Russia Tops Israel; Makes Fed Cup Semis
Behind Maria Sharapova, Russia blasted by Israel in the reverse singles to take their quarterfinal Fed Cup match staged in Israel today. Sharapova had little trouble with Israel's number one player, Shahar Pe'er, winning 6-1, 6-1. Pe'er could not muster any comeback against the Aussie Open champion similar to the one she staged yesterday. In the other singles match, Anna Chakvetadze beat Tzipi Obziler 6-0, 6-4 to clinch the match for Russia.
