Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Perhaps, however, Anne is very experienced with a very good Fed Cup record, some good clay court results in the past, doesnt really need to be told how to adjust on clay, i think she has weapons to beat a player like Paula. Joko lacked the firepower really needed to hit Paula off the court. Nevertheless, even though I would have preferred Anne I still feel Joko deserves to play the next tie and probably should win.

Well, that's Fed Cup and the captain has to make and live with her decision.

Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Mike Dickson just tweeted that it is probably Baltacha that will play the 2nd rubber

Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Why?! Bally has played one pro match since last August!

This rubber is so important because IMO Ormaechea is the favourite against Laura!

Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Break point for Paula... Saved!

ADV LAURA! Double fault, of course.

Adv Paula, Laura's complaining to the umpire about the crowd whistling between first and second serves. Lucky net cord gets Paula the break.

3-4*
