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

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.

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

Yes whats the Russians thinking, playing in the speedskating arena on clay :eek:[/IMG]
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.
