Algeria
Armenia
Egypt

Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.

Re: Europe/Africa Zone Group III 2009

Good luck Ireland, we actually have a chance of qualifying Dillon should win against most of these players although hopefully we avoid Greece

Jelena Jankovic | Jelena Dokic | Conny Perrin | Kelly Liggan | Vita Diatchenko | Irini Georgatou
Domachowska | Bacsinszky | Cirstea | Halep | Chala | Baltacha | Antoniychuk | Naydenova

Beth Mattek-Sands Georgie Stoop

Come back soon Tati

So, we were always in EA G1. In 2004, we hosted it, and Eleni played. In 2005, we were still in G1 and Eleni didn't play, so we got relegated (by then Papadaki, Kipritidou and Zachariadou were retired, so we didn't have a great team). Then, in 2006 we stayed in G2. In 2007, we lost to Portugal in the promotion play-off. Last year, we lost to Turkey in a relegation play-off tie (we should've crushed them but w/e). Now, in 2009 it is our first year ever in G3 and after 5 years Daniilidou finally decides to return to Fed Cup. Where was she when we needed her though? Now, even without her we would still dominate this group, but it's nice to have her

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Greece and Norway should advance as Eikeri seems to be promising.

Greece and Finland in one pool
