Re: Fed Cup 2014, World Group 1 Play-Off: Russia vs Argentina

Russia is taking a risk by choosing clay. Paula has won 11 matches in fed cup and all of them on clay!

Jorgelina Cravero - Maria Irigoyen


Paula Ormaechea - Flor Molinero - Pitu Salerni - Paola Suarez - Betina Jozami - Erica Krauth - Rossana De Los Rios - Verónica Spiegel - Ana Clara Duarte - Gisela Dulko

But this season she is not good on clay. She was very poor vs Arruabarrena in Monterrey with lot of problems with serve, and that was only few days ago.

Monterrey is hard not clay, but yeah I don't see Argentina having much of a chance here. Russia is the favorite to win all 5 rubbers. Of course there are always upsets, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

If they chose hard then Vesnina and Makarova may not have played so....

Our only chances rely on Vesnina playing the way she plays every final

Had the tie been on hardcourts I don't Russia would have Vesnina and Makarova playing. We're in the middle of the clay court season and switching surfaces like that would not be welcomed by any top player.
