Re: 2009 Fed Cup!!

It's in Italy...

There will be many opportunities to watch. Raisport and Supertennis (both Italian free channels on sat.) and streams of Raisport. Plus it might get picked up by betting sites again

I will try my best to record as well

Re: 2009 Fed Cup!!

Who will replace Vera Zvonareva?

Hopefully Dementieva or Safina and not Kleybanova or Pavlyuchenkova.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

A. Radwanska V. Zvonareva C. Wozniacki N. Petrova M. Hingis

Re: 2009 Fed Cup!!

I'd take Pavlyuchenkova over Kleybanova. I am not a fan of either one of them, but if I were the captain, I'd go with Pavlyuchenkova. I think you can trust her. I'd be a little scared about having both Chaky and Kuzzy out there. They are on a bad day
Good Luck to Russia though!

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: 2009 Fed Cup!!

Italy aims to derail the Russians

The expressive Italian Francesca Schiavone made a rather bold statement after seeing her side beaten by Russia in the final of the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas two years ago. The 28-year old surmised that had the match been played on clay rather than a relatively slick hard court the Italians would have won.

What goes around comes around and 19 months on and with a similar cast assembled in the rather wet Italian seaside resort of Castellaneta Marina she has the chance to prove her words were not sour grapes but ones of substance. No easy task. Schiavone confesses to a liking of cartoons, and this weekend they play tennis's answer to ‘The Incredibles’.

The full draw for the tie is as follows:

Saturday
Flavia Pennetta (ITA) v Anna Chakvetadze (RUS)
Francesca Schiavone (ITA) v Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)

Sunday
Flavia Pennetta (ITA) v Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)
Francesca Schiavone (ITA) v Anna Chakvetadze (RUS)
Sara Errani /Roberta Vinci (ITA) v Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova/Nadia Petrova (RUS)

Russian changes



Russia arrive for this semifinal without the new world No. 1 Dinara Safina, although the rotation policy adopted by this team is nothing new. What captain Shamil Tarpischev didn’t bargain for though was the withdrawal of the in-form Vera Zvonareva with torn ankle ligaments.

Into the second singles berth steps the 22nd- ranked Anna Chakvetadze who has registered only four wins to her name this year, four less than Nadia Petrova who can count herself unlucky to be watching from the bench.

Winners of 15 of their last 16 ties, Russia will look to Svetlana Kuznetsova to provide a backbone for success. Kuznetsova is now coachless after her split last month from Olga Morozova but is enjoying a Fed Cup run of eight straight singles wins. She admits though that preparations this week have not been perfect: “We have not managed to practise indoors, only outdoors, and not as much as we should have because of the conditions but we are looking forward to the weekend.”


Italy goes with what they know


So what of the Italians, the only other side to have claimed the Fed Cup title (the first in their history) in the last five years. Fresh from a 5-0 drubbing of France in the last round, there is a real feeling that this team is hitting its peak.

Flavia Penetta, Sara Errani and Schiavone all reside inside the world’s top 50, added to which they have a doubles specialist in Roberta Vinci who has yet to lose in Fed Cup play. To throw a spanner in the works Vinci beat two of her teammates on her way last week to claiming her second tour singles title in Barcelona.

That left captain Corrado Barazzutti with a dilemma, one he admitted was tricky. He said: “I am very happy that Roberta was playing well and happy to have her in the team. She is a player in good shape but it is important we have other players who can play well. Most important is that we have a good team.


Barazzutti praises team spirit


Team is perhaps the operative word, the core of this group now having spent nearly eight years together. “It’s a great spirit we have, this is the secret I think, we have been together a long time and I think it could be a secret for this match” Barazzutti added.

A sell-out crowd will be on hand over the weekend and the good news is the weather is set to improve. First up it’s the Italian number one Pennetta against Chakvetadze then it’s Schiavone against Kuznetsova. Few would back against the tie being anything other than tight.

Re: 2009 Fed Cup!!

Having Sveta in the team is not guarantying victory anymore. I did not see Ana's match. I only saw Sveta's third set and it was awful. I'm afraid Sveta is not only going to be gone from top 10, but also from top 20.

Re: 2009 Fed Cup!!

When Vera fell, it was a big fall for this team. They needed Dementieva, but she isn't playing that well either.
It's an unusual situation, none of them are in form now.

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
