Anastasia Myskina will lead holders Russia in the Fed Cup final against France in Paris later this month.

Russia captain Shamil Tarpishchev has also named Elena Dementieva, Dinara Safina and Vera Douchevina in an unchanged team from the semi-finals.

Svetlana Kuznetsova, the 2004 US Open champion, and this year's French Open semi-finalist Nadia Petrova miss out.

The tie is a repeat of last year's final and takes place on the clay of Roland Garros from September 17-18.

Russia beat the United States 4-1 in the semi-finals in Moscow in July.

World number two Maria Sharapova turned down an invitation to play for Russia this year.
