Re: Fed Cup 2013.

Is this world group or a playoff? I'm guessing a playoff.

Re: Fed Cup 2013.

I suppose Maria will play this week-end. Hopefully she will win.

Re: Fed Cup 2013.

So i am thinking now you trust my source that Kirilenko is no longer playing doubles?

“I actually stopped playing doubles and decided to concentrate on my singles,” Kirilenko commented. “I think it was a logical decision because I feel that I am playing well in singles and if you play doubles, you lose so much energy so I want to focus all my efforts on trying to improve my singles game.”

I believed you, just asked for the source beacuse I wanted to read the interview, nothing else.

Re: Fed Cup 2013.

She's playing quite bad by now, it's unbelievable how she struggles that much when trying to take advantage of those weak serves, it's a real shame if we consider how great her return could be.

Re: Fed Cup 2013.

She started to play some wonderful points as soon as I send the post. Sweet.

Her voice during the interview was quite weird indeed. I hope she'll be fine for Doha (but Pattaya-Moscow-Doha is not good for colds).

Re: Fed Cup 2013.

Maria won for her country and team and that was her job today. Kiri has gone from the freezing Moscow cold to the oppressive Sydney heat to the Melbourne heat to the Thailand heat to the freezing Moscow cold in only 1 month. What a crazy schedule. No wonder she has a cold and is tired. Makiri may have jet lag too. If she is not feeling well after this tie she should rest for a week or 2.

Re: Fed Cup 2013.

I hope she'll be fine for Doha, which in my opinion is way more important than Fed Cup. Will she play tomorrow too?

I think so, she'll have to play Morita tomorrow..
I also would prefer to see her in fine health conditions for Doha..but playing FedCup for Russia does mean a lot to her
