Re: Fed Cup 2008 [CZE vs. SVK]

I hope that Nikki and the rest of the Czech girls do well and have some fun in the rematch against Slovak ladies. Plus i really hope that we`ll get to see the Czech girls dress up for the party. It would be very nice to see Nikki and company all glammed up.

Re: Fed Cup 2008 [CZE vs. SVK]

I hadn't even realised Kodat no longer was the captain.

It's Cibulkova and Rybarikova then. Neither of them a walkover.

That was a struggle.

Well done, Nicole!

Big match vs. Domi tomorrow.

Good luck!

Re: Fed Cup 2008 [CZE vs. SVK]

Vaidisova extends impressive record

Rybarikova, moving well, fought back, saving six match points, while the Czech star threw her racket in anger. But in the tenth game of the set Vaidisova faltered no more and clinched the second rubber after 97 minutes with 75 64 victory.

Mojmir Mihal, the Slovak captain, said: “The main difference was that Nicole is much more experienced in big matches.”

Vaidisova has now an impressive 10-1 Fed Cup record and has not lost a rubber since 2005 when she was defeated by Akiko Morigami. Today she was playing for the first time without her stepfather Ales Kodat as a coach. She said: "My father is in Canada now, he is skiing.”

With the Fed Cup tie finely balanced going into Sunday’s play, there are rumours that Benesova will play instead instead Cetkovska. "I don´t know if I will have another chance tomorrow," Cetkovska said.

Lucie Safarova, who had withdrawn from the tie on Friday morning with a gluteal injury, and her boyfriend Tomas Berdych, the world No.11, were among the 3,800 sold-out crowd at the Brno Exhibition Centre.

Tougher match than expected for Nikki, but i`m glad that she kept her poise and played well enough to get the win, which was very crucial for the Czech ladies.
