Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

1st round

BiH vs. GBR

Dea Herdželaš - Laura Robson

Anita Husarić - Heather Watson (?)

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

'Puffins can fly.....I think.'


I haven't heard of either of those players that Laura and Heather are playing- this should be pretty easy

Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Any indication of who'll be handling the doubles?

Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Heather is writing a column for BBC sport during fed cup: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/tennis/21341505

And Bally has an LTA blog for the tournie as well: http://www.lta.org.uk/fans-major-eve...rael-part-one/

Also a lot of pics on Heather's photo stream here: http://www.zimbio.com/photos/Heather...ws/d-vGirSyBIO

And some of Laura as well: http://www.zimbio.com/photos/Laura+R...ws/sNn93drGvVI

Never seen Laura practice in a headband before xD Is this a new look? Very Azarenka...

Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Livescore link here: http://67.231.107.53/widgets/fedcup....5-D221E7443285

Been rain showers in Israel so play a bit delayed. On the OOP its Anne v Kajtazovic first, then Hev v Husaric. Assume Laura is being rested today. Will be interesting to see who plays doubles.

TRIPLE EDIT: No play before 12pm GMT now due to rain. Only rains 5 days per year on average there, typical...

Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Laura tweeted someone a few days ago saying she has an infected toenail so that's probably why she's being rested.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Day session matches cancelled for today, night matches will play as normal. So GB will play Bosnia tomorrow and the play off (if we get there) will be Sunday. Not ideal, especially as Laura is due to play Doha which starts Monday.

Heather too! Both girls are playing Doha.

I agree though. Not very ideal. At least they'll be able to get some match practice before they're back playing competitively.

Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Mistake from me!

Heather isn't playing Doha. I misread her name.

Hev isn't playing Doha according to the entry list thread here, she's one that is specially stated not playing. She's ok as Hev has next week off with her next tourny Memphis which starts on the 17th.

EDIT: you beat me to it with the correction!

Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Because of rain, nobody's playing today. Funny, because I thought Wimbledon hadn't started yet.

Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Slightly tougher matches than we may have expected but GB go into the doubles 2-0 up.

Anne def Herdzelas 6-4 6-2

Hev def Husaric 6-3 6-4

Re: Fed Cup 2013 (GO TEAM GB!)

Joko and Laura join forces as a doubles team for the first time and dish out a nice double bagel

Laura/Joko def Simic/Kajtazovic 6-0 6-0

GB def B&H 3-0

Onwards to Portugal who lost to Hungary today (doubles still to play but 0-2 after singles) sounds like an .... emotional match between MLdB and Babos
