Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Final #28!!! vs. Italy: Need a Miracle...

Yeah too bad. If Bethanie didn't play yesterday and Mel did, we could have likely had that point as well as Bethanie for doubles.

Melanie playing the doubles makes me nervous as hell. Who is our 5th member of the team? We should have had Vania so she could have come in with Liezel for doubles. Melanie isn't good at doubles.

I just feel having Coco play could be our downfall. Melanie might have won this shit for us if she got to play yesterday.

ETA:

Why the fuck would they have Christina McHale as the 5th member? They should have at least put someone in that they could have used. Maybe Vania or Lisa for doubles with Liezel. Vania would have been the safe bet because she could have played singles if two people happened to be injured. I don't see the point of having Christina on the team.

Is Beth really not even fit enough to play doubles?

Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Final #28!!! vs. Italy: Need a Miracle...

I'm sure she would have been if they saved her for doubles.

It's such a tough call because we have so many players outside of S/V that are around the same level of talent. I think it really comes down to who is in better form at the moment and who has experience. Melanie won a crucial point for us in 2009. She also won 2/3 live rubbers for us in the QF this year. Bethanie won two back to back points for us to defeat Russia. At the same time they have also flopped under pressure, so it's tough.

I just don't get having Christina as the 5th member. Should have been Vania, Lisa, or maybe even Slow-Anne. It just irritates me that we could possibly get this shit to doubles and not have a chance because we don't have a good second doubles player. Who knows, I think Liezel is a good coach and can be good as a team player. Liezel is going to have to step it up though big time.

Besides Vania, what about Varvara Lepchenko? Will be a career high #79 on Monday and she has a good game for indoors.

Does she? I thought her game was more suited for clay? Anyways, I don't like how Varvara is very clearly overlooked. Also Alison Riske, she is a very good fast court player.

Coco needs to start well, get on the board quick and ease her nerves.

Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread - Final #28!!! vs. Italy: Need a Miracle...

Hmm, tough call coming if if the doubles rubber is live. Beth may not be fit enough for singles, but she possibly could be for doubles. It would still make me very nervous as Beth could pull it even worse during the match =-/
