Re: Fed Cup 2008

I dont think that lucie is necessarily is bad form she played quite well in the hopman cup and open round of sydney but obviously her injury will be a concern. If she is fit and healthy I think she will win at least one singles

Lucie Safarova


Fed Cup: Go Czechs!!!

Re: Fed Cup 2008

Lucie said nothing should prevent her from playing.

"V případě absence Hantuchové jsme jednoznačnými favority, máme osmdesátiprocentní naději na vítězství," řekl Pála, který už ve čtvrtek propustí domů náhradnici Ivetu Benešovou, jež plnila v prvních třech dnech v českém týmu roli tréninkové partnerky.

That site should have an English version.

Re: Fed Cup 2008

Re: Fed Cup 2008

I wish Kvitova was on the team, but she has to go play Paris qualies, which I value much more than Fed Cup.

Good luck to the Czechs, mainly Lucie. Don't get blown blow yourself off the court.

The best team for Peking would be Vladka Uhlirova and Kveta!
Just take a look at the rankings
Furthermore their styles would combine perfectly!!!
Vladka is a classic serve-and-volley-player with amazing reactionj at the net and Kveta has a lot of pow from the baseline

Why?
Pála said that if Hantuchova wasn't playing the Czechs would be clear favourites to win and that he would send Benesova home on Thursday (today), she was only a sparring partner.
I guess Iveta might play Paris afterall.

No news, but nobody in Slovakia expects her to play anymore.

edit: Daniela isn't playing. It's official. Slovak singles players are Cibulkova and Rybarikova.

Re: Fed Cup 2008

Safarova withdrew so Benesova stays with the team and is nominated to play doubles pairing Peschke. I, however, hope that Nicole would play doubles with Kveta if the score was 2-2. Nothing against Iveta but I don't believe her much.

Re: Fed Cup 2008

I expect Nicole to win both and Petra to lose...both. If she wins one, it's over.
