This thread will be opened on a trial basis; if all goes well we may allow it to stay.

It is to be used for live commentary for matches, be very clear this is not a live scoring thread.

This will be used as the official thread, new threads are not to be created for each match, this will result in the closure of this thread.

You don't often see players with her height blasting 1st serves at around c. 175-180 km/h. And very well placed.

Things were turning nasty with biased linescalling in this last game, and Mariana Alves had to make a couple of overrules.

Off to get tickets for the Prague final :bolt:

If the Czechs play Russia, Czech Republic gets choice of ground as Russia had choice of ground in their last tie.

If the Czechs play Serbia, choice of ground decided by lot as they've never played before and IIRC in case of decision by lot choice of ground will belong to the winner of the Italy vs Czech Republic SF.

Correct?

Won't watch Parmentier vs Rampre since it's hard to see the ball.

I feel sort of sorry for the French journeywomen, most of whom have nothing to do with the FFT vs CAKE spat (but Razzano does :lol: ) and now have to carry the colours under pressure. Fortunately for them an already easy tie was made easier when Polonia w/d.

Can't quite believe the weather is much nicer in Kharkov than in sunny Portugal.

Because Görges has some virus infection. Bascically Germany has five top 40 players and goes into a tie with the singles options Petkovic (of a three months injury lay-off), Görges (with a virus infection) and Grönefeld, while leaving out a healthy Barthel. A monkey could do a better job than the German federation. :rolleyes:

McFAIL a delight to watch when she's given the chance to (to use TF's latest buzzword) "set up points". Don't expect much from her on red clay as she doesn't move too well on it and (unusually for an Anglo) often entrenches herself kms behind the baseline.

do they ever play fed cup on grass btw?

Maybe the UK will if they get choice of ground next year?

Australia sometimes uses grass for Davis Cup ties, but for the Fed Cup they won't as its players suck on grass.

The US doesn't need to, even though they did it for Davis Cup in 2006 IIRC.

Patrick345

I hope all this finally puts the delusion to rest that Pavlyuchenkova can win slams. No. Just no.

She is just fat. You could have said the same about early Davenport. Of course Davenport was a better ballstriker. I called this in the first set. The same pattern develops in every Pavlyuchenkova match this year. Starts out decent, but by the middle of the first set (after 5-6 games) she gets slower and eventually just runs out of gas.

Corswandt
Apr 22nd, 2012, 11:40 AM
thats a point. where the heck is barthel!? her year's been great!

Barthel is a major league choker and that sort of player can't be relied upon to withstand the additional pressure of a Fed Cup tie.

Plus I suspect her game on clay will relapse in flat out defense rather than counterpunching. That's what I saw on those clay challengers she played last year at least.

Germany's mistake was picking Stuttgart + clay. Had they chosen some dreary barn with an ice rink in Schleswig to play this tie, maybe Stosur wouldn't have showed up. But picking Stuttgart on clay the very week before Stosur was scheduled to play there - great move. Selecting Kerber for the first rubber was also st00pid.
