Re: Fed Cup

Will be tough fight for the 4th spot: Niculescu, Begu and halep should be secured. Cîrstea and Dulgheru will be #4, hard decision for the coach...

Re: Fed Cup

I think Cirstea deserves more then Dulgheru to be part of the team especially if the tournament is held on hard. She's better ranked, had a better season and is healthier...

Re: Fed Cup

Yeah, at the moment Sorana is the better between them 2. Unless Alexandra will star rocket her way back at the beginning of the year, I can't see her getting nominated for the tournament, unless the doubles competition will have an influence...

However, it's only #4 we are talking about, so that certain player won't have many matches to play. Some countries in their group will probably have not any athlet being ranked higher than the "weakest" player in Romania's team...

It's even dramatic that they are not already a part of the world group taking into account which trainwreck of ATP team has participated at the Davis Cup world group that year.

Re: Fed Cup

Alexandra will destroy all at AO and will become the captain of Romanian Fed Cup Team

Re: Fed Cup

Gabi is trying hard to jinx her!

I would be glad if she starts winning more than 4 games in her R2 encounters like it never was the case again since French Open!

I really like her for her smart play and for her fight spirit. She reminds me very much of ASV, a David tennis girl who defeated many Goliaths in her times

Re: Fed Cup

The key is in the game against Poland. A win in the doubles plus one against Urszula can see them through. It's going to be tough.
