Re: 2015 Fed Cup, World Group 1 Play-Off: Netherlands v Australia

On paper Australia should win easily, but with Sam and Casey so low on form and confidence and Jarka nursing an injury it's less obvious who will prevail. I still think they will pull through, but I won't be surprised if it goes down to the wire.

I have tickets, so I'm hoping for a good show, of course with the Aussie girls winning in the end

Re: 2015 Fed Cup, World Group 1 Play-Off: Netherlands v Australia

On paper, just like last time the Netherlands are the underdog. It's quite remarkable how well they play as a team and how relatively bad they play individually, especially between the last meeting in February and this meeting. With Stosur and Dellacqua low on confidence they might pull of an upset, but as I said I won't be surprised if they lost 0-5 either.

They have maintained themselves in WG2, which is already a great achievement.

Molik is back in A'dam airport and Holland. I remember I saw her in A'dam in 1999, she did not play but was a member of the Aussie team..


I can't remember if she ever played in Rosmalen...?

Seriously, I wish I could support both teams, love 'em both.

The Aussie girls are my #1 though. Go Aussie Go!

Aussies should be victorious here.Dutch girls shouldn't be making too much problems to Sam,Casey & Jarka.
We'll see who will play second rubber.Alicia will chose the best I'm sure of it.

Anyways.Go AUSSIES

Re: 2015 Fed Cup, World Group 1 Play-Off: Netherlands v Australia

I think both teams are really likeable
They all (AUS and NL) seem like nice, friendly girls

AUS should win. But NL is dangerous. Their girls peak at Fed Cup
It could be a close tie because the AUS girls are not in their best form

I root a little bit more for AUS, because they have more quality
And I want quality (the countries with the best players) to succeed

And I have a soft spot for the AUS girls because they lost a tough tie to GER in Feb
The commentator also said only nice things about AUS girls, the captain and team

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."
