Fed Cup

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Elena Dementieva and Nadia Petrova will lead champions Russia in next month's first round Fed Cup tie against Belgium.

With Anastasia Myskina, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Maria Sharapova unavailable, Russia captain Shamil Tarpishchev has called up Fed Cup newcomer Maria Kirilenko and Dinara Safina for the April 22-23 clash in Liege.

Former world number ones Justine Henin-Hardenne and Kim Clijsters are expected to lead the Belgium team.

Former French Open champion Myskina is taking a year off from her Fed Cup duties while 2004 Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova has skipped the tie because it is held on clay.

Myskina, along with Safina, helped Russia win the 2005 Fed Cup title over France

Fantastic! After her heroics last year with Dementieva, Dinara must be really looking forward to more Fed Cup action. I wasn't even convinced she'd be named to the team this year, so this rocks!
