Acting President Vladimir Putin sent a message of greetings to participants in the first Federation Cup tennis tournament

April 26, 2000

An extract from the message:

“I am convinced that we will be treated to a real tennis feast because four select ladies’ teams will play in this prestigious tournament in Moscow for the first time, vying for getting into the final.

“I am pleased to say that young Russian female tennis players are listed more and more often among the world’s top players. Our girls are quickly turning into professionals, as is proved by their victories in top-level tournaments.”
