I think Slovenia but it really could go either way :shrug:. Hercog is in bad form...

I think Canada is in huge trouble! :hysteric:
No chance in Doubles and pretty much no chance in the singles matches.

I think the chances of winning for Canada were even better in their last tie against Serbia, I really can't see them get through this one on clay. Hercog can win both of her singles matches and Zec-Peskiric one for sure and then in doubles, Srebotnik should make the difference.

I actually think we might have a shot? :o Who will play singles for Slovenia, Hercog and Peskiric? It's not a stretch to imagine us winning 2 of those, and Becca could win both of hers + Dubois pulling one out. I don't know, I'm probably crazy, but I'll say 3-2 Canada. :lol:

Bouchard is so well spoken and mature! :eek:

Hmm, I'm not sure if Slovenia will win this tie. I wish, but Hercog and Zec Peškirič are both in bad shape. But if it will be 2-2 after first 4 matches then I think Slovenia will win doubles match. :shrug: Oh, and Klepač isn't playing - it will be one of Kolar or Šrimpf. Maybe Kolar would be even better choice for singles matches as Zec Peškirič. ;)

Hercog is 5-10 and Zec 2-11 for the season so far. Canada will hardly get a better chance to stay in the top group.

On a side note - I'm ditching Zec-P as my fave. It's getting tiresome listening to her interviews always saying how her game is improving, how she works so much on her serve and how she feels her form is getting better. You're about to drop out of top 200, your game is going nowhere, your serve is worse than ever and all you managed to do in the first 4 months of this year was beating Tammi Patterson!!! Stop being delusional and go back to Niki Pilic academy!:o

ughhh.

I would love to see Klepac - Bouchard match :hearts: :lol:

Boreas
Apr 16th, 2011, 10:34 AM
I think Zec-P isn't even playing top 500 level.:lol: Klepac or kolar should've played this match:o

Boreas
Apr 16th, 2011, 10:40 AM
oh my, oh my. She SHOULD retire, indeed!

Boreas
Apr 16th, 2011, 10:42 AM
Serve - non existant
Forehand - non existant
backhand - barely present
mentality - lousy


Why does she play tennis?

Boreas
Apr 16th, 2011, 10:47 AM
Kolar beat her 64 61 when they were training. :haha:

On clay?:o

Boreas
Apr 16th, 2011, 10:51 AM
Painful to watch. I'm cringing whenever i see her trying to serve or hit a forehand. Plain awful.

Ryan
Apr 16th, 2011, 12:13 PM
6-3 7-5 for Becca, very solid first match for the Canucks. Would love to see Bouchard put us up 2-0, but I think the big matches will be tomorrow - can Marino beat Hercog, is Bouchard able to beat Peskiric?

Boreas
Apr 16th, 2011, 12:34 PM
Peskiric will play tomorrow only if SLO captain's blind. So either Kolar or klepac...

Boreas
Apr 16th, 2011, 12:48 PM
Serve - non existant
Forehand - non existant
backhand - barely present
mentality - lousy


Why does she play tennis?

And now

forehand - great at times
backhand - non existant
serve - great
mentality - lousy

This Bouchard thingie manages to make Hercog look like a semi-decent player:tape:

Belmont Lad
Apr 16th, 2011, 02:35 PM
Good win for Becca to open the tie. :yeah: Genie must have been nervous stepping up from junior/satellite ITF to this sort of stage. Hopefully the ladies will come out strong tomorrow, 1-1 is not a bad start! :yeah:

Drake1980
Apr 16th, 2011, 03:00 PM

This Bouchard thingie? :shrug:

Ryan
Apr 16th, 2011, 06:57 PM
Expected 1-1 split I think, after Day 1. Hopefully Becca can beat Hercog, that will be a really interesting match. I almost feel like they've got to put Dubois in, wouldn't she be a big favorite over Peskiric?

Vincey!
Apr 16th, 2011, 08:47 PM
Good win for Becca on clay!!:D

Genie did really well in that 2nd set! she just woke up a bit too late, I think if she would have started to play that level right from that start she would have beaten Hercog! Good thing is that she knows she didn't play well. So it's looking promising ;)

Jorn

Will Masa play today?

36 57 was not that bad...

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 09:53 AM
Rubber 3: Hercog v Marino 5-5...

Vincey!
Apr 17th, 2011, 10:00 AM
Marino takes the first set 7-5! :D Thanks to choking Polona :tape:

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 10:09 AM
Polona 2-0 30-0, she will save SLO today... ;)

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 10:10 AM
Btw, Will that Canadian girl Genie B. (sp?) play today?

Boreas
Apr 17th, 2011, 10:13 AM
Hercog is not very bad, but she probably shouldn't be losing sets to Marino on clay. Not when you're being praised as a future top 10 player and a slam winner...

Boreas
Apr 17th, 2011, 10:20 AM
^ well,after this clay season she's not really praised anymore.

Jausovec said so:shrug:

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 10:33 AM
Polona 5-7, 5-2...

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 10:34 AM
Polona wins set 6-2 :) One more to go!

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 10:57 AM
5-7, 6-2, 3-3...

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 11:04 AM
4-4...

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 11:04 AM
4-5 Polona will serve stay in match... Come on!

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 11:08 AM
*30-30...


Masa will play... she's on the sb anyway...

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 11:10 AM
Polona holds! 5-5*

Boreas
Apr 17th, 2011, 11:12 AM
There's no final set TB right?:unsure:

Zec-P will have to win her match:hysteric:

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 11:18 AM
Polona *7-6...

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 11:20 AM
*30-0... Hold on!

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 11:21 AM
3 mps and win! :yeah:

Vincey!
Apr 17th, 2011, 11:26 AM
Becca :sad: That was a close match against a claycourter! She could really use to learn to slide she'd get to the ball better but that's something hard to learn for a tall girl! great fight though. Go Genie now! ;)

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 12:13 PM
Masa 1-0, 1-1, 1-2...

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 12:17 PM
Masa 2-2...

Boreas
Apr 17th, 2011, 12:26 PM
Zec-P is being a hot mess:tape:

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 12:39 PM
3-3...


But should Masa lose there's no way Polona and Srebotnik will lose also in dubs.....

Boreas
Apr 17th, 2011, 12:40 PM
Bouchard is kinda cute. And strangely enough she can slide:eek:

Boreas
Apr 17th, 2011, 12:43 PM
these creatures can't serve. Especially the slovene one!

Natash.
Apr 17th, 2011, 12:46 PM
:lol: Come on Genie. End this hot mess of a set. :sobbing:

Boreas
Apr 17th, 2011, 12:48 PM
Zec is literally afraid of serving.

Natash.
Apr 17th, 2011, 12:50 PM
:lol: :spit: Ends with a double fault. Still got another set of this. :( Let's go Genie.

Boreas
Apr 17th, 2011, 12:52 PM
Oh, i didn't know you can watch this online!:lol: It's painful to watch.

Boreas
Apr 17th, 2011, 12:57 PM
Bouchard hits a serve with a speed of about 60km/h and Zec manages to hit a moonball into the middle of the court.

Boreas
Apr 17th, 2011, 01:04 PM
Luckily the entrance was free:tape:

Natash.
Apr 17th, 2011, 01:05 PM
:lol: Imagine if this goes to 3 sets.

Boreas
Apr 17th, 2011, 01:08 PM
Even the umpire sounds superbly... bored:lol:

Bouchard to end this nightmare, please:hysteric:

Vincey!
Apr 17th, 2011, 01:23 PM
Genie finally won 6-4 6-1!

Masa was so bad! :O lol Glad Genie pulled it out, she played well I think! She was agressive from that start at least this time ;)

igralec33
Apr 17th, 2011, 01:38 PM
Maša is really not even TOP 300 player at moment. Played like amateur today but on other hand Bouchard is really talented. Impressed with her. :yeah: Hopefully Srebotnik and Hercog won't allow surprise against Fichman and Marino. :unsure:
Just wonder why Srebotnik for example didn't play single match against Bouchard today ... :shrug:

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 02:14 PM
The Doubles started: 1-1...

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 02:26 PM
2-2... Maybe it won't be soo easy as I expected... ;)

Boreas
Apr 17th, 2011, 02:39 PM
Fichman is such a sweet energizer bunny:hearts:

Canada just had 2 set points in Doubles against really good team! :eek:

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 03:10 PM
I saw Live in Holland Srebotnik play in Fed Cup in 1999, maybe she's now too old and slow... as Hingis said about one... ;)

Jorn
Apr 17th, 2011, 03:12 PM

Jorn

I has follow Slovenia in Fed Cup since 1999 when Tina Pisnik and KS played... (mainly in Europe/Africa zone Group) a good win this weekend as its rare they stays in WG II...
