Re: Fed Cup 2011

Sevastova withdrew from Latvia team so we should beat Dekmeijere, Lileikite and Kuzmina team in the relegation play-off but we must draw them.

Re: Fed Cup 2011

The team without Lucic, Sprem and Martić is nothing.

This looks like our only hope to avoid relegation...

Re: Fed Cup 2011

Nothing better today, Mijacika expectedly lost to Govortsova 2 & 2, Pandzic actually did quite good in one set (at least it seems like that by the score), it ended 3 and 1 for Azarenka, while Njiric and Tomljanovic lost more convincingly than I expected against Kustova and Poutchek, it was 2 & 4.

Btw, Austria beat Greece 3-0 today...

In other words:

Re: Fed Cup 2011

Mijacika - Mayr-Achleitner 4:6, 7:6, 7:5


Tomljanovic - Bammer 4:6, 7:6, 6:1


So we beat Austria today. First let me apologize to our girls for not believing they can do something like this, cause these are really results worthy of respect. I don't know if we'll avoid relegation after all (seems like we could), but still credit to the girls for effort today. Beating a team lead by S. Bammer without several of our best players is really something. I expect Pandzic/Njiric will play doubles now, and it wouldn't surprise me if they'd win that one.

AJMO!!!!!

Re: Fed Cup 2011

Can anyone confirm that we've avoided a relegation match? Belarus is undefeated from our group, winning each of the ties 3-0. But each of the others has won one tie 3-0, and lost the other two 0-3.

Croatia beat Austria, Austria beat Greece and Greece beat Croatia I guess a ratio of won and lost sets will be used or something similar. If that would be the case, Greece would end up 4th, cause their ratio is 7-15, while ours is 9-14 and Austria's 8-13.

If the number of sets won is the criteria, we've done better than any of the others, and if it comes down to who lost fewer sets, we'd still end up third.

Any info?

Re: Fed Cup 2011

Good we stayed here and we are not threatened with relegation! Now we'll play for 9-12 place.
I hope next year the players like Lucić, Sprem and Martić can play. We need them in our team.

Amazingly enough, Croatia actually ended up in 2nd place in its group. That means we'll play for the 5th to 8th spot:

5th to 8th Play-off
Croatia v Great Britain
Israel v Romania

Re: Fed Cup 2011

^I don't think that there is a second round in the classification

Raelag, I thought you were Polish?

And cognrats to Croatia, at least they managed to beat Austria, something Greece couldn't do

Well, if we want to advance to WG2, we definately need a better team, but I don't think it's beyond possible that this time next year we find Ajla ranked higher than Petra (not to mention Karolina, the way she's been playing...), so we can obviously avoid relegation even with this team. Captain said something like, they made a wonderful turnaround, and they showed a great fighting spirit and inspiration (something like that).
