Well it wasn't a complete waste for Maria as I believe she needed this Fed Cup tie to be eligible for the Olympics.

Re: Fed Cup Final - Kiri is on the team!

sounds like Maria injured her leg during practice which is why she didn't play on Sunday. Not good. Supposedly, she needs about 10 days to recover.

That is bad news. Maria had just made the top 20 again and she is having a good season thus far. She does not need another leg inury. Makiri has played so much tennis the past 10 years or so I wonder how her slender legs can hold up for a few more years of punishment. I know Kiri works hard and has added some muscle and slightly stronger legs than she used to have but if she can't run well she can't win so it's vital her legs are healthy.

Yes Protoss I suppose Maria is eligible to be on the Russian Olympic team now. I just can't believe team Russia got owned by Jelena Jankovic the way they did.

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

That injury could indeed explain why she didn't play instead of Pavly. Bad news

It's just crazy how she's injured as soon as she's playing well

She's resting this week so we'll see in Estoril
