MARBELLA, SPAIN: Spanish captain Arantxa Sanchez Vicario find being captain far more nervewrecking than being a player, she admitted ahead of her team's Fed Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-off tie against Slovak Republic.

Her opposite number, Slovak captain Matej Liptak, shunned their label of being favourites for the tie claiming that it was very much a 50-50 chance of success. Liptak was, however, full of praise for his No.1 Domika Cilbulkova who reached the final of Barcelona a week ago showing good form on the clay.

Cibulkova was also reluctant to put her side as the more likely victors and called on the Slovak fans for their support to help them through.
