Well Brasil is not a bad team at all, and Colombia with Castano is no piece of cake either, as a matter of fact I think this is a way stronger group than last year, I hope my dear Mexicans fare OK against Cuba, Uruguay and Chile to stay on this group for next year. :rolleyes:

I also think Canada and Puerto Rico will face in the finals again this year. I wonder who they'll make play in the singles. I guess Aleks/Brandi and Steph/Vilmarie....I want the opposite though, so I can cheer for Steph and Vil at the same time ;)

Who do you think should and will play the doubles for Canada?

I think the best would be Steph/Sharon, but I'm not sure if Simpson will make Sharon play in such an important match if it is needed. I think it will be Mara/Steph. They love Aleks so they could easily put her in the doubles match also, though I don't think she deserves to be there. She doesn't like doubles and isn't the best doubles player, she shows it not playing any doubles in her tournaments.

It's going to be a great experience for Steph to finally play in some important Fed Cup rubbers!The only one she played was against Casanova and we agree it wasn't the same league at all!

Will be tough, simply because:

1. Daniela Muñoz will be first player, and will probably give a great fight but won't beat Wozniak, Brandi or Alves.

2. Melissa Torres??? She is playing exhibitions against Novotna instead of playing real tournaments... :rolleyes:

3. Erika Clarke... :help: @ CLAY

4. Lorena Villalobos, 0 experience on Fed Cup.

And the four of them with the exception of Villalobos have much better results usually on hardcourts. Only chance is that something like 2 years ago happens, of Brandi getting injured and suddenly Daniela beating Vilmarie, but seems tough ;)!



And I agree Brazil is a tough team, and anyways Canada always have trouble with them.

Semifinalists, Canada, Puerto Rico, Brazil and someone.

Go Mex, stay there until Valeria Pulido becomes good.

Canada and Brazil have played so much in the past years. Yes Canada struggled, mostly cause of Alves most of the time, but they always prevailed, and I think this year they will win it kinda easily. Mara always had tough matches against Alves, but Aleks or Steph should be able to get the two singles win.

Canada Puerto-Rico would be great this year again. What a thriller it was last year! Canada having mps in both matches :sad: I expect the same to happen this year, I'm giving Puerto Rico a slight edge again, but I think canada's doubles could actually be better if it gets 1-1!

Colombia only has Castano so at worst, Canada wins 2-1.. Aleks played her two years ago as a junior in Colombia and lost 7-6, 6-3.. she could win..

Stephanie killed Castano, yes it was on hard, but it still was 6-1 6-2. So who knows.

Go Canada!

I will second that.

It's too bad there is no chance it will be shown on TV here. I don't think Fed Cup is ever shown on TV in Canada. We barely get any WTA tourny's as it is.

¤CharlDa¤
Apr 8th, 2006, 10:14 PM
Even when Canada faced SUI in Montreal we didn't get to see it on tv. Seeing it live was way better for me, but I still would ahve liked to see how it went on tv.

Would it be different, do you think, if Canada was in the World Group? I somehow think there would still be no coverage though - even if it was taking place on home soil.

¤CharlDa¤
Apr 9th, 2006, 03:29 AM
Maybe if it would be in World Group, but so far we are not close to be there yet. I think we could reach it in the future as our team is one of the youngest (even Mara is like only 23 soon to be 24), Steph at 19, Aleks 18 and Sharon at 15. So we could have them all for at least 8 years and who knows, maybe some other young incredible talents will come out of nowhere by then!

myxomatosis
Apr 9th, 2006, 07:04 PM
Yeah it's great that our team is so young. It means they have a lot of years ahead of them to develop and garner experience. It amazes me that Maureen Drake is still out there on the tour. Now that is longevity!

¤CharlDa¤
Apr 9th, 2006, 08:30 PM
I've heard Steph will most likely play the singles as well as the doubles :) Not very surprising, I'm looking forward to whom she will play with in dubs!

I think Pelletier would be the best choice as Stephanie's partner. She's got a lot of doubles experience and has an ITF doubles win this year. Let Wozniak be the second singles player. :cool:
That does leave Fichman as the odd one out though.

Ryan
Apr 12th, 2006, 10:10 PM
I agree with Pelletier playing dubs with Steph, definately the best combo. I think they should give the dead rubbers to Sharon, and maybe Marie-Eve if she doesn't get to play much. I think Canada could play all 4 players in the singles and Steph/M-E in dubs and still beat everyone except Puerto Rico. I think they could easily beat them this year with Aleks and Steph in singles, Brandi and Castellvi haven't been good this year.

~CANUCK~
Apr 13th, 2006, 06:39 PM
Are you guys kidding? M-E is a horrible dubs player. Sharon would be the much better choice imo.

Ryan
Apr 13th, 2006, 09:26 PM
I thought M-E had been playing well the past few years in doubles, although I admit I haven't been playing close attention. Is Sharon really better? That'd be nice if she is, it would pretty much guarantee her a spot on Fed Cup every year.

¤CharlDa¤
Apr 13th, 2006, 10:42 PM
Marie-Eve is a decent doubles player, but she is more a singles player playing in doubles. She didn't have the much success except when she played with great doubles players. On the other hand, I saw in Steph and Sharon the ability to become good and even great doubles player as they don't rely on singles but more on their anticipation.

I do think Sharon will become a better doubles player than Marie-Eve. But I'm still wondering if she is ready already to play it. Best thing would really be to make Steph and Sharon play together in the useless rubbers so they see how it goes. Cause doubles is also about chemistry. Mara and Steph seem to like playing with each other but I don't see any spark when Steph plays with Aleks. It'll be interesting. I asked steph about who she thinks she will play with and she doesn't even have a lil idea.

Apr 13th, 2006, 10:55 PM
Well since we're less than a week away, I guess we'll all (including Steph! :lol: ) find out soon enough who's going to be playing what.
Such intrigue!

Exciting isn't it? Well it's a good sign about tennis in canada. We don't know who will be chosen, which means more than 2 players are performing :D

;) It wasn't serious enough for her to withdraw in the past month or so. I guess she'll be ok for one more week in Colombia.

Alek
Apr 15th, 2006, 11:42 AM
According to an article, its already sure that for Mexico, Daniela Muñoz & Melissa Torres will be the singles players. And in doubles Erika Clarke will be playing with who best looks at the moment.

Oscar Ortiz the captain, knows how tough will be to do good here ;) (glad he is realisitc :p)

Come on MEXICO!

for me the better doubles team is mara/steph...but i thiink that it will be intersting to putt steph/sharon against the less important team...if is possible. :rolleyes: .soo gooo canada :bounce: ..and with a virus or not..aleks will kick some ass :devil:

You are such a critical person! You have no open mind. You never know what can happen and that is why the best personality of a human being is to be open in life. It's not who loves who, it's what makes the most sense. If Aleks doesn't play dubs, it's no big deal but don't say she doesn't like dubs because you just don't know her and your not her blood. Everyone lives their career differently. It's ok once in a while for you to accept other players doing good and acknowledge their success.

Klaudia
Apr 17th, 2006, 02:25 PM
Even though he might be right, he always criticizes her and all that, it's because one time, he was Aleks' number one fan and he started to really get too close to her life and she told him to leave her alone and he got freaken mad and now, he writes negative stuff on her on all the chance he gets. He tries to get the girls personal e-mail and just consistently disturb them. That is why I am tired of it and I decided to write my opinion. I do not like people writing crap about my sister. I am sure you wouldn't want anyone to say crap about your relatives no matter what. First of all, Canada needs more better players anyway on all levels.

OMG you clearly have no idea of what happened. First of all, I never was Aleks' number one fan and never had the goal to be. I really liked her since the first time I saw her and I thought she had everything to become a great talent, which I still think she does. As for getting close in her life, if exchanging chats on like Congrats on your win and she tells me thanks, is getting too close for you, then I'm not the one with not an open mind. As for the girls email, I got Aleks' email from Steph. If she gets online and I have her email, I talk to her....BTW, that's the concept of MSN! :rolleyes: IF she didn't want to talk to me, she just had to stop it, which she did in a weird and mean way, but it is her choce and I'm fine about that. But I do care for players because of their attitude and not only their game and I certainly didn't like the attitude of Aleks and her entourage inthat situation, so I stopped to cheer for her for a while. But there is a huge limit between not cheering and bitching, what you think I'm doing. I said Aleks wasn't the player who should play for Canada in doubles, and I still think I am right. I even talked about Marie-Eve, who I adore, and her lack of doubles skills.

Ok, maybe I created the fact Aleks didn't like Doubles. But that's coming from the recent tournaments, where she didn't play one single doubles tourney. On the other hand, you also gave me intentions I didn't have about what I wrote here.

As for the part that I'm a freak trying to disturb them, I think that's the worst thing anybody told me of my life. I got pretty close with other players than Aleks and she is the only one who seemed to have been disturbed, and I talked to her once each 2-3 months :rolleyes: That is the meanest comment I've ever read here and if your goal was to make me feel bad, well congrats, you did girl!

You sound like a bit of a drama queen. The guy just expresses his opinion and it turns out he's not the biggest fan of your sister ? It's a free world, he can say what the hell he wants. If you have to resolve to insult and degrade him, maybe it means he's right in some parts of what he says. If your sister's attitude is the same as yours, i.e. not accepting criticism or any negative comment, I can see why he's not her biggest fan.

Sorry but don't try to feel sad for yourself because everything now, you are changing. I know a lot of people that can't stand you and you know them too but I won't say who they are. Whats important is that we all have faults and Aleks have faults like anyone else but it's not for your place to put her down like you do. And I don't care if you have a problem with her, beause you are just another person that never played pro so how can you know anything anyway. I am not afriad to speak my mind and I will because I have been there and done that. We all accept our faults but we like professional to give us advice and not from a guys like you. So if you know reasons of this or that in her career, that's sad because you don't. Like I said, you can favor who you want and even speak crap about Aleks or others but it will all come back to you. Obviously, you have no moral values. I think you should stay negative because that will definitely take you far in life........not.

Encouraging everyone at this Fed Cup is what counts right now. I will stay out of your way now that I had this built up for a while and it's all out. Nothing is wrong to view our opinions.

Well if you care about someone and your family and even anyone, you should still hope the best for them and nothing is wrong with that. So you don't hope the best for your family? I would hope so. Only three people disagree and that's not everyone in the world. My eyes are open if they wouldn't, I would be here :-) All I am saying is I think there's nothing wrong with viewing my own opinion now. The guy doesn't obvioulsy like her so who cares, he is just another person but I have the right to tell my opinion don't you think? I read all these comments on this website on anyone player, from Maria, to Navratilova and it's ok to read them but I mean people can be so rude. These girls all work hard and it's not easy to be where they are and I think we should give them some slack sometimes. Nothing is wrong with that. People call Mauresmo the Lesbo. I mean how mean is that. I just want to defend some of them and give them support because some don't get that.

With all due respect, I dont think you need to a br a pro to figure out plenty of things about pro tennis, and players themselves. The difference between being a pro player and being a regular player are execution, opportunity, money, and desire. But that doesnt mean that people who arent pros dont have an understanding of the game. I realize it is easy to look at things from the outside, because it always is, but sometimes that can be a good thing too. Richard Williams raised two world stars knowing next to nothing about tennis, and his daughters believed in what he was teaching them and instilling in him. If we all had the attitude that we shouldnt listen to anyone unless they have been there and done that, we would certainly be limiting ourselves more than we may think.

I understand that you dont want anyone saying anything negative about your sister, I would feel the same way if someone says anything about my sibling, but this is a public forum, and tennis at this level is also very public and its part of what comes with that. I dont think that anything said here was meant to be deliberately mean though, so you should try not to take it to heart so much, all of the Canadian posters here want the best for the Canadian girls, including CD :)

My bad temper tends to show when I read mean things about people who I think are nice people.

How can you know if I am not nice when all I want is for people to say nice things about others and not to chew them out. I am only hear to support not only my family member but also other players because I am also a fan of women's tennis but at least I try to give positive reinforcement for them. That is the same thing I wanted to prove that not always we know why and how the tennis players make their career decisions so we shouldn't come to a quick judgment about them. I am sure you care about your family or friend and would want the best for them even when sometimes yes, we need to hear negative to improve but when it's all year round from mostly one person, you kind a get tired of it and will want to view your opinion and I did.
All I want is good for all the girls out there that work hard in their careers. It's not our place to judge so fast! They work hard to be where they are and I think they need our support and not judgement. I was once there and would not trade places again because it's just hard. Plus you have all these fans and not fans like in this exemple so it's hard.

I agree with you totally and my dad did the same thing. Didn't know about tennis and he created the number one player in Canada and got her to number #3 in the world in juniors. So yes, many people aren't professionals but there's many that do not know much too. And I am not goign to take it to heart but I just thought it was my time to view my opinion too you know? We all have the right.

Well if you care about someone and your family and even anyone, you should still hope the best for them and nothing is wrong with that. So you don't hope the best for your family? I would hope so. Only three people disagree and that's not everyone in the world. My eyes are open if they wouldn't, I would be here :-) All I am saying is I think there's nothing wrong with viewing my own opinion now. The guy doesn't obvioulsy like her so who cares, he is just another person but I have the right to tell my opinion don't you think? I read all these comments on this website on anyone player, from Maria, to Navratilova and it's ok to read them but I mean people can be so rude. These girls all work hard and it's not easy to be where they are and I think we should give them some slack sometimes. Nothing is wrong with that. People call Mauresmo the Lesbo. I mean how mean is that. I just want to defend some of them and give them support because some don't get that.

As I said, I agree about everything you said here. People are incredibly rude all over this board and say very mean things towards players. Where I disagree is that you include me with those people. If you look closely, I never personnally attacked Aleks here. I may have questionned some of her choices, and questionned some of the choices made about her career, and I critiqued some of her tennis abilities (i.e. here about doubles), but I don't feel I EVER was mean to her like they are. Yes some of my comment were negative towards her as the tennis player on court and not as the person, but like every tennis player, Aleks' isn't perfect. I'm sure she knows that and works hard on everything she has to work on, but I still think I can comment on what I think those things should be. And like randy said, I might not have played the pro tour, but I've followed it for a while now. Peace :kiss:

Aleks does deserve the best. And she is determined to make it. So most likely she will. Too bad she had to lose fans on her way there. But for Canada I hope she does well :)

That is the least of her troubles. Fans won't get you to number 1. Everyone has fans and ennemis in all type of fields around the world. What counts the most is family support.

You know, you said that your eyes is open but they aren't! In Wtaquebec, when we talked about the weight of Aleks, you said that she's normal and all that, but geese...open your eyes! She will need to loose wieght if she wants do be a Top player! I wish her all the best but please, stop to be frustrated after all peolpes who said negative things...and if you have problems with person...PM them or whatever else but stop to post your comments and to say bad things about the person who said bad comments about your little sister....

There again, Aleks' determination was actually one thing that always prevented me from really being a huge fan of her. It will lead her to great things, I'm sure about that. But personnally, I felt like it is important for her to also get her mind out of tennis a little and accept what everyone offers her. Getting to the top seems to be so necessary for her, and sometimes I think it can blindfold her to the reality of things. Sometimes when you live in a world of illusions, it only leads to deception. But there again who isn't a victim of that!

Cool! Yeah you can comment on things and you have the right and all of us have stuff to say. I try to encourage and give them supoprt because they have to read lots of stuff and some is negative and sometimes they need to hear good things. They have already enough of things to worry about. No matter who it is, my favorite player or not, I still admire their hard work and wish them the best with everything. I tend to always write positive even in the worst senarios. That's just who I am. I try not to analyze too much because I don't know the player's life details sometimes. But that is me.

You need to understand also that for us tennis is our life, and by analysing their game we get closer to a dream we never could achieve or even try to achieve. By getting closer to the girls, I found a world I really enjoyed and wished I could be part of but sadly I can't. I think they are working very hard yes, but they also are very lucky to get the chance to get there. We kinda live our dreams through them, like a lot of tennis parents do, so it is quite tough for us when our bubbles breaks, just like it did for me with aleks.

There you go again, you talk like you grew up with her and know her. You have no idea what her life is outside tennis. So what do you have to offer her? Are you her sponsor? Are you what? She gets a lot of support and accepts it. Where do you get these things? We live all far from illusion in my family. Obvioulsy you had an easier life. You have to set goals and be realistic and that what players do. Aleks is so far from what you are saying. Aleks proved you wrong when you use to say that she would never go to the top in juniors and she did and she got to number one in Canada this year. But those are little things. Listen all I want you to do, is stop talking like you live with her and know her life because you obviously don't. Maybe soon you will tell us about Maria, Anna, and how they are in their lives. Just give her a break. Be at peace!

We can agree to disagree here and you certainly know a lot more about Aleks that I do. But I do know a lot more about what aleks and I talked about also.

And I'm giving her a break! That comment you picked on was actually the only one I did about her in the past few months since the Bell Challenge. I prefered just not to talk about her than say negative things, except when I felt like I needed to get my point across. I feel that i remainded respectful towards her though.

You guys just see her once in a while so you don't know all the details and yes, there's always going to be bad press and I don't care but I care about this one guy because people from Quebec tell me how rude he is and basically I was just sick of his comments for a year. And yes, there's always two side of the stories. Things that are good, things that are to improve, that's part of life. Players and coaches know what it takes to get better and the rest, is just comments and I have the right to post comments like he does. Listen, I say to my sister if she needs to lose weight what I think she needs to work on, that's normal but it's not for others to say and if they say it, she still does what her coaches tell her and not fans. All this comes to, is viewing your opinion and that's what I am doing like you and CD.

You are right, you don't need to be a hypocrite and cheer for her and you also shouldn't talk about stuff that you don't know then you really wouldn't be a hypocrite. Also, the reason why Aleks answered you the way she did, because she already had enough of you back then.

That's one thing you didn't really know about Aleks but since she was little, she was and still is a little sarcastic. It's part of her personality! But she never means anything bad about it, it's always for laughs and you can't take it personal because it's just meant to be funny that's all. That's how she makes me laugh. When we talk, she always says funny stuff like that. She really doesn't even do it for real, it's like a joke. And even if she said that for fun, inside, she was taking her match very seriously.

We don't worry about what others say too much. I am just the one that is protective of her and yes, I only want the best for her. And as for her doubles game, I know myself that she needs to come in more to the net and be more aggressive but there's no reason saying she doens't like it too much because she hasn't played dubs in a while in tournaments. She was very sick and weak and tried to rest for singles and because her raking is not too high, it's hard to get into the tournaments with some good players so sometimes, she doesn't want to waste that energy and play with someone that will tank like Esperon did during Jackson cause she had to show up in another tournamanet. It's not all Aleks' fault.

I saw her play around 6-7 matches in doubles. And all the times she didn't seem to really want to be out there. But that might be my conception, she isn't as emotive and out-there on the court as other canadian players, so she is tougher to analyse on court.

OMG you clearly have no idea of what happened. First of all, I never was Aleks' number one fan and never had the goal to be. I really liked her since the first time I saw her and I thought she had everything to become a great talent, which I still think she does. As for getting close in her life, if exchanging chats on like Congrats on your win and she tells me thanks, is getting too close for you, then I'm not the one with not an open mind. As for the girls email, I got Aleks' email from Steph. If she gets online and I have her email, I talk to her....BTW, that's the concept of MSN! :rolleyes: IF she didn't want to talk to me, she just had to stop it, which she did in a weird and mean way, but it is her choce and I'm fine about that. But I do care for players because of their attitude and not only their game and I certainly didn't like the attitude of Aleks and her entourage inthat situation, so I stopped to cheer for her for a while. But there is a huge limit between not cheering and bitching, what you think I'm doing. I said Aleks wasn't the player who should play for Canada in doubles, and I still think I am right. I even talked about Marie-Eve, who I adore, and her lack of doubles skills.

Ok, maybe I created the fact Aleks didn't like Doubles. But that's coming from the recent tournaments, where she didn't play one single doubles tourney. On the other hand, you also gave me intentions I didn't have about what I wrote here.

As for the part that I'm a freak trying to disturb them, I think that's the worst thing anybody told me of my life. I got pretty close with other players than Aleks and she is the only one who seemed to have been disturbed, and I talked to her once each 2-3 months :rolleyes: That is the meanest comment I've ever read here and if your goal was to make me feel bad, well congrats, you did girl!

OMG, aren't you a DRAMA QUEEN or what! jesus christ, get a life :smash:

Yeah! That's why I think we have a good shot to get to WG2! Either SUI, THA, IND or probable ARG!

Canada will be seeded and WON'T face those 4 teams.

They will face either Thailand, Argentina, Australia or Israel.

I Think that Argentina will obtain an easy victory. Even with the same team of last weekend against Croatia.

Don't be too sure because you just never know what can happen.

On anything fast, Canada will just crush Argentina if it's the same team as against Croatia..

If Dulko and/or Paola are on the team, it's another story...

If it was going to be anywhere on the west coast (which I was really hoping it wasn't), I assumed it would be Vancouver.
Now I can't go and there's no way they're going to show it on TV. I'm not very pleased right now. :fiery:

You never know, they showed the davis cup on tv when it was held in calgary i think a few years ago. So we can only hope.
