Fed Cup World Group 2 : Thailand vs Croatia

Fed Cup tie moved to Phuket
Published on Feb 21, 2005
[TENNIS] Fans in the south

will have the opportunity of watching the historic Fed Cup World Group 2 tie between Thailand and Croatia as the event has been moved to Phuket from Bangkok in April.

Lawn Tennis Association of Thailand (LTAT) president Suwat Liptapanlop initiated the idea yesterday during the association’s annual meeting, suggesting the tournament be moved to Phuket to boost tourism after December’s tsunami. The tie, originally scheduled to be played at Muang Thong Thani in Bangkok, runs from April 23-24.

The tie will be the biggest nation-to-nation competition ever staged on Thai soil. Suwat, who is also the minister in charge of sports, said staging the event in Phuket would persuade international tourists to return to the south.

“There will be live coverage to many countries and foreigners will see the magnificent beach in Patong and might want to visit,’’ said Suwat.

The LTAT leader also said that tourists in Phuket would be encouraged to go to the competition as entry would be fee. He said a temporary court along with a 4,000 capacity stand would be set up.

Thailand, as hosts, surprisingly moved past Australia 3-2 in the World Group Play-offs last July to earn a slot in the elite group for the first time in many years.

The Thai squad will feature Tamarine Tanasugarn as key player and Suchanan Viratprasert, Napaporn Tongsalee and Monthinee Tangphong, ranked second to fourth in the country.

While Thailand will field an A squad, the visitors will arrive without ace player Kalorina Sprem, the No 17 in the world. Croat No 2 Jelena Kostanic, ranked 35th, will spearhead the team, which also includes Ivana Abramovic (No 231), Darija Jurak (No 333) and Anna Vrijic (No 353).

“Now we are among the top 16 teams in the world group. So our next goal is to win the tie and be in the top eight,’’ Suwat said.

Why you " MAD " about K-lina will be playing Fed Cup.

It's no meaning if she won't play against THAILAND. I'm looking forward to watch her play in PHUKET.

C'mon K-lina.

My god, I totally don't like this Croatian team.
A few days ago Prpic said Karolina and Sanda (+Jelena) WILL play.
Bleeeh, I was looking forward to seeing Sanda play.

Officially confirmed, no Sprem in Thailand

Sprem to miss Thai clash

TOR CHITTINAND

The kingdom's Fed Cup team received some good news yesterday after it was announced Karolina Sprem, ranked 19th in the world, would not be in the Croatian team which plays Thailand in Phuket next month.

Thailand qualified for the World Group of the Fed Cup after upsetting Australia last year. The match against Croatia will be held April 23-24.

Secretary general of the Lawn Tennis Association of Thailand (LTAT), Adm Bannawit Kengrieng said Sprem's absence gave Thailand a real chance of beating Croatia.

However, Croatia still have Jelena Kostanic, ranked 36 in the world, while Thailand's top player, Tamarine Tansaguarn, has slipped to 67th place.

The event will be held at a temporary outdoor court on Patong beach in Phuket as part of the government's policy to boost the province after the tsunami disaster.

Adm Bannawit said the Thai team would travel to Phuket two weeks before the event ''to get used to the weather. I don't want to be like the Davis Cup where we lost to Pakistan,'' he said.

Vittaya Sumrej, Thailand Fed Cup team captain, warned that Croatia would still be tough opposition despite the absence of Sprem. ''We must not underestimate them,'' he said.

CROATIA

Jelena Kostanic (36) Ivana Abramovic (225), Darija Jurak (332) and Ivana Lisjak (355).

THAILAND

Tamarine Tanasugarn (67), Suchanan Viratprasert (198), Napaporn Tongsalee (309) and Monthinee Tangpong (359).

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
