Fed Cup team selected - Jelena won't play

According to b92.net, it will be Ana Ivanovic, Ana Timotic, Ana Veselinovic and Danica Krstajic. Jelena Jankovic will not play. I don't know about this... Jelena is in poor form now but she's always given her all in Fed Cup and that could have helped her to regain her confidence.
And yet again we don't have a good 2nd player... Timotic has been bad this year, Danica has has a very disappointing season so far and Veselinovic is very inexperienced.
I don't think we'll go through.

Expected and dissapointed at the same time. I know that Jeca is not in good shape, but playing for her own country and being with her friends will maybe help her. She could also play some matches against girls who are out of top200 and probably could make some win and that could help her... I can`t beleive she doesn`t play because she avoids Ana. This was great chance for our girls and for Jelena, but...

I have to find new avatar.

Ana Ivanovic

Jelena Jankovic

Vojislava Lukic

Good luck to: Davenport, Srebotnik, Kirilenko, Kostanic, Mirza and Serbian DC squad (Djokovic, Tipsarevic, Zimonjic, Bozoljac, Pashanski and Troicki)

So that means more pressure on Ana's shoulders

As for Jelena... yeah I really think playing some ITFs wouldn't be that bad idea. At the beggining of the year Marta played poorly too and she went to play 75k Ortisei and she got to the finals there. After that she scored some nice wins (vs Anabel and Finals in Memphis). Jelena needs some wins to get her confidence back

Ana Ivanović.

Find the Veselinovic decision a bit surprising... I know she's young, but there are higher ranked girls of around the same age. It's very disappointing Jeca won't play but I am not surprised because the whole thing seems to be a bit of a mess to be honest.

Oh well, all we can do is to support those who are there and cheer for them to do the best they may!

You are the one... you're my number one...

ALLEZ JUSTINE!

(another thing, why not Tea Mircic, who is roughly the same age, higher ranked in both singles and dubs and has better race standings, etc.)

If Jeca were in Bulgaria (she needn`t play) we`ll be 1st seeded and we would have easier oponents in our group, but we`ll have 7th ranking and if we will have one team with better ranking in our group.

Ana Ivanovic

Jelena Jankovic

Vojislava Lukic
