so the team is Petrova, Kuznetsova, Zvonareva and Vesnina!!:eek:

where are Chakvetadze, Safina, Poutchkova, Kirilenko, Bardina, Likhovtseva:confused: :confused:

Anyway Petrova, Kuznetsova and even Zvonareva will do their job in singles:rolleyes:

She's playing doubles with Chakvetadze, not Likhovtseva.

OK;)

sounds good to me! I think he should have called Zvonareva who is a very good doubles player instead of Vesnina.

But I think this is a strategy for the 2008 Olympics

All season she has played with Elena - thats what I mean to qualify her for the olympics next season :)

Tarpischev said Zvonareva caught some virus and couldn't play.

So the doubles team for this tie will be Chak/Vesnina and not Petrova/Kuznetsova?

Unless doubles macth is the decider I think yes.

I wouldn't let someone play for my country who lost 0-6 0-6 just weeks before against Shuai Peng.

Which is extremely unlikely considering Russia is fielding its best claycourters and both Medina and Domínguez Lino have been mediocre or downright sucky as of late, even on clay.

Thanks.

Tarpishev is such a clever guy,he knows who is going to handle pressure and perform.Member he put Safina in with Dementieva in the Fed Cup Final,the nailbitting rubber,Safina showed ALOT of determination and heart.Vesnina may be another up and coming top 10 player,this russian coach is rarely proved wrong......

He had no choice back then. Myskina was completely down and 4th player was Dushevina. Dementieva-Safina was the only possible combination.

Vesnina may be another up and coming top 10 player,this russian coach is rarely proved wrong......

:lol: :tape: :help:

Shamil is a smart coach
he is rotating around the Fed Cup players so there will be alot of players eligable to play in the Beijing Olympics

I believe Chakvetadze will be eligable now

Vesnina is in terrible form. Last year he played Kirilenko over Safina in a huge match, so I thought he would pick Kirilenko.

Vesnina is in the biggest slump of her career.
I don't think Tarpishev will make her play.

I would have asked someone who's never played Fed Cup, like Olga or Yari.
