Week 45 - 2022 BJK Cup Finals - Glasgow, UK, Indoor Hard


Harriet has played Elena twice before. Elena won by retirement in Istanbul in 2018, and won in three in Eastbourne in 2021.

No the other option would be to bring Jodie onto the team if Katie and Heather are both carrying injuries.


 Could have possibly had Jodie in the squad rather than Heather or as well as, and not selected both of Lissey and Olivia. ( given the injury concerns ). But I'd still condider Katie B the best option and it was probably gping better than it would have ever been likely to with Heather or Jodie.

And to fair to Katie she is almost going beyond reasonable call to dury given her history with injury at the Fed Cup. 


 Yes that's why I would rather she be rested and get well for next year. Katie is probably my favourite GB player and I agree that barring Emma she has the highest level out of our girls. She just looked taped together and tired today

 Are you heading up to watch the Spanish play, Mr B?

I am indeed Jon. Got tickets for tomorrow and Thursday, but have a bad feeling that GB vs Spain will be a dead rubber.

This week for Harriet is rather reminding me of all those years ago when Katie O'Brien ended up being #1 during Fed Cup week and found herself while ranked in the 80s having to play Schnyder, Szavay and Wozniacki back to back.

She's getting destroyed here but hopefully Badosa will help her out a bit more with some off the boil moments.

Unbelievably well, they've got 64 points from their last 32 league matches stretching back to January, so exactly 2 PPG for an extended period of time.

 

With the rise of Eddie's Mags and Paula going off the boil, I've definitely been moving away from tennis these past few months, but I didn't want to miss this with it just being a couple of hours away, and very little tennis here north of the Midlands.

Harriet got herself into the second set with typical dogged determination but was broken from *40-15 at 4-4 (another ill-timed double at *40-30 really didn't help...) and that was that. Don't think she was threatening to turn the match around entirely but would have been interesting to see Rybakina under some actual pressure - she wasn't exactly convincing serving out the match.

GB lose 6-1 6-4 and the tie is gone. In theory we could still win the group if Spain win tomorrow.

Hopefully Lissey and Liv can play with some freedom.

Nice to have commentary for this one. Laura absolutely singing the girls praises too which is nice.

Were a break down at 2-4*, recovered to get a set point at 5-4* deuce but Olivia couldn't control the return.

6-5*

Good fun match so far.

Great play to 30-0*, followed by two missed returns. Come out on top in a super rally to get 2 set points. HUGE double from Danilina.

7-5 *0-0

Very good.

Now, being greedy,l ( and I know overall we remain big underdogs ) but if Spain beat Kazakhstan tomorrow, theoretically it could yet help down the line if the girls can win this match in straight sets. Coming out 1-2 in matches and 3-4 in sets would be better than 1-2 and 3-5.

0--3 and 2-6 and we'd be stretching theoretically still in it to the absolute limits. Basically we'd be stuffed.
