2014 Fed Cup
Team has been selected. The new Fed Cup captain Paul Haarhuis has selected Bertens, Rus, Hogenkamp and Krajicek.

Really strong team imo, all capable of playing both singles and doubles. :) Haarhuis doubted whether he needed to select de Vroome but the experience of the others made the difference.

Aran will go to South America and she skips the Fed Cup. No replacement jet. It will not be Indy because she is also in South America.

Re: 2014 Fed Cup
What is Indy doing in South America? :lol:

But yes, Aran is probably gonna play Q for WTA tourneys in Rio de Janeiro and Florianopolis. Maybe she is playing 100k Midland before going there but I don't know. (I have family in Midland, they've been living there for 20 years now :)) I guess she will play Indian Wells and Miami straight after that?

Re: 2014 Fed Cup
Excellent win for Richel, one of her best in quite a while. :cheer: :D

Kiki also beat Vekic 62 64, which is a nice win too regarding her less than average start of the season. Nice confidence booster.

Good job in the doubles by Misa too :)

Re: 2014 Fed Cup

Richel Hogenkamp, who had played only doubles matches for the Dutch team until last year, upset a higher-ranked opponent for the second day in succession to give her team a winning start.
The world No. 205 beat An-Sophie Metsach, the world No. 123, 75 63. After a tight first set Hogenkamp got an early break in the second and went on to complete her victory in style with a huge forehand winner into the corner.
Kiki Bertens beat Yanina Wickmayer 62 75, but only after a bruising second set. Wickmayer, whose game had gone awry in the latter stages of the first set, started hitting the ball with consistent power and went 5-3 up in the second, but Bertens clung on.
Having broken back to 4-5, Bertens won a marathon tenth game, saving set points in the process, and broke again to lead 6-5. When she served for the match the Dutch No. 1 was calmness personified.
