I think it is the only tournament when Norway - richest country in the world will play in the same league as Rwanda.

When Caro needs to play this to ensure qualification for the Olympics it's going to be fun.

Actually I think Norway played Rwanda at cricket once.

Players with WTA ranking per nation

Code:
Nation          players       rankings

Armenia            1             449
Cyprus             0
Denmark            2             10, 549
Egypt              3             757, 1020, 1059
Ireland            1             514
Kenya              0
Lesotho            0
Liechtenstein      2             205, 560
Madagascar         1             559
Malta              0
Moldova            1             729
Morocco            2             1102, 1135
Namibia            0
Norway             2             296, 1107
Rwanda             0
Denmark is without Caro, so they're basically on the same level as Armenia, Ireland, Madagascar, Moldova (ranking-wise). And much worse than Liechtenstein, Egypt and Norway. I can't see a promotion happening this year. Being a home team should benefit Moldova.

Denmark's team is Karen Barbat, Mai Grage, Maria Jespersen, Karina Jacobsgaard, Malou Ejdesgaard. Any news about the other teams (I hope Norway's Eikeri will be back from her injury)?

Re: 2013 Europe-Africa Group III

Norway's Team: Hedda Řdegaard, Melanie Stokke, Andrea Raaholt & Caroline Rohde-Moe.

Norway without their two ranked players Ulrikke Eikeri & Emma Flood! The participation of Caroline Rohde-Moe is also doubtful because of US College playoffs according to tennis.no

yeah, what a shame - And our 2013 team is without our two best (Ulrikke Eikeri and Emma Flood), so we might be kicked out of Fed cup all together after this year

There are some light in the dark tunnel as our federation has a co-operation with Belgium these days and Carl Maes is here frequently and very much involved e.g. in setting up the clubs.

The good side is that we can follow ANY player, so I'll stick to Nadal and Azarenka as "my" players Go Rafa

Liechtenstein is definitely the one to beat. Ireland is weak without Bowtell and same with Denmark without Woz, Norway without Eikeri and Armenia without Amiraghyan

Re: 2013 Europe-Africa Group III

Karen Barbat's knee has not healed, so Denmark's Team is without their two ranked players (Caro & Karen). Will be fun! At least it won't be Denmark's 3rd consecutive relegation

It seems like Martine Ditlev has been called in as a reserve player (my guesswork based on unofficial tweets). GL!
