Re: Fed Cup 2013

...and here are Croatia's final positions in the E/A Zone Group I, beginning in 2009 (after it was relegated from World Group II):

2009: Tied for 5th (out of 15 countries)

2010: Tied for 11th (out of 16 countries)

2011: Tied for 7th (out of 15 countries)

2012: Tied for 9th (out of 15 countries)

2013: ??? (so far, at worst tied for 7th, out of 16 countries)

Re: Fed Cup 2013

Great news to see Croatia winning so easily vs Georgia!
All our players seem to have lots of fun there, hopefully they can beat Belarus too.

Is OOP available for tomorow?

We're playing the afternoon session, so just like the previous two days. Groups B and D currently in action.

EDIT: I was just browsing WG2 to see who is playing there this weekend, and among teams like Belgium, France and Germany, I see...Argentina? I mean no disrespect but seriously, if they made it through, so can we. In fact, most teams among those 8 look a lot like ours in terms of player rankings.

Re: Fed Cup 2013

Austrians won the doubles yesterday by a walkover, which means we are totally tied with Belarus at the moment.

1. Belarus 2 (5:1)
1. Croatia 2 (5:1)
3. Austria 0 (2:4)
4. Georgia 0 (0:6)

Re: Fed Cup 2013

I wonder who will play today, Ana or Tereza?
Shame there is no OOP available to find it out.

Re: Fed Cup 2013

As much as I love her I wouldn't risk it with Tereza - eventhough she might be perfectly capable to get us a win. It's too important of a tie.

I believe OOP will be available once all morning session matches are over.

Do you think Tereza would think it's unfair to let Ana play over her when she has a better ranking and Ana is "only" a junior?

Well, I don't know Tereza personally, but if she is a reasonable person she'd go along with whatever the Captain decides. Of course we haven't seen the matches and I could be totally wrong about this, but looking from afar, that's how things look to me. But I'm pretty sure Majoli knows what she's doing and that she'll make the right decision. Now if only these guys would let our girls play on CC today...

Re: Fed Cup 2013

It is Ana to play against Sasnovich and Donna against Kremen. Sasnovich is favorite against Ana I think as she is 369th player in the world and won both of her matches here. Tereza's rank is better than her, but still Iva has chosen Ana. I believe she has a reason for that. Maybe because Sasnovich beat Mayr and Tereza loss to her. Then Donna plays against Kremen (who needed 3 sets to beat Shapatava) and is about 150 places below Donna in rank so I believe Donna can beat her. Well, I think Ana has chances in first match, but still I'm afraid that in the end doubles will decide.

Ana Konjuh | Donna Vekic | Mirjana Lucic-Baroni | Ana Ivanovic | Nicole Vaidisova

Re: Fed Cup 2013

Ana had several break/set pts at 6-5 but it is tie-break now! I hope Ana will stay focused and take this first set!
