The Tennis Club Cagliari will be at full capacity for the 2013 Fed Cup by BNP Paribas Final between Italy and Russia on 2-3 November.

Tickets for the 5,000 capacity ground in the south of Sardinia have all sold out in anticipation of seeing a fourth Fed Cup title for the home team.

The Italians go into this year's Final as clear favourites, having named a full-strength team against an inexperienced Russian quartet.

Corrado Barazzutti will look to his in-form singles trio of Sara Errani, Roberta Vinci and Flavia Pennetta to get the job done and even if Italy are pushed to a deciding fifth rubber they can rely on the world's best doubles duo in Errani and Vinci.

Russia, meanwhile, faces an uphill battle to win its fifth Fed Cup title after naming a team that includes three players who will be making their debuts in the competition.
