Russian Fed Cup team announced

The team for Russia's Fed Cup final with Spain has been selected. Its members are Svetlana Kuznetsova, Vera Zvonareva, Ekaterina Makarova, and Elena Vesnina. The top players, other than Kuznetsova, are missing, but it isn't exactly a bad team. In fact, there is some considerable talent on that team.

Spain's team members are: Anabel Medina Garrigues, Carla Suarez-Navarro, Nuria Llagostera Vives, and Virginia Ruano Pascual. That, too, is a strong Fed Cup team; both Medina Garrigues and Llagostera Vives are unbeaten in Fed Cup singles matches this year.

The final will be played September 13-14 in Madrid. This is the first time Russia and Spain have ever met in the final.
