Led by Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina, Russia eased to victory against an inexperienced Argentinian team in Sochi. Vesnina got things underway in positive fashion, with a comfortable win against Paula Ormaechea, before Makarova downed Maria Irigoyen to leave the Russians in a strong position at the end of the first day. Makarova then trounced Ormaechea in the third rubber to secure the win for her nation and keep the team among the Fed Cup elite.
Russia have been crowned champions four times - in 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008. Prior to their first title, they had lost in the Final on four occasions, and they have since lost another two Finals, in 2011 and 2013. From 1968 to 1991, Russian players represented USSR and then CIS in 1992.
