Nah, they changed the rules recently so dead rubbers don't get played.

I think they can still play them if both teams want to. But I'm sure in this case both teams just want to get the hell out of Chiasso, albeit for different reasons

Yes, they changed the rule but they should have played in this case. It is raining so they decide just not too.

The new policy says if a nation wins 3-1, they still played the dead doubles rubber but they will play a match tiebreak instead of a third set.







The new policy (in bold Australia-switzerland case)http://www.fedcup.com/en/news/articl...er-policy.aspx


The ITF announced today that it has revised the dead rubber policy for all Fed Cup ties, starting with this weekend’s Fed Cup by BNP Paribas World Group and World Group II first round ties on 9-10 February.
The new policy states that if a tie is decided after the third singles rubber (ie one nation has a winning 3-0 lead after the first match on Sunday), the fourth singles rubber will not be played (*) and the dead doubles rubber will be played instead.
However if the tie is decided after the fourth singles rubber (ie one nation has a winning 3-1 lead), the dead doubles rubber will still be played. A match tiebreak (first to 10 points) will replace the third set in all dead doubles rubbers.
The existing dead rubber policy used in the Fed Cup Final will remain the same. If a tie is decided after the third singles rubber, the fourth singles rubber will not be played, and the dead doubles rubber will be played instead. However if the tie is decided after the fourth singles rubber, the dead doubles rubber will not be played.

From the twitter comments it sounded like our girls played well, Sam and Ash at least. Apparently Oprandi also played well, a lot of tricky stuff that gave both Sam and Jarka quite some trouble. Voegele apparently didn't have a great day. I gather she had some problem with her leg, not sure what.

Another twitter report from a swiss journalist: "Ash Barty is such a smart player. Can play any shot and did well to move Voegele around today. Really impressed" https://twitter.com/letstalktennis1

Re: Fed Cup 2013

Brave decision by Alicia to go with Ash in the reverse, and good on her for making the tough call and getting it right.

Though injuries and poor form hampered us, what we had was greater depth than the Swiss and Alicia utilised that strength by putting in a fresh Ashley over an apprently injured and out of sorts Vogele. Clever move.

Poor Jarka, she crunched Oprandi in Hobart and three months later couldn't get near her :-(

Re: Fed Cup 2013

Barty said she knew 2 hours before the match that she was going to play...Of course Molik could have changed her mind again but it doesn't sound good about Jarka's performance

Re: Fed Cup 2013

So what happens with Jarka for the next tie? (when & wherever that is...)

Will Ash play in the singles with Sam? Because then I see it pointless for Jarka to be in the team, unless she is there for backup. But even then I would get Rodionova in the team. Or will they let Jarka play in the 1st match again and see how she goes, but that is unfair on Ash who just won her match. Or will they get in a youngster into the team to replace Jarka, like Storm (or Hon, Cabrera, Bains (pratt ))? Dokic maybe

Re: Fed Cup 2013

Well, it will be about nine months until the next tie, so I guess we'll have to wait and see how Jarka is going at that stage. I know that she's been going through a pretty bad loss of form for a long period of time now, but if she's playing at her potential I still think she's the second best singles player we've got.

If she continues with her current run of form, and Ash continues to improve rapidly, then I agree that Jarka's spot on the team becomes very open. I'd still be slightly more inclined to keep her there over Rodionova, just because I don't know that ARod really adds much to the team except as a solid back up player, but then I'm biased with regards to that decision
