Even if they tied 2-2 in singles, chances for our doubles to beat super-power Czech team with currently #3 and #4 WTA ranked player in doubles Hlavackova and Hradecka (in last 5 months they together played finals of Wimbledon, Olympics, US Open and YEC!) is less than 1%. We have some unexpected doubles wins in past (based on rankings) against BEL, SVK and CAN, but only one of these 6 opponents players ever reach TOP30 in doubles. This tie is over yesterday.

Re: FedCup.

I've never seen Ana act worse on court, tbh. It was the first time I did not watch one of her matches until the end, I had to turn it off because she was really getting on my nerves.

Ana was a complete nervous wreck. Seriously off balance mentally.

To think once upon a time Ana was a big match player.. Now she can't handle any resemblance of pressure.

Re: FedCup.

What did just happen? Ana won an important match against a top 10 player on her turf? In Fed Cup?
The Mayas were right.

If only she had played like that against Lucie and Serbia might stand a chance

Re: FedCup.

One of the best matches Ana played all year.. it was a very high quality first set.. dropped a bit in the second due to Petra having trouble breathing.. but it was a quality match overall in which Ana was the best player.

I can only think that Ana should see what she can do when she is not a nervous wreck... play this well. Such a contrast with yesterday's nervous meltdown craptastic performance. Pity she couldn't play like this against Lucie, would've been a very different FC final.

Re: FedCup.

OMG GUISE I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW I CAN BARELY CONTAIN MYSELF!!

I am so proud of her. Like I just can't even describe it. It just feels like her biggest win in years! To pull out a win like that against an opponent like Petra in her own backyard during the Fed Cup final. Like it just feels amazing. So proud of her, even though she drives me nuts sometimes. Don't care if Petra was sick. I've just seen Ana blow so many matches like this, and she nearly did today, so to see her win like this is just amazing. So chuffed right now. And also glad she's been able to get a point for Serbia. IDEMO!!

Yes, because we know her so well, I think we can safely say that if Ana had lost the 3rd MP, it would have been quite likely that Petra would have held and then Ana could easily lose the tiebreak. She would have been in massive trouble.

If she had lost this match I can only imagine the mental scars it would have left. Losing from a set and 5-2 up? Having 3 MPs in a row? Feeling like she lost the fed cup for her country? She dodged some bullets today, like Neo in the matrix. I'm not sure how long it would have taken her to recover if she didn't. I'm glad she managed to avoid that scenario.

Overall it's a great confidence builder for Ana. It will give her a positive mood going into the offseason, and we all know how important mental outlook is for Ana.

Re: FedCup.

I agree. I think that her performance against Sam was very important too, now she knows she can be absolutely competitive against #6 - #10, win sets, matches, that's the first step to reentering the top 10.

Sadly, JJ is done. This looks very bad. Meh... Why can't Lucie play like this against someone else but my faves? I might become a fan again.

Agreed guys. Losing this match after playing so well and leading a set and 5-2 was just not an option.. would leave scars.. but winning it as she did could be a boost, even if Serbia doesn't win the tie. Ana played some very high quality tennis today.. she has to know she has it in her. Hopefully she finally has a strong off season.
