Japan vs Belgium Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

Japan are the slight favourites in my opinion as the home advantage will serve them well. A team that will not feature clijsters and maybe not flipkens, will perhaps haved to rely on van uytvanck or hendler for the second singles, as well as the fact the japanese are expected to be comfortable winners in the doubles

Re: Japan vs Belgium Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

Flipkens will most likely play
Yanina should win both singles, but Belgium might lose the rest

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: Japan vs Belgium Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

Japan will have? Morita, Date-Krumm, Fujiwara and Aoyama?

Im guessing thats the line up.

If Kimiko is consistent and it gets to 2-2, surely Japan will win the doubles with Aoyama/Fujiwara.

Fujiwara/Morita are the dubs team
They will probably also put in nara

Re: Japan vs Belgium Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

Yanina probably won't play. It's played on HC right in the middle of the clay season and of course it's a very long trip...

Re: Japan vs Belgium Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

Nara has more talent than Aoyama or the Sema sisters, but she's had a bad time with injuries which is affecting her game. Her straight sets Fed Cup win over Rampre in February might still give her a place in this team, though I hope she's feeling fit.

Hopefully Ayumi is feeling better now. Although you wouldn't believe it if you read GM, she WAS injured against Muguruza Blanco in Miami, she withdrew from Charleston and Kuala Lumpur, so I hope she's fit because Japan desperately needs their number one here.

Would LOVE to see a Japanese victory! Ganbatte!

Cibulkova. Cepede Royg. Konta. Peng. Safarova. Kvitova. Bacsinszky. Osaka. Wozniacki. Puig. Zhang.

She always plays FC though

Re: Japan vs Belgium Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012

Belgian Fed Cup team announced today.
Clijsters not playing of course, also no Yanina
Team will be: Flipkens, Hendler, Van Uytvanck, Mestach.

I guess that makes Japan the heavy favorites now
