YOUR FWTA PREVIEW

SEMI FINAL CLASH 1


Defending Champions USA are 2 players down in their Semi-Final clash against surprise packet-France. Fed Cup veterans Jennifer Capriati and Jamea Jackson, both very passionate Fed Cup devotees, will strive to reclaim the Fed Cup trophy for their nation. Whilst on paper, Capriati and Jackson should easily overcome Golovin and Mauresmo who are ranked much lower in the FWTA Rankings, the beauty of Fed Cup is that the rankings do not matter here as the French team proved in their 1st round clash against a powerhouse Eastern Europe team which featured FWTA giants - Ivanovic, Maleeva, Bondarenko and Jankovic.

Prediction: You can't go past the Americans.

SEMI FINAL CLASH 2

Russia enters the semi finals with 2 players less as well to even the Australian duo of Alicia Molik and Jelena Dokic. What is in store will be a very entertaining couple of days with in-form Maria Sharapova confident over her recent Charleston win, joined with doubles partner Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Whilst Pavlyuchenkova has had a forgettable 2009 singles year, the Pavlyuchenkova/Sharapova doubles team are the team to beat this season and this rubber may just come down to whoever wins the doubles match.

Prediction: Too close to call, however i will go with Russia
