Fed Cup: Warrior Princesses

Posted by gauloises1 on April 26, 2010

A little shout-out to some of the performers of the weekend.

How about Fed Cup debutante and recent Australian Anastasia Rodionova, who came back from a bagel to defeat Alona Bondarenko and take the legs out from under the Ukraine team?

Or little Bojana Jovanovski, who beat Magdalena Rybarikova to keep the tie alive?

Sam didn’t face the highest quality of opponents, but gets the nod for delivering two singles points for her team under pressure.

Daniela Hantuchova beat Jovanovski, notched up another victory over JJ in the singles, then teamed up with Magdalena Rybarikova to clich the tie in the doubles. Good girl.

And my lovely Wicky, after being effectively demoted for the comebackers, turned out to be the heroine. She did what Henin and Clijsters between them couldn’t and took two singles points, clinching the tie for Belgium.

Poor Andrea Petkovic. She played so well against Parmentier and then upset Rezai for Germany’s second point, only for a woeful performance with Barrois in the doubles to lose the tie and leave her in tears.

It would be remiss of me, however, not to recognise the fact that Coin and Cornet put in a fantastic performance when it counted.

It would also be remiss of me not to call attention to the hotness of Nicolas Escude.

Consider it done.

    Sheesh, he is GORGEOUS!

    Thanks for the great round-up G, and a big round of applause for the name spellage (not that I checked it or anything). I’m sad how many names on this post I didn’t really recognize. But YAY LADIES!
