Zvonareva will boost Russia’s Fed Cup chance against Italy in April.

Russian Fed Cup captain Shamil Tarpishchev says that No. 3 Vera Zvonareva has committed to play the April semifinal against Italy in Russia. Tarpishchev also indicated that Svetlana Kuznetsova might play for the team again and renew her rivalry with Francesca Schiavone, who bested her in a Grand Slam record four hours and 44 minutes at the Australian Open.

“It promises to be a great match,” he said. “However, our team will be strengthened ahead of that tie, as Zvonareva will play for us, so I am counting on us winning that tie.” Two-time defending champion Italy won the two nations’ last tie at home in 2009
