GB Fed Cup Cheering Thread

After 2 near misses in the playoffs, will it be 3rd time lucky for our girls in the Fed Cup this year?

Probably not, but let's support them anyway.

Great Britain this year are Johanna Konta, Heather Watson, Tara Moore & Jocelyn Rae. No Laura


Wednesday, 5th February
15:00: Great Britain vs Latvia
Diana Marcinkevica, Jelena Ostapenko, Laura Gulbe, Darta-Elizabete Emulina

This should be an easy win. Their no. 2 is ranked 705.

Friday, 7th February
15.00: Great Britain vs Romania
Simona Halep, Sorana Cirstea, Monica Niculescu, Irina-Camelia Begu

The worst possible draw.

Saturday, 8th February
15:00: Great Britain vs Hungary
Timea Babos, Reka-Luca Jani, Melinda Czink, Agnes Bukta

Hungary will have the home crowd, but GB will still be slight favourites here. May well come down to the doubles.

Go GB

Romania look ridiculously strong.

Re: GB Fed Cup Cheering Thread

Any other group and surely GB would have had a shot at promotion, even without Laura. Romania's team look like it belongs in WG I

Re: GB Fed Cup Cheering Thread

Hopefully they will be inspired by the Davis Cup victory? All playing like top 100 players? Well Heather basically is a top 100 player and she could beat any of the Romanian players on the right day...

Re: GB Fed Cup Cheering Thread

Very tough with Romania and the home favourites Hungary in their group.

Missing Laura, and also missing the experience that Anne and Bally brought to the team. I'd actually be satisfied if they just manage not to screw up and lose to Latvia! Any better than that is a bonus.

Re: GB Fed Cup Cheering Thread

Hmm. Halep lost to Babos. That makes things intersting. Hev struggled in the first set v Latvia's Ostapenko, but got the required straight sets win.

Jo has just gone into a third set v Marcinkevica. I hope she pulls herself together a bit.

GBR-LAT 2-0

Konta d. Marcinkevica 63 46 75

Joko was 2-5 down in the final set and saved a match point. Great comeback for her 1st ever win in Fed Cup!

Phew! Nice comeback, Jo

We could have really done with Hungary winning their doubles match against the Romanians though. Still going to be an uphill struggle to qualify.

Re: GB Fed Cup Cheering Thread

The Latvians won the doubles: 1-6 7-5 7-6(5). That's a bit disappointing.

Play for your life Jo! Halep's confidence may be down after her last loss.

Jo has a chance.
