Re: Fed Cup 2017, World Group 1 SF: USA v Czech Republic

I has to go with CZE obviously. If it will go to doubles I see it very bad, but I my by naive I think we have chance to close it in singles...I don't know how CoCo plays on this sourface but she has poor movment and MAky with Katka both has variety in game with good dropshots. An one of them could def also Shelby. If we can win with our B team we should send C team to the finals

Queen Petra Kvitova

K&K. Plis - K. Siniakova - M. Vondrousova - L. Safarova - D. Allertova - H&H forever

B. Stefkova - M. Bouzkova - G. Pantuckova - P. Krejsova

C. Garcia - S. Halep - N. Osaka - E. Vesnina - M. Keys

Re: Fed Cup 2017, World Group 1 SF: USA v Czech Republic

So I can see a situation where Coco loses both her rubbers, but Rogers wins both of hers (unless Katka or Marketa peak). Which will bring it down to doubles, and the Czechs will easily lose that one.

So yeah, USA. But it's a toss up.

Victória (2) ~ Aļona (1) ~ Garbiñe (2)

Bacsinszky, Bellis, Dodin, Garcia, Osaka
Stephens, Venus (7), Vondroušová
Love/hate: Vandeweghe, Svitolina

Re: Fed Cup 2017, World Group 1 SF: USA v Czech Republic

Should be Lauren and Shelby for singles and Coco and Beth for doubles.

Coco is awful on clay

Marketa instead of Kris Pliskova !

It will be very tough for CZE to reach the final with this team

USA is the favourite to reach the final

A lot of pressure for such a young girl with ZERO Fed Cup experience ...

We will see

Allertova should not be in the team for this SF ! She is in a big slump
