If Srebotnik would play singles then I would say we have chance to win. But with Zec Peškrič playing singles ... this allready mean 2 losses for us. And also I don't see Hercog beating both German players - Goerges and Petkovic. Maybe one of them if she would have good day. ;) At least, I see Slovenia winning doubles ... but maybe even this won't be possible ... if for example Srebotnik and Srimpf (where the hell they find her?? :weirdo:) will play. Kata, please play in singles. :awww: I'm sure she can still win against TOP 50 players.

If Germany selects ALG and Malek to play singles we're in with a chance...

Shrimp?:cuckoo: Even Jakupovic would be a better choice!

I'm about to drop a bomb on our National TV. Why would you buy the rights to broadcast the matches and show none of them?:o I'm seriously sick of seeing that annoying face of Maze, those flying skeletons and the rest of Slovene winter "elite". No results whatsoever, but we still get to see their faces every damn weekend!

She is in really bad form ... in AO qualies she won one game against Falconi. :rolls: Just hope she won't get double bagels in matches against Goerges and Petkovic. :rolleyes:

Non-existant:lol: I predict a 62 61 win and I'm being optimistic

but after the fast lead for Andrea it was a really tight set.
hope Andrea can win it in straight sets.

Andrea well done but what was that at the beginning of the 2nd set? :weirdo:

Boreas
Feb 5th, 2011, 02:11 PM
It was not a demolition job, but that was still cringeworthy from Masa. I'll go to Tengo shop and buy some stuff for Maša.

My list: - a brain
- a service
- a pair of glasses
- a forehand

Adrian.

:haha: Poor you :awww:

Boreas
Feb 5th, 2011, 02:20 PM
She played well when facing MPs, other than that she was way too passive and her balls had no other purpose but staying within the lines. and she still ended up with more UEs:shrug:

Boreas
Feb 5th, 2011, 02:24 PM
Masa will win Fes Open this year - I can feel that after she out-aced Petkovic 3-1. Big things coming for Maša this year:lol:

igralec33
Feb 5th, 2011, 02:25 PM
Actually Maša won more games against Petkovic as Sharapova!! :eek: :p
Zec Peškirič >>> Sharapova :rolls:
No, it wasn't so bad match for Maša but her double faults in key moments were too much. Sadly.
Hope Hercog can beat Goerges and keep this tie open. ;)
Gremo, Polona! :yeah:

Good start for Hercog. :D
Hercog - Goerges 3-1* :)

Polona is serving very well ... allready one service 192 km/h. :p

Of course, Hercog on clay is just better than both Germans ;)

Rovegun

Julia´s bad record in the Fed Cup continues unfortunately.. it´s going to be very interesting...

igralec33
Feb 5th, 2011, 04:12 PM
Polona played really great match. Amazing serving - first services all around 180 km/h. Great drop shots, great forehand ... and backhand still weakness. But overall very good performance by Polona. :yeah:
Tomorrow will be interesting ... Maša also didn't play bad against Petkovic so maybe she can upset Goerges. :p And Polona can beat Petkovic as well. ;) If one of them will win ... it can happen doubles will decide this tie. :p I'm somehow optimistic for tomorrow matches. :D
Gremo Slovenija!!! :cheer:

Michael!
Feb 5th, 2011, 04:30 PM
Slovenia might win this tie:eek:

first time in your life that you cheered for Hercog, huh? :p


Not a bit surprise, Julia can´t handle the pressure when she has to play for her country and against a player like Hercog you just have to play good tennis to beat her on clay, still, she has to beat Zec, that is clear, even an average performance should be enough to do that..Hercog vs. Petkovic will decide it, if 2-2 after singles, I think that Slovenia will have the advantage in doubles....

I think the same as Klepac and Majeric - FED cup is a waste of time. I didn't cheer for Hercog cause I don't really care who wins, but the Germans were considered obvious favorites to take this tie rather easily.

all I wanted this weekend was to see Zec-P play again and she didn't disappoint! She's still a bit of a mess, with a wacko (lack of) serve. With her non-existant serve she actually out-aced Petkovic, which is nothing short of a miracle. That miracle also indicates her win over Goerges tomorrow, so brace yourself!:lol::devil:

Petkovic should win this, if she holds her nerve. Görges too, unless she has an extremely bad day.

Polona's fan club in the stands. I wonder if they escaped from a retirement home:lol:

Could you please give updates, Boreas? How does Andrea play?:)

Any livestream link?:help:

Boreas

Petkovic leads 2-1 after she got broken. 40-40 on Hercog's serve

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 11:34 AM
No livestream...

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 11:34 AM
Petkovic plays - uhm, like always? Strong from the baseline, trying to play on Hercog's backhand.

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 11:36 AM
Hercog trying with drop shots, moderate success, so far. Petkovic breaks again for 3-1

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 11:38 AM
Hercog is pounding her forehand into the bottom of the net:help:

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 11:39 AM
Petkovic is liking Hercog's forehand much more than Zec's moonballs yesterday... Quite a few winners from her already.

rucolo
Feb 6th, 2011, 11:41 AM
Andrea leads 4-1!:eek::bounce:

Thanx for your updates, Boreas.

Petkovic is playing well, Hercog's forehand non-existant so far.

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 11:46 AM
Hercog is really really bad...

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 11:51 AM
Hercog is all over the place. Her forehand in particular... Why doesn't Hercog use her spin?

rucolo
Feb 6th, 2011, 11:51 AM
Wow Andrea 6-1!:speakles::yeah:

One more set, Andrea! Stay focused!

Petkovic is toying with Hercog - 3 BPs again...

6-1 2-0

Petkovic playing really well. Even on the net.

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 12:02 PM
2 more BPs:lol:

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 12:03 PM
6-1 3-0. 2 breaks up again. Polona:help:

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 12:04 PM
Hercog is missing easy smashes, volleys and easy putaways. She hit a few drop shots at the start of the match. Since then it's a downhill...

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 12:09 PM
6-1 4-0

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 12:12 PM
Hercog serving more than 180km/h and still not holding a one single service game!

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 12:12 PM
2 BPs again...

Boreas
Feb 6th, 2011, 12:16 PM
