Re: Montreal selected to host Fed Cup Americas Zone Group I stage

Aleks and Steph were just way ahead of everyone this week. Very impressive stuff from both today. On the other hand, it seems like both Paraguayan girls just stepped on court with the wrong attitude, happy of being in the finals, but not quite there mentally. Veronica was nervous at the start, and very negative, with weird choices of shots. Rossana just wasn't like she was in other matchs, though her level of intensity was quite low all week.

Overall, a very nice week, it was great fun to have tennis here during the winter, and i have tons of pictures from the canadians in the trophy ceremony!

Saralah, too bad we couldn't find some time to chat Did you see me at least? lol

Yes, I know, but she didn't look mad at all after she lost (okay I guess it was hard to be mad at her teammates and coach =P). It doesn't matter anyway, she did sign it after all, that was enough for me .

And I can't say I'm surprised that The Bahamas and Puerto Rico lost. Both teams weren't that good, imo... I mean, most of their players were juniors, or weren't in the top 1000.

Lol, don't worry about it

I'm not surprised either. Puig impressed me though for Puerto Rico, so young and that girl can definitely play.
