And Papamichail can win singles since she may play Kajtazovic because I don't think Mervana still plays singles .

Eirini has also beaten players who Kontaveit can't. Eirini reached QR2 at two slams last year Kontaveit isn't at that level yet

And Estonia can't get Greece as Meelis stated, so have fun in G2 . We might be joining you there . And btw Papamichail is not that bad. She is 18 and top 400. I think she has a chance against a Bosnian
When Anett is 18, she will be top 100

Without the top 3 players, Anett would smash. She would have beaten Eirini anyway as Anett has smashed many players that Eirini lost to comfortably (Sabina Sharipova beat Eirini 63 61). Margit would win the other singles and then they would team up to win the doubles. I hope to god that Estonia gets greece. It's the only way we'll stay in.

Re: Europe/Africa Zone I 2012

Is it already known which matches will be broadcast by TV?
I mean, Radwanska is the only star on this tournament (besides local stars Peer and Glushko) so her matches should be streamed I guess.

Should, could would... Even if we do we also need to play NL and GB just to think about the play-offs.

Perhaps I am strong in my beliefs but you have to admit that Portugal would be the favourites if it wasnt for the israeli crowd. Eirini georgatou may beat kontaveit, but i wouldnt be surprised if she lost. And greece will not beat bosnia. They just dont have their players. And by the way, did Gerasimou either get anned or retire because she hasnt played since 2010

No I don't.
Even in a major slump, Shahar is a clear favorite against Michelle anywhere and on any surface. Not saying an upset is impossible, but unlikely.
And Koehler may be in better form than Julia, but that would be a 60-40 match at best on neutral ground. Here, the crowd probably makes Glushko the favorite.
The Portuguese wouldn't be favorites in doubles either no matter where it was played.

As for Greece-Estonia, I'm not knowledgeable enough to commment, but I will say that you may be expecting too much out of Kontaveit.

You are biased thogh because you are israeli
And anett has played 3 players in the top 200. All where at career highs and had come off great results. They were Stefanie Vogt in Glasgow (career high), Amra Sadikovic in Helsinki (just won a 50k beating some top players) and the third was putintseva in juniors (had just won eddie herr and was in orange bowl final). Anett beat Putintseva 6262, Sadikovic was 36 63 63 sadikovic but anett was 3-0 40-0 in 3rd set and against vogt, 64 75 included set points in the second set and break points at 4-4 on vogts serve first set. Despina Papamichail is only ranked so highly because she plays a lot of tournaments. Kontaveit played 9, and won 3. She woudl beat Papamichail 2 and 2 or something along those lines
