Re: Fed Cup

Raluca is currently 6-7 3-4 in her match against Sadikovic.

She needs to turn it on right now....

Re: Fed Cup

Raluca has successfully completed the 2nd set winning it 7-5

Keep fighting Raluca

This match sure hasn't been the easy breeze I was expecting it to be but if Raluca can get the win that is all that matters.

Re: Fed Cup

Raluca leads 4-2 in the 3rd, hopefully closing in on a very hard fought and very important win.

Re: Fed Cup

Raluca has dropped the last three games and now trails 4-5 in the final set.

She also trailed 4-5 in the 2nd set and then won the last three games of that set....we badly need a repeat performance right now.

Re: Fed Cup

Romania have unfortunately dropped the 1st rubber against Switzerland. I'm afraid this probably means Romania is going have to wait another year before having another chance at promotion. It's not over yet but it now looks very tough.

Re: Fed Cup

I suppose there is a possibility Patty Schynder won't be that fit and then Alex might have a good shot to level and maybe they might even take the doubles but the doubles especially is hard to picture as Schynder is world class in doubles whereas Alex is very inexperienced and Raluca while she is improving in doubles is hardly a force.

Re: Fed Cup

Looks like the tide has completely turned: Alex is 4-0 in the third. Keep it up, Alex!

Re: Fed Cup

Extraordinary win.

Patty actually served for the match at 6-3 *5-4!!! Amazing comeback for Alex. Had they lost this match I think the chances of Romania qualifying were close to zero but now providing they can keep it going in the doubles there is every chance.

Alex shows once again how much talent and heart she has.

The doubles won't be easy though. But let's hope for the best.

Re: Fed Cup

Do they get a break before the doubles match? I wonder if the Romanian captain will change the team...
