whose decision was for Tatiana to play for France?
do you think Anna at 14 years old decided herself to move to Israel?
when was the last time Kournikova played for Russia? 1997 Fed Cup?
Kournikova did win junior Europian championships with Koulikovskaya in 1995.
On the other note - there is nothing wrong with Kournikova's loss in Shanghai. Remember, Smashnova won her first title at 23 (and she had more success in juniors than Kournikova). After US Open flop not many expected Anna K to make it to the finals, but she did it and with style too. She is obviously on the right track and, with Solomon's guidance, she'll probably get her title even before the year's end.
Best of luck to my favourites:
Lina Krasnoroutskaya, Vera Zvonareva, Masha Sharapova
Vénus Williams, Seréna Williams, Lindsay Dávenport
Jelena Dokic, Daniela Hántuchova, Ana Ivanovic
Masha Kirilenko, Nastya Rodionova, Alina Jidkova
To all players on tour: stay healthy and play your best
