Nice picture!

Does the Davis Cup stay in Russia until the Davis Cup finals in early December?

We might end up having a almost completely new crew for the semis. Panova is out. Bovina is sick. Dementieva is injured. And Nastya's form is not encouraging at all..

So, it looks like we might play a team of
Myskina, Zvonareva, Likhovtseva and .. Safina? Kuznetsova? Or Dementieva? Or someone else?

And now we haev a "problem", don't ya think?

Because, we play Slovenia on red clay, meaning that Nadya and Vera are in, no matter what, any other selection would be plain silly. Then one of Nastya, Alyona and Lena will have to be left out.

Nastya and Vera have WTT commitments. I am not sure that Russian Tennis Federation will agree to buy out both of them. I think, based on latest results, Elena B. should be left in reserve.. But she is all-rounder. Will Shamil select by rankings again leaving Nadya out?

Also, if we win, and get a chance to host the finals, which surface would it be?

finals would be indoors no question about it

all of our girls or 90% of them prefer Indoors.

Slovenia tie:
Nadya should be in team for sure.
Alyona will be in for sure.

leaves two others. Nadya can play doubes as well. Lena B should be #3
so that leaves either Nastya or Vera to be bought out of WTT.

my selection:
Nastya or Vera
Alyona
Lena B
Nadya

Good luck to my favs

Sure, indoors, but what indoors? Clay? Hard? Carpet?

Now imagine US team of Williamsx2 and Davenport coming. Do you expect us to choose carpet? They'll kill anyone on carpet.

To neutralise Americans we'd need clay. To neutralise Belgians we need
Decoturf.
On carpet either team will be better than us by miles.

If Vera beats her in quarters, what would be reasons for that?

Alyona will be in for sure.
No argument here.
