Fed Cup 2006

After a long and heavy but very interesting dispute with Avram Bakalina, I would like to ask you all - what do you think about the Bulgarian team for the Fed Cup tournament in Plovdiv in April.

Please name the 4 players who should be in the team in your opinion (in both cases - Sesil eligible and ineligible to play). It is not easy - Tzveti OK, but what about the others?


Some additional information:
Venue: Plovdiv, TC Lokomotiv
Dates: 17/04/2006 - 22/04/2006
Surface: Clay
Teams: Belarus, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Great Britain, Hungary, Israel, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Romania, Serbia & Montenegro, Slovenia, Slovak Republic, South Africa, Sweden, Ukraine

really not easy..........

if Sesil plays

1. Sesil Karatancheva
2. Tzvetana Pironkova
3. Maria Penkova
4. Dimana Krastevitch or Dia Evtimova


if Sesil is not allowed I'd choose

1. Tzvetana Pironkova
2. Maria Penkova or Dimana Krastevitch or Dia Evtimova to play the second match
3. Maria Geznenge only for doubles
4. Svetlana Krivencheva only for doubles


btw, why not Maggie to play doubles??

4 - Dia Evtimova or someone else from the youngsters

Живеещата в САЩ Димана Кръстевич почти съгурно ще попадне в състава за "Фед Къп" и ще играе през април в Пловдив.
So that means our team will be

Pironkova
Krastevitch
Penkova
Nedeltcheva

Krastevitch/Penkova will be absolutely OK for doubles, but even if they let Tzveti play it wouldn't be a mistake

btw, first tournament Mimi Penkova will play this year will be $10k Roma Parioli in the week of March 20.

but very good choice, I think


Десислава Топалова бе избрана за капитан на българския отбор за Fed Cup - 22.03.2006 г.


Десислава Топалова бе избрана от Управителния съвет на БФТ за капитан на българския отбор за Fed Cup, световното отборно първенство за жени. 27-годишната пловдивчанка трябва да обяви до следващия понеделник състава, с който България ще играе в турнира на група 1 на зона Европа/Африка в Пловдив от 17 до 22 април.

Десислава Топалова е родена на 8 юни 1978 г. в Пловдив. Започва да играе тенис на 7-годишна възраст под ръководството на баща си Панайот Топалов. Шампионка на България във всички възрастови групи (до 10, 12, 14, 16 и 18 г.), многократна шампионка при жените на открито и в зала поединично и на двойки, както и на смесени двойки. Медалистка от европейски отборни първенства до 16 и 18 г., европейска шампионка на двойки до 18 г.. Има общо 4 титли и 2 финала на турнири с награден фонд 25 000 долара, както и 4 титли и 3 финала на турнири с награден фонд 10 000 долара; на двойки има общо 6 титли (1 от 75 000 долара, 2 от 25 000 долара и 3 от 10 000 долара). Участвала е на всички турнири от Големия шлем. В световната ранглиста на WTA е достигала до №152 на сингъл и до №184 на двойки. През април 2005 г. прекрати професионалната си кариера, но продължава да участва в състезания в Германия и в Бундеслигата, където играе от 4 години. В отбора на България за Fed Cup играе от 1997 г. Участвала е в общо 23 отборни срещи, като има общо 18 победи и 16 загуби (14-7 на сингъл).

That's a really good decision I think. Dessi has a great knowledge.

I'd like to see Gancheva... The rest of the team seems to be a good choice, too.

Did Maggie stop because of pregnancy or was there any kind of dispute? I suppose version 1.

FLAVIA PENNETTA

US OPEN CHAMPION 2015

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

Сега превключвам на български за да може да ме разберете,защото...пусти английски

Та за Димана - въпреки че ми е една от най-симпатичните тенисистки тази година има 4/4 победи/загуби като два пъти пада в 1-ви кръг на Q на 25,000 турнири,един път минава Q и пада в R16 от Romana Tadjekasuma и един път почва директно в MD където в 1-ви кръг бие някаква с WC която даже няма ранкинг и пада в следващия кръг!Но някак си това ни е най-добрата 2-ра ракета и ми се ще да вярвам,че може да запише някоя и друга победа

Мария Пенкова - Тая година изигра само един турнир и то миналата седмица и падна още в първи кръг и то на 10,000 ако не се лъжа

Десислава Топалова - тя пък не е играла от 1 година Верно че така както не е играла ще бие всички наши junior-ки ама пък 1 година си е една година и все си мисля че трябва да се даде път на младите


Та на мен ми се щеше поне една junior-ка да имаше в състава пък макар и 4-та ракета да е ...Да изиграе 1-2 мача когато всичко вече е решено,да натрупа опит,пък може и да бие ...

Сега сте вие на ход с коментарите
