Fed Cup 2006

While this site was down, the Fed Cup selection for CZE-THA has been made:

http://sport.idnes.cz/tenis.asp?r=tenis&c=A060331_142559_tenis_elv

Here is how I read it:

Nicole will lead the field: she recovered fine from her minor shoulder injury and should be in good shape after her scheduled play at Amelia Island and Charleston.



Capt’n: Tomas Petera (same as last year… )

1. Nicole Vaidisova (#1 Saturday)

2. Iveta Benesova (# 2 Saturday)

3. Klara Koukalova (#2 Sunday)

4. Barbora Strycova (Sunday Dblz)


With no. 2 and 4 forming the tentative doubles team. There’ll be only the four of them because Lucie Safarova is currently training strictly on clay to defend her ’05 Estoril title the following week (and Thailand will be played on hard), and Kveta Peschke is still getting up to speed thru training after her two injuries earlier this year.

There’s also something in the bottom paragraphs (with typo’s?) about Petera trying out a new scheduling by arriving to Thailand only two days prior to the matches as opposed to the common (and logical) five days, to get acclimated and train on the actual match court. He came up with this schedule, “so the girls don’t have to suffer the 36 deg C heat and high humidity”. “You can’t do much training under such difficult climatic conditions” and “besides, the girls are used to arrive two days prior to their matches” . And of course, Petera is convinced they’ll win in Thailand . Their opponents: Tamarine Tanasugarn (152), Suchanan Viratprasert (190), Napaporn Tongsalee (254) a Montinee Tangphong (279).

Really happy about it
They will win for sure

Who bet the Doubles will be Vaidisova/Koukalova?

Well they shouldn't lose to Thailand.

Hope Barbora gets a chance to at least play the doubles.

Nice looking team, the kinda team i was hoping for (pity Lucie isn't on the team)

Good luck to them, and Wig's i kinda agree, with Petera as coach you might never know what he chooses....

Anyway they should win indeed, Good Luck!

Looks like Iveta Benesova will have the honors of starting the Fed Cup match-ups CZE agst THA in Bangkok on Saturday:
http://sport.idnes.cz/zapas-v-thajsk...41831_tenis_ma
She'll face Suchanun in the First match. It's not clear why Czech no.1 Nicole is not in that pole position but I guess Nicole is still the only one sure to be playing two singles matches that weekend. Regardless the line-up, it appears the Czech girls are enjoying themselves in the Thai resort .

It's like Davis Cup - it depends on the draw. it must be Thailand #1 vs Czech #2 first.

Yes, mostly Fedcup.com provides livescoring when the matches get underway, just check www.fedcup.com when the matches are being played, flashing boxes with Livescore on them show the livescores just click on them and you'll find them

Here are some pics of the presentation between Thailand and the Czechs in Bangkok:
