her serve and backhand return was good, but Malek carried the team.
she might have been rusty though not playing doubles in awhile.

Lindsay and Lisa are one of the best teams of their generation, so an expected easy win for them. I hope they will play with each other throughout the year now.

Linz + Lisa - great couple! All in all, they have a good experience playing together. Well done!
Sorry for Anna-Lena, though *sad*

I found it hilarious that ALG was laughing during the time that Lindsay was upset in this FED CUP.

Lindsay had a baby 6.5 months ago. What's your excuse for being unfit ALG?
None. Maybe it's best if she tries to keep her mouth shut. That seems to be the biggest issue.

It's nice that Lindsay decided to play with Lisa. That they were able to crush the German team right in front of Zina while Weasel Huber was acting like a spoiled brat in Paris, is surely going to make the decision for Zina easier come Olympics.

That's what you should be saying about the German decision.

You have Kerber and Schruffaluffacous and ALG and Malek are chosen?
Germany could have won this rubber.

Place your hope in Kerber for another top 30 star if you've seen her play.

Our captain Miss Barbara Rittner had an issue with Schruff and Muller so they are banned from the team.

Yeah Kerber should have played. But as I said Rittner SUCKS

And how can you be a doubles specialist if you're not even the highest ranked player in doubles from that country?

I don't think she was laughing because of Lindsay but because her teammate won which is pretty normal :confused:

Its like Zi Yan.. She is a doubles specialis and its worst in the rankings than Li or Peng.. but still is better in doubles.. :shrug:

Also like Dechy :shrug: Its better in doubles than Momo, Bartoli or Golovin who are wayyyyyy ahead of her in rankings..

well im sure if it was a live rubber, maybe the coach would have re considered. But since it was dead and obviously ana could use the practice coming back - why not:confused:

Weird story :tape: In 2006 when ALG was a top player and Font De Mora her coach our team captain Barbara Rittner only cared about her and barely about the other players like Schruff,Müller,Klösel.. She also didn't need to... as long as ALG made 2 points :o Font the Mora was EVERYWHERE he watched them training and everything. The other players felt bothered and finally Schruff and Müller didn't want to play any longer in Fedcup because of the circumstances. ALG was the princess everyone cared about her (even if she didn't want it herself) Later Rittner said that Schruff and Müller wanted more money for playing in Fedcup. But she had to do something to save her ass and banned them from FC :)

But they deserve that respect because they actually won slams in doubles, ALG hasn't.

They are going to play in Memphis together. :) I love watching them play and they should play together more. I don't see why they don't play together until Sam comes back.

Honestly at this point she has a better chance of bulking up for weightlifting at the Olympics than playing tennis there.
I just request that her name be changed to Helga at that point.
