From what I understand, they,ll decide Tuesday night if Petra is in the team or not.
Cetkosvka, Klara or Barbora might take her place.

And Luce beat Iveta 6-4 in a practice set. She always kick her butt.

Re: Fed Cup 2009

Draw for Saturday

Kvitova - Mattek
Benesova - Glatch


I think Lucie should be playing instead of Petra given Petra's recent form and the injury, but let's see.

Re: Fed Cup 2009

I think an out-of-form Kvitova is still a better indoor player than Benesova, so it should really be Kvitova and Safarova IMO. I don't expect Glatch to beat Benesova, but Mattek-Sands should do it indoors.

2017 Results:
Tennis Tipping
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

Safarova should've played.
I'm sure she will gets the chance on Sunday, instead of Iveta (if 1-1 or 0-2) or Petra (2-0).

Hopefully Petra will win her match, making Iveta more comfortable and Glatch more stressed.

Re: Fed Cup 2009

Iveta decided to play like Brie Whitehead.

I really don't understand why they keep picking her.
She admitted herself tons of time that she can't cope with the pressure.

Re: Fed Cup 2009

Iveta said she would not play Fed Cup again, that it's time for young players to be given a chance. Hopefully she will reconsider.

Poor girl It's sad, she tries and she's such a good player but everything goes wrong in Fed Cup. Cheer up, Iveta
Will she play doubles tomorrow?

Pala will surely calm her down tonight.
They need her for the Doubles.

Umm no. She will never play Fed Cup again after this.
It's impossible.

It quite possibly ruined her entire season.

Shade, It was a good opportunity, one that may not come anytime soon.

Re: Fed Cup 2009

I blame Vaidisova.

Gutted for them, I can't imagine how Peschke and Benesova are feeling at the moment.

but would we have wanted nicole on the team anyway, in the form she's been in?
i mean sure, she's come around a bit, but has yet to prove herself again against tough competition.

i look so fine, i look so sexy even with my face smashed up on the plexi
