Clijsters not playing doubles....

Kim CLIJSTERS (BEL) v Jelena KOSTANIC (CRO)
Kirsten FLIPKENS (BEL) v Karolina SPREM (CRO)
Kim CLIJSTERS (BEL) v Karolina SPREM (CRO)
Kirsten FLIPKENS (BEL) v Jelena KOSTANIC (CRO)
Els CALLENS/Elke CLIJSTERS (BEL) v Jelena KOSTANIC/Iva MAJOLI (CRO)

I though she would...

Belgium put forth Callens and Elke for doubles. Jelena and Iva are, I believe, undefeated in FED Cup doubles. Good chance for Croatia to win it!

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Croatia can definitely take this match if they step up to the plate. Kim & the Belgian Contingent are mostly ailing.

So Good Luck To All!

I'm sure Kim will win her 2 singles. She loves the pace Sprem will play.

I hope Kirsten will win the fourth singles. If not, the doubles will be decisive.

So I go for 3-2 Belgium

Don't forget that Kostanic (although on hardcourt) lost to nobody in IW this year. She may have reached thed SF at Charleston but prior to SF she played 3 players who were ranked below her and only Mandula was ranked higher! Sprem is tired and in my opinion shouldn't be playing. I think she was 'forced' to play after she said in a live telephone conversation she will miss the tie!

Udachi Belgium

The Elke/Els combination is slightly underrated, both are good doubles players and I would pick them over Kostanic/Majoli.

Exactly if it is live expect Kim on court if the wrist is okay that is, she practically said so in the interview on the fed cup site where she said she could have 3 matches Also Kim has never been named in doubles but has played twice with Els and won both times including first round last year

If it's a live rubber, Kim would most definitely play. The real question is, who would she play with? Els Callens is the more experienced player, but Kim would probably be more comfortable playing with her sister. Hmmmmm.....
