Russia's women tennis players secured a place in the semifinals
Russia's women tennis players secured a place in the semifinals of the Federation Cup after cruising to a 3-0 lead over China in Moscow on Sunday.

Anna Chakvetadze put Russia into the semifinals after defeating Yan Zi of China 6-1, 6-2 in the first reverse singles on hard court at the Olympic indoor stadium in Moscow on Sunday.

In the opening singles on Saturday, Svetlana Kuznetsova beat Yan Zi 6-2, 6-4 in the first match and Elena Dementieva defeated Zhang Shuai 6-3, 6-0.

Russia has won the Fed Cup trophy four out of the last five tournaments (2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008). A win this year would bring the country level with Spain and the Czech Republic on five victories, behind only Australia's seven titles and the 17 of the United States.
