MOSCOW, RUSSIA: Defending champions Italy travel to Moscow to face a strong Russian side in the World Group semifinals without the services of their top two players, Francesca Schiavone and Flavia Pennetta.

However, their absence has promoted Roberta Vinci and Sara Errani, who have played largely support roles during their Fed Cup careers so far, into the singles line-up, and Vinci is looking forward to the added responsibility.
