When is the team for the tie against Slovak Republis announced?

Good Luck girls, 2007 is the year for breaking into the World Group I:D

Wiggly
Mar 17th, 2007, 03:45 PM
I don't know, something like in April.

Sometimes we get a Czech article (Idnes) about the team because they need to cut down some girls.

Nicole and Lucie are in 100%. Others?:confused: Girls like Klara, Iveta, Kveta even Barbora are doubtful. Will Birnevora and Ondraskova be on the team?

My prediction is :

Nicole
Lucie

and

Eva/Iveta/Barbora.

Slovakia is goign to be tought if Daniela is playing. If Daniela loses any of her singles, it's over (Nicole and Lucie shold destroys Slovakia #2.).

Key match is Nicole vs Daniela.

~|Naomi|~
Mar 17th, 2007, 11:16 PM
I think the Czechs have the upper hand slightly because Lucie is much stronger than the Slovak number 2. But if Daniela wins both her singles then it will be tough for the Czechs as they don't have a great doubles record and Daniela is very experienced in doubles. But Nicole has a very good record against her & I definitely think Lucie has a shot against Daniela if she is on. I think it is going to be a very exciting tie - I just wish I could see it:p I think it will probably end 3-2 either way.

Eurosport France:

RTC : Kodat capitaine ?

Ales Kodat, beau-père et entraîneur de la 8e joueuse mondiale Nicole Vaidisova, est pressenti pour diriger l'équipe de République tchèque de Fed Cup, rapporte mardi le quotidien Sport citant une "source bien informée".

M. Kodat, 40 ans, remplacerait à ce poste Tomas Petera, qui a démissionné en février, en raison de ses activités au sein d'une société pour la candidature de Prague aux jeux Olympiques d'été 2016 ou 2020. M. Kodat entraîne Vaidisova, aujourd'hui âgée de 17 ans, depuis l'âge de 8 ans. Il a ensuite épousé sa mère, Riana.

Sa nomination au poste de capitaine de l'équipe tchèque devrait être officialisée au cours de ces prochains jours, selon Sport. L'équipe tchèque, qui comprend outre Nicole Vaidisova aussi la finaliste du récent Open de Paris, Lucie Safarova (N.26), rencontrera les 21 et 22 avril à Bratislava les Slovaques, pour le compte du premier tour du Groupe Mondial II.

This will be on clay, no?

That's arguably Hantuchova's worst surface, which should give the Czechs some advantage.

Tomas Petera is not the captain anymore. He works for an organisation who wants Prague hosting Olympic games.

So maybe Kodat will be the captain.:eek:

Sharapova's_Boy
Mar 21st, 2007, 01:55 AM
LOL. Kodat the Czech captain?!? :unsure:

Of course Nikki and Lucie are going to play singles. The key for the Czechs is doubles.

The last two years they lost the World Group I Play-Off in a deciding doubles match. (2006 2-3 FRA, 2005 2-3 ITA).

Lucie Hradecka has been having great results in doubles. Perhaps she should be considered.

Yellow Moon
Mar 21st, 2007, 04:13 PM
It may also be time to put up some young rookies like Cetkovska and maybe Hlavackova: they are very good dblz players who will go the lenght to prove themselves in a national tournament. Unlike other Czech WTA girls that have alienated themselves from the team effors by running the "girls on tour" rat race for too long...

SloKid

Well not only is she having great results, she's been having them with a fellow Czech, Voracova, maybe they could be called up as they are already a team and play together well.
They got to the semis last week in IW losing to the eventual winners Raymond/Stosur.
They also won a title last year in Portoroz together (although they won their semi via a retirement and the final via a walkover :o), I was there and watched them play and they are a solid team.

Iveta really doesn't play that well in Fed Cup. I remember her losing to Viratprasert in a WGII Play-Off. :help:

I'd like to see some new faces in the team. Strycova is a good doubles player, Hradecka and Voracova have been having good results together. Perhaps even some juniors like Vankova or Kvitova.

Just anything so that they don't lose another deciding doubles match. :(

Lunaris
Mar 26th, 2007, 07:42 AM
I think it depends more on Daniela's singles because I see both Lucie and Nicole thrashing slovak No.2 be it either Cibulkova or Rybarikova. If Daniela can win both of her singles (which I hope but doubt :o ) let the doubles decide. Although you never know what to expect on clay.

Wiggly
Mar 26th, 2007, 12:58 PM
I tought it was Hard courts.

I think on clay Nicole has the edge against Daniela and she never lost a set against her. Even Lucie will have a good shot against Danka on clay.

Whenever someone beats Daniela, it's over.:lol:

The Doubles, I don't know what they're gonna do, they always try Benesova/Peschke or Benesova/Strycova. But they needs to change that.

Lunaris
Mar 26th, 2007, 10:39 PM
Daniela probably wouldn't play on hard-courts. She takes it more as a preparation for the upcoming claycourt season.

Wiggly

Nicole's daddy is now officialy the captain.

He seems to have decided Lucie and Nicole will play.

And he will decide between :

Kodat už má jasno o širší nominaci, v níž semifinalistku Australian Open Vaidišovou a čtvrtfinalistku úvodního grandslamu sezony Lucii Šafářovou doplňují Eva Birnerová, Iveta Benešová, Květa Peschkeová a Barbora Záhlavová-Strýcová. Zúžení na konečnou čtveřici přijde po turnaji v Miami.

The Slovaks will be tough to beat in doubles with Hantuchova and Husarova.

I think he should pick Peschke for doubles. Strycova is a great player in doubles also. But Peschke/Benesova had great success together.

btw, her name is not Peschkeová !
It's a german name.

They always add ova. sometimes it's even Peschkeovou.:confused:

I agree Kveta and Iveta were great. But in France they sucked (Iveta:help:) and they didn't seemed to have the chemistry they had.

I don't think they will try Juniors there because if they loose it's another year to wait until WGI.

I don't think they will go with Doubles specialist like Navratilova or Uhlirova because if Lucie or Nicole lis injuried, there is no way they are going to beat Daniela or even Cibulkova.

Kveta hasn't play Singles this year.

In my oponion they will pick Nicole, Lucie, Iveta (or Kveta) and Barbora. Because it's a young team who likes each others (they're all "friends"). And they can play Singles and Doubles.

But Iveta sucked 2 straight times last year so she might be out of the team. And they won't put Lucie in Doubles and neither Nicole/Barbora. So they will put Kveta.

Nicole and Luci just can't volley.

Apr 10th, 2007, 11:21 PM
I love Daniela, but if Nicole and Lucie are in decent form, they'll beat her on red clay without too many problems.

Singles is really crucial for the Czechs, because the Slovaks probably would win the doubles.

Lunaris
Apr 10th, 2007, 11:54 PM
I wouldn't underestimate Daniela, especially after todays Nicole's loss. And to say Lucie will beat her easily is similar to Matt Croning's prediciton about Golovin.

Mathijs
Apr 11th, 2007, 12:24 PM
Nice team, the match can go all directions, but i hope on a Czech win...

I wouldn't say that Lucie can't volley, the last time i was in Rosmalen (back in 2005) she did well at the net partnering Koukalova....

Nicole, Lucie, Iveta and Barbora.
Nicole lost to Krajicek last night and hasn't been in too good a form, hopefully she'll be ready for Fed Cup.
I wonder in what form Lucie will show up as well.
With Iveta's Fed Cup record in recent years, she's obviously a risky pick, but seeing how she'll probably only play doubles, it's not really important, esp. since the tie could likely be decided by then.

Sharapova's_Boy
Apr 12th, 2007, 11:14 AM
Not really surprised by the team.

Still not too keen on Iveta playing a deciding doubles match with Barbora. Last year @ the AO I saw Barbora and Nikki play really well against Hantuchova/Sugiyama.

Nicole isn't as bad at doubles as everyone thinks.

But, again, it's crucial for the Czechs to have wrapped up the tie before the doubles.

Wiggly

If Nicole is 2-0 in Singles, she will play Doubles.

From one practice, she walked out with an absent-minded face only to sit alone for an hour under a parasol." It also tells about Iveta pretending to be without emotions and "after losing an exchange, she walks with a look of a girl who just got stood-up by a boyfriend. When she wins a point, her look is not that much different..." Very few can figure her out, but overall, Iveta is a great team player. Her ups and downs throuhout her career are compared to Forrest Gump (?).

I know it's early and it was her first match of this indoor season but if Lucie continues with this kind of performances, we may as well lose to Slovakia at home in February and be relegated again. :help:
I hate when they have to play each other. :fiery:

Do you mean that he won't be coaching our team next year? No, I didn't hear anything like that. From what I know Kodat extended the contract with czech tennis federation to coach our Fed Cup team in 2008. Anyway even if he didn't both Nicole and Lucie are already confirmed to play at least in February against Slovakia and I am sure both will be very motivated to win regardless of who is the coach.

Petr Pala is the new captain. He was "manager" of the Davis Cup and Fed Cup team for the last 2 years.
