Guys I have seen young Iveta and she is very talented and promising...a very tricky lefty. Congrats to her. Not so much a bad loss as much as it was a bad score :( :(

Im not too concerned at this loss tho...Iva was just caught off guard by a youngster she obviously knew nothing about. These things happen. Im confident she'll be right for her next match...and if she isnt then let the backlash begin...jrm :rolleyes:

I watched the game also I have to tell you jrm that you are ***** because you said that win in Charleston was a fluke. This Iva and Iva in Charleston (I watched the final) are not the same. Many people say the same for RG but Iva won another tourney. What does she have to do to make you respect her???

Johny
Apr 28th, 2002, 03:56 AM
I watched the match and will give you shor summary.

Iva was playing like we expected Benesova to play and Benesova played like we all hoped Iva would. In the last game Iva wasn't even trying to catch the balls. She just walked around. I sue hope she would be better today!

:hearts: :hearts: Go Croatia:hearts: :hearts:

PS. And I hope Jelena will kick some butt in her match!

jrm
Apr 28th, 2002, 09:46 AM
a player who has to wait five years to win another tournament after winning RG and being as high as number 4 in the world ..well
she did have a lot of injury problems but she also had a very coulorful sociaty life. i think it's great if you can unplugg yourself and think about something else than tennis but don't go blaming injuries for your bad results. i have read that during a Us Open against martina hingis (3 round do not remember the year but she lost 7:6, 6:0) she was preoccupied with the thought of having a dinner with leonardo di caprio. and statistic never lied so don't you be calling me anything. i have my favourites and i can be quite critical about their game. but then again i know it is easy to say what to do and expect i am right. no hard feelings, please.
but you must agree that croatian commentator is so subjective about their players.

Here is an article from Bol turney site (sorry because itis on croatian):


Dvoboj prvog kola svjetske skupine Fed Cupa između Hrvatske i Češke otišao je do kraja, do petog meča u kojem se u igri parova odlučivalo o pobjedniku.
U prvom meču današnjeg dana Iva Majoli odigrala je vrlo loše i nesigurno i nimalo nije nalikovala na samu sebe iz Charlestona prošlog tjedna. Ogroman broj neprisiljenih pogrešaka, uz kvalitetnu igru protivnice Kukalove rezultirali su još jednim brzim porazom i to identičnim rezultatom kao jučer 6-4 6-1.
Jelena Kostanić morala je dobiti i svoj drugi pojedinačni susret da održi Hrvatsku na životu u ovom susretu. I još jednom je pokazala zrelu i koncentriranu igru i pobjedom u dva seta odvela Hrvatsku u peti meč.
U odlučujućoj igri parove igrale su Iva Majoli i Jelena Kostanić protiv Birnerove i Benesove. Iva je za razliku od dva pojedinačna susreta ušla vrlo odlučno svjesna da više nema pravo na pogrešku, a Jelena je i treći put u dva dana odigrala sjajno i upravo njoj pripada najveća zasluga za pobjedu protiv Čehinja. Mlade Češke igračice nisu se bile u stanju suprotstaviti raspoloženoj hrvatskoj kombinaciji i sve je bilo gotovo za 54 minute. Našim igračicama predstoji borba za polufinale protiv pobjednika meča izmešu SAD-a i Austrije.

GO CROATIA!!

hmm I need to find a new line... :p

Anyway, here, I'll translate it.


The first round match, in Federatino's Cup world group, between Coatia and Czech Republic went to the end, to the fift match in which doubles decided on the winner.
In the first match of the day, Iva Majoli played very badly and unsecurely, not at all lookig like herself from Charleston, last week. Enormous number od UE together with a quality performance of her oponent Kukalove resulted in another quick defeat with identical result to yesterday's: 64 61.
Jelena Kostanic had to win her second singles match to keep Croatia alive in the tie. And, once again, she showed mature i concentrated game, and with winnig in straight sets took Croatia into the fifth match.
In the deciding doubles match Iva Majoli and Jelena Kostanic played against Birnerova and Besanova. Iva, in contrast to her two earlier matches, entered the match forcefully, knowing she had no more mistakes to make, while Jelena for the third time in two days played briliantly. She was the one most responsible for the win against Czechs.Young Czech players couldn't hold their own against a great playing Croatian team, and everything was over in 54 minutes. Our team [Croatia] are left with a second round tie with the winner of USA-Austria tie.

There. A bit hurried, but it'll have to do. :)
