Shamil said "yes" last moment, he had to have reasons for that step,
exept Luzhkov's opinion & support.

Frankly speaking I don't want it to be played in Russia. Nice is my choice.

We can have it in Moscow just as Nice.

No. If it is in France, I'd prefer Paris. Paris is a place where Russian always break through. That's a good ole tradition.

Freshy is a tad overconfident. I certainly hope Russia plays well and win their first Fed Cup title. But why should Russia be favored to win and beat France this year when they couldn't beat France last year? Are any players other than Myskina really dependable for Russia? I don't think so. And who will Russia's second player be after Myskina?

I think Anastasia and Vera have both improved. I welcome a rematch with France.
It won't be easy. But this isn't 2003.

Moscow will hold the Fed Cup semifinals and final in November, the second straight year it has hosted the conclusion to the top team event in women's tennis.

The International Tennis Federation said Friday it chose Moscow ahead of Nice, France, and Garmisch, Germany. Defending champion France, Russia, Spain and Austria have reached the semifinals, with the draw Sept. 10 in Moscow.

The decision to award the event to Moscow is subject to an agreement with a promoter. The matches will be played the week of Nov. 22 on carpet at the 5,200-seat Ice Stadium Krylatskoe, which is in the final stage of completion.

ITF president Francesco Ricci Bitti cited the boom in Russian tennis, noting seven women are ranked among the top 20, including French Open champion Anastasia Myskina and Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova.

"As they did last year, the Russian Tennis Federation will do an outstanding job in hosting and promoting the 2004 Fed Cup finals," Bitti said. Christian Bimes, president of the French tennis federation, called the decision to play in Moscow "financially motivated."

Just few years ago same very people were saying that Moscow does not deserve Tier I because it doesn't have money for that. Now they are crying wolf saying that we have too much money.. Cry me a river..

Why won't they play the Fed Cup semifinals and finals in the Olympic Stadium where the Kremlin Cup is played? Eggy said that last year during the Russian Fed matches in the Olympic Stadium there were crowds of about 10,000. Now playing in a 5,200 seat stadium will limit the number of rowdy Russian tennis fans to rattle the Russina's opponents the way it's done with Davis Cup home crowds. But maybe a smaller stadium will suppply a better atmosphere for the Fed Cup than the cavernous Olympic Stadium did.
