Re: Fed Cup 2009

Nicole is a mess right now. She wouldn't do anything good for the team.
Of course, when she's playing well, it's important to have her on the team because she always deliver but right now, she can be with Radek.

I think the team is going to be Petra, Iveta, Lucie and Kveta.

Re: Fed Cup 2009

I'd nominate:
-Peschke
-Benesova
-Kvitova
-Safarova? Zakopalova? Cetkovska?

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Fed Cup 2009

Nicole wants to focus on ranking again and also doesn't want to lose in FED CUP because she knows she is not playing well, that's smart decision I think she wouldn't be nominated anyway though her win/loss ratio is amazing in FED CUP, especially in singles

I would nominate Benesova, Kvitova, Safarova and Peschke

Re: Fed Cup 2009

Spain is :

Carla
Nuria
Maria Jose
Lourdes.

Ok. Anabel isn't there so it give them a break.

The Czech team is Petra, Iveta, Lucie and Kveta.
I think if Iveta doesn't crack under the pressure before the tie, she will play Saturday. If she loses, Lucie will play Sunday. Something like that.

Re: Fed Cup 2009

I think the Czechs got a strong team. If they could cause some damage in singles and they win the tie, I can image they could also get into the final.

They'd better win 3 single matchs as soon as possible...

Re: Fed Cup 2009

I was hoping Iveta would play first, would mean less pressure.

Benesova played twice in Czech Republic, 1-1 in Singles and won the decisive Doubles against Japan in 2005.
It will be the first time Petra plays in front of her home crowd in a Fed Cup match.

Hopefully they will bring their A+ game.
