I hope they won't. Otherwise we'll end up playing two Elenas in singles. But honestly, I have no idea who we should play as #2. Not Lina for sure. I would not play Likhovtseva either. Tanya? Nastya? Nadya? I'd play Tatiana just because of her phenomenal FC record.

ys ..... on Monday Lina will become Russian #2

Elena L #3<br /> Nadia #4<br />Tatiana #5

cos of big changes in next weeks rankings

I know Elena L/Nadia will play in doubles , Nadia has helped her case by winning anothe doubles title in Linz. These two also performed pretty good in SVK.

Bovina has won doubles titles last two weeks.

2nd singles spot is a dilemna , at least in FED CUP no Tiebreaks in final set so Nadya might be a little happy ( she'd he even happier if all 3 sets were AD sets like they were a few years ago)

<br /> we need Fresh2Flash to get us the latest info.

Good luck in 2016 to my favs*Kuznetsova*Sharapova*Kleybanova*Vesnina*Shvedova*Kulichkova*Kasatkina*

What happened in July, besides her losing one match? Did she have a fight with Larisa and Shamil?

You mean, she won't play Pattaya? Interesting..

Perhaps, every team MUST have a substitute that can be used if someone gets injured.

And Elena can now go and join her teammates in the last ditch effort to save the season from being a failure.

Thats what he said , I asked him how she was and she's fine <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

then I asked him if she's going to Bangkok next week and he said she will be playing with the FED CUP next week

they always have a reserve .

Nadya is now on the list for Pattaya ???????

Exclamation

I forgot to look here till today -- am very surprised at the makeup of the team! <img src="eek.gif" border="0">

But good luck to them. though it feels strange to cheer on a team that leaves out LINA. <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

Anyway I will have now to depart from this Fed Cup cheering thread, to root for the French team, for the sentimental reason of Nat's retirement. <img src="graemlins/angel.gif" border="0" alt="[Angel]" />

AU REVOIR, my Russian Friends! <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

May the best team win!

Janie, dear, Nat won't play singles in Fed Cup, and she won't retire in doubles, so that makes very little sense.. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

ys,

oh I guess you are right, it doesn't make sense -- I guess I will have to wait till it is underway and see who I end up rooting for! <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

In the end, I will probably root for individual players such as Justine ane Elena D., and whatever country wins, i will probably be really happy, because I like almost all of the participating players. <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" /> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

OK, we can discuss it all we want, but with the selected team we got great, fighting chance to win the whole thing, and we got a good #2, finally.. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Go girls, make us proud!
