Yeah, from what I can see it looks a bit inadequate.

Re: Fed Cup

Just came back home. Simona is amazin to watch live, she was just getting started when rain arrived. As for Sorana, after 3-6 0-2 she played the match of her life in her home country. She was amazing! Well done, girls!

I can only agree with you ! People are saying Ana played badly but most of those errors were forced errors in my amateur opinion. Aş for Simona, the way this match started it could only go in one direction: 6-2 6-1 for România. To bad this rain ruined everything, but i do hope the match will resume later this evning

Re: Fed Cup

I have witnessed Sorana losing to players from outside top 100 who weren't playing particularly great, I have seen her laying an egg very often after losing a tight first set (76 or 75), so even if Ana wasn't today the same player that won RG back in 2008, this victory is only Sorana's merit. She was better and mentally stronger today. But I know haters gonna hate and bitches gonna bitch. They always do

Re: Fed Cup

You know it's the same story, it's always on Sori's racket... today once she settled her nerves and got her game up and running there was no stopping her and i don't care who was on the other side and what form she was in!! Great play from Sori she really killed her opponent with those returns and in general she was very positive and even running after balls that seemed lost...

Re: Fed Cup

She is a professional tennis player and rain is part of her job. I've seen players who played 4 matches (2 singles & 2 doubles) in the same day because of the weather conditions. I think Simona can handle this decision. Besides, Bojana will also be tired for her match against Sorana so that could work in our advantage

We should care more about Simona because if she won her 2 matches it will be finished .. we need Simona ends her first match fast so that not be exhausted vs rested Ana .. and also Bojana will have some time to rest not like Simona

She'll play her match tomorrow at 10am. Assuming the match ends by 11:30am, she's won't play her second singles match until about 2 1/2, 3 hours later. It's a guess, but I'm pretty sure it won't be back to back.

it's definitely back to back! the time she gets for rest will depend on the duration of the first match (if it's over/under 90min afaik)

Re: Fed Cup

It would have been better to be played today. Shit . It would be tough to win 2 matches, one after another.

They must do that , as soon as there are lighting in the court and they can have more than enough time to hold 3 matches if they have to ...

it would be kind of madness and unfair if Simona doesn't have enough rest ( 2 hours at least )
