Russia won the Fed Cup for the second straight year Sunday, with the doubles team of Elena Dementieva and Dinara Safina beating France's Amelie Mauresmo and Mary Pierce 6-4, 1-6, 6-3 for a 3-2 victory. Dementieva, who also won both her singles matches, sank to her knees in celebration after Mauresmo hit a forehand long on match point at Roland Garros.
