Too bad they chose Cepelova. I think Kucova (Zuzana), could me more helpful.

Czech 3:2 as always


always always always when we meet, our girls are out of form (or one of them) and they have one good one and the annyoing Peschke who wins the doubles.

If Petra and Lucie can keep up their good form then we should win.

Petra should win her singles matches unless she ballbashes herself out of the matches. Zahlavova Strycova and Peschke will win the doubles, although Daniela is a decent doubles player. But I expect the Czechs once again to get through. I remember these ties back when Vaidisova was saving the Czechs all the time :sad:

The slovaks should have chosen a clay-surface. That would favour Dominika and Daniela played well on clay last year. And more important it would weaken Petra.

She won't play anyway but I think chosing a promising junior over a hopeless 28yo isn't such a bad thing ;)

Exactly what I was thinking, I mean Kvitova and Safarova are very good in IH. The slovaks would have much more chances had they choose claycourts. :tape:

As others have said an indoor carpet service plays right into the hands of the Czech team who in fairness would have been the favourite on any surface. But choosing an indoor carpet sure as hell doesn't help the Slovaks cause. And yeah, the Czechs look unbeatable in doubles too. I wish I could see a way through for the Slovaks but I can't. :sad:

Kvitova will win both of her singles and Safarova will beat Hantuchova, and the Czechs will win the doubles :p

There are several reasons why I think they didnt choose clay.

Mainly, Fed Cup is not the main concern of either player of our team. We already won Fed Cup and Daniela and Domi are playing probably mainly because it´s the Olympic Games ticket. They both concentrate on their singles career and since it´s now the hard court season, a Fed Cup win over Czechs is not worth switching to clay and break the hard court preparation.

Im sure both Domi and Daniela will try their best. But if they lose, the world is not going down. Especially Daniela has achieved everything you can achieve in Fed Cup but her singles career is so underachieving.
Honestly she must do something big before she retires.

not only girls and not only in tennis:D but who knows everything can happen our girls can be tired from Aussie and Domi and Daniela are on the same level like our girls so I see it 60:40 for us because of doubles... you will break us one day and it can be next week.... anyway I´m looking forward to seeing the girls in national colors and hope the atmosphere will be great cos it´s a big derby and I love this kind of matches...:hearts:

Didnt she lose to Kvitova 0 and 4 in Hobart or somewhere?

I think Kvitova is bound to win her singles matches. She plays well in Fed Cup and indoors. Safarova usually has the edge playing Slovak girls.
In doubles, we have no chance with Husarova gone and Daniela not palying doubles anymore. (Even at times Hantuchova played with Husarova, the two Slovak best doubles players, they never really matched, not a good team overall, just two really strong doubles individuals :tape: They lost awful matches both in Athens and Beijing)

It will be a huge surprise for me if our girls pull this one through.

:D

But we still were in Africa. So we are not that bad :)

I hope there will be really good matches. I remember from the last two ties there were really great matches. Hantuchova three set lost to Safarova on clay. Both Vaidisova´s matches with Rybarikova and Cibulkova.

Will be really interesting, I´m especially looking forward to Daniela vs. Petra Kvitova.

Yes the only thing that can save us is tiredness of Petra.

We will see ;)

Head to head

Kvitova 1-0 Cibulkova Brisbane QF Kvitova won 6-0, 6-4
Kvitova 0-0 Hantuchova 1st Meeting

Safarova 0-2 Cibulkova 2010 WIMBLEDON GRASS D. Cibulkova 7-6(5) 6-4
2008 DOHA HARDR64 D. Cibulkova 6-4 6-3
Safarova 1-1 Hantuchova 2007 FED CUP CLAY L.Safarova 7-6(1) 4-6 6-3 2007 STUTTGART HARD R32 D. Hantuchova 6-1 6-3

Safarova has a losing record against Cibulkova but both matches Lucie was in awful form at the time, she seems to be playing well now.

Kvitova destroyed Cibulkova only 3 weeks ago, so you would favour Petra for this one, but both are known for their incosistency so it is still hard to predict.

we understand each other in our mother tongues and we talk in English here it´s pretty weird:D Germans talk in their threat in German and don´t care if someone understands :D

I am a bit scared of Petra because I know she´s no. 18 but when she reached the semis in Wimbledon then she played very inconsistently and that can happen again we´ll see but she plays very good in Fed Cup... she always had problems with playing consistent but she´s in new position seems she improved a lot and she´s our biggest talent so it will be nice to face Slovakian girls wo are pretty hot:hearts: so at least you will win the Fed CUp Miss :lol:

takze od teraz uz len cesky a slovensky :lol:

Bude to zaujimave. Dufam ze Dominika zahra dobre. Daniela je nevyspytatelna. Tento rok som ju este ani nevidel hrat. Myslim ze vypadla na kazdom turnaji v prvom kole :tape: Takze od nej moc bodov necakam, aj ked vo Fed Cup-e vie zahrat dobre.

Naopak Petra iba potvrdzuje tie kvality co vzdy mala. Asi si ju uz videl hrat nazivo. Ja som bol v Prahe 2008 na tom turnaji WTA. Na centralnom dvorci hrali Kvitova vs Azarenka. Skoncilo to nejak 63,64 pre Azarenku ale ten zapas vypadal uplne inak. Petra tlacila Azarenku cely zapas, same lajny, Azarenka bola bezradna. Rozhodol vzdy jeden break, ale Petra vyhravala svoje gemy samymi winnermi. Azarenka isla po zapase hned na treningovy dvorec nasratá :D a nutila trenera aby na nu strielal lopty co najsilnejsie ako vie (ako Petra) a snazila sa to vracat, lebo proti Petre vobec nevedela co am hrat, ako na tie tvrde dlhe udery odpovedat.

A Petra vyzera ze bude teraz stabilna hracka. Uvidime. Ale myslim ze body skor uhrame cez Luciu.

A stvorhru nechcem vidiet, dufam ze nebude rozhodujuca. Nemam rad Kvetu, takze nechcem aby vyhrala :D Ak mate vyhrat, tak radsej v dvojhrach 3:1

myslím, že takhle je to už lepší:lol: docela taky víc u vás věřím Domče, že udělá nějaký ten bod, vůbec je to hodně vyrovnaný si myslím, i žebříčkově... když si vezmu, že Petra byla v žebříčku před AO ještě na podobný úrovní jako Lucka, Daniela a Domča, takže já to vidim fakt hodně vyrovnaně... je pravda, že jste nás ještě neporazili ve Fed Cupu, doufám, že si to pamatuju dobře, jestli ne, tak mě oprav... ¨

já nevim furt co s Petrou:D je vidět, že na grandslamech se jí daří, ale furt jí mám zafixovanou jako hráčku, která jednou dokáže porazit silnou soupeřku a v dalším kole úplně zbytečně vypadnout s horší hráčkou... bohužel mi po tom semifinále ve Wimbledonu nahrála, když do US Open nevyhrála ani jeden zápas, tak doufám, že ty výkony už ustálila a o víkendu a v následujících měsících to ukáže...

myslím, že přes Lucku byste bodík mohli udělat, ale ona je taky jak den a noc:D možná Pála zkusí Báru i na single, rozhodně bych byl radši, kdyby se nerozhodovalo ve čtyřhře, fakt nechci mít nervy až do konce...

jinak Petru jsem naživo neviděl, já byl vlastně až na turnaji v Praze loni, když to tam bohužel bylo naposled, snad jen prozatím naposled.... byl jsem tam dva dny a maximálně jsem si to užil, vyfotil se s Ivetou, pokecal s ní chvilku, paráda... Petra měla bohužel jinej program a Lucka snad odstouila kvůli zranění..

no umím si Azarenku představit naštavanou, a to ještě neprohrávala, to by bylo představení:lol:

Cepelova will be in our Fed cup team forever, that´s for sure, I´ve heard that her father is a very big friend with our tennis federation so it was not that surprising they chose her as 900 something in previous Fed Cup:p I´m bit disappointed because probably I won´t never see Zuzana in Fed Cup team, although Jana is of course a big hope it´s very depressing that my fave was never, and never will be representing my country in Fed Cup although she is 4th best women here and no one near her is in the ranking:sad: Now she is in a slump but in previous fed cup tie she was in a great shape and I was very very furious that they choose Wienerova although she was in a uberslump and she is hopeless in hard and Cepelova who wasn´t even TOP 900:tape::sad:...but it´s not secret that many players mostly old not that succesful players but I think also some young - Jurikova who was fired from National Tennis Centre and you can see that she was never chosen for Fed Cup team although she is also a very promising young girl, our Nr. 5 even and more experienced as Jana... or Zlochova who won the most titles from all Slovaks last year but she hasn´t even a financial support from our federation(!!!) like other "hopes" do, had always a very bad relationship with our federation and they simply don´t exist for them

That would be great!!!:p But I´m sure that it´s true, there was an article about Zlochova in the end of the year and also Zuzana K. in an interwiev said that the federation is not interested in her...Also Juanes once wrote me that Lenka Jurikova was fired and I don´t see any reason why Lenka would give him a wrong information about that:p...That thing about Cepelova´s father may be a rumour but I won´t be surprised that the things, people are writing about this, are true...+ I remember also another case - Tvaroskova in local newspaper said that she is able to play doubles in fed cup but they prefer other players, she was our second best doubles player then, near TOP 100:)

I know all slovak players and very well jana :) i see who is her father
I will ask to martina babakova this evening i think her opinion can be important because she isnt in tennis anymore
And i see too uberalova tomorrow i will have opinion all slovak but u know french federation is same i think everywhere like that

I´m looking forward I really want to know the truth:p But most of the things I wrote here (except Cepelova´s case) were what the players said so that´s not just my fiction I still can find those certain articles in google I guess:p If I wrote some untruth information about Cepelova´s father then I´m sorry...there are just rumours people are saying and writing about his. But you know, if you hear and read this kind of information all the time and then you see that she is in Fed Cup team (especially in previous tie) then it´s very suspicious...:shrug: It´s not about that she is young and promising..that´s true but we have many others hopes, which were above her in the rankings and need an experience from Fed Cup maybe...but they still chose her, although she almost wasn´t even in TOP 1000:shrug:

My intuition tells me that an upset might be possible here, Cibulkova's form was was not that bad in Australia and with a little help from a recovered Dani the curse may be broken - after all the Fedcup has always had very special laws. The dark horse might be riding a good hunt. :)

I give my vote to Slovakia, and I am really looking forward to a very interesting Fedcup tie. :)

I agree. Its a complete shame they arent using Zuzka. She should be there to support over Jana :o. I mean it's not like Zuzka is that far off from Magda's ranking :o.
We just have to hope Zuzka gets her ranking up so they will have no choice but to not ignore her!
