FED Cup: Vinci def Safarova 6-3, 6-7(2), 6-3 ITA 3 - 1 CZE

I think Safarova was the better play but Vinci was way more clutch. Poor Lucie she was crying so hard after she lost, everyone was trying to comfort her. Was impressed on how she handled Vinci's slice, showed Kvitova how. The 4-3 hold was the crucial one for Roby, some clutch serving. She has nothing to be sorry for, It is Petra who got beaten convincingly that has something to be sorry for.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

OMG what a match...Lucie played the best tennis I've ever seen her playing and yet lost...it must be so hurtful for her.

Roby choked the 2nd set, but in the end she came out with some terrfic shots and serves

Bring it on Russia now

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Great match and very entertaining.

After watching this I would still favour Lucie on a fast surface.

Congrats to Italy.

BTW, 10 of the last 11 FedCups have been won by Italy, Russia and Czechoslovakia A or B

The tradition continues, Italy-Russia may be fun.

Re: FED Cup: Vinci def Safarova 6-3, 6-7(2), 6-3 ITA 3 - 1 CZE

oh, sorry for opening another thread

vinci worked well, i disagree regarding safarova's handling with the slice - she was abit lazy with her footwork, especially with the shorter balls which she might have been able to attack with better preperation.

she also failed miserably to deal with the slices at the net many of the times, including the last few games.

vinci was SO into this, and so proud. delighted for her, but safarova really took it to heart. i hope she builds on a good clay season though.

in the end, i think koukalova would have been a better choice for the czech team - it's a bit of a pity they played two similar players, and not a good risk taken by thier captain.

vinci should be delighted - she deserves it, and she is well headed into top10 - i think it's quite safe now.
two italians in top10, RG winner and RUP - this is so exciting for italian tennis lovers, as they have suffered lengthy years with #11 ranked CH and alot of "almosts".

Her name is Zakopalová now.
She didn't play, because she was sick.

There is no shame Czech Republic losing to Italy on outdoor clay. Italy needs to win this now.

Czech Republic Might have been a bit closer had Kvitova beaten Vinci. Oh well. At least the girls have won twice in a row.
