Very poor form on the part of g. Mihelic

+1


We should start a letter-writing campaign in support of Tereza and Darija

Correction - Darija earned 3 points; one with Ana and two with Tereza.

Re: Fed Cup 2013

There was a lot of talk today about FC in an SPTV interview with Ana Konjuh and Marina Mihelic (our national federation's official). Interview otherwise didn't give us anything we didn't already know when it comes to FC, but I do have one criticism - not towards Ana but Mrs. Mihelic - for not giving any credit to either Tereza or Darija for Fed Cup and only mentioning Ana and Donna in that regard. At one point Mihelic said that it's great to see Tomljanovic back on tournaments and that along with Petra (who was mentioned more than once) she could help form a very strong team. But still - not a word about Darija or Tereza, who earned us 2 wins in doubles. Now that's disrespectful.

Re: Fed Cup 2013

Current Fed cup rankings show...

- Belarus at #17
- Poland at #23
- Austria at #25
- Croatia at #40
- Georgia at #42

I think we can conclude this is about to change drastically.

(sure, Georgia didn't have Tatishvili, Austria didn't have Paszek, Belarus didn't have Azarenka or Govortsova, but we also didn't have Petra and still almost won the play-off)
