The russians come in the clear favourites as Medina Garrigues is injured and there isnt much depth in the spanish line up. Sharapva will most likely feature due to the upcoming olympics along side zvonareva, kuznetsova and either Pavlyuchenkova or Kirilenko. The spanish will most likely feature Martinez Sanchez, Suarez Navarro and doubles team Parra Santonja/Llagostera Vives.
I expect a 4-1 singles domination to the russians with a doubles consolation for the spanish.

Spain can be dangerous with CSN and MJMS but MJMS seems injured :p

Also I doubt Vera will play since she's playing Pattaya. Kirilenko is injured so I'm not sure about her. Petrova will probably play because of the Olympics.

This might be a tough one to choose but this is the head to head

Russia 5-1 Spain
Last Meeting: 2008: Russia beat Spain 4-0 (WG F)

And Spain only win was in 1988 when Russia was in the USSR but I will choose Russia.

Medina Garrigues and Martinez Sanchez are injuried. Medina retired in AO 3rd round match against Li Na, and MJMS didn't play in Australia at all...
