Fed Cup team against Spain

Ivo Van Aken chose Els Callens, Kirsten Flipkens, Elke Clijsters and Caroline Maes.


Location: Club Nazaret at Jerez de la Frontera
Surface: Gravel

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I go for 0-5 Especially because the temperatures can easily go up over 40 degrees!

I'm still waiting for the first time Van Hyfte will get selected...

5-0 without a doubt... we might win the doubles if spain doesn't use it's strongest doubleteam.

With Kim & Justine out, we're bound to lose 0-5

Els is barely winning a match this year, Kirsten hasn't quite been on a tear either. Well about Caro and Elke...
Ah well at least we'll see Caroline on tv again


Oh I agree about Evelyne. She's the only one with 2 new high ranks this week, both in singles & doubles, the only one who's actually making progress!
But hey, she's not a VTV product is she?

yeah, they should start giving Evelyne WC's so she could get experience playing high-ranked opponents

Evelyne is in the team!!!!!!!!

Haar afscheid bezorgt Fed Cup-kapitein Ivo Van Aken nog meer kopzorgen. Die moest voor het duel op 10 en 11 juli in en tegen Spanje al Justine Henin-Hardenne (WTA-1) en Kim Clijsters (WTA-2) missen. Elke Clijsters wordt vervangen door reserve Evelyne Van Hyfte (WTA-368). Els Callens (WTA-92), Kirsten Flipkens (WTA-316) en Caroline Maes (WTA-347) zijn de andere namen. "Evelyne verdient die plaats in het team. Ze is uit het goede hout gesneden, kan hard werken en hard op een bal slaan. Van nature is ze groot en sterk. Ze is nog jong. Voor haar is het een mooie uitdaging. Ik hoop dat ze via deze weg haar opmars kan verderzetten." Vorig jaar in juli won Van Hyfte in het Nederlandse Heerhogowaard haar eerste en tot nu toe enige ITF-toernooi.

C'mon Belgians
