National team changed a lot of captians but after all affair in France had negative influence to our team. We lost our tie and so we failed from world group. All this made me really sad but not because of failure but because our team in 2010 were really great, we were like we all are one but now I just don’t feel this chemistry between us anymore. Still I was always happy to play for that team but from now on I can’t do this anymore. I’m mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted.«

Maybe one of reasons for this decision is also that Slovenia have new FED CUP captian – former tennis player Tina Pisnik (previous one was Maja Matevžič).

Sorry for bad translation. It was long day for me.
