The Russians got lucky with Petrova. She has saved the Russian team. Elena D. can't carry them alone. Can she? Udachi Russia! I hope Russia upsets Belgium! I hope the day off helps.
Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
I must say that it turned out to be a smart tactical move by Shamil T. With a strong #2 player like Nadia, at least it takes some pressure off from Elena D. Nadia has really impressed many with her power game and strong serve as well as her doubles versatility skills.
<br />And judging from the post-match comments by Nadia and Elena, they are preferring to face Belgium instead of Spain.
<br />All I want to say is All the best Team Russia!!!
