The Swiss are definitely more tough than expected. Good thing Yanina managed to win in the end, if we would have been 2-0 down by now...
Please do better tomorrow girls!!

Wow, didn't expect this either... But it's also on clay, not the best surface for us... But good that Yanina could win, and hope that Kirsten will play better tomorrow

There are no camera's. And Yanina is losing too to Oprandi. It seems like Oprandi will be the one to kill us

Van Uytvanck will play now. I hope she can handle the pressure

So weird that they don't let Kirsten play the other singles match?
They think Van Uytvanck has a better chance? Or maybe they want Kirsten to play doubles with Yanina ?

Re: week 6: Fed Cup, Grenoble-$25k

Why has Flipkens been replaced with Van Uytvanck?

Sure Kirsten lost her first match but have to give credit to Oprandi there who just beat Wuckmayer by an easier score than she beat Fliokens. This march is to keep the tie alive, that's a lot of pressure!

Good Luck: Belgian & Czech Girls

Re: week 6: Fed Cup, Grenoble-$25k

I guess Ann Devries wants to keep Flipkens fresh for doubles. A big gamble, but we'll see...

So she thinks that Van Uytvanck will beat Voegele, interesting...

Re: week 6: Fed Cup, Grenoble-$25k

I hate the fact that not a single channel is showing tennis anymore now that Kim & Justine have retired. This tie wasn't even mentioned on the 1 o'clock news on één today. Heck they even mentioned rugby and boxing but nothing about Fed Cup

They needed to get it to a live doubles for doubles to mean anything . ..

This is a bad loss and I think Devries should be asked questions. Wouldn't be surprised to see a change.

Re: week 6: Fed Cup, Grenoble-$25k

Flipkens was injured There was no other option for her then choosing Alison.
There were no camera's so they couldn't show it.

Disappointed weekend anyway
