View Full Version : What the hell is Russia's problem?

Tatiana Panova wasn't picked again???? What does she have to do to earn a spot on the team? Elena Bovina has barely won a match all year and Panova is going to be ranked 21 in the world next week...closing in on the top spot for Russia. I know Bovina and Likhovtseva are there for doubles and Myskina for the future but Panova should definitely have been chosen for the team :(

Shamil Tarpischev doesn't like her simple reason.
What ever Tatiana does goes against her.

He does like Anna, but she won't be picked.

I too love those zany Russians;but I hate to break
the news to you. It's kind of clique-ish with the
Russian Tennis Federation. They've got their little
darlings and will dish out the roll call accordingly.

It's not that bad you know without Panova the
Russian Jack Russell Terrier running about for
the team. Look at the solid performances that
the ballet star-ish looking Ms. A. Myskina has been
coming up with.

What's the team?? ED, Lina, Elena L, Bovina and
Myskina. Am I correct? (I didn't check the line up
preview news yet). LOL. I'm certain they'll pick
their favorite student pets. Sorry, but they've got
a good chance of winning anyway.

There you go. Mr. Eggy has confirmed that Panova
isn't in Fed Cup next weekend. It's the
Elena X 3 + Myskina. Sounds like the name of
a unit that does Trance remixes.

Go Elena X 3+ Myskina!!
