Fed Cup tie moved to Phuket
Published on Feb 21, 2005
[TENNIS] Fans in the south

will have the opportunity of watching the historic Fed Cup World Group 2 tie between Thailand and Croatia as the event has been moved to Phuket from Bangkok in April.

Lawn Tennis Association of Thailand (LTAT) president Suwat Liptapanlop initiated the idea yesterday during the association’s annual meeting, suggesting the tournament be moved to Phuket to boost tourism after December’s tsunami. The tie, originally scheduled to be played at Muang Thong Thani in Bangkok, runs from April 23-24.

The tie will be the biggest nation-to-nation competition ever staged on Thai soil. Suwat, who is also the minister in charge of sports, said staging the event in Phuket would persuade international tourists to return to the south.

“There will be live coverage to many countries and foreigners will see the magnificent beach in Patong and might want to visit,’’ said Suwat.

The LTAT leader also said that tourists in Phuket would be encouraged to go to the competition as entry would be fee. He said a temporary court along with a 4,000 capacity stand would be set up.

Thailand, as hosts, surprisingly moved past Australia 3-2 in the World Group Play-offs last July to earn a slot in the elite group for the first time in many years.

The Thai squad will feature Tamarine Tanasugarn as key player and Suchanan Viratprasert, Napaporn Tongsalee and Monthinee Tangphong, ranked second to fourth in the country.

While Thailand will field an A squad, the visitors will arrive without ace player Kalorina Sprem, the No 17 in the world. Croat No 2 Jelena Kostanic, ranked 35th, will spearhead the team, which also includes Ivana Abramovic (No 231), Darija Jurak (No 333) and Anna Vrijic (No 353).

“Now we are among the top 16 teams in the world group. So our next goal is to win the tie and be in the top eight,’’ Suwat said.

Officially confirmed, no Sprem in Thailand :(

Sprem to miss Thai clash

TOR CHITTINAND

The kingdom's Fed Cup team received some good news yesterday after it was announced Karolina Sprem, ranked 19th in the world, would not be in the Croatian team which plays Thailand in Phuket next month.

Thailand qualified for the World Group of the Fed Cup after upsetting Australia last year. The match against Croatia will be held April 23-24.

Secretary general of the Lawn Tennis Association of Thailand (LTAT), Adm Bannawit Kengrieng said Sprem's absence gave Thailand a real chance of beating Croatia.

However, Croatia still have Jelena Kostanic, ranked 36 in the world, while Thailand's top player, Tamarine Tansaguarn, has slipped to 67th place.

The event will be held at a temporary outdoor court on Patong beach in Phuket as part of the government's policy to boost the province after the tsunami disaster.

Adm Bannawit said the Thai team would travel to Phuket two weeks before the event ''to get used to the weather. I don't want to be like the Davis Cup where we lost to Pakistan,'' he said.

Vittaya Sumrej, Thailand Fed Cup team captain, warned that Croatia would still be tough opposition despite the absence of Sprem. ''We must not underestimate them,'' he said.

CROATIA

Jelena Kostanic (36) Ivana Abramovic (225), Darija Jurak (332) and Ivana Lisjak (355).

THAILAND

Tamarine Tanasugarn (67), Suchanan Viratprasert (198), Napaporn Tongsalee (309) and Monthinee Tangpong (359).

Draw Made in Thailand

The draw for the Thailand v Croatia World Group II tie in Phuket has been made, and is as follows:

Tamarine Tanasugarn (THA) v Sanda Mamic (CRO)
Suchanun Viratprasert (THA) v Jelena Kostanic (CRO)
Tamarine Tanasugarn (THA) v Jelena Kostanic (CRO)
Suchanun Viratprasert (THA) v Sanda Mamic (CRO)
Montinee Tangphong/Napaporn Tongsalee (THA) v Jelena Kostanic/Sanda Mamic (CRO)

Thailand’s first foray into the elite sixteen nations that have constituted Fed Cup’s World Group since 1995 was given a boost before today’s draw with the news that Croatia’s leading player, Karolina Sprem will miss the tie with a viral complaint.

Croatia is still the favourite on paper but the contest should now be a good deal closer than expected, particularly as the conditions – likely to reach 35 degrees over the weekend, and swelteringly hot as the draw was made at the Kata Beach Resort, Phuket today – and home advantage will also favour the Thais. Furthermore, none of the singles players have ever met each other, adding a little to the uncertainty.

The key to the whole tie could lie in Saturday’s first rubber where crowd favourite Tanasugarn, now 27, will hope that a vociferous 4,000 crowd can carry her to victory against Croatian No.2 Sanda Mamic, who will be making her Fed Cup singles debut. The Thai veteran has been steadily dropping down the rankings after some disappointing results, but Mamic has also suffered some indifferent form so far in 2005. The 20-year-old has failed to qualify in four out of five attempts at various WTA Tour events, after a very successful 2004 which saw her rank in the top 100.

Kostanic, who has won 7 of 15 Fed Cup singles rubbers, should comfortably account for Thai No.2 Suchanun Viratprasert in the day’s second rubber but will take nothing for granted given the her opponent’s defeat of Australian Nicole Pratt in her last Fed Cup outing. Prior to reaching the last 16 in Charleston, SC, USA last week, the Croatian No.1 had only won one of her last seven matches, so she will be hoping that she can translate last week’s form from green clay to Rebound Ace. Viratprasert, for her part, has been playing largely on the ITF Women’s Circuit and has a 5-8 win/loss record for 2005.

Sunday’s opening rubber between Tanasugarn and Kostanic will again be crucial. The two players are less than 20 places apart in the latest rankings and this is probably the most difficult match to predict. Tanasugarn’s impressive Fed Cup singles record (23-7) is another plus point for the hosts.

Viratprasert’s greater Fed Cup experience will also be an advantage but Mamic is ranked over 100 places above her so this will be another point that Croatia is counting on.

The doubles rubber will, as ever, round out the tie, and could just decide who goes forward to the World Group I Play-offs in July, and who must face the World Group II Play-offs. At present the Thai Nos 3 and 4, Montinee Tangphong and Napaporn Tongsalee are due to face Kostanic and Mamic, though these nominations can be changed upon completion of the fourth singles rubber.

Thailand won all five of their Fed Cup ties in 2004 qualifying for the World Group Play-Offs and then stunning Australia in Bangkapi while Croatia won a play-off in Brazil to extend its stay in World Group to nine years. The two nations have never before met in Fed Cup and none of the singles players have ever played each other.

Live scoring, as well as news and results, will be abailable over the wekeend from this and all sven other World Group I and II ties.

Tammy holding the key to Thai chances
Phuket heat could play a big role

TOR CHITTINAND

Phuket _ Thailand are relying on a good start by Tamarine Tanasugarn in the opening match against Sanda Mamic to give them a chance of defeating Croatia in the Fed Cup World Group II match which begins this morning at Patong beach.

The match will be shown live on UBC Supersport and Channel 11 at 11 am.

Deputy president of the Lawn Tennis Association of Thailand (LTAT), Sathien Monkongthum said Tamarine's match is crucial.

``If Tamarine gives us a good start it will be a good day. But if she loses it will be very difficult,'' Sathien said.



Croatian team captain, Goran Prpic was quite confident about his team's chances.

``Thailand will have to play at 100% to beat us,'' he said.

He also believed the absence of Croatia's top player Karolina Sprem from the team would not cause a problem.

``We still have two players who can play as good as Sprem,'' said Prpic. ``We are confident coming here and the players will try their best to win.''





The Thai players trained on the court yesterday. The LTAT has spent more than 1 million baht building a makeshift stadium for up to 4,000 spectators a





Team captain Vittaya Sumrej said all the Thai players were looking forward to the action.



Suchanan will take on Jelena Kostanic in the second singles today while Napaporn Tongsalee and Monthinee Tangphong will be in action in tomorrow's doubles.





Vittaya admitted the heat was bit of a problem although it should affect the Croatian players more than the Thais. ``We should have the edge over Croatia because of the weather,'' he said.



Despite their confidence the Thai team were concerned over facing left-handed players. ``We have been working on the return of serve,'' he said.



Tamarine siad yesterday she was fit and ready but admitted it wouldn't be easy.

``Mamic is left handed which is really tough for me. Left handed players have more weapons than right handers, so we will have to be careful.''



This is the first time Thailand and Croatia have met.

Tamarine Tanasugarn (THA) v Sanda Mamic (CRO) at 11 am.

yeah it's confidence for her. when she wins a match, she goes on to do well - until she gets a top flight player. she just needs to settle down on a bit. i hope tudor works out her serve %/double faults. she'd be killer if she could get it all together.

Logic would tell you...

Put top doubles player and big match player Tamarine Tanasuagrn in doubles.
And put an in-form and increadibly tenacious Viratprasert in doubles.

The other two and simply not at the same level.
I hope the Thai's think this one through.... they do not have a 'big match' doubles team on. They need Tamarine and Suchie.
