Re: WWW Fed Cup WG: Belgium vs USA

Belgium 4-1..USA might get the doubles. Mind you Wickmayer isnt in the best of form and wasnt she ill or something?

Re: WWW Fed Cup WG: Belgium vs USA

3-0 for Belgium after first three matches...
Who cares who will play and who will win after that

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

in Australia they thought she had a cold or the flue, but back home it was discoverd she had pneumonia for about 4 weeks. She's taking medication now but still can't practice as she wants...

that being said, Belgium should win this one easily
and I'm going
a shame Venus & Serena and Justine won't play, but I can't wait to see our new AO champ

Re: WWW Fed Cup WG: Belgium vs USA

Imagine if this was Serena&Venus vs. Justine&Kim. That'd be too good to be true

Shame about Wickmayer's illness

Re: WWW Fed Cup WG: Belgium vs USA

Will Justine attend it to support them? unlikely but I would bother to see Fed Cup if she will
If Yanina doesn't play, I think Belgium will lose 2-3.

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

Re: WWW Fed Cup WG: Belgium vs USA

It will be really tough but the U.S could just squeak it out 3-2. Depends on how well Yanina is.

Re: WWW Fed Cup WG: Belgium vs USA

Depends on Yanina.
Kim will most likely win both her matches (I say most likely because if Kim is tired and off her game, Beth could trouble her again like in Montreal.) So USA would need to win the other 3, which if Yanina is not going to play or is going to be bad, is looking to be some good chance.

Re: WWW Fed Cup WG: Belgium vs USA

The result depends on if Wickmayer plays. If she does, Belgium 4-1. If she doesn't, USA 3-2.

Fingers crossed!

Isnt this obvious? how can that so called doctors (there where 3) not see a pneumonia?
Yanina had to play aginast an Australian oponent in first round and they just want to givethe public the joy of a home player winning agianst Wickmayer that was weak with her pneumonia
If you cant diagnose a pneumonia you cant call yourself a doctor!
they called it just a cold!
it was dangerous allowing her to play!
