Moscow: Japan are dreaming of upsetting four-time champions Russia in this weekend's Fed Cup quarter-final tie in Moscow, veteran Kimiko Date-Krumm said Wednesday.

Former World No.4 Date-Krumm, 42, is the oldest woman on the WTA tour and was part of the Japanese team that beat Steffi Graf's Germany in 1996 to put Japan on the map in world tennis.

"I'll try my best. Of course it's Russia, it's very tough, but we have to dream," Date-Krumm said.
