Re: Fed Cup finals
OK so they lost as we all expected. But they fought as hard as they could, and to me a least justified their selection. Proud of Panoava and especially Klybanova who still played while on the road to recovery from a life threatening illness. I wonder how Makarova and the other no-hopers feel now? Makarova citing a wrist injury but still managed to play through to the dubs final!
It was experience that won the cup for Italy
Barnstaple - Great Britain
$75,000 Barnstaple - USD 75,000
Surface : Hard Indoor, Draw : 5 rounds / 32 players, Prize Money : USD 750,000
Latest : F, M. Sirotkina d. K. Pliskova 67(5) 63 76(6)
More and probably better players than Vesnina and Company are making their way up the rankings. I would keep the team that played in this years final, and build on that plus add to the Fed Cup pool. Sharapova and Zovnereva, and Elena Bovina will all be fit for next year hopefull, and will add the experience the younger players lack at present.
