LE: I`m happy and confident with the draw, considering Halep will meet JJ again and (definitely) win, and Sorana will play har girlfriend Ana. Don`t know anything about their double team, but I`m very confident in ours

Could even be Brasov. They hosted 2013 Davis Cup match with the Netherlands and both the venue and the people were great. Better than in Bucharest.

Re: Fed Cup

Belle de Jour, I know that, but I was talking about some bigger venues, and from what I know, Bucharest and Craiova have the biggest ones. OK, Bucharest is the first choice but considering the WTA Bucharest in July, it would be nice for some other city to host this event

JJ will not play, she retire from Fed Cup. Only Ana or Bojana, this 2 are the Mvp from Serbia. Is very good that we can play in home ground. In the end not a very good draw for us probably the hardest if Ana Ivanovic will decide to play if not we will pass by Serbia without problems.

Brasov please .

It can't be played on the BNR Arenas in Bucharest, neither in Cluj so I hope Brasov will be chosen (as Relu Muntean in from here and also Cosac chose it for last year).

The surface can be also chosen : Clay (as in DC '05) or Hard (as in DC '13)

Quote:
Speaking of the Serbian national team, Jelena said that after being twelve years there, she concluded that it was time to retire and step aside in favor of a younger generation of talented players. “My body is no longer able to withstand all those efforts during a season because I had many injuries. I always played wholeheartedly for the national team, I believe I contributed greatly and I always defended the colors of my country with pride. We have a quality team; they can be the best without me"

NO she is not. Is good that she doesn't play. We have a good shot, even if Ana will play she can only win 2 matches and in double we have better team that they have. I'm confident that we will pass by Serbia if Halep, Sori and Monica will play. The most balanced score can be 3-2 for us with the final victory of the double team. Go Romania !!!

Re: Fed Cup

Romania vs. Serbia

Nothing for faint-hearted.

I expect drama till the end, paired with some epic chokes and miracolous come-backs. It's actually sad that one of these teams will have to play (again) in the Europe/Africa Group. They should actually both fight for the trophy.

OMG I knew they were gonna get Serbia

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.

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

I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
