I believe Russia made their debut in the World Group in 1993 and has stayed there since.

I remember times when Igor was decent... Shame, I even can`t call him Kirilenkov now. :sad:

Shoulder injury. And it's not over until it's over with Brazil in the playoffs. A catastrophe like Bellucci losing both and Dutra Silva losing to Gabashvili is always possible (remember India and Ecuador).
