Swiss Fed Cup team consists of Romina Oprandi (WTA-67), Stefanie Voegele (WTA-100), Timea Bacsinszky (WTA-185) and Amra Sadikovic (WTA-236). Oprandi can be tricky but if our girls play well we should win this tie.

Hopefully it gets to 3-0 so the youngsters also get a chance to play in the dead rubbers :)

Mestach is still injured ? :sad:

I think I would have picked Benoit over Bonaventure and ignored the ranking rather looking at recent match results.

I think Mestach is indeed still injured.
Benoit has had some good results lately but let's not forget it has been in rather weak 10k's. Ysaline hasn't really done much but she played in bigger tournaments. So it's a toss-up really. She will only play in case there's a dead rubber anyway.

Fed Cup

Yanina Wickmayer BEL def. Stefanie Voegele SUI 6-1 4-6 8-6 :unsure:
Romina Oprandi SUI def. Kirsten Flipkens BEL 6-3 6-3 :(

The Swiss are definitely more tough than expected. Good thing Yanina managed to win in the end, if we would have been 2-0 down by now... :help:
Please do better tomorrow girls!!

Wow, didn't expect this either... But it's also on clay, not the best surface for us... But good that Yanina could win, and hope that Kirsten will play better tomorrow :(

There are no camera's. And Yanina is losing too to Oprandi. It seems like Oprandi will be the one to kill us :sad:

Van Uytvanck will play now. I hope she can handle the pressure :unsure:

So weird that they don't let Kirsten play the other singles match?
They think Van Uytvanck has a better chance? Or maybe they want Kirsten to play doubles with Yanina ?

Why has Flipkens been replaced with Van Uytvanck?

Sure Kirsten lost her first match but have to give credit to Oprandi there who just beat Wuckmayer by an easier score than she beat Fliokens. This march is to keep the tie alive, that's a lot of pressure!

I guess Ann Devries wants to keep Flipkens fresh for doubles. A big gamble, but we'll see...

So she thinks that Van Uytvanck will beat Voegele, interesting...

I don't think so, Alison was leading 3-0 in the second, en is now 3-4 down :sad:
Belgium will lose :(

I hate the fact that not a single channel is showing tennis anymore now that Kim & Justine have retired. This tie wasn't even mentioned on the 1 o'clock news on één today. Heck they even mentioned rugby and boxing but nothing about Fed Cup :(

They needed to get it to a live doubles for doubles to mean anything . ..

This is a bad loss and I think Devries should be asked questions. Wouldn't be surprised to see a change.

Flipkens was injured ;) There was no other option for her then choosing Alison.
There were no camera's so they couldn't show it.

Disappointed weekend anyway :sad:

What's this? Football? :rolleyes:

Devries did all she could. It's Wickmayer and Flipkens who lost to an inferior player (ranking-wise). Having said that, Oprandi really must've stepped up her game and we all know what's she's capable of don't we? She beat Clijsters at Rosmalen less than 2 years ago...

I agree with Bram.
