Safarova to open Fed Cup final against Ivanovic
Eighth-ranked Petra Kvitova, who led the Czechs to a 3-2 victory over Russia last year, will play Jelena Jankovic _ another former No. 1 _ in the second singles match on indoor hard courts at the O2 Arena on Saturday.
Kvitova has recovered in time from a viral illness that forced her to pull out of the WTA Championships last week.
“I feel very good. I practiced yesterday one hour and something and it was quite OK,” Kvitova said. “It’s a big end of the season, we play at home and I play for the team, for the Czech Republic and that makes me strong.”
“It’s very special occasion for all of us,” Jankovic said. “We’re all here to do our best.”
In doubles, the Czech pair of Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka, who reached the U.S. Open and Wimbledon finals this season, will play Bojana Jovanovski and Aleksandra Krunic.
