MYSKINA OUT OF FED CUP: Anastasia Myskina, currently the 12th-ranked player in the world, said she decided Wednesday morning she will not play in the Fed Cup for Russia this year.

"(The commitment) is too much for me," Myskina said. "This year I want to play for myself. I put a lot of energy into the team. I've played every time they asked me, and I'm always ready to play if they need me, but it's been too much."

Russia has won the last two Fed Cups and Myskina has been a star on those teams. In those two years, Myskina went 9-3 in singles matches and 1-0 in doubles matches. Russia is slated to play Belgium on April 22-23.

As a Myskina fan, I support her decision. It's ironic that I JUST had the Tennis Channel become available and Fed Cup will be broadcast there. It would have given me a rare opportunity to watch Nastya play on television where I live. Oh well, that's the way it goes. I'm looking forward to Nastya focusing her effort more on her individual goals because I think she burned herself out a bit in the past with too many obligations.

If it's so important then why isn't Masha playing? Scared that Kuzzy and the other Russians will beat her up?
Anyway, Fed Cup isn't important anyway. iT HAS NONE OF THE HISTORY OF THE DAVIS CUP ETC

The right decision, she's done enough. I hope the extra time she devotes to herself pays off on the court.

Comeback 2004 Myskina. *\o/*

Actually its because she is concentrating on singles at the moment, she has hung out with the russians many a time on the tour and has said of her desire to play so its very doubtful she is scared my friend
