Not that bad of a loss for Steph.
It's good that she's getting more experience against top players.

from what we hear, it is more than half empty in Kamloops, stupid idea to play there with no crowd at all...

:fiery: I'm pissed to hear that...

4 girls from Quebec on the team and they choose to play in BC :yeah::rolleyes::weirdo: If it would've been played in Montreal or Quebec City, I can assure you the stadium wouldn't be more then half empty!

It should have been held in the province of Quebec but Tennis Canada for multiple stupids reasons decided it wouldn't be here.

Kamloops? They should have had it in Calgary, where we had davis cup and the crowds were really into it.

Well, the Canadian desire to escape the Israeli/Jewish communities of the big cities seemed to have backfired big time, LOL.

Probably a good thing, though, for us. I think Shahar was nervous enough as it is without a partisan crowd OR feeling the pressure from too many Israeli fans.

welli didnt want to be too rude.

i was just miffed at his generilizating that tennis canada was placing this based on "jewish numbers" making it a racial thing...which is bullshit.

not to mention that there are jewish people ALL OVER THIS COUNTRY...INCLUDING kamloops.

thanks alot...this guy is an idiot. clearly.

:wavey: :worship:

Sadly, it isn't such bullshit. It was one of the principal reasons why tennis canada made it there. They are scared that in bigger cities, the home advantage will be *lost* by the israeli community who could fill the crowds.

It's not an accusation, for heaven sake. I'm not taking it seriously/badly or whatever, I don't think it has nothing to do with it being a racial thing, it has to do with the canadians wanting to keep the edge of the Fed cup being in Canada. Fair enough, just like playing on carpet, which Shahar doesn't like.

BTW, if not it - why DID they choose Kamloops? It's way harder to reach than a big city. If I'm getting it wrong, do explain.

I don't know anything about Canadian geography but I saw this in one of the articles about the upcoming fed cup tie that could perhaps provide an alternate explanation:

" It's a shame Montreal wasn't chosen to host the tie, especially given the makeup of the team. It would have ensured a rabid home-field advantage they won't come close to matching at Kamloops's brand-new, $22-million Fieldhouse.

But Tennis Canada is committed to spreading events across the country to increase exposure. And with Montreal already hosting the Rogers Cup and Quebec City the popular Bell Challenge, it chose a location as far from home as could be. "
