Russia enters its Fed Cup by BNP Paribas World Group first round tie against France in Moscow as red-hot favourites, having named an all-star line-up of past Grand Slam champions Maria Sharapova and Svetlana Kuznetsova, former world No. 1 Dinara Safina, and current world No. 14 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

Captain Shamil Tarpischev will have a headache deciding who to select on day one, a nice problem to have some might say, but Pavlyuchenkova is just happy to be included in the team and believes that the Russians can mount another title challenge this year. Chris Bowers asks the questions.
