Germany vs Australia Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

Definately the highest quality tie in the playoffs, Germany come in as the favourites as the Australian team that looked good at teh beginning of the year have started to faulter, with Jarmila Gajdosova not playing like a top 100 player and Jelena Dokic no longer in the top 100. This tie could range from a German white wash to a 3-2 Australia if Sammy can win the singles and her and dellacqua can close out the dubs

Jarmila is getting her form back. Taking a set of Clijsters and beating Wickmayer

She still stands no chance against the german top 15 stars or barthel

Re: Germany vs Australia Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

Interesting to see if Germany will nominate Barthel...

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Germany vs Australia Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

Now when I think about it, Aussies are dead meat

German team will come of as?? Kerber, Lisicki, Goerges & Barthel?
Aussie team most likely: Stosur, Gajdosova, Dokic, Rodionova.

So I wonder who the German's will put on singles
Aussies might even put on Rodionova on singles

Re: Germany vs Australia Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

German Team will most likely come with Lisicki, Goerges, Kerber and Groenefeld
because Groenefeld is such a experienced doubles-player
and Rittner seems to be like BFF with her

for me Australia is favorit, Stosur will win 2 singles and 1 doubles

Re: Germany vs Australia Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

Mona in the team would be a miracle, Rittner love to stick with the same team
and so i guess we will see the same team as we had against the czech republic

Petko is unlikely to be nominated since she hasn´t played a match since January
i guess she will be there to support the team, but not as a official team member

Re: Germany vs Australia Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

Nastya has better chance to win a singles match than Jarmila and Jelena together.

If David wants Jarmila to play, I'll tell TA to fire him!


Inspiration is for amateurs


Faves: Mona Barthel / Samantha Stosur / Roberta Vinci

Re: Germany vs Australia Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

In my opinion, whoever wins the doubles will win. Stosur to win both singles and They might as well play Ash Barty as they are almost guaranteed to lose the other singles. Focus on Sam and the doubles.

Re: Germany vs Australia Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

voted for australia though chances seem to be balanced; if surface wasn't clay and Petko wasn't disavailable I'd voted for germany
Sabine winning on clay high leveled matches I can't imagine these days...

Re: Germany vs Australia Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

I'm surprised thatno one has mentioned Dellacqua yet

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Re: Germany vs Australia Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

^ I just thought of that.

Most likely to put her on instead of an injured Dokic.

If 2-2 they might put Stosur/Dellacqua.
