Spaniards haven't arrived yet. Team containing 15 people, which flew from Spain through Frankfurt, was supposed to come to Gdańsk-Rębiechowo airport at 5:30 PM on Monday, but all flights were cancelled today - told Katarzyna Posłuszny from Polish Tennis Association - We hope that Spanish team will manage to arrive on Tuesday.

On Tuesday Polish players should come - Agnieszka Radwańska, Marta Domachowska, Klaudia Jans and Alicja Rosolska.

On Tuesday evening we want to get to know the venue and surface and on Wednesday we'll start normal trainings. We think that three days of trainings will be enough to get prepared. The majority of our team will come to Sopot from Warsaw. Only Agnieszka and her father will come by plane from Kraków. If flights are cancelled tomorrow, Isia should arrive on Wednesday morning which won't destroy our training programme - told Tomasz Wiktorowski, Polish captain.

Meanwhile in Sopot, everything is ready to host the players. In the venue of the match - The hall of Sopot Tennis Club, locker rooms were renewed and the new court was installed. On Saturday the floor was delivered from Olivia Hall of Gdańsk (it was used by Asseco Prokom basketball players) and Taraflex surface was laid on it.

On 24th April (Saturday) two singles matches will be played, on Sunday two singles and deciding doubles.

Its seem some country's open the air space.

Germany and Italy have extended flight restrictions until 6pm - Italy this morning briefly reopened its airspace in the north only to shut it a short time later.

Denmark said it was opening its airspace above 35,500ft while the Czech Republic said its airspace would be open for 48 hours.

The ash cloud is expected to hit the east coast of the US at 6pm.

Spaniards in the clouds

Eyjafjöll. This is a name of Icelandic volcano which still produce an ash. It becomes quickly a hero of the Poland - Spain match. Aeroplanes don't fly in Europe and we are not sure if Spanish players will manage to arrive to Sopot. According to Royal Spanish Tennis Association they will come but we found out they considered postponing the match. But they told us they will definitely arrive on time. Poles are arriving. Klaudia Jans was first on Monday, on Tuesday Marta Domachowska and Alicja Rosolska came to Sopot. The three players will train in the afternoon with the captain Tomasz Wiktorowski. Agnieszka Radwańska is due to come on Wednesday morning as she has to travel from Kraków to Sopot by train because of the volcanic ash. In the hall there's already made a taraflex court. The renewed locker room is waiting for the players. A show-case with cups and diplomas scored by the players of Sopot Tennis Club has been put there. We hope it will inspire Polish players and will depress Spaniards. The captain Tomasz Wiktorowski told us that Polish team will play their matches wearing black palls.

Hopefully there will be a livestream :)

I just don't understand why TVP1 won't show those matches live (instead of TVP Sport, as hardly anyone has this channel) considering that those are matches between two nations (and one of them is Poland) in Fed Cup and not matches in a random challenger :confused:. Surely showing "Śpiewaj i walcz" and "Gdzie jest księżniczka?" can't be a deciding factor in this case :unsure:(in contrast to the ski jumping tournament in February). And i also doubt that they think that people will buy the connection to TVP Sport just in order to watch 4 tennis matches.

I guess they might think that tennis is just not important enough to show it on their main channel and appropriate for their sports channel :sad:

According to onet.pl --> http://sport.onet.pl/tenis/lzy-domachowskiej-na-konferencji-prasowej,1,3214602,wiadomosc.html Domachowska had an emotional breakdown during press conference and walked away in tears. Some journalists asked her when was the last time she won a Fed Cup match and also any other match on the Tour lately :o Guess Marta is rock-bottom on morale now and more losses are to be expected :help:

But being serious I have never watched a match in TV that Domachowska won (except Amanmuradova in Warsaw last year :tape:)

in 2nd game Maria started playing serve and volley again, Marta had one good winner. 1-1

Apr 24th, 2010, 03:15 PM
3rd game was awful for Marta - 2 dfs, 4th - finished with a very good volley by Maria. 1-3

adam_ads_n
Apr 24th, 2010, 03:20 PM
5th game - Marta had some good winning serves and also forced Maria to make mistakes from time to time. She still has a chance, but it all depends on Maria's serve. 2-3

adam_ads_n
Apr 24th, 2010, 03:23 PM
6th game - Maria serves good, made only one error, Marta couldn't handle the returns

adam_ads_n
Apr 24th, 2010, 03:27 PM
7th game - Marta got broken but she risked a lot, trying to have some winners. 2-5

adam_ads_n
Apr 24th, 2010, 03:30 PM
8th game - serve & volley again, 2-6. Marta didn't play that awful, however she has to have a good form tommorow to play good against Carla...

Please, ban Domachowska from playing Fed Cup! It's better to have someone younger player in team, at least she will gain some experience and effect will be the same. :shrug:
