And now we haev a "problem", don't ya think?
Because, we play Slovenia on red clay, meaning that Nadya and Vera are in, no matter what, any other selection would be plain silly. Then one of Nastya, Alyona and Lena will have to be left out.
Nastya and Vera have WTT commitments. I am not sure that Russian Tennis Federation will agree to buy out both of them. I think, based on latest results, Elena B. should be left in reserve.. But she is all-rounder.
Will Shamil select by rankings again leaving Nadya out?
Also, if we win, and get a chance to host the finals, which surface would it be?
