NZ Fed Cup Team "Bombs" out against Hong Kong China


In a must win match to top their pool and advance to the final to meet the winner of the other pool for the right to move to Group 1 New Zealand loses to Hong Kong China.Marina Erakovic New Zealand's Top player and the highest ranked player by a country mile in the event did not play in the tie.

One can only speculate events that lead to her omission? Erakovic playing would of assured the team a win.

Fanning lost to Chan who is ranked 357 and Hayman lost to Ip who is WTA 711.Erakovic is WTA 74.

We await patiently the match report. I am sure TNZ was hoping of some good news from the Fed Cup Team on top of the recent Davis Cup debacle unfortunately the News is all bad!

Erakovic on slippery ground.
The New Zealand number one faces a break from the game after dislocating her thumb when she slipped on a hotel floor. Erakovic will fly back to New Zealand to receive treatment.And so ends New Zealand's chance for promotion.

  2. I heard she slipped on a Pavlova and to make it worse there was some Bryce on the floor.

  3. Once they lost Erakovic it was over for NZ.Look at the stats there were only about 6 players out of 11 teams that had any WTA points.After Erakovic the highest ranked player was around 357 , this is a pool of no names, this can only showcase the depth of Women's tennis in New Zealand , without Erakovic forget ever getting out of this group.

  4. Comedy capers that can only be associated to New Zealand Tennis, you lose your best player not even making the tennis court!To sustain the injury at the hotel is bewildering!

  5. It's a bit harsh to blame Erakovic's injury on Tennis NZ or anyone. It was an accident which is unfortunate and bizarre in the fact it happened in the hotel, not the tennis court, however that is what occurs in life.

      Totally correct, accidents happen, what was not an accident were the players that stepped up ...simply not up to it in a mediocre pool and division, such is life with tennis in New Zealand.

    2. There is a long list of people working[ should I use that word?] for NZ Tennis with strange titles it's confusing who to talk to , if by luck you do get connected they inturn will transfer you to another person, and so on and so on!, got a spare half hour give it a go!, Jeff Auckland.

  7. Hello ,
    I have just been through a few of your posts
    i am just wondering
    how are you helping this situation you speak of that tennis nz having
    i personally know who you are and know you have done nothing to help tennis NZ at all yet you are judging them
    if you had created a top 100 player then for sure i would respect your decision but you haven't
    you haven't created a world ranked player mate
