The ITF just announced a future plan to hold the finals of the Fed Cup and the Davis Cup at rotating neutral sites.
US Open finalist Karolina Pliskova who will play for the Czech Republic when they visit France in the Fed Cup final in November, doesn’t like the idea.
“To be honest, I think it’s I don’t want to say stupid,” Pliskova said from Wuhan Sunday. “For me it looks stupid because there is always the chance that it’s in one country, and always the fans and everything can be on one side.
“If, for example, Czech and France, we play in Russia, I don’t see any reason why we would go there. Of course, with the people there, there would not be any fans. And the sponsors. For me doesn’t make any sense, but let’s see.”
Pliskova won her opening round match over former French Open finalist Lucie Safarova. She awaits the Laura Siegemund-Dominika Cibulkova in the third round.
In her first match since reaching the US Open final, the 24-year-old lost in the first round of the Tokyo event last week.
“I was home about five, six days. I just took off about four days,” Pliskova said of her post-US Open routine. “I just, you know, saw my family, enjoyed a little bit the time home. Obviously I had some media stuff to do, as well.
“Then I went to Tokyo, where it was raining the whole week. I didn’t have a chance to practice much there. So I just came earlier here and practiced two days. Everything is back and set and I’m ready to play a tournament again.”
