I wouldn't expect much at all from the Russian Fed Cup team this year. Their singles players are unimpressive and there aren't any good Russia doubles teams. They will struggle just to defeat Croatia.

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

First, follow the link:

second, since we qualified first time for world group in 1999, we make finals every odd year. This yera we'll make finals again. And we'll hopefully win it for a change..

Also, you just realise what is our depth and how fast are we growing..

Remember, just five years we had to play Australia in Perth, on grass.. And, Kournikova is injured, Likhovtseva is no't going, Makarova doesn't play. And Russian #5 back then, Koulikovskaya, has already committed to something else.. So we have only Panova from professional players. And then Bogorodetski takes with him some girls from Spartak club ( it was Rodionova, probably Sysoeva and someone else - all ranked below 300 ) goes to Australia and we win it..

Now we have to play a team that is lead by a Grand Slam champion. And even our third team would easily be a favourite to win it.. And it's just five years.. What is it going to be like in 2008?

I'm a little surprised that Tatiana (Panova) is on the team. I'm her biggest fan, but I think that if she plays a singles rubber (highly unlikely, I know) then the person who lets her is insane. She has lost 7 of her last 9 matches.

It would be nice to see her in dubs, though, as she is always there for Russia.

after Lena's match today, I think it's pretty clear which player is #1 in Russia

And if I were Tarpischev I would be pretty sure of the number 2 as well. Alyona Dementieva without a doubt.
