MOSCOW, RUSSIA: With this year's Fed Cup by BNP Paribas Final only a day away, the stars of the tie give their thoughts on what should prove to be a thrilling contest.

Svetlana Kuznetsova reveals she still gets nervous because "it matters", while Maria Kirilenko hopes her experience of being in the final of the 2010 Kremlin Cup, which is played at the same venue, should help.

For the Czechs, Petra Kvitova thinks she has what it takes to cope with the pressure that is coming with being world No. 2 and Lucie Safarova is excited to end the year by playing for her country.
