Russian Women Tennis Players Takes Successful Start In Federation Cup Tournament

On the second day of the final tournament of the women's world team tennis championship - the Federation Cup - which began on November 7 night the Russians will meet with the team of Argentina. Captain of the Russian team Shamil Tarpishchev is most likely to field the same players who took a successful start in the tournament on the day before in the match with the Czech Republic's team. Yelena Dementyeva who ranks 15th in the world rating list and debutante of the national team Yelena Bovina (49th) played in singles, while Yelena Likhovtseva (36th) and Nadezhda Petrova (38th) played in doubles. The team won 2-1. It will be the start match for today's opponents of the Russian players. The Argentinian team at the tournament includes Paola Suares (26th in the world rating list), Maria Emilia Salerni (122th), Claricia Fernandes (124th), and Laura Montalvo specialising in doubles. Another match of the teams playing, like the Russians, in group A is also to be held on Thursday - the French squad will play with the Czech Republic. The third match, Germany versus Australia, will be held in group B which consists of the national teams of Belgium, Spain, Germany and Australia. On Wednesday the Belgians beat the Germans (3-0), and the Spanish team won over the Australians (3-0).

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
