Fed Cup: World Group and World Group II team nominations

I know we are all still in the heat of the AO semis and final... but the team nominations for Fed Cup just came out today, and I figure it can be interesting to comment.

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

What I write is my opinion, and my opinion only.

Re: Fed Cup: World Group and World Group II team nominations

German team

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Re: Fed Cup: World Group and World Group II team nominations

I love the Slovak Republic team! USA could be upset here. If Dulko and Jozami can do well enough in singles, Huber's inclusion could be for nothing.
