Re: Europe/Africa Zone I 2012

OMG Greece
Where's Gerasimou when you need her? . She won the National Championships again so she's guaranteed a Fed Cup spot but it seems she has had enough and didn't take it serious last year so it wen't to the runner-up, which was Stefanou...
And no Georgatou NO NO NO NO NO . I was afraid she wouldn't show up . I'm going to be so angry if we get relegated . She hasn't been seen since October and she withdrew from 25K Istanbul after the draw was made I hope she is injured and not retired . I tried contacting her on facebook and she didn't answer me and I asked Sakkari who has talked to me before and she didn't answer and I asked someone who runs a Greek tennis website who recently interviewed Eirini and he said he is trying so hard to find out and has no idea why she isn't playing . I doubt she retired because she just launched her official website and she played well last year when she wasn't injured and she takes her career very seriously. She trained at Mouratoglou's for a while and went on the Mauritius trip last year with Dokic, Cirstea, Wickmayer, Rezai, and Robson. And she was recently interviewed (by the person I mentioned above) and she talked about her future...I'm so stressed out now

Now we will once again be fighting to stay in Group I. I just hope we go into one of the groups with 4 teams so we can have a good shot at not having to go into a relegation play-off. Eleni should be able to beat Larcher de Brito, Tinjic, or Minella and then maybe Papamichail could surprise and if not then we can maybe win the doubles . Or hope to get Estonia and try and get Papamichail to beat Kontaveit and then win the doubles

Anyways, from the good teams in this group I think 2 of Romania, Poland, Great Britain, Sweden, and Croatia will go through. Romania really has no business in this group IMO. They have so many top 100 and top 200 players and they have been stuck in Group I for way too long. I really hope they can go through (plus I like most of their players ). It's a shame that Arn and Czink aren't playing for Hungary, otherwise they would also do well as Babos and Marosi are good players and they always have a good doubles team

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Europe/Africa Zone I 2012

Wait, why is Dulgheru in but not Cirstea?
And doesn't Sorana need to play for Olympics since she didn't play last year? Or does her Fed Cup service count for 2011 since she was on the squad and traveled to Eilat even though she didn't play at all?

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.

Re: Europe/Africa Zone I 2012

You dont have to play Fed Cup. Making yourself available for selection is enough.

Re: Europe/Africa Zone I 2012

Lucky group Sweden

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again

Re: Europe/Africa Zone I 2012

Worst possible group for Israel. I can't believe it - both NL and UK in our group it will be a nightmare.

Re: Europe/Africa Zone I 2012

Poland just has to beat Romania. However Radwanskas in doubles should beat anyone here with ease. Poor Croatia, I wish they were in Pool B.

That's assuming that the Netherlands beats Great Britain.

If grey Britain qualifies then Estonia will win! The British can't play doubles (thy barely beat wozniacki and some rando last year) so it would be kanepi and then kanepi and ruutel or kontaveit
