And where is Mirjana ?

I think Petra Martic will be chosen instead of Jana Fett
She is higher ranked, more experienced and useful for doubles

Mirjana did not play FC since 90s i think

Petra has 379 points
- 50 from AO and Auckland
=

329


Jana has now 223
- 13 from Ankara
= 220

But she plays two big ITF challengers in Japan (where in total you can win 270 points )
Let's say she has two QF there
it's 49 points

so she will be at 269

Then she has a chance to get some points at the start of the year
Plus at Aus Open

So who knows - maybe she will be ranked higher than Marta Petrić by the end of Aus Open

Re: Fed Cup 2016

yeah, Mirjana last played Fed Cup for Croatia in 1998 !!!

http://www.fedcup.com/en/players/pla...yerid=20009551

How does Mirjana want to play Olympics in Rio de Janeiro with no Fed Cup ?

I will create a poll. I thought about this also

I think Croatia has very good chance next year (with Mirjana)

If they were playing on the indoor courts in Budapest, Mirjana would have won it for the team!

Re: Fed Cup Croatia 2016

If Tetka Iva does not pick Jana now for FedCup, I'll find her (and Alka Vuica too).

Fed Cup Awards - Ones to Watch

The first in our series of end-of-season awards focuses on the future of Fed Cup by BNP Paribas. We have picked out seven potential future stars for their nations.

Ana Konjuh (CRO)

Ana Konjuh reached No. 1 in the Junior rankings almost exactly one month after turning 16 – an extraordinary feat.

Ana had a sensational 2013 on the Junior tour, winning the girls’ singles titles at the Junior Australian Open and Junior US Open, as well as reaching the semifinals at Junior Wimbledon and Junior Roland Garros. She also won the girls’ doubles titles at the Australian Open and reached the semifinals in the girls’ doubles at Roland Garros and the US Open.

Ana made her Fed Cup debut in 2013 and has an impressive record in the competition, winning 10 of her 12 rubbers. She lost her first singles rubber in the competition this year when she suffered a three-set defeat to Jorovic in the Europe/Africa Zone Group I promotional play-off.

Ana finished the year ranked in the Top 100 for the second successive year. She reached a career-high ranking in singles of No. 55 in June 2015 after collecting her first WTA title at Nottingham.
I hope Ana kicks ass in 2016 !

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: Fed Cup Croatia 2016

If we can believe Fed Cup website its Konjuh, Vekic, Martic and Jurak.

I would have gone with Lucic, Konjuh, Jurak and Vekic/Fett.


Well, its our federation and we all know how you get picked for everything in Croatia.
Enjoy partying with teen girls Iva

Re: Fed Cup Croatia 2016

I think Lucic doesnt want to play Fed Cup

And Martic is good doubles player, so Konjuh and Vekic singles + Martic/ Jurak doubles ... better than 3 singles players (Vekic, Konjuh, Fett) and one doubles (Jurak)

Martic Ljubicic Dimitrov Sharapova
Robson Giorgi Stephens
Federer Coric Sock Goffin

Re: Fed Cup Croatia 2016

Lucic canceled due injury last year. Anyone who has seen her match vs. Smitkova in the Australia needs no explenation.

Martic is useless, should have been Fett.

Re: Fed Cup Croatia 2016

Hit your head with a hammer tetka Iva
To pick Martić (injured, in the changing coach madness, without self-confidence, without brain) over Fett, just shows that tetka Iva should focus on meeting Severina (cuz Rozga is now a lady as she managed to get to the pants of one of the 2cellos boy), cuz she is losing this famous celebrities friendships to Sandra Perković. Or tetka Iva should stick to be a "rent me for doubles".
