Turks Nab Coach




MOSCOW -- Konstantin Bogorodetsky, who led Russia's women to their first Fed Cup final last weekend, has signed a three-year contract with the Turkish tennis federation.


"I will oversee all of the national teams in Turkey," Bogorodetsky said. "I hope I will be allowed to continue my duties with the Russian team as well."


The captain said that despite Russia's recent success, he was still grossly underpaid by the national federation. "I don't even have a signed contract, it's basically a handshake agreement that runs from year to year," he said.


Russia is due to play the Fed Cup final against the United States in September.
