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.
