Ajla needs to be replaced! She's horrible! She has no fights in her. She wasn't into it at all. Like wtf. No more Fed Cup for her. Sam would puts up better fight than her.

For Ajla, it's a bonus that Alicia will be at her side and can assist with any pressure she feels. She will never have had a crowd on her side so much as today's will be though.

It would cap off a true fairy-tale year for Ash and Australia, so I hope it has a happy ending.
Soundly beaten, end of her week end

Re: WWW: Fed Cup Final - AUS vs. FRA

ATom bombed really badly. She was completely overwhelmed by the occasion which she has done in the past. Didn't seem to play with any tactical awareness - kept hitting to Mlad's backhand, the serve was atrocious, poor placement on serve and during rallies, UEs everywhere. I feel sorry for her but other team members would've put up more of a fight.

It's Molik's fault more than Ajla's. Most of us knew some form of mental midgetry would happen.

To be fair Molik was never known for her strategic prowess

Re: WWW: Fed Cup Final - AUS vs. FRA

Barty Fed Cup stats

https://www.fedcup.com/en/players/pl...x?id=800158769

Singles: 11-1 (the loss was to Svitolina in 3 sets)
Doubles: 7-1 (the loss was to Hlavackova/Hradecka)
Total: 18 wins, only 2 losses

And she has won 15 rubbers (!) in a row now

Very very very impressive.


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

Re: WWW: Fed Cup Final - AUS vs. FRA

France leads 2-1 now !

Barty flopped, was nervous with many UEs in last 2 sets and lost 6-2 4-6 6-7 to Kiki

Toml vs Parmentier now at 1-2 in a Fed Cup Final

No idea what the captains thought. Should have been Stosur vs Garcia.

Australia will so lose this. France is the favourite now ...

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
