Re: Fed Cup 2011

the Netherlands def Latvia 3-0

Kiki (WTA: 213) def Lina Lileikite (WTA: 1.074) 6-2 6-1
Misa (WTA: 150) def Liga Dekmeijere (WTA: 613) 6-2 6-2
Kiki & Richel def Liga Dekmeijere & Irina Kuzmina 6-1 6-3



Report on ITF.com:
Netherlands had little trouble in completing a whitewash of weak opponents. Latvia was the latest victim as the Dutch finished the pool without the loss of a set in any of their singles rubbers.

Friday's encounter was probably their easiest as Kiki Bertens crushed Lina Lileikite 6-2 6-1, Michaela Krajicek, playing as the No. 1, had little trouble against Liga Dekmeijere 6-2 6-2 and the doubles was wrapped up comfortably by Bertens and Richel Hogenkamp.

"They love to play Fed Cup, they love to play in a team, they all get along very well and they are playing extremely well," captain Manon Bolegraf said. She lamented the team's late starts and long matches, calling them "late-night specials" in the cold desert nights.

pfft, indeed nothing on telegraaf..

they souldn't let Aranxta play doubles... she is not good at it..

I think Krajicek and Kiki would of had the best chance to win the doubles.
