Umm I'm sorry I'm late but I think you misunderstood my post. I was actually criticizing the Israeli player Deniz Khazaniuk for criticizing Shahar Peer and Julia Glushko...

Re: The Fed Cup Practice Pics, Reports, Interviews and Drama - 2012 Final in 25 Days!

Czech Republic is guaranteed to win the doubles.
Safarova can beat both Jankovic and Ivanovic.
Kvitova is expected to go 2-0.

I don't see how Serbia can win this.

This is what JelAna wants you to think


but yes you're right, it's going to take an extraordinary effort/performance. I believe in them though, you need to keep a certain element of delusion to be an Ana fan for so damn long.

Proud supporter of the VIP Serbian Scrub & the Barking Czech GOAT

JJ is going to go into GOAT form to protect Mother Serbia. She will be unbeaten throughout the tie and win it singlehandedly

I think they have a chance. They will have a huge support from their fans. Serbian crowds can be LOUD.

Oh come on, Kvitova isn't in the best form for a while and Safarova is in a dreadful form, I doubt it will be THAT easy for Czech Republic.
Let's go team Serbia, win your first FC

I expect a very tight battle, but it'll probably be pretty much on Petra and Lucie's racquets. If they both play well it'll be tough for Serbia. But neither is in blinding form, and if they don't bring their a-game they are likely to face a pretty stern test IMO.

Will anyone be there from this forum?
Just look out for me and my friend wearing personalised t-shirts spelling 'ADJE' 'JJ' and on the back 'BARK' 'Petra' (in case things go south )

Peak JJ will randomly show up to represent her country.
Seriously though, Jankovic seems to be inspired when playing for Serbia.
Safarova isn't a clear favorite for the win against either Ana or JJ and we don't know what exactly Petra's form will be like.
But yeah, it would be delusional to say than Czech Republic isn't the favorite.

I like both teams and I hope it's a tight battle.
