Slovakia captain Mojmir Mihal will definitely be able to call on Dominika Cibulkova, Magdalena Rybarikova and doubles specialist Janette Husarova for the clash in Brno on February 2 and 3.
But he is still sweating over the participation of the country’s star player.
Hantuchova told www.tenis.sme.sk: “I had a hard programme in Melbourne - physically and mentally - so I am tired.
“Another thing is the problem with my injured heel. I was seeing the doctor throughout my stay in Australia because of it.
“I am hoping for some kind of a miracle which will improve my condition.
“Everything is up in the air right now and I will probably decide shortly before the match in Brno.
“I do not want to play, for example, only one match in Brno. I want to play at 100% in every match I will play there. On the other hand, I have to be 100% sure I can play at full pace.” Sporting Life
