“We had the preliminary agreement. But first of all we should beat the German national team,” said the Russian head coach Vladimir Kamelzon.

According to him, Maria Sharapova previously agreed with the Russian Tennis Federation to participate in the Fed Cup final in November.

The semi-final match Russia vs Germany will be held on April 18-19 in Sochi. Sharapova will not take part in this match due to the need to compete in the WTA tournament in Stuttgart.

Maria should play in Fed Cup to qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. She played for the team this season. It was the quarterfinals against the Polish national team.
