there is no way Bovina will be playing the way she is right now

Myskina and Dementieva are in for sure
i'd pick Petrova as #3 singles (she might get in ahead of one of others anyway)
and Vera Zvonareva if she can get released from WTT commitments
Likhovtseva is also playing WTT

Lina and Alyona are the only Top Russians playi ng regularly together.
if Vera can't be released then Lina might get picked.
as its clay i'd go for Sveta instead of her.

Good luck to my favs

Bovina is on the team??? why not to use thisn opportunity to bring some fresh blood? Lena B. doesn't deserve to be there. Not at this time.

Petrova is not on the team? I would prefer her over Nastya... But i'm comfortable with the decision to use ranking for available payers.

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

I wonder what they were thinking, I mean Likhotseva for doubles OK, but Bovina? Shes doing well in the mixed, but appart from that, she has no doubles experience of much worth (as much as I love her!). I would think maybe put Elena Band Elena L in, if the other two win singles match day one, and then win the doubles.

The nominations are not announced. On the Fed Cup site are shown the girls who played in the 1st round.

I think lovely Likhovtseva may have played in her last Fed Cup tie. Although she is the best Russian doubles player.

Vera Zvonareva has to be on the team! Only Myskina and Dementieva should be playing ahead of her. And maybe Petrova.

Who will the fifth player be?

You can't leave Vera Z. out. In doubles maybe Petrova/Dementieva, and Myskina play in singles.

So miss Bovina was picked ahead of Nadya. That I don§t understand. I hope there is a reason behind the choice.

Lena only won three games against Masha.
The rankings must be the only method for choosing the team.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I'm surprised N. Petrova isn't picked. You could use her in doubles.
