Itll be
Kvitova d Sam
Jarka d Lucie
Kvitova d Jarka
Sam d Lucie

Then Hlav and Hrad for CZE. But would you think Molik would put Ash and Casey in this situation? Or go for more experienced Jarka or Sam

Re: Fed Cup 2013

I think it would be a good idea to go with Ash/Casey given their recent run of form. It would also mean that all team members would make a contribution to the tie.

Sam's doubles results haven't really been great since her run to the Wimbledon final in 2011; I think she needs some time to get used to playing with her partner. Jarka did have her amazing run to the mixed title (), but I'm not sure who'd she partner. Ash/Casey seems like the best choice imo

Re: Fed Cup 2013

I think the main thing is that they get this sorted in advance and stick by their decision. I think they'll probably go with Casey and Ash, and if they do they shouldn't get cold feet and switch to Jarka and/or Sam at the last minute if the doubles are the decider. As SilverPersian said on recent doubles form Ash and Casey probably deserve the nod anyway.

I agree. Plus the two most credentialled doubles players i.e. Casey & Sam did not gel together the couple of tourmies they played last year (inc. the Olympics) whereas Casey & Ash hit it off almost instantly. Think Alicia just needs to take a risk with this one.

Im hoping it won't get to the doubles. Kvitova looks to be playing with a great deal of pressure (expectation) on her shoulders and maybe the home crowd might pressure might make it difficult for her, so a win by Sam and/or Jarka isn't out of the question. Though she might get inspired by it all as like Australia, the Czechz have got a proud history in Fed Cup.

Exciting tie coming up nonetheless. We win this tie, then its our first semi appearance since 1993 when Nicole Bradtke managed to beat Steffi Graf

There's more to life than just being happy.

Re: Fed Cup 2013

Kvitova and Safarova performing badly this week in indoor!

Maybe a chance for Aussies. Depends what form Sam brings

Re: Fed Cup 2013

It's funny, but out of all of the singles players for this tie, it's only Jarka whose had a positive start to the year (at least relatively speaking). She's going to go 2-0 in singles; I feel it in my nether regions

You guys definitely have a good chance to knock out the reigning champs in the 1R.

Re: Fed Cup 2013

This is definitely shaping up to be a major shitfest

Still, big chance for our girls to pull off the upset. Go girls!

Re: Fed Cup 2013

It looks like its going to be on foxsports, not sure about free to air.

Should be an interesting tie.

it sucks because they always televise Davis Cup for Aussies

Will be interesting if Molik will put Casey on singles or Jarka.
