Re: Fed Cup

Any idea who will play this year?
Probably Sorana, Alexandra, Raluca, and Monica, but maybe they should give someone like Simona a chance

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

I like the team
If it was up to me, I would've chosen Cirstea, Olaru, and Niculescu for sure! Then I would've decided between Dulgheru and Halep for the last spot. Gallovits wants to play for Hungary so I doubt she'd play, Halep is top 200 and she will be on the team in the future so it would be good for her to get experience and she is in good form, and Dulgheru has no Fed Cup experience and is not a great hard court player
I think Sori will play singles #1 and I think Ralu and Alex will both play singles #2 and doubles will be Monica and Raluca every time

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari

Re: Fed Cup

Gallovits refused to play for Romania in 2008 when the team needed her, I doubt she will be called again. If she didn't want to play for Romania which has a better team and after all she's romanian I doubt she'll play for Hungary.
At the moment Dulgheru is better than Halep even on hard court so the choise is the best one..

Re: Fed Cup

Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Re: Fed Cup

But she said it herself that she would like to play for Hungary's Fed Cup team but she wasn't 100% sure and that was last year so I guess she decided not to

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Re: Fed Cup

Maybe she said that after Beijing, when she was not allowed to play for Romania because she refused to play FedCup. But since Ruxandra became president of the federation she said that Gallovits will always be an option for FedCup, so she's not a closed chapter

Re: Fed Cup

Oh, okay
But I think she said it around Budapest 2009. When did Ruxandra become president?

Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.

Re: Fed Cup

If it's indoors, Cirstea and Niculescu should play both singles and doubles.

No Sorana and no Monica? Yipes. That's a real shame. It really is time Romania got into the World Group II but I can't see it happening with this team at all.

Even so, I wish the whole team the best of luck.
