BRATISLAVA, SLOVAK REPUBLIC: It might have come as a surprise that Jelena Jankovic was left out of captain Dejan Vranes' opening day line-up, but the former world No. 1 defends her skipper's choice by citing her country's strength in depth.

She is just one of the players looking ahead to this weekend's mouthwatering clash in Bratislava. Slovak Republic's Dominika Cibulkova thinks the calibre of players on show is good enough for a Fed Cup by BNP Paribas final, while Serbia's Bojana Jovanovski is confident she can defy the rankings and earn her team a crucial point in tomorrow's opening rubber.

Both captains reflect on their opposite number's decisions and Ana Ivanovic reveals that she is desperate to follow in the footsteps of her countrymen, who won Davis Cup in Belgrade last year.
