I don't even have words...the fuck is this. :hysteric: I don't care if it's not true I had to say something about this. :lol:

@SI_BTBaseline Beyond The Baseline
In Mother Russia, invoice pays you: The USTA has billed Russia $75k for Bogomolov's defection. Russians won't confirm whether they'll pay.

@TennisReporters Matt Cronin
Meanwhile, word is Vlad Putin, who is wary of Right Cause party's progress, has offered Chakvetdaze 2 US in lieu of payment for Bolgomolov

And then there's more.

@TennisReporters Matt Cronin
Other possibility is Russia OKs fast track request of Petrova's US citizenship & ITF waiving residency rule so NP can play US Fed Cup in 12

I could see Nadia wanting to move to US. But Chaky? This is like forced exile!

for the record, I think Matt Cronin is high on something... :D

haha this is quite funny! On a business point of view accepting Petrova would be quite stupid, she's on the verge of retirement. Getting CHakky would be good and better for her as well I thnk. I know she loves russia so I doubt she'd consider it but with the robbery and the scare she had, she'd be better living in another country.

That being said lol why was Bogomolov fine for defection? What did he do? lol and it's completly silly to exchange players to pay that fine lol.

The Chak thing was just a joke. Not a funny one, of course.

Oh thank goodness! People like Jokevetadze should never be given citizenship.

She wouldn't want it even if you paid her yourself.

The only thing I'd ever pay her for is to get lost. :wavey:

Considering he didn't use BREAKING I figured it was screwy. :lol: Wonder if the Nadia bit has merit though?

Did not know Nadia was immigrating to the US. Where is she based in the US?

USTA should really stop this. Making Russia pay for Bogomolov? Did Czechoslovakia make them pay for Navratilova and Lendl? Did Yugoslavia make them pay for Seles? Did South Africa make them pay for Huber? What about Uzbekistan making them pay for Lepchenko? The list goes on and on. I am a USTA member but I think this is ridiculous :shrug:

I don't think the Chakvetadze bit was serious :lol:

Petrova may switch :shrug:. She hasn't played Fed Cup in a while so it wouldn't surprise me. Then again, aren't Nadia and Kirilenko planning on playing doubles together at the Olympics? :unsure:

Why would US want a local like Chakvetadze? They should not even take her for free. Useless.
