One of Tarpischev’s biggest decisions will be who to pick alongside Zvonareva in the second singles position, whether to go for the experience of Kuznetsova, ranked No. 19, or the youth of Pavlyuchenkova, ranked No. 15. Kuznetsova, a two-time Grand Slam champion, is the more established of the pair, but Pavlyuchenkova is an exciting young player and has remained unbeaten in Fed Cup play this season. The Russian captain will also need to decide which two players to put together for what could be a crucial fifth rubber on Sunday. The most likely duo would be Kuznetsova and Pavlyuchenkova, who successfully teamed up in the first round earlier this year.
But will we get to see her play? Kiri's had a much better hard court season than Kuznetsova. I don't think it's close.

Great news :D. I hoped for it but didn't really believe it will happen. I guess she is there for doubles, which could actually be the crucial match in this tie.

I don't think that she'll play singles but doubles if necessary, why not?:)

Congrats Maria!! :) This a pleasant surprise. :)

Hopefully she gets to play.

Does she need to play again next year to be eligible for the Olympics?

I just read Bepa withdrawn due to shoulder injury. Not a good news for Russia...

Maria is obviously not expected to beat Petra.. so well just go out there give it a good shot and good luck. :cheer: Russia are going to struggle anyways without Vera.

I think Russia's potential path to victory is beating Safarova twice and winning the doubles.

Why isn't Maria playing doubles? She has the highest doubles ranking of the Russians.

Re: Fed Cup Final - Kiri is on the team!
 
Well I have a feeling Pavs could play Safarova and Kiri will play the doubles.

Re: Fed Cup Final - Kiri is on the team!
 
Yeah i think so too, they must think that they'll lose both matches against Kvitova, so they'll make Pavs rest for sunday's match against Safarova. Maria beat twice Kvitova in 2009 but the czech improved a bit since then. If there is a decisive double, Maria will be in the team maybe with Sveta or Lena:)
