Question Fed Cup Nominations Out (3 Top 10 PetraSamSerena)- Which Ties You Look Forward Watch?

The ITF has announced the official team nominations for the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas World Group semifinals, World Group play-offs and World Group II play-offs, to be played on 21-22 April.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


World Group semifinals

Russia v Serbia
Venue: Sports Palace "Megasport"
Location: Moscow, Russia
Surface: Indoor clay

Russia are without the services of Maria Sharapova and Vera Zvonareva, but such is the strength in depth of Russian women's tennis at the moment that captain Shamil Tarpischev can still call upon three players ranked inside the Top 30, including the dependable Svetlana Kuznetsova.

Serbia, on the other hand, are at full strength for the trip to Moscow as they compete in the World Group semifinals for the first time. Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, both former world No. 1s, spearhead the challenge for the visitors.

Serbia

Czech Republic v Italy
Venue: CEZ Arena
Location: Ostrava, Czech Republic
Surface: Indoor hard

Czech Republic continue their title defence with Petra Kvitova, the world No. 3 and reigning Wimbledon champion, leading the way. The left-hander has been in impeccable form for the Czechs of late after winning her last eight successive singles rubbers, although her last defeat came against Italy's Flavia Pennetta at this stage of the competition in 2010.

Pennetta was the Italian No. 1 when she recorded that straight-set victory over Kvitova, but she now finds herself as the team's third highest ranked player since both Francesca Schiavone and Roberta Vinci are now ranked inside the Top 20.

Czech Republic
Petra Kvitova
Lucie Safarova

Re: Any Fed Cup Teams Announced So Far ??? (Empress JaJa Confirms)

Bitch please


Even Ana Jovanovic would be better nowadays than Jankovic

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Any Fed Cup Teams Announced So Far ??? (Empress JaJa Confirms)

Sam Stosur and the Brainless one will be lining up for Australia with Casey Dellacqua there as player 3... not sure about our fourth though.


Samantha Stosur: US Open Champion 2011

Cornet // Diyas // Jankovic // Dellacqua // Pironkova // Halep // Hingis
Dulgheru // Gajdosova// Kanepi // Cetkovska // Svitolina // Niculescu // Errani

I'm really curious how many seconds You thinking in average on this forum before You write something? Jankovic 2012 season so far is really pathetic - but what to say about all Russians if we know that Sharapova will not play! Kirilenko is only other Russian player ahead Jankovic in 2012 RACE, but Kirilenko on Clay is not same player like Kirilenko on HC, and she have 1-5 h2h vs JJ. Despite home crowd and sure point in doubles - Russia without Sharapova right now is not real favorite vs Serbia!

2012-RACE TOP100 (RUS and SRB):

2 Sharapova, Maria
10 Ivanovic, Ana
16 Kirilenko, Maria
20 Jankovic, Jelena
23 Makarova, Ekaterina
30 Kuznetsova, Svetlana
43 Zvonareva, Vera
46 Bratchikova, Nina
49 Panova, Alexandra
54 Petrova, Nadia
84 Savinykh, Valeria
89 Pavlyuchenkova, Anastasia
100 Jovanovski, Bojana

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)

Re: Any Fed Cup Teams Announced So Far ??? (Stosur & Jarmila To Lead AUS)

The Aussies will be hoping that the Germans are so spoiled for choice that they are incapable of making a rational selection, eventually opting for Barrois, Gronert, Beck, and Woerle

Re: Any Fed Cup Teams Announced So Far ??? (Stosur & Jarmila To Lead AUS)

Would Germany play Petkovic straight away in singles if she is fit?
It would seem like an unnecessary risk given the other players they have.

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Eugenie Bouchard, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze

They have enough quality that there is no need to play someone who's been out all year.

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Eugenie Bouchard, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze
