I wonder who will be on the Russian team. Right now, Dinara and Maria makes sense.

Russia has only lost one tie since 2003. That was at Belgium with Justine and Kim playing both days.
But this will be a challenge.

and fact is that 3pts is enough for overall win.
I expect to see Sveta and Dinara like first Tarpishev clay options, and 3-0 leading after three matches (3-2 or 4-1 at end).

I really think Maria won´t play. I mean, she will be listed, and one week left, she will withdraw. That´s what Maria looks like, unfortunately.

I really think Maria wonīt play. I mean, she will be listed, and one week left, she will withdraw. Thatīs what Maria looks like, unfortunately.At 21 Maria is already by far best Russian WTA player of all time, but at clay she is just "one of"... This is Olympic year and she is by far best Russian hope for madal in singles - so forced her to play this summer against weak Spain (in comparation with best Russian girls) FED CUP final at clay or doubles in Beijing is not help Russia at all and will only trouble Maria. If Tarpischev will ask of MARIA to go in Madrid it probably bee KIRILENKO which this season prove herself like good claycourt player (but she will be still like #4 option).

I know scheduling and everything, but why pass on an opportunity to win that trophy being active on the team :shrug: Its a thing kind of everyone would like to have on her résumé :ras: So, I think she'll go, but I dont think she'll play more than one match.

I doubt Maria will play.
My dream Russian Fed Cup Team
Myskina, Sveta, Dinara and Elena D.
But Myskina won't play obviously, so instead of her is Vesnina:)

dinara clay queen and sveta clay citizen against the spaniards :hearts: maria should play doubles with chaky or something so she can still be part of the victory, and russia can win with the perfect team. :hearts:

o so just bring her along for the win, have her do nothing:rolleyes:, she would be dead weight. After seeing her Roland Garros performance, I hope Russia doesn't choose her.
If Maria plays, Go Spain, but if Maria doesn't play, Go Russia:)

You must be talking about Kirilenko. Sharapova can't even spell doubles, much less play doubles. ;)

:shrug: there's a fair chance she and chaky might win if she plays doubles...
but really, she was critical in the tie against israel. can't just dump her in the finals.
