Re: Greek Fed Cup Team

Now the aftermath

So many questions to be answered about why none of our 3 singles players were in Eilat since no one in our team had ever played Fed Cup singles before...
Why Stefanou instead of Sakkari...
Why Eleni bailed on us...
Why we only had 3 players...
Why we got a new Fed Cup captain after nominations were made and who is he since he's not a former player and no one knows him...
Why Kanellopoulou didn't play even though she was probably there for Maria JK
Why we lost to Bosnia in the first place...
Who will be in the team next year...
What Eleni will say in her next blog or twitter status,if she will even discuss it...
How will this affect Agni, Despina, and Maria for the rest of the year? Must ruin their confidence...It must be discouraging for these young players to come so close and then all their hard work is gone . The three of them must be very upset. They were writing to each other on Facebook. Poor Sakkari. She even made her status saying that she wanted to go back in time and replay the match point

Twitter was buzzing with this match
Many people were just posting score updates but there were some people tweeting from there. Here are some of the highlights:

@stu_fraser Greece team just got on my plane... think they were worried about making the flight?! Playing on their minds in the final set?

@stu_fraser That explains why they were still wearing their kit.

Action ain't over yet. Watching nervy relegation deciding set between Greece & Luxembourg. Lux had match point at 5-1 but now 5-4*. #FedCup

This is unbelievable. Lux had 2 match points and incredibly put an easy smash long on the 1st. Now 5-5. This is what it's all about #FedCup

Tiebreak between Greece & Luxembourg to retain Group One status at 10:20pm. Great to watch. #FedCup

What could have been one of biggest chokes in tennis is averted. After match points for both in tiebreak, Luxembourg take it 10-8. #FedCup

Landed. The Greek girls are also here, and their coach has an @EqueliteFerrero hoodie.

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
