It's not until September 17-18. We don't know if everyone will be healthy then.

At this point I'd say Russia because of how Myskina elevates her game in Fed Cup. If there is ever a time where she will beat Mauresmo it is in fed cup even though she lost the last time they played in fed cup.

GOVEN RELISHING ROLAND GARROS CLASH

France Fed Cup captain George Goven believes Roland Garros is the ideal setting for his team to exact revenge on Russia in the competition final in September.

Amelie Mauresmo, Mary Pierce and Severine Beltrame thrashed Spain in their last-four tie at the weekend to book their place in the final for the third consecutive time.

Les Bleus won the title in 2003 before Guy Forget guided them to the final in 2004 where they lost to Russia, and Forget has since handed the reins of the women's team to Goven.

The formidable Russians, led by Anastasia Myskina and Elena Dementieva, hammered the United States 4-1 at the weekend.

Goven, however, remains confident his girls can triumph with the advantage of playing on home soil.

"Playing a Fed Cup final at Roland Garros with such an exceptional public is simply magical," said Goven.

Playing on clay may not suit the French, as Myskina won the French Open in Paris in 2004, while the rest of the Russian team also boast a great record on that surface.

"The Russians are the best players in the world," added Goven.

"When you see the number of them that are in the top 20, it's impressive.

"The Russians are as good on clay as on hardcourts. The surface that could have been in our favour was grass but there is none in France."
