No, she wasn't better in Germany at least. Romana was fighting a lot more and played solid.

They are playing Romana over Ayu. How tacky is that Mrs Martina? :rolleyes:. Why bother to have Ayu on the team.

Romana is a has-been player and prolly will retire in like what? 2 years? Ayu is an upcoming player that needs experience to play more ties for Fed Cup. Against ALG, that was her first Fed Cup match and she was bound to be nervous and played badly. And it was on clay, which isn't Ayu's thing.

Ayu has been used as a filler just because she's not under Indonesian Federation's. That's just :retard:.

I actually want to see Ayu on the court, but this time I agree with the team's (or Martina's?) decision to have Romana as a second player. To be honest, Romana is better than Ayu NOW, especially for this stage of Fed Cup competition. :)

This is a must-win encounter for Indonesia if we don't want to play zonal playoffs with Asia Oceania teams who are much more experienced and have better players than Puerto Rico.

The Southeastern zone is predicted to have unstable climate in the weekend. Rain could occur up to an extremely humid atmosphere, the reason why the physical training conditions will be crucial.

Nah, neither Romana nor Ayu are expected to win me thinks. It's all in Wynne's hand and the double, so by playing Ayu would be a great experience for her since we need her in the future.

Prakusya vs Brandi is going to be hell of the match. This is the most crucial match for the tie.

SALINAS - Sol extenuante, 104 grados de temperatura a nivel de cancha y errores no forzados, acabaron con el juego de Kristina Brandi en el primer sencillo de ayer de este 'playoff' de Copa Fed.
Brandi cayó 6-4 y 6-2 contra Wynne Prakusya, quien lució fresca al punto de que corrió luego del partido, y se ayudó realizando un juego limpio. Esto le dio ventaja al equipo de Indonesia 2-1 en la serie, ya que el único partido que había ganado Puerto Rico fue el primero del sábado a manos de Brandi.

“Fue una sorpresa para mí porque sé que es una jugadora que no comete muchos errores. Sé también que tenía mucha presión. Lo que hice fue hacerla jugar y no cometer muchos errores”, dijo Prakusya, quien ganó ambos sencillos del 'playoff'. El sábado derrotó en dos sets a la segunda raqueta boricua Vilmarie Castellví.

Tiros largos y abiertos marcaron el partido de Brandi, quien falló por mucho la línea de fondo y las laterales y nunca pudo encontrarle las medidas a la cancha del Albergue Olímpico.

Luego del partido, Brandi dijo que se sentía mal desde la mañana de ayer. Detalló que tenía calambres estomacales, provocados probablemente por el calor cuando jugó a más de 100 grados de temperatura. Agregó que tomó un medicamento antes del encuentro.

“Estoy defraudada porque sucedió en este momento. Sé que todo el mundo estaba contando conmigo”, sostuvo luego en conferencia de prensa.

En el juego, Brandi cayó atrás rápidamente contra Prakusya, quien le rompió el segundo servicio para el 2-1. En ese juego, Brandi cometió tres errores no forzados. En el set anterior cometió otros cuatro errores no forzados.

Una vez perdió la ventaja, Prakusya se despegó rápido. En 5-2, las oportunidades de Brandi parecían imposibles. Pero batalló hasta un 4-5, logrando disminuir los errores.

“Me decía 'vamos, que puedes salir de esto', y me sentí mejor, pero ya mi juego iba hacia abajo. Al final me caí completamente”, aceptó Brandi.

Prakusya le cortó el vuelo.

“Estaba perdiendo la concentración y ella (Brandi) estaba haciendo tremendos tiros. Lo que me dije es que tenía que mantenerme positiva”, dijo Prakusya.

La situación continuó en el segundo set. Prakusya le rompió el primer servicio a Brandi y se fue hasta tener ventaja de 4-0, totalmente inalcanzable para una Brandi que no tenía aire.
En los descansos, Brandi lucía desgastada.

Buscó una toalla mojada y se la colocó en la nuca. De cerca tenía al fisiatra William Micheo.

Brandi había dicho anteayer que el calor fue factor en su primer juego.

Luego de ganar el séptimo juego del segundo set, con el que se acercó 2-5, Brandi cogió un tiempo médico y se fue al camerino durante cinco minutos.

Fue atendida por Micheo con síntomas de deshidratación.

Al regreso, lo más que pudo lograr Brandi fue un 'deuce' antes de perder.

Puerto Rico cayó 1-2 en el 'playoff' con la derrota de Brandi. Luego quedaba por jugar un juego sencillo y uno de dobles.

Goodbye World Group Dream

SALINAS - Devastating sun, 104 degrees of temperature at court surface and unforced errors, ended the game of Kristina Brandi in the first single match of the Fed Cup playoff yesterday.

Brandi fell 4-6 and 2-6 against Wynne Prakusya, who appeared fresh with the point that ran fast in the match, and helped her making a fair play. This gave an advantage to the Indonesian team 2-1 in total, because Puerto Rico had only won the first party of the Saturday match by the hands of Brandi.

“It is a surprise to me because she is a player who does not commit many errors. She also had so much pressure. What I did was to play and not commit many errors”, said Prakusya, who won all single parties of the playoff. In Saturday she won in two sets against the second player Vilmarie Castellví.

Long and opened shots marked the party of Brandi, who stayed at the base line and the side ones and she could never come up with the measures of the court of Albergue Olímpico.

Soon after the match, Brandi said that she felt bad from yesterday morning. To give the detail she had stomach cramps, probably caused by the heat when played under 100 degrees of temperature. That’s why she took a medicine before the encounter.

“Still disappointed because it happen at this moment. It beacuse everybody was counting on me”, she explained earlier in the press conference.

In the game, Brandi fell in speed behind Prakusya, who broke the second service for 2-1. In that game, Brandi commmitted three unforced errors. In the previous set committed four other unforced errors.

Once she took the advantage, Prakusya flew rapidly. In 5-2, the opportunities of Brandi seemed impossible. But she battled until a 4-5, managing to diminish the errors.

“I said 'come on, you can leave this, and I felt better, but my game already went downwards. In the end I fell completely”, accepted Brandi.

Prakusya shorten her flight.

“I was losing concentration and she (Brandi) was making tremendous shots. What I said is that I have to stay positive”, Prakusya said.
The situation continued in the second set. Prakusya broke the first service of Brandi and went through until having advantage of 4-0, totally unattainable one for Brandi who could not take a breath.
In the rests, Brandi was worn out.

Took a wet towel and put it in the neck. Closely held the phycician William Micheo.

Brandi had said the day before yesterday that the heat was the factor in her first game.

After gaining the seventh game of the second set, to bring to 2-5, Brandi took a medical time and went to the dressing room for five minutes.

She was taken care of by Micheo for a symptomp of dehidration.
When returned, the most Brandi could obtain was a deuce before losing.

Puerto Rico was down 1-2 in the playoff by the defeat of Brandi. Afterwards there were a single match and one doubles to play.

I really don't know how a Chinese team would defeat a fully charged Japanese team with Ai (who's age isn't a factor at all, she's just had an injury this year), Shinobu (Who is not at all inconsistent anymore), Akiko (who plays unbelievably well in Fed Cup), and either Rika (A great doubles player), Saori, AIko or a host of others. I think japan has the strongest potential team, that is if all their top players play.
