View Full Version : Fed Cup

Feb 7th, 2002, 08:00 PM
Ik heb eens nagevraagd en de 1e ronde van de Fed Cup wordt gespeeld gedurende het laatste weekend van april in Flanders Expo in Gent.

Feb 8th, 2002, 12:05 AM
Dan toch in Vlaanderen? Vreemd, ik dacht dat het de beurt was aan de AFT om het te organiseren.

What surface will they play on?

Feb 8th, 2002, 10:45 PM
Probably clay since they play Australia.

I hope I can go :) :) :)

Kim already said she would not play the second round of FED-cup.

Feb 8th, 2002, 10:58 PM
I ve read that too in an interview with her father some time ago, although it wasn't certain then. Thats bad news, without Kim and also Courtois not playing anymore we could be in trouble, Justine would have to do very well then.

allez..gaan we gaan kijken mensen???? :D

Justine will have to win both her matches, that's 2-0, but who will win the other point??? Maybe Els/Justine would be a good doubles.

Ja, ik wil wel gaan :) :) (maar da wist ge al ;) )

How come Kim doesn't want to play the second round??? :confused:

I'm not sure yet if I'll be able to go, but of course I would really like to.

It seems like it's not sure if they'll play in Flanders Expo; I can't find it on the calendar on their site. But the VTV told me so in their mail so could they've been wrong :confused:

It doesn't fit in her schedule with the american tournaments.

Feb 10th, 2002, 06:13 PM
I can't blame her, it would have been so much travel and suddenly a new surface. I think I would do the same!

Feb 10th, 2002, 06:52 PM
I'm a bit disappointed Kim decided not to play, I mean it's just after Wimbledon, it's not like it's in the middle of the American hardcourt season. But I respect her choise, Stanford is the week after Fed Cup, so she has lots of points to defend.

On the VTV website, it is now confirmed first round matches will be played on the outdoor gravelcourts from the Leopoldclub in Brussels (Ukkel) on 27-28 April.

Ik heb gelezen da het inderdaad in de Flanders Expo is. Er is zelfs al een telefoonnummer waarop da ge kaarten kunt bestellen. Ik denk da vlaanderen Fed Cup doet omdat Wallonië Davis Cup doet (België tegen Griekenland, ergens begin april)
En kim zou ni spelen omwille van haar arm. Ze moet op heel veel terugsnoeien (geen dubbels meer, minder toernooien, langere rustpauzes,...) en fed cup is er één van. Jammer maar begrijpelijk voor mij. Justine en Els zullen de klus nu moeten klaren hé

SPEAK ENGLISH! :o Sorry, folks :rolleyes:

Let me clear... the surface is Hard/Outdoor, right? :confused:

Mar 13th, 2002, 05:59 AM
Why are you calling Kim selfish????????
The girl is injured,she can't even defend her ranking properly,should be resting in fact,and now you ca her selfish beause she does'nt play the fed cup?????????:eek: :eek: :eek:

Mar 13th, 2002, 08:55 AM
I've seen somewhere that Justine might not play FED cup as well if Kimmie doesn't play, but I can't remember where I saw that.
I just hope Justine will play. I don't see how the team will compete with players like Laurence or even Elke.

COME ON girls, you have won the cup, you have to defend it!!!

Mar 13th, 2002, 11:44 AM
Alex_sydney..it's on gravel.

Mar 13th, 2002, 11:50 AM
Red clay & outdoors.

Thanks, Bram! :)

Is it true that Justine Henin maybe not play Fed Cup this April? :eek:

(GREAT chance for Australia win! :p)

Mar 15th, 2002, 12:00 PM
yes it's true...Justine thinks there will be too much pressure on her shoulders and she might consider not to play :eek: that would be awful...
