Well, in any case I hope that she talked to Fed Cup captain before making that commitment. Note, that announcement came relatively short before the exhibition ( one month ahead ), while Detroit exhibition match with Seles was announced long before. Also SA exhbition would require much more logistical effort so probably it was planned a while ago but they waited for her final answer for quite a long. The fact that announcement came right after Kremlin Cup is indicative. She was seen near the captain several times in there, perhaps he agreed not to use her for Fed Cup this year so she could go ahead with that exhibition. In any case, I'd prefer to see her playing for her country, but I am not sure that her foot is ready for quick adaptation to claycourts.
