Andrea is nominated for doubles

No surprise. Petr Pala, non-plaing captain, nominated traditionally for singles matches in the opening round of the FED CUP against Australia Petra Kvitova and Lucie Safarova. On Sunday in Ostrava there will be doubles where Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka will play.

Duel is beginning on Saturday. Petra Kvitova will play against Jarmila Gajdosova. In following match Lucie Safarova will play against Samantha Stosur. On Sunday firstly Safarova vs. Gajdosova followed by Kvitova vs. Stosur. In doubles Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka, Czech H + H, will play against Casey Dellaqua and Asleigh Barty.

“It´ll be probably balanced. Australian team is strong. Their pair for doubles played really great on Australian Open. They got into finals, so I expected very hard fight. But I like that kind of matches,” Andrea laughed. If the duel is already decided after third game there will be directly doubles.
