Georges Goven is one of the best french coach, he had already been the coach of Tauziat, Dechy, Tati, Amelie and Mary

Impossible !

Mauresmo will play, for sure, at least the first day, and the second will be Dechy, Mary or Tatiana !

Ca dépendra surement des matchs d'entraînement, et de la forme affichée durant la semaine de préparation ... Au pire, Mary devrait etre alignée en double, double qui pourrait être retransmis, même si non décisif, par sport+ :bounce:

I still think that on clay Mauresmo and Pierce are the obvious choice for singles. Dechy is good on it, but not as good as the first two.

Why would Austria choose clay? That seems like suicide to me.

They said in wtatour.com that Mauresmo and Dechy will play singles...I can't understand it but it is ok...Mary is soooo much better than Nathalie. Well I hope that Mary will play singles against more dengerous players in other fase of Fed Cup. Austria will be easy for France...I hope that Mary plays doubles at least...

Wizzy Maryfan
Apr 20th, 2005, 07:19 AM
It's not really a surprise !

Goven is new and he doesn't want to take risks so, as a stupid man, he decides to see who's the best ranked ...

But, i don't know how wtatour can know who'll play !

They have probably anticipated, because in France, nothing has been written :confused:

:rolleyes:

Well...its a great team...its a shame that Mary won't play...but at least she'll still be in the team and perhaps she'll play doubles...:worship:

Anyway...France is going to ROCK whenever Mary's around...!!!:bounce: :bounce:

Go Mary....:bounce: :bounce:

Lets GO the French ladies...!!!!!:bounce: :bounce:

Maybe it'll be better for Mary to not play and rest before Berlin and Rome. Whoever will play there will be no match for France. Austrian team is so poor. They've had Schett some time ago but now they don't have any chances against France.

LafandeMary
Apr 20th, 2005, 09:34 AM
Georges Goven said he will announce the singles players on thursday so like Wizzy said, wtatour must have anticipated!
So there is still a chance to see Mary playing, she plays so better than Dechy!

Mark Spruce
Apr 20th, 2005, 12:28 PM
Well if Mary does not play singles doubles at lease please.

But as said we will have to wait unil tommorow too see what happens

I will be disapointed if Mary doesn't play but at least this year "the fed cup" is playing like in the past and like the "davis cup".

This time the final will not take place in Russia for sure !!

Mark Spruce
Apr 20th, 2005, 07:14 PM
Hi saby,

great to see you posting again. Yeah it will be much better with crowds etc with it not being in Russia.

How does choosing where the final will be. I am not to sure how it words as I do not follow the davies cup.

Mark

saby
Apr 20th, 2005, 08:47 PM
it depend on who is going to be qualify for the final

It's like Austria vs France, we are going to play in Austria because our last meeting in fed cup was in 1987 and it was in france, it's the same for the final...

Yes and with this system, whoever France will play in 1/2 final and final, it will be in France :bounce:

Mark Spruce
Apr 21st, 2005, 04:12 PM
Oh that you so much for explaining. And also with France they are number on Fed Cup team in ranking and that helps towards where they play.

I will have a look at the FED site and see what they have for the rules etc..

So hopefully France will get that far, and with it being in France they crowd will help. Where abouts at RG ??

RG, I don't think for a semi it's too big, I hope Nïmes in the "Arena" I like this place.

I suppose the final will take place in Nice so I don't think there will be something in Nimes

We still don't know who will play singles, it's so long to wait!

Yes there was a davis cup match at roland garros, France/USA, but I think it will be too big for the Fed Cup team...

Here is the Austria/France schedule:

Yvonne Meusberger (AUT) v Nathalie Dechy (FRA)
Tamira Paszek (AUT) v Amelie Mauresmo (FRA)
Yvonne Meusberger (AUT) v Amelie Mauresmo (FRA)
Tamira Paszek (AUT) v Nathalie Dechy (FRA)
Sandra Klemenschits/Yvonne Meusberger (AUT) v Mary Pierce/Virginie Razzano (FRA)

Mary just plays doubles :rolleyes: :mad:

Mark
Not as I remember !!

Apparenlty Amélie and Nathalie are going to play single because they both didn't start her clay season.

Mary is tired because she did a 3 days trip before to arrive in Austria, She was in charleston, went to Sarasota, Detroit, Paris, Franckfort and arrived like the "french team" said somewhere in Austria !!!

On the newspaper they said that at the airport they lost Mary's luggages and she could have them the day after she arrived in Austria.

Mark Spruce
Apr 22nd, 2005, 12:43 PM
Hi Saby,

Thanks for the news. Here is the full draw for the match.

I still wish Mary was playing singles, but hopefully her France's next match. But I am glad that Mary is playing. I suppose all of her equipment would be lost with the luggage, and playing with replacement stuff in singles not so good.

justine is right !

France played USA a few years ago in French but don't dream, it's impossible for the girl, because fed cup is not as popular as Davis Cup !

:sad:

Mary has a little pain at one of her leg, so that is why she's not playing today. (journalists were talking about it today on tv)

Mark Spruce
Apr 23rd, 2005, 03:28 PM
Oh and the tie is 1-1 at the moment. Maybe the doubles match will be the decider.

Thanks Saby for letting me know the news of Mary

Gover said after first day :
"En Fed Cup on a la possibilité d'aligner une joueuse jusqu'à un quart d'heure du match. Pour le moment, on reste sur la même base d'équipe, c'est-à-dire que c'est Virginie qui joue. Mary (Pierce, qui doit jouer en double) a un mollet plus que douloureux. C'est hier dans la matinée lors de la séance de vitesse que cette douleur s'est réveillée. On va voir comment elle sera demain. Une contracture ça passe."
All is possible for a single match tomorrow...

Apr 24th, 2005, 11:28 AM
In fact Mary won't play today. No single match and no Double match she's still injured.

When I logged on I saw it 1-0 to Austria I nearlly fell off my chair.
