Fed Cup Final

In short, the Russian team is in disarray.

In what was already expected to be a tough encounter in Italy on clay against the likes of Sara Errani, Roberta Vinci and Flavia Pennetta, the Russians find themselves without - for one reason or another - Maria Sharapova (who aside from being injured stated she wouldn't play the final as a respect to those who had got Russia there), Maria Kirilenko (Sofia), Svetlana Kuznetsova (unknown), Ekaterina Makarova (injured), Elena Vesnina (Sofia), Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (Sofia) and Nadia Petrova (injured and is only playing the WTA YEC doubles for the sake of her partner).

Whatever team the Russians end up with will be significant underdogs against a strong Italy team. The 1/2 available on Italy lifting the Fed Cup will surely start to nosedive once this news starts to filter out. The time to move is now with a maximum five point selection.
