Brasil's chances improve thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat much cuz Karolina wont play
And what happened with Silvija that she wasnt named to play this tie? Well, Jelena will be a very tough player, specially on clay, but she's not unbeatable, I do think Brasil can make it harder than last year, specially cuz now we can play with Nanda and Bruna in singles, the best choices, IMO, and in doubles we can play with Nanda and Carla.
OMG, I'm so excited with this tie, I just hope TV will broadcast it live here, cuz I really wanna follow the live scores and know how good (or how bad
) the brazilian girls are, and facing a Top 50 player will be a great experience to all of them.
Bruna defeated K-Lina last year, so, I'm sure she can also beat Jelena and the other girls, and Nanda also has good chances, she's been playing very well in the last 2 weeks and it's important to rise her confidence for this tie.
