Re: Greek Fed Cup Team

Και τώρα Δανία με Wozniacki


Σε αγώνα μπαράζ θα αποφασιστεί η παραμονή της Εθνικής μας ομάδας Fed Cup στο Group I Europe/Africa. Η εξέλιξη ήταν πραγματικά δυσάρεστη καθώς η νίκη της Κροατίας επί της Αυστρίας ήταν απρόσμενη και έριξε στα μπαράζ την εθνική μας στα σημεία.

H Λένα Δανιηλίδου, η Άννα Γερασίμου, η Ειρήνη Γεωργάτου και η Δέσποινα Παπαμιχαήλ κάτω από τις οδηγίες του Γιώργoυ Καλοβελώνη έχουν να αντιμετωπίσουν την Δανία του Νο 1 της παγκόσμιας κατάταξης, Caroline Wozniacki, Karen Barbat, Mai Grage και Cecilie Melsted οι οποίες απογοήτευσαν με τις εμφανίσεις τους, καθώς η Wozniacki δεν μπορεί να κερδίζει μόνη της.



Στο παρελθόν οι εθνικές μας ομάδες έχουν βρεθεί τρείς φορές με τη Δανία να προηγείται με 2-1, αλλά η τελευταία αναμέτρηση ήταν το 2005 στην Τουρκία. Προβλέψεις;

Η Ελληνική ομάδα είναι αρκετά δεμένη. Κρίσιμη θα είναι η εμφάνιση της Λένας Δανιηλίδου και αυτό σχετίζεται με την πορεία της υγείας της. Η Λένα περνά ένα κρυολόγημα που τη βρήκε μετά τον αγώνα με την Αυστρία και την οδήγησε σήμερα σε εγκατάλειψη. Η παρουσία της στην ομάδα του διπλού θα δώσει φτερά στην αναμέτρηση.

Όπως προβλέπεται, εάν αγωνιστεί θα έχει απέναντι της τη Wozniacki. H Λένα πάντοτε γοητεύεται να παίζει με κορυφαίες αθλήτριες και τα δίνει όλα. Ο στόχος μας όμως είναι η νίκη στο διπλό και η νίκη ανάμεσα στα Νο 2 μας, με την Ειρήνη Γεωργάτου να σηκώνει αυτό το βάρος. Η Ειρήνη βρίσκεται σε καλή φόρμα και ακόμη καλύτερη αγωνιστική νοοτροπία.

Μιλήσαμε με τη Δέσποινα Παπαμιχαήλ και μας μετέφερε το κλίμα στην ομάδα "Η αλήθεια είναι ότι δεν περιμέναμε κάτι τέτοιο και μας ξάφνιασε αυτή η ανατροπή. Αλλά είμαστε έτοιμες για τος αυριανό match και θα τα δώσουμε όλα για να πετύχουμε το στόχο μας απέναντι στη Δανία."

Η παραμονή στην κατηγορία είναι ανοιχτή. Κανονικά αξίζει στα κορίτσια μας η παραμονή στην κατηγορία την οποία κέρδισαν πανάξια πέρυσι και παλεύουν και φέτος!


*It basically says that the focus is to win the #2 singles and the doubles, and then Papamichail said "We didn't expect to play in the relegation match, but we are ready for tomorrow's match and will give everything to achieve our goal against Denmark"

This quote seems like Eleni will play, since she said "we will give everything", which means that even if Eleni is ill, she will play. Also even for one game against Wozniacki, this way Eirini can win the #2 singles and then we will have a chance in doubles. Otherwise having Eirini play vs. Caroline and then hoping that Gerasimou (no match fit) or Papamichail (inexperienced) will beat Barbat and then we will have to play the doubles...

Re: Greek Fed Cup Team

ΕΛΛΑΔΑ, ΕΣΥ Νο1!


Η Εθνική ομάδα των γυναικών νίκησε την Δανία της Νο1 στον κόσμο Caroline Wozniacki και κατάφερε να αποφύγει τον υποβιβασμό και να παραμείνει στο Group I της Ευρωαφρικανικής ζώνης του Fed Cup. H νίκη κρίθηκε στον αγώνα του διπλού όπου οι Δανιηλίδου και Γεωργάτου νίκησαν τις Grage/Wozniacki με 6-2, 7-5, κάνωντας μια επική ανατροπή στο δεύτερο σετ, όπου ήταν κάτω στο σκορ με 4-0!

Η αναμέτρηση ξεκίνησε πολύ καλά για την Εθνική μας ομάδα, αφού η Ειρήνη Γεωργάτου μπήκε δυνατά απέναντι στην Karen Barbat, την οποία νίκησε με 6-1, 7-6(2). Στη συνέχεια το μεγάλο όπλο της Δανίας, που ακούει στο όνομα Caroline Wozniacki αντιμετώπισε την δική μας κορυφαία αθλήτρια Λένα Δανιηλίδου. Το σκορ υπέρ της Δανής με 6-0, 6-3, αλλά όλοι γνώριζαν πως ο αγώνας του διπλού που θα ακολουθήσε θα ήταν ο σημαντικότερος αγώνας, ο οποίος θα έκρινε ποια ομάδα θα παρέμενε στην κατηγορία.

Η Εθνική μας μπηκε πολύ δυνατά στο διπλό κάνωντας break στο 2-1 για να πάρουμε προβάδισμα με 4-1 και να τελειώσουμε το πρώτο σετ με ένα ακόμη break. Στο δεύτερο σετ η Δανία πήρε κεφάλι με 4-0 και όλα έδειχναν πως το ματς θα πήγαινε σε τρίτο σετ. Ειρήνη και Λένα είχαν όμως διαφρετική άποψη. Με μια αντεπίθεση διαρκείας, έκαναν αρχικά το 4-2, και όταν βρέθηκαν ένα μόλις game πριν την απώλεια του σετ (5-2), τα έδωσαν όλα και με 5 συνεχόμενα break πήραν για την Ελλάδα μια σημαντική νίκη που εξασφάλισε την παραμονή της Εθνικής στο 1o γκρουπ της Ευρωαφρικανικής ζώνης του Fed Cup.

H διακύμανση του σκορ στο διπλό είχε ως εξής:

ΔΑΝΙΑ - ΕΛΛΑΔΑ

1ο ΣΕΤ: 0-1: 1-1: 1-2: 1-3: 1-4: 2-4: 2-5: 2-6:
2o ΣΕΤ: 1-0: 2-0: 3-0: 4-0: 4-1: 4-2: 5-2: 5-3: 5-4: 5-5: 5-6: 5-7:

Αμέσως μετά την νίκη η Δέσποινα Παπαμιχαήλ, μέλος της Εθνικής ομάδος μας είπε: "Είμαστε όλες ενθουσιασμένες και ικανοποιημένες γιατί πετύχαμε τον στόχο μας. Παρ'ότι τα πράγματα ήρθαν άνω κάτω, το βάλαμε πείσμα και κερδίσαμε"

Οι φίλοι του tennisnews.gr είχαν την ευκαιρία να παρακολουθήσουν LIVE την εξέλιξη της αναμέτρησης μεταξύ της Ελλάδας και της Δανίας, και για αυτή μας την προσπάθεια οφείλουμε ένα μεγάλο ευχαριστώ στον Αριστοτέλη Σαρατζίδη, ο οποίος βρέθηκε στο Eilat για να διαιτητεύσει αγώνες του Fed Cup, αλλά και την Ομοσπονδία Αντισφάιρισης της Δανίας, για την άψογη και αμεσότατη ενημέρωση κατά τη διάρκεια του αγώνα στο διπλό... 'Mange tak'!


Παρακολουθείστε παρακάτω LIVE την εξέλιξη του αγώνα...




*Papamichail said "We are all excited because we achieved our goal"

Our girls were down 0-4 and 2-5 in the doubles second set

Re: Greek Fed Cup Team

Μεγάλη νίκη και παραμονή!


Η Δανία της Καρολίν Βοζνιάκι υποκλίθηκε στην Εθνική ομάδα γυναικών της Ελλάδας. Το αντιπροσωπευτικό μας συγκρότημα, δεν "μάσησε" από την κακή κλήρωση στο μπαράζ παραμονής και με συγκλονιστική νίκη 2-1 επί της Δανίας, εξασφάλισε την παραμονή της στο Group1 της Ευρωαφρικανικής ζώνης του Fed Cup.

Οι Λένα Δανιηλίδου, Ειρήνη Γεωργάτου, έχοντας κερδίσει το 1ο με 6-2, βρέθηκαν να χάνουν με 4-0 και 5-2 στο 2ο σετ από τις Βοσνιάκι, Γκράγκε στο καθοριστικό διπλό που θα έκρινε ποιά ομάδα θα παρέμενε στην 1η κατηγορία, μετά την ισοπαλία από τους δύο πρώτους αγώνες του μονού.

Όλα έδειχναν ότι η συνάντηση θα κρινόταν «στην ρώσικη ρουλέτα» του τελικού σετ αλλά το ελληνικό δίδυμο με αντεπίθεση διαρκείας πήρε πέντε συνεχόμενα γκέιμ κι έφτασε στην πολυπόθητη νίκη με 6-2, 7-5.

Το τι πανηγύρι έγινε μετά δεν περιγράφεται. Οι Δανιηλίδου, Γεωργάτου πνίγηκαν στις αγκαλιές των συμπαικτριών τους, Γερασίμου, Παπαμιχαήλ, του προπονητή, Γιώργου Καλοβελώνη και του συνοδού-μέλους της ΕΦΟΑ, Γιώργου Καραμάνη.

«Έπαιξαν φανταστικό τένις κι έκαναν τη Βοσνιάκι να βγει από τα ρούχα της. Τους αξίζουν χίλια μπράβο. Τα κορίτσια στάθηκαν εξαιρετικά σε μια διοργάνωση που είχε συγκεντρώσει κορυφαία ονόματα του παγκόσμιου τένις» δήλωσε ο Γ. Καλοβελώνης.

Από τους πρώτους που έσπευσαν να δώσουν συγχαρητήρια στον προπονητή και στις τενίστριες ήταν ο πρόεδρος της ΕΦΟΑ, Σπύρος Ζαννιάς. «Το ελληνικό τένις έχει παρόν και μέλλον. Συγχαρητήρια σε όλους όσοι συνέβαλαν στη μεγάλη αυτή επιτυχία. Τα κορίτσια μας έκαναν γι άλλη μια φορά υπερήφανους» δήλωσε.

Η καλή μέρα φάνηκε από το πρωί για την ελληνική ομάδα, καθώς στο πρώτο παιχνίδι του Απλού η Γεωργάτου νίκησε την Κάρεν Μπάρμπατ με 6-1, 7-6 (2). Στη συνέχεια η Δανιηλίδου έχασε από τη Βοσνιάνκι με 6-0, 6-3 αλλά πήρε την εκδίκησή της στο Διπλό...

Re: Greek Fed Cup Team

We moved up this week from #44 to #37 in the rankings
Probably the highest we've been in about 5 years, maybe more!

Re: Greek Fed Cup Team

Lot has changed. Stavros Michalopoulos is the new captain. Daniilidou, Papamichail, Stefanou, and Sakkari this years team but now Daniilidou won't play. Group matches vs. Hungary, Sweden, and Bosnia. Not going to be easy

Tomorrow we will get destroyed by Hungary but it will be interesting to see how Papamichail and Sakkari will play against very high ranked players...

Re: Greek Fed Cup Team

Hungary 3-0 Greece
S1: Reka-Luca Jani (HUN) def. Maria Sakkari (GRE) 6-4 7-5
S2: Timea Babos (HUN) def. Despina Papamichail (GRE) 6-4 6-0
D: Babos/Marosi (HUN) def. Papamichail/Stefanou (GRE) 6-2 6-4

Better than expected for sure . Maria was amazing. Jani is world number 157 so an amazing effort from her
Despina was okay. She sort of faded after the first set though
Doubles went better than expected so that isn't too bad I guess...

Tomorrow is an important match against Bosnia

Re: Greek Fed Cup Team

Greece 1-2 Sweden
Allgurin d. Sakkari 61 62
Papamichail d. Melander 64 64
Allgurin/Melander d. Papamichail/Stefanou 61 62

Couldn't even beat Sweden B
Even though we are with our B team also

Now I think we will lose to Luxembourg . Relegation . So many people to blame. Especially Eleni

Relegation hurts
We totally would've been fine if Eleni or Eirini played

LUX d. GRE 2-1
Schaul d. Stefanou 64 62
Papamichail d. Kremer 57 64 75
Kremer/Schaul d. Papamichail/Sakkari 36 62 76(8)

Thoughts later...

Re: Greek Fed Cup Team

Where do I start?

Stefanou playing instead of Sakkari was weird. Sakkari lost to Allgurin and Husaric so maybe playing Stefanou wasn't such a bad idea at first. Schaul is a former top 50 player, but she is no where near that now, and Agni totally gave it away :sobbing. She was up a double break at 3-0 in the first set, only to lose it 6-4 . I started following the match from the second set and she immediately broke and was up 2-0, only to lose the next 6 games . She has so many chances and wasted so many BPs and GPs

Re: Greek Fed Cup Team

Papamichail d. Kremer

Huge win for Despina . But much harder than it should've been. So much choking in this match . First set was pretty even with both players holding serve for the first few games. Despina broke Kremer and had a set point at 5-3 but lost it and then had two or three more set points at 5-4 and wasted them and then ended up losing the set 5-7 . Then in the second Despina was doing well and led 5-2 and then choked before finally closing it out to take it 6-4. Then the final set was a mess . She led *4-2 and then ended up wasting her lead and finally closed it out at 7-5 for a great win to level the tie . But much much tougher than it should've been

Re: Greek Fed Cup Team

Now the epic doubles match

This tie was so crazy and I was just constantly refreshing the livescores every few seconds for like 8 hours throughout the day. I have no life

After Maria and Despina took the first set 6-3, I thought we had it and was already thinking about staying in G1 and who should get nominated next year. Little did I know...

We lost the second set quite comfortably, 6-2 . Then the third set was EPIC!!! We immediately broke for a 1-0 lead and I was all excited. Then we just kept losing game after game and then it was 1-4 and then I got really nervous and then it was 1-5. I'm so weird . I have these weird superstitions sometimes during matches . I was following today's scores on my iPad and I had the screen the vertical way for Agnis match and then after she lost I switched it to horizontal to see if maybe it would bring luck and it did . I honestly didn't expect us to win the doubles and at 1-5 I just kept refreshing every 5 seconds and after every point I would do my cross to pray that we would win the next one. I'm not joking. EVERY SINGLE POINT for the rest of the match. I missed one though because I went to the bathroom during a changeover and when I came back it had already resumed . We somehow just kept saving match points. We didn't save them in every game from then on, but in total we saved at least 5 match points until Luxembourg won. I lost count but there were some really long games and intense praying from me . I don't even know why I wasted my whole day with this. I'm the only one on the planet who actually cares about Fed Cup . We somehow made it 5-5 with out teenage doubles duo and then it was 5-6. I don't know why but I felt that even from 1-5 that we would come back and I just kept praying . See everyone, convert to Orthodox Christianity and good things will happen when your raves are losing . Then we went to a TB and I was just so proud of them and I was predicting a 7-4 win in the TB from us, not sure why...

Then it wasn't going so well as it was 2-4 but then we leveled it at 4-4 and then it was 4-5 and then the rest was just a mess. 5-5 and then 5-6 IIRC and then 6-6, etc. Luxembourg kept having match points and we kept saving them, it was AMAZING . Then we were up 8-7. It would've been amazing to win. I will never forget this match for the rest of my life. I thought I was going to have a heart attack : o. Well, Luxembourg won 10-8 in the end. I wanted to cry but I wasnt that upset because I didn't expect a win anyways . I can only imagine how the girls were feeling after the match

I'm amazed this team made it so close . Thought Kremer and Schaul wouldn't struggle so much
nice fight , probably heartbreaking loss for the Greeks
So much support from non-Greeks but we couldn't do it in the end
