Re: Fed Cup 2009

Nice victory girls!
USA is next, at home. Way more tricky than Argentina.
If Venus plays, they're in trouble but they can beat Mattek/Crayabs/Oudin.

Re: Fed Cup 2009

from what my silicon friend extracts from this local newspaper:
http://brnensky.denik.cz/ostatni_reg...a-asi-v-b.html
the venue for the CZE-USA match-up will be indoor in the Rondo ice hockey arena, Brno, the same city as for the CZE-ESP encounter. The surface is refered to as "hard", but its called out as "Supreme" and identifeid as Carpet/Indoor on the fedcup web site...

Re: Fed Cup 2009

It will be on Hard (Acrylic).
From that interview (MJF), it looks like the Sisters will not make the trip to Brno.

The US captain says they're the underdogs and speaks about the young players.

Re: Fed Cup 2009

Mattek-Sands will lose both of her matches but Oudin really impressed me this week in Charleston.

Lucka will be able to win both of her matches so we just have to hope that Iveta does not crumble under the pressure. Only one win is needed from her.

Singles: W - Kuala Lumpur F - Dothan SF - Biel || Doubles (w/ Randy): F - Kuala Lumpur SF - Stuttgart QF - Miami
FITD
W - Monterrey

Re: Fed Cup 2009

I read somewhere that they might replace Iveta with Barbora but Iveta practiced all week in Prague so she should play.

Safarova will probably play 2 matches and Iveta/Petra will switch.
If might be closer than expected, with Oudin showing some form and Czech #1 and #2 far from their 100%.

Re: Fed Cup 2009

Petra Kvitova had an accident during one of the practice sessions and sprained her ankle. Is doubtful for Fed Cup.

Re: Fed Cup 2009

First the elbow injury and now this.

She wouldn't have played singles anyway, unless Iveta decides to mess up.
