Good luck to the US team. Too bad Serena and Lindsay couldn't be there.

I'm not sure if they cleared up the "issues" - but there was problems between Myskina and Sharapova's father and Myskina said she wouldn't play Fed Cup if he was there. But i think they solved them?

Surely if Myskina is the one with the problem she should withdraw from the team and allow the higher ranked player to take her rightful place in the team? Or is there more to this? Are the rest of the players against Maria Sharapova playing?.

Looks like Venus will have to do it all....

How is Craybas on clay??...she'll probably play no.2 singles if it's based on current form..

It will be Venus/Morariu for doubles right? That would be the best combo. if it came down to a 2-2 tie...

Maria Sharapova refused the invitation to play Fed Cup this year! This has nothing to do with Anastasia.

From what I understand Sharapova has been offered the chance to play but turned it down in favour of having a break/recovering from Wimbledon. (Russia are also missing Kuznetsova & Petrova, who are both top 10ers).

Maria has plenty of time to play Fed Cup for Russia. But just not this time.

I think that Maria would rather prepare herself for taking #1 during the hardcourt season. ;)
