Re: Fed Cup 2017, World Group 2: Italy vs Slovakia

And it will start with Cepelova-Schiavone and Sramkova - Errani. I think a 1:1 after the first day is possible (with Sramkova having a better chance to get that one point).

Re: Fed Cup 2017, World Group 2: Italy vs Slovakia

So as expected, 1:1 after the first day.
AKS still in a huge slump, lost to Schiavone. But Sramkova could expose Errani.
Hope for Hantuchova (or Cepelova if she get well till tomorrow) in next matches.

Yes, what a stupid decision to put this nervous mess A. Schmiedlova in

A. Schmiedlova is a walking bye. Very weak performance. Mentally weakest player ever

Anna was embarrassing to watch. Poor serving, bad UEs, ZERO confidence on court

Very "smart" from Slovak captain to put Anna who has ZERO form and self-confidence

I still have NO idea how he thought that Schmiedlova could win a rubber ...

Yes, its Hantuchova instead of AKS.
Am a bit sorry for AKS as it may lower her super-low confidence further. But in their current form, even Hantuchova has a better chance against Errani. Seems Cepelova is still ill :-(
