Moscow, Russia- decided to play for KAZ mainly because of money. And for FED CUP. Although she is good enough to play FED CUP. I mean even Kudryavtseva did play the last time.
I don`t think there is a real connection with KAZ for Shvedova, Voskoboeva and Karatantcheva.
Mainly the money is the reason. So I have lost a bit of respect for them to be honest.
It`s not like they were struggling to survive.
They just wanted to have it easier - by giving up their true nationality.
For Regina it is a bit different because seems like her boyfriend is from Italy and she wants to live there in the future.
But Russian tennis could really need Regina.
She must decide if she feels more Russian or more Italian.
