The team:

Mauresmo
Pierce
Dechy
Golovin

I doubt Tati will play but praticising with the other girls will be a good experience, as well as being around Fed Cup Captain Georges Goven. The Russian team is Myskina, Dementieva, Safina, and Douchevina. Given recent form and all, I'd say France are the clear favorites.

Glad Tati is in the team. Practicing with Amelie and Mary will allow her to improve her game level hopefully. It's a good preparation before the chinese tournaments.

Tati is French #4. Yay. She would most probably play doubles though. I hope, because Tati/Nat is a great pair.

Allez France. Bring the Fed Cup title back.

Tati and Nat will probably be penciled in to be the doubles team, but she won't play doubles if its 2-2; I don't think they would have that much faith in her

The chance of Tati playing single is slim. I hope France takes it this year. Tati was devastated last year losing to Russia. It's payback time :armed:.

That will hurt so much if we loose this one.
Last year we thought we had no chance at first (not at home, on hard, without Momo, Tati's debut, against the best team full of top 10 players etc...but started believing when Nat brought a point against Kuznetsova and Tati was so close against Myskina and won against Kuznetsova. It could have been ours if the doubles team of Bartoli/Loit had been more experienced and agressive. So in the end despite the fact we were the underdogs, it still hurt.
This time i really hope they'll make it. They haven't the right to loose.
Then i hope another team like Serbia for exemple could win it next year. It will get so boring if it's always Russia and France in the final...

Allez tati! :bounce: I think even herself she didn't expect to be selected. Good news!

i see V. Razzno is on the team now. (i spelled it wrong) she better not be taking Tati's chance to play!

The French too seemed to be concentraing on the task in hand, with Amelie Mauresmo hitting ferociously against Virginie Razzano, currently the fifth member of the squad and not in the named four-woman team.

So Yay Tati is still in the team.

Harju.
Sep 15th, 2005, 04:55 PM
Pierce, who joined the team on Tuesday with a slight thigh injury picked up at the US Open, and Mauresmo are expected to play in the singles, while Tatiana Golovin and Nathalie Dechy should feature in the doubles on Sunday.

unfortunately, tati wasn't selected for either singles or doubles. france is using dechy/mauresmo as the doubles team. i guess tati might get a chance to play if either country clinches the tie early.

Harju.
Sep 16th, 2005, 11:54 AM
well i hope tati could play the tie. so here's hoping momo and pierce clinch the deal. cheers :aparty:.

i really wish tatix could play though. it seems like after the us open she's just a couple wins away from actually being good again.

the reason why Tati wasn't selected is because she doesn't usually do well on clay unless playing mix with R.Gasquet(they've won last year for those who didn't know)
and she has been injured in her ankle for a while now and so as Virginie Razzano.

Exactly. It's not like she's robbed. She even said in the French press before the selection that she wouldn't be surprised if she wasn't selected seing her current form and results but that she'll still be behind the other girls and the team anyway. It's a pleasant surprise that she was selected.
We don't need more supporters since we're all behind our girls with all our heart as if we had three of them, in fair-play, no matter the result, in joy or in pain but if you don't do that against heart (if so you shouldn't bring us bad vibes so please support Russia, we don't need you :devil: ) thank you for supporting our Fed Cup Team. :)

PARIS, Sept 17 (Reuters) - France captain Georges Goven hinted on Saturday Mary Pierce might not play in the second day of the Fed Cup final against Russia at Roland Garros on Sunday.

Pierce seemed to run out of steam in her 7-6 2-6 6-1 defeat by Elena Dementieva in the opening singles match on Saturday. Amelie Mauresmo then put France level at 1-1 by beating Anastasia Myskina 6-4 6-2.

The 30-year-old Pierce has had little time to recover from her run to the U.S. Open final, which she lost to Belgium's Kim Clijsters a week ago. Her right thigh was heavily strapped during her match against Dementieva on Saturday.

Pierce is scheduled to play Myskina in the second of Sunday's reverse singles.

"It's a possibility we can't rule out," Goven said when asked whether she might be replaced by Nathalie Dechy or teenager Tatiana Golovin.

"She will undergo medical tests and we will decide after that. Tatiana and Nathalie are both ready to play. If Mary can't play, she will tell us."

Pierce said she would accept whatever decision Goven might make.

"I'm ready to play but it's the captain's choice," said Pierce. "If he feels another player can do a better job, fine."

so it seems that Tati might get a chance at singles if Mary doesn't play. however i would think that Dechy would get a shot a singles before Tati, but then again we don't know how things went in practice. Dechy isn't know for being a great clay court player either. i did see a picture from FED Cup practice and Tati's right ankle wasn't tapped. i can't find it now, but hopfully its a good sign. i just hope Tati gets to play this weekend sometime.

I'd love to see Tati playing! But honestly I really doubt it.
It would be too much pressure on Tati if she played.
She is sooo cute and lovely cheering for her team mates :kiss: .
French TV loves her as they just show her all the time. I am always overexcited when I watch her... :lick:

but didn't Tati handle the pressure last year in the final? she was playing with France down 1-2 and against the US Open champ, and then killed her. i think Tati just has to remember how to handle her self in those kind of matches, remember how to do it. Tati was also mentally strong against Venus this year on clay. Tati's mental ability is there, she just needs to remember how to react in those types of play.

im not trying to bash your post, just stating my point of view. :) :wavey:

Well said, mr yukon. (:ras: @ martirogi)

Whomever Myskina plays in the second tie, she's soo going to win IMO. (Yes, sadly that's include tati).

It all boils down on double tie IMO. But still, Allez FRANCE.

I am quiet unhappy with the way they are ignoring Tati...
Of course Mauresmo and Pierce are numbers 1 and 2, but not to let her a chance to play doubles is not fair... Last year they were really happy to have Tatiana, she was able to win against ranked n°5 and give a chance to France, and now they just made her come for nothing, like if she was useless... not very fair I think...
Anyway... Go France!!

Sep 18th, 2005, 04:17 PM
the doubles team should have been Momo & Nat, Pierce must be tired. About Tati not playing, she's obsviously the weakest player at the moment, she sucks in doubles and clay's probably her worst surface, so IMO it was wiser to not let her play this time. Sad but true :(

yukon145
Sep 18th, 2005, 06:16 PM

It sucks that France lost, on paper they really should have won. But Amelie choked, and I think Pierce was too tired to be put into doubles.

what did she say?
In one of the interviews the guy asked her something like " so Tatiana what are your feelings today since you were born in Russia ? " and she said that she has always considered herself as a French girl and never as a Russian and added GO FRANNNNNNNNCE :) .Then she said that it wouldn't have been that bad if it had rained ( cuz it was very cloudy at this time ) because Mary seemed very tired ( it was when Mary was playing against Dementieva :sad: ).
