Maybe it is not too bad after all, she is on the EL for the 10K in St Petersburg during X-mas. Withdrawl deadline has passed and she is still on the EL and made it to the MD. Let's wait and see if she really will play.
Vitalia Diatchenko - Ekaterina Makarova - Masha Kirilenko - Masha Sharapova - Alisa Kleybanova - Alexandra Panova - Ksenia Pervak - Valeria Solovyeva
Good luck to all russian players
