Iva is doing it right: Martic, Tomljanovic, Vekic are in.

She's going to invite Lucic for the last spot.

Considering the draw, as well as the fabulous form which our girls showed at the start of this season...is anyone still looking forward to FC? :D

Did you guys really think Mirjana will play, after she did this same thing (signed-up and pull out) for how many times already? I was actually expecting this.

I agree about Jurak, she would've actually been my pick in the first place. Maybe she can't commit because of her obligations on the Tour.

Anyway, I don't see our team getting out of this euro-african zone mess before 2015 or something. Hope they prove me wrong.

I also expected that Mirjana won't commit to it.
She never really was crazy about FC and now especially with honey moon going on...

to be honest, i had some strange feeling that Mirjana will not be selected for the team or she'll turn down an invitation to squad or something.... i do not agree with you saying she's not up for fed cup, acctualy she had great results playing fed cup but she's not in squad since she escaped to america... after that there was some problems in communication with ex Cro fed cup captain Goran Prpic... now, i'm not even sure Majoli has contacted her for this years event, nor Mirjana would play if she got the invitation from Majoli as well... anyway, i think it's a great shame that Mirjana will not participate...:confused:

It didn't look to good at one point, as she was trailing in the third (by 3-1 I think), so yeah, a valuable win for both - the team as well as her confidence.

lost :sad: soooo close 6-7(2) 6-7(6)

Ouch. Losing 2-1 to Romania is no disgrace though, especially considering that we couldn't rely on some of our better players.

i really think two things should have happened differently today:
1) vekic should have played instead of mijacika...both would be out of their league, but it would be a big experience for donna and would have made ani fresh for doubles
2) jurak really should have been on the squad for doubles

Tinjic retired to Mrdeza after just 1 game (hope nothing serious), so we are safe. Somewhat of a good news is also that Petra was scheduled to play doubles today (but that match was never played cause the tie was resolved in singles), which indicates that her injury/sickness is probably not too serious.

Petra had to retire because of blisters.
Very careless IMO.
