It looks like Pavlyuchenkova doesn't belong there because she's pretty much the only Russian Kaia is able to beat.
Anyway, how was doubles?
I decided only to watch the first set as Kanepi/Georges dominated. Serving=Amazing. Outhit their opponents completely, volleys, passing shots, serve, ground strokes. Maybe some unforced errors came in the second or third but the Americans werent given many opportunities. Except maybe the end where they had a few break points. Serving much better for Kaia than in singles. Didnt combine awfully well (a few clashing rackets) but served unbelievebly nearly the whole first set. This could be a very good combination.
Kaia said that it just wasnt her day. Didnt find a right feeling or right rhythm and her serve was the biggest weakness against Makarova. She told she played much better in doubles, they smiled a lot and it was fun (good for Kaia that she managed to enjoy that match only a few hours after that loss in singles).
Doubles R2 is last match on court 18.
I really dont see Estonia getting to world group 2 before kaia retiring. I mean, she defnately wont play zonal group 2 fed cup and soon anett might even stop playing. they really need to try and stay in zone group 1.
