Fed Cup 2015

So we take on Germany on the 7–8 February in Stuttgart, Germany. Indoors (hardcourt).

No news on the team yet but Sam, Casey and Jarka would be automatic inclusions and undoubtedly would play all five matches between them.

The fourth spot won't be Rodionova, and I expect Liv would rather stay in Australia for the 50k's. For that matter Storm should also. Maybe one of the juniors will take the 4th spot

I'd prefer Sam and Jarka for singles, Casey and I suppose whoever is in the best touch during the tie, for the doubles.

Re: Fed Cup 2015

But seriously, I agree Jarka over Casey on current form. And Jarka is proven to be significantly better than Casey against top 20 players.
Probably a revival of 2012 Olympic partners Sam & Casey for the doubles. I think Storm will be the fourth players otherwise I could actually see Arina being selected due to no one else..

Jarka over both the others for the top singles spot in my mind.

Re: Fed Cup 2015

I think that's the exact same team we had when we last played Germany in Stuttgart in 2012? Or 2013?

Would Nastya be spewing again at the selections or would she kind of be over the whole thing by now. It really couldn't be much of a surprise for her anymore not being picked.

Tbh if I was Nastya I probably wouldn't care anymore. (Except can she even play Olympics??)

She probably doesn't get along with those girls well anyway

Re: Fed Cup 2015

Imagine if this were a normal office environment, and you were constantly getting results yet inferior colleagues always got the praise or the promotions. It wouldn't sit right would it?

Anyway, she's not happy on twitter -
@ariodonova It's sad to see how personal feelings get in a way of many professional decisions! #unfair

As for Olivia, I feel she's just the pawn in the middle of this. Molik & Pratt don't really give a toss about her, but she's there purely because there's no one else and they'd rather cut their own limbs off than to give Nastya a berth. Her ranking will nose dive to 200 because she can't defend any of her points. Essentially she's sacrificing her ranking to be a glorified seat warmer. Do you think they will select her in April or whenever, when her ranking is actually in the 200s? No they won't. Sadly, Olivia is kind of screwed as a result of this.

Re: Fed Cup 2015

You only have to make yourself available for Fed Cup to be eligible for Olympic selection so that's one bit of good news for Nastya.

I agree with TS, if they weren't going to pick Nastya they should have given the spot to a junior who probably wouldn't be playing that week anyway. Might be nice for Liv to be around the other girls though, I'm sure they will give her some good advice, particularly Casey who didn't break into the top 100 until she was around the age Liv is now (22-23?).
