Re: Fed Cup

The opinion of team chef irina Spîrlea after that desaster:

Quote:
"I'm sad. Frankly, I expected. The girls showed good form when playing individually in tournaments, which differs much from their performances playing in a team. The pressure is different from such a competition in teams. Perhaps, their desire to qualify was too much anc caused further damage. We were not able to play! Not that they can't do better, but maybe because they want too much "
Yes, Alex showed some great form recently!

And apart from that, the Fed Cup is of course a tournament where players from one nation are forming a team, but they still have to play in single matches, so...

Prosport, Romanian sport magazine, wrote that Alex "only" lost 4:6 3:6
Who is wright now?

Re: Fed Cup

But day one report on Fed Cup site has 61 63 too

I think it´s correct. Not that it matters much.

Re: Fed Cup

They prefer Dinu over Sori.... interesting

Maybe Spîrlea wanted to give Cristina the chance for playing her first match on WTA level, but I guess that Alex had to play most parts of the match alone,...

Crappy tournament!

Re: Fed Cup

This stinks

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Fed Cup

Well that 1st day results really were awful. Like I think all the supporters here of the Romanian players I expected a lot more than that. Frankly, they could hardly have done worse if they tried.

And yet...day two was much better, and day three better still. It rather suggests to me that the team did not prepare as well as they needed too. Arriving in Israel a couple of days earlier could have made all the difference. Then again both Holland and Romania arrived in Israel on Sunday. Still, credit to Holland they absolutely started the event ready to play at the top of their game and Romania sure as hell didn't.

It's bummer, but what's done can't be undone, and at the end of the day at least hopefully Alex and Monica will learn from this and next year they will be ready to be at their best from the start of day 1, and not day 3 as happened this year.

Niculescu def. Jani 6:0 6:2
Dulgheru def. Babos 6:1 6:1

Arn/Babos def. Dulgheru/Dinu 7:5 6:0

Next match against Israel with live stream, but only available for people in Israel.
But they are updating the scores in the Fed Cup thread regularly!

Re: Fed Cup

The girls started training for Fedcup Server Dron, the new FedCup captain nominated 9 players for this year: Niculescu, Begu, Halep, Cirstea, Dulgheru, Cadantu, Gojnea, E. Bogdan & Olaru - if no injuries occur the first 4 should make the team

Re: Fed Cup

Did you miss Dulgheru by purpose in your list or by accident?
