It had to have been Dementieva's choice not to play. There is no way that a girl who has so much dedication and pride for her country and is one of the most talented and popular girls of her country not be chosen.

Cause the Russian Captain is a retard!! :mad:yes..he is a :retard:
he has ignored Lena since the beginning of this yr...:ras:

Momo even said...LenaD is the only one Russian she is scared of...
and me sure she is happy with the damn stupid decision of Shamil...
Even the captain of france said Shamil is weird...
and if Lena played for France he would surely take her :hearts:

Seriously Likhotseva over Dementieva? :retard:

one reason for that is they have to use LenaL for doubles :rolleyes:

but the captain should replace Bepa with lenaD :mad:

wrote this earlier in another post:

this russia-austria matchup in russia no less, has the makings of a horrible russian beatdown. And more importantly than that, Anastasia will be able to get good rest in her own home and wont even have to go full blast to kill her opposition. yeah yeah talk about respect your opponents and all those trite sayings but this is gonna be legalized assault.

Zvonareva over Dementieva? :confused:

Zvonareva over Sharapova...will Masha ever play for her country? :tape:

This is the same team as it was last time. The team including players and coach wanted to keep the succesful team. Why change a winning team? ;)

Likhotseva will play doubles. Do you think Dementieva is better doubles player?

Such a pity Babsi Schett injured, especially as she says she will retire after the Oz Open. Babs played so well against the USA - always inspired playing for her country - more like the old Babsi form wise too.

C'mon Mary!!

I wonder if Svetlana will be less flat than at YEC. Hope so.

Russia will easily overcome Austria and then take the Fed cup ;)

Kuznetsova and Likhovtseva are not playing well as a team at the moment.

Forget remplace Mauresmo par Bartoli
Suite au forfait d’Amélie Mauresmo, c’est un Guy Forget déçu de la décision de la numéro 2 mondiale qui a fait appel à Marion Bartoli.

Sur le site de la FFT, Guy Forget a confié que le forfait de Mauresmo était un «coup dur pour l’équipe mais aussi une grande déception. Je savais depuis trois semaines que c’était quelque chose qui pouvait se produire, parce qu’elle m’en avait déjà parlé. Mais j’y ai cru jusqu’au bout et j’ai essayé de faire valoir des arguments pour la faire changer d’avis.» Pour la remplacer, le capitaine de l’équipe de France a appelé Marion Bartoli.

Masha chose to make herself unavaliable

Who will play for France, Marion or Loit? (In other thread they said Loit)

Who will play for France, Marion or Loit? (In other thread they said Loit)From what I read, Loit (who was a reserve) will replace Amélie, and Bartoli will replace Loit as the reserve player.

I'm quite surprised at Marion for agreeing to do this, as she had said in the past that she wouldn't play Fed Cup unless she could play singles. But I'm glad she's now had a change of heart :)

Even though Momo's not playing, I'm still rooting for France ;) ALLEZ!!!

I think that it's perhaps the best thing for Sharapova not to play in Fed Cup. It's again held in Russia, so she should again travel over there; after her busy season she might need some rest. I also often wonder if the other russian girls get along with Maria..? They did not grow up together and perhaps she has more adjusted to the 'western or american life' than the others.

Definitely ...a Russia vs France final...

Spain and Austria...
Sad to say...
No chance at all... :) ;)

Without Momo, Spain has a chance.
But I also think this will be a Russqia-France final w/ Russians taking their 1st title.

I hope Tati and Mary will play singles and I hope i'll see this on Tv( the bad thing is that if they show it onb French telly, Conchita will not be there so once again, I wobn't see her! Damn, I haven't seen one single of her matches in 2004, what a pity ! )

Well, I'm not really patriotic, but as Conchi doesn't play and two of my overall faves play for france, I'll support French team !!
Allez les filles!!

Hmm, I think Mauresmo pulling out changes things. I think now Spain has a chance against France; Pierce should win both her singles, but Spain should take the doubles, and should have a chance in the remaining singles ties. I guess Russia will win the whole thing. Still, Vamos Espana! ;) :D
