Iva will have her hands full this weekend! Its gonna be tough!!!! Same for the Aussies!

So Barbora is playing singles for the Czechs?? Wow! Go girl! :)

The Argentines would have breathed a sigh of relief after Mariana Diaz-Oliva won Palermo, as she was in terrible form before that.

Tx for that Eggy :)

WHY is pelletier playing singles instead of NEJEDLY???

Jul 19th, 2002, 08:34 PM
Are the doubles going to be played last or third?

Jul 19th, 2002, 08:43 PM
doubles in FED Cup are always 5th rubber (or 3rd in 3 rubber matches)
I prefer davis cup format where its 3rd but they have to really as they play best of 5 so can't play singles two days running

Barbora Strycova playing singles and doubles?
Yes, That' s great news, and the best choice they could make, but...she' still a junior. A fantastic one, and I'm sure they're gonna win, but...

Barbora is #1 in singles and doubles in juniors
this is very nearly an Under 18 Czech team like i said.
Klara is the oldie at 20, ave age of team is under 18

Marie-Eve possibly playing as its on clay...... Jana hasn't been able to buy a win for months as well.
