Re: Greek Fed Cup Team

Eleni bailed on us just like last year, so we only had 3 girls.

MNE d. GRE 2-1
Papamichail d. Veselinovic 6-1 6-2
Despina lost to her earlier this year, so that is good
Kovinic d. Sakkari 6-2 6-3
Kovinic is ranked ~400 spots above Maria
Kovinic/Krstajic d. Papamichail/Vogasari 6-0 7-6(13)
I wonder how many SPs were wasted in the second set

LTU d. GRE 2-1
Papamichail d. Mikulskyte 6-1 6-1
Stanciute d. Sakkari 5-7 6-2 6-1
This one was expected because Stanciute is a great and experienced player, but Maria should've fought back to try and take the third set
Mikulskyte/Stanciute d. Papamichail/Vogasari 4-6 6-0 6-2
Absolutely horrifying. They had it

RSA d. GRE 2-1
Papamichail d. Grandin 6-3 7-6(13)
Good win, and it's encouraging to see she pulled it out in the second after probably wasting dozens of SPs
Simmonds d. Sakkari 6-3 6-0
She didn't even try in the second set probably
Grandin/le Roux d. Papamichail/Vogasari 6-4 6-4
Tough loss, but they lost every tie with the same lineup, you would think they would try changing up the lineup right? Yeah, not Greece

Relegation Play-Off:
FIN d. GRE 2-1
Papamichail d. Tuomi 6-0 6-3
Should've played Vogasari instead so Papamichail could play against Suomalainen and have a shot...
Suomalainen d. Sakkari 6-0 6-2
Leivo/Suomalainen d. Papamichail/Vogasari 6-4 2-6 7-5
I can't anymore

Very disappointing. These ties were winnable. When Eleni pulled out, they should've called up Grammatikopoulou. It also sucks that Gerasimou and Georgatou stopped playing, because they could've been very useful. We should be in Group I but now we will go down to Group III, how embarrassing! Most of the teams in Group II barely have any ranked players, and we have 8-9! Against Lithuania we were up a set in two matches that we lost . Sakkari still winless in Fed Cup, Vogasari too.

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
