Re: FedCup.

Should've let Bojana try.

Re: FedCup.

I think it would have been a really big call to pull out JJ and put Bojana in. Would have been very tough for Bojana too. JJ's been the best fed cup player for Serbia, she always lifts, but today she just didn't have the energy to do it even though her movement was still damn fast. If she had been well I'm sure she would have been moving like lightning with the combination of adrenaline and motivation.

Lucie's fh was on fire and JJ played into it far too much at the end. Needed to find a way to avoid it- I know it isn't easy when you hit the bh because it makes sense to hit cc, but you have to try to construct the point so that you hit cc into their bh, or you have to hit the bh up the line more often and accept having to run more to cover the court. At least when she went cc she needed to give the ball more height and spin, because Lucie was eating up the flat cc bh and ripping it up the line.

Yes, JJ is the first choice... usually. But, if she was ill and/or hurt, Bojana had bigger chances.

Re: FedCup.

Hopefully, this will motivate her to work hard in the off season and fulfill her promise of bulking up.

Re: FedCup.

Re: FedCup.

Congrats, girls!

To be honest, after yesterday i didn't expect Ana to win, but i'm so proud of her now. Seems that Živojinović gave her good advice. He motivated her today and he was repeating all the time: "That's it, keep doing the same. Do not change your game. To je to."

I've just read JJ's interview...she is very disappointed : "I'm playing for Serbia for 12 years. It's time for me to retire from the national team and give a chance to younger players. I will always be there to help but i don't think i'll play against Slovakia next year. There are other girls in our team who can offer and give more than me..."

I'm ridiculing all those who made Ana's weight topic no.1 on TF.

What younger players?! If she retires from FC, that means she's ready to retire from tennis.

Re: FedCup.

I don't know, fANAtic. Now seems Ana wont play Fed Cup either. She said in Moscow ,couple of weeks ago, she 'll play against Slovakia. She was happy to play in Serbia, but today she said she's not sure. It depends on her schedule, how she's going to feel after AO'13..."It's not easy to travel that much"...

There was some drama at the press conference today. B92 says our girls "umpleasantly surprised them" when they said they're not satisfied with our journalists and Serbian media in general...Krunić was super pissed, she started discussion:

" Some journalists just can't ask the right question at the right time...You don't understand how hard it is for us, because you were never a pro athletes and you were never under such big pressure...I'm a pro, but i can't understand JJ totally, because i never played on her level. Whatever you ask, whatever you write - we are stronger than that. We always do everything for our country, we fought hard against Czech team, but, unfortunately, we felt that we are fighting against our own country...i don't know how will people in Serbia understand my statement, but i have nothing to hide - i love my country...It's hard for me to talk about this, i'm only 19..."

Ana joined her: "I think we deserved bigger support from you...we gave our all but it doesn't seems that way when we're reading your reports...We are doing our best, and yet ,we always have to explain to journalists and to repeat how much we are trying to win every match for Serbia..It seems to me that you don't understand that. That bothers us, and my impression is that we do not have sufficient support from Serbian media."

End of the presser was held in a discussion between girls and journalists. Girls were not happy and satisfied with reports and articles and reporters were surprised to hear those words from our players...Vranes had to apologize to the reporters, he said their " sharp tone" was caused by sadness and frustration after defeat...

Re: FedCup.

This journalist deserves to be slapped: http://www.alo.rs/sport/tenis/srpska...a-postave/3505. Insulting a 19 yo girl?! I hope that Ana will start treating Serbian media the way they deserve.

Re: FedCup.

No one should be surprised with our press, or anyone's press while we're at it. For at least a decade and a half, most of our press is in foreign hands, big media conglomerates. Their goal is to control the public opinion and to destroy every thought that our country and people are worth something. Everything they write is negative, doom and gloom, when you read newspapers you want to top yourself. Journalists are mercenary gutter rats, I'm surprised our girls didn't know it by now.

Not this forum, but she's apparently very angry at journalists, I'm glad to hear it.

Re: FedCup.

Well...some journalists are still mad at TSS , Zivojinovic and Jeremic because they were not invited to celebrate Davis Cup victory in '10 with our boys...TSS didn't invited them for a drink, not even for a 15 minutes long coctail party and they think they deserved that...My God...i've read this on twitter...Some of them are very sarcastic by saying that TSS and National TV didn't even bother to sent a RTS commentator to Prague, so Mijaljevic had to cover all matches from our studio in Belgrade...Reporters aren't satisfied with Jeremic, Zivojinovic and TSS attitude, "it's humiliating for Serbian TV and journalism in general"...

" There were 25 journalists from Serbia in Prague this week and they spent most of the time in the hotel. They could report about Fed Cup from the Belgrade if that was the case..." "Why Jeremic wasn't in Prague?" ...and sadly, seems that "discussion" between serbian reporters and people from TSS at the press conference was very loud,according to Cronin.
