Kveta Peschke instead of Andrea Hlavackova?

I'm guessing someone chose end of year vacation vs. Fed cup. Any ideas?

It's not unusual for the highest-ranking doubles player to be chosen for a Fed Cup team.

Whoops, I did a quick web search and didn't realize that she was the #2 ranked doubles player. Thanks for the correction!

And they got to the final with Iveta and Barbora--plenty of good Czech doubles players!
