Re: Fed Cup 2014

when you feel bad about today's tie, think about this thread, how excited would that be, and it's just the very beginning

Re: 2014 Fed Cup

Your thoughts? Yes, it's still very early, but given our player's recent form I'd go with Vekic, Tomljanovic, Konjuh and Jurak, with possibly considering Vrljic and Savic as alternatives cause they both are comfortable on an indoor court. That seems logical. With Konjuh increasingly experienced and Tomljanovic in the form of her life (pretty much), I'd say we have a shot against almost any of these teams, which we proved last year when only Poland was good enough to take us out (although Belarus had a ridiculously weak team without Azarenka and Govortsova).

It'll be interesting to follow developments regarding all this.

Re: 2014 Fed Cup

Vekic, Tomljanovic, Martic and Konjuh for me.
No point in giving the cahce to Jurak, she sucks in doubles after quiting with Marosi.

Re: 2014 Fed Cup

Speaking of the teams I wouldn't want us to face, I'd say BEL, BUL, GBR, NED and POR seem like the toughest opponents. Of course, everything will depend on the team nominations.

I think this has to be the team, irrespective of form. We should be winning all of the second singles matches and Tomljanovic/Martic have done well together in the past in doubles. Lets just hope for no injuries.

For all three (potentially 4 or 5) ties? Wow, you're a slave driver

Btw, anyone still thinks Mirjana will play (like, seriously!)? Well maybe, if Prpic insists on it and performs a lobotomy on Majoli in order to get her an invitation...
