OMG, :sad: :sad: :sad: I new it, I knew that stupid bitch Jecmenica was going to do something stupid :mad: , I predicted that she was going to put out of form crappy timotic to play singles :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: , and she did. NOW Serbia does not stand a chance what's so ever, it's all over. Captin is to blame, next year Nenad Zimonjic or some male person should lead a much stronger team.

Ahh, well praise Jankovic for playing :worship: , she definetly knew the team wasn't gonna reach the play-offs she just didn't want serbia to be relagated further down.

Two people to blame for the early exit of Serbia and Montenegro
Ana Ivanovic :fiery: and Tatjana Jecmenica (seriously this women knows shit about tennis, somebody fire her ass :o )
I think JJ should have been a playing captain like Bulgaria.

Ana Timotic is a joke, to win only a game to out-of-form Pisnik. Go to hell Jecmenica why didn't you put Jovanovic to play! She could atleast win few game more. Bye,bye Serbia. I don't see a point of this.There is no way Ana and Jelena will play next year for a team that is in EA G1!

OMG Jelena that was amazing, I think that your biggest win this year after losing the first set. WOW :worship: . She must be filled with patriotism :)

Unfortunately, her effeorts will come to end (I know I'm so pesimistic :lol: )
I just don't see Jankovic and Zaric beating the strong experienced doubles team of srebotnic and krizan.

But we'll see.
C'mon Serbia , Jelena Jankovic might turn out to be like Myskina of 2004, wher she pulled of most of the victories for Russia.

Stupid Jecmenica for not giving Jovanovic a go vs. Pisnik. Did she really think the girl who lost 6-0 6-0 to Birnerova will be some challenge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Resign Tatjana, and keep doing what uou have been doing for last 6 years- DONT INVOLVE IN TENNIS!!!!!!!!!!!

I know, Jecmenica is actually lost her mind!! She should've got Jovanovic to play!!! Is she "saving" her for GB, cos if she is, that's so crazy, cos Serbia should beat GB anyway!

Tina's yesterday's post match statement:

"Zelo sem zadovoljna z igro. Opazila sem sicer, da mi manjka nekaj eksplozivnosti in fizične vzdržljivosti, toda roka mi še vedno odlično služi. Le glava me boli za znoret, saj so bolečine v vratu vseskozi prisotne,"

"I'm happy with my game. I noticed that I'm missing some of the stamina and momentum, but my arm is still serving me well. Only my head hurts like crazy because the pains in the neck are present constantly."

Nothing published for today, we'll most likely know after all the matches are played.

Isrealis are my faves after Serbia, I love Shahar :hearts: ever since she won Aus open juniors, when I saw her wraped in Israeli flag: I was like wow that is so nice for the struggling country and its people, she'll definitely be top 5 one day. Tzipora Obziler, who cannot like that name :lol: , she seems realy down to earth and sweet especially in her interview after losing a tight match to Justine at US open.

In the doubles will play Magie and Sesil.Magie(captain) decide to use this match to practise.I`m not very happy coz i wonna Tsveti to play some matches in the Fed Cup but...Magie is the captain.

Tsveti isn't experienced in doubles and hasn't played much of it. I am sure Maggie will let Tsveti play one singles tommorow, because they should be through with another 3-0 win. Penkova couldn't expect to play at all. :)

I still wonder why she needs doubles practise though since she doesn't like to play much doubles anymore.

For Slovenia V SCG the results were up the quickest at Slovenian site http://sportal.siol.net/default.asp?site_id=1006 if somebody is interested. It's only in Slovenian, but the basic information is very obvious.

The doubles should start by now, but I won't be here to see the result :( ... Again, good luck to Katarina and Tina; they need it, because the Serbians are good players.

Oh, I see. Surprising to me since Maleeva said she wants to focuse on singles. Hope Sesil improved her net game then.
Did they ever play a singles match against each other?

Luxembourg's only chance to reach the play off is defeating the Netherlands with 3:0 and this is nearly impossible. :rolleyes: (And I guess that Sweden will beat Poland, thus the w/l matches record will count)

at least win the remaining matches, and i hope this proves a lesson to the israeli squad that doubles is NOT made of the best singles players.
savransky/smashnova could have been a better pair.

The reason Tzipi/Shahar gave to the fact that they didn't play doubles all this time is that their ranking wasn't high enough to enter the draws in the tournies they entered

There is two scenarios:

Do you think she can beat such an experienced top-30 player who has been so consistent this year and didn't lose to a player below 29 (Hantuchova) except Stosur (which was in Australia where she is certainly on that level)? I think Maleeva in two or three sets.

Well since I wanted to know what would be the possible scenario's in group B I did some calculations beforehand.
At the moment this is the top-3 after 2 rounds:

Ties Matches Sets
Netherlands 2-0 5-1 11-3
Sweden 1-1 3-3 7-8
Luxembourg 1-1 3-3 8-7

As written before:
1) if Netherlands wins against Luxembourg, the Netherlands go through.
2) if Luxembourg wins against Netherlands and Poland beats Sweden, Luxembourg goes through
3) if Luxembourg wins against Netherlands, and Sweden beats Poland, you have the following 4 scenario's:

A)
Luxembourg bt. Netherlands 3-0
And Sweden bt. Poland 3-0
Then Luxembourg goes through
Sweden/Luxembourg tied at 6-3 matches.. but
Luxembourg has 14 sets won and Sweden 13 sets

B)
Luxembourg bt. Netherlands 3-0
And Sweden bt. Poland 2-1
Then Luxembourg go through, because they are the only one with 6 matches won.

C)
Luxembourg bt. Netherlands 2-1
And Sweden bt. Poland 3-0
Then either Sweden or Netherlands go through

Sweden can only go through if... Netherlands wins 1 3-setter and loses 2 2-setters, and Sweden doesn't lose a set, and then the total games won should decide.
Netherlands worst case 2-5 --> 13-8 in sets
Sweden best case 6-0 --> 13-8 in sets --> have to calculate with games.
Calculating games.......
Games won/lost Netherlands:
37-16
42-34
Total: 79-50
Games won/lost Sweden:
34-42
41-29
Total: 75-71
So yes all is possible there.... either team could have the most games won. But as you can see only a very very slim chance for Sweden to still go through.

D)
Luxembourg bt. Netherlands 2-1
And Sweden bt. Poland 2-1
Then Netherlands go through, they are the only one with 6 matches won.

:yawn: :zzz: I am gonna take a break now.

Well, I'd say it's about time for a break-through for Krajicek, why not against Maleeva? She has the potential, it's only a matter of time before she starts winning matches against players like Maleeva.
I'm not saying she will win, but she might.

Latest Results: Europe/Africa Zone Group I

Venue: Club Ali Bey Manavgat, Antalya, Turkey. Dates: 20-23 April Surface: Red Clay, Outdoor

The sixteen competing nations have been drawn into four pools of four teams. Pool winners play against each other for two places in the World Group II Play-Offs in July. Teams finishing 4th in their pool will play off to decide which two teams are relegated to Europe/Africa Zone Group II in 2006. Play begins at 0700 GMT every day. Results will be available here on a daily basis.

Pool A: Bulgaria, Hungary, South Africa, Estonia
Pool B: Luxembourg, Netherlands, Sweden, Poland
Pool C: Slovenia, Serbia & Montenegro, Great Britain, Denmark
Pool D: Israel, Ukraine, Belarus, Greece.

Thursday 21 April
Bulgaria, Slovenia and Belarus booked their places in Saturday’s play-offs, which determine which two teams advance to the World Group II Play-offs in July, after winning their second ties of the week. The remaining place could go to Sweden, the Netherlands or Luxembourg depending on the outcome of Friday’s ties.

Top seeds Bulgaria, whose singles players are both ranked inside the top 100, was the only team to secure victory after the singles rubbers today as Sesil Karatantcheva and Magdalena Maleeva dismissed their Hungarian opponents, Agnes Szavay and Zsofia Gubacsi respectively.

Slovenia appeared to be cruising to victory after No.2 Tina Pisnik crushed her Serbian & Montenegran counterpart, Ana Timotic, 60 61 and Katarina Srebotnik took the first set 6-1 against Jelena Jankovic. However, Jankovic then showed why she has been ranked inside the top 20 this year, clawing her way back into the match and hanging on for a 16 64 86 victory in just over two hours 30 minutes to level the tie. The experienced duo of Srebotnik and Tina Krizan were quick off the mark again for Slovenia in the deciding doubles and despite a rally from Jankovic and Dragana Zaric, they held strong for a 60 76(6) triumph.

Viktoria Azarenka again played a big part in Belarus’ success against the Ukraine, winning both rubbers in which she played. She thrashed her former ITF Development teammate, Katarina Bondarenko, 62 61 in the opening singles and renewed her successful partnership with Tatiana Poutchek in the deciding doubles, which Belarus took 63 60.

In Pool B, Sweden came very close to securing top spot in the pool when Johanna Larsson finally got the better of Dutch veteran Brenda Schultz-McCarthy 75 36 63 to put Sweden ahead. ITF Junior World Champion, Michaella Krajicek levelled the tie with a quick victory over Hanna Nooni and then successfully teamed up with Schultz-McCarthy in a tight doubles match against Nooni and Sofia Arvidsson in which the Dutch team finally prevailed 46 64 64. This represents Schultz-Mc Carthy’s first professional tennis activity for just under six years! Meanwhile, Luxembourg got their campaign back on track after its opening day defeat to Sweden with a 2-1 victory over Poland, although Claudine Schaul had to battle for over two hours to subdue Poland’s Karolina Kosinska to clinch victory

Well, I'd say it's about time for a break-through for Krajicek, why not against Maleeva? She has the potential, it's only a matter of time before she starts winning matches against players like Maleeva.
I'm not saying she will win, but she might.

Someone else underestimating Maggie...... Fans are used to it.... Even Sophie Ferguson fans said she should beat Maggie because Maggie is not good... Everybody underestimates her.. But oh well, she can live with that! :)
