we can borrow you Świątek to take care of Danilović
Who is playing for Serbia? Krunia, Danilović, Jorović and Stojanović? Or they will have to use also Radanović?

Overall not much said, just things in general, but it seems like Ana is still bothered by that elbow...

Re: Fed Cup Croatia 2019

Thanks.

Well, I have almost given up on Konjuh anyway. Always (and long time) injured ...

Did Iva say why Martic (who was the best Croatian girl at Aus Open and played some good tennis there) doesn't play ?

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 2019

^^ According to Iva, Petra didn't have the off season that she wanted because of health reasons. Because of that, she also can't play too much (says Iva), so that's probably why she is focusing more on herself this year.

Re: Fed Cup Croatia 2019

Still very disappointing from Martic. She knows how badly Croatia needs her

Re: Fed Cup Croatia 2019

The other day I've seen a TV add about Fed Cup from Bath being broadcasted on one of British channels, but I suspect they'll only be covering ties of their own team and no one else...

Here we go, Konjuh vs. Buyukakcay is the first match. Good luck Anči!

Re: Fed Cup Croatia 2019

Ana lost in 3, but at least it was a good fight. Consdiering how early she is in her comeback, this is understandable. She missed out on a lot of break points and made quite a few doubles, but I believe she can get better with each match played, if health allows her to do what she wants on court.

Donna is playing Ozgen ATM, was leading 4:2 in the first, then she got 4:5 down (no break), before winning the tie-break. In the second she got to a 4:1 lead (single break), before Ozgen connected two games to get closer (4:3), but now it's 5:3 with Donna serving, so hopefully we'll get that equalling point soon.

EDIT: Donna won, 7:6, 6:3

Re: Fed Cup Croatia 2019

6:4, first set is in our pockets, along with the break in the second, 2:0

Sidenote... Jana should try to play more doubles, given her problems in singles, it might be beneficial for many reasons, help practice some game elements more, build back confidence with some wins and the whole "team" vibe on court... Just a thought.
