Tarpischev is an idiot. Please discuss...

he'll get Vera and Maria to play next round of the FedCup... even at the expense of higher ranked Russian girls... or it could be bye-bye Masha in a hurry...

Vassilissa is my girl............

he should get masha to play but i don't know about vera. vera is playing great and consistently but petrova is also playing great and imo playing better. there is also myskina and dementieva and i guess bovina and kuznetsova have a chance as well as lina k. but bovina, lina k and dementieva and inconsistent in their results and myskina is in bad form while kuzntesova maybe isn't quite at the standard of the others. i definately think it is between masha, vera and nadia. what surface will it be played on?

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

I have no clue what court - probably hard court. What I mean it would have been more political move to play young players... once they play for Russia it will be more difficult for them to start playing for other countries...

Elena D. is a safe choice for Tarpischev, as Nastya, Lina and Lenas.

He needs to get Vera, Maria, Nadia and Sveta on board asap

with all due respect even "lower" ranked Russians shouldn't have problem winning against Slovenia...

btw, I just looked up and it's on red clay

so I guess playing Masha on red clay is not what Russian captain would do, but Vera, Nadia and Sveta could win the tie

sorry i didn't know they were playing slovenia. ok then of course masha and vera should play and it would also be good to put sveta in the team although i think in the future dinara will probably be the better player out of sveta and dinara so maybe it would be a good idea to get her in on it as well maybe even before sveta is put in.

Why?
If it is for Olympics, the player does not have to play Fed Cup, she actually has to make herself available and that's enough. If it is for her potential switch to USA, I think it has no ground. Even Anna didn't do that. And Masha, with her old links to Kafelnikov, is very unlikely to do that. She simply does not need it at this point.

And Vera is selected for playing Slovenia, but WTT is a problem. If it is solved, she'll play.

masha isn't too bad on red clay, she did qualify for RG and then gave serna an in-form good clay court player a toughish match.

I'm more than sure BJK wouldn't mind to have her on the team... There are could be lots of incentives that we could only guess...

And beating a team of Srebotnik, Matevjic and Pisnik on clay at Slovenia doesn't look like a walk in the park to me.

they are quite a tough team, now that i know the surface and who is playing. vera can certainly get on top of all those players. i ahven't seen masha on red clay so i can't comment on her when it comes to this level of play (they are all very good clay court players). clay is apparently sveta's best or favourite surface and she had that tough macth against shaughnessy this year at RG and shaughnessy has been to the 4th round at RG before if i'm not mistaken. masha and sveta could be put in the team but it would be a bit of a gamble and they might not pull through. vera should certainly be on the team and i would also think petrova will be picked.

Most possible and reasonable choice for the tie is Nastya, Alyona D, Vera and Nadya. Masha is very doubtful to be picked to play on clay. It`s a hard tie and Masha will be called just to sit on the bench. Shamil won`t let a junior play decisive matches. Then why call her? Just to be sure she won`t change her nationality? Well if she is going to change it if she`s not called to the team then let her do it.

Offtop: The tie will be played at the resort Pordoroz at the Adriatic sea. I made up my mind and will go there.

What do you think Masha`s chances are to be called in the US team, when the Williamses, Rubin, Capriati, Davenport are on the top of their form? Next to zero. So if she changes her nationality that is because she just wants to change it, not because she is not getting a call. And if she wants to change her nationality she can alwais find an excuse. Masha is a good prospect, but to bring her in the team ahead of the already established and higher-ranked players - is equal to destroy the team`s spirit.

well the usa a bit short of top talent for the future so they might want to get to masha before russia do. but that is just a possibility that could occur.
