Fed Cup R16 & QF Chat Thread

Hey guys - the first round of Fed Cup will follow the Bangalore tournament next week.


Teams:-

Argentina
Dulko (captain)
Salerni

Slovakia
Cibulkova (captain)
Hantuchova

Serbia
Ivanovic (captain)
Jankovic

Russia
Dementieva (captain)
Safina
Kirilenko
Sharapova
Chakvetadze
Petrova

USA
S.Williams (captain)
Davenport
V.Williams
Capriati
Harkleroad

France
Golovin (captain)
Dechy
Mauresmo
Rezai
Pierce

Switzerland
Schnyder (captain)
Hingis

Australia
Moore (captain)
Stosur
Dokic

World 1
Peer (captain)
Szavay
Olaru

World 2
Vaidisova (captain)
Wozniacki
Radwanska
Muller

I automatically put the highest ranked from each country as captain, and hope this is OK. All captain has to do is post the order of players for singles, doubles and reverse singles.

From the 7 players without a compatriot, would be good if they could make two teams between them.

The seedings will be based on the rankings of each team's top 2 individuals following the tournament in Dubai

Serena, you may be the captain but I think we both know Lindsay will be making all the decisions.

Re: Fed Cup R16 Thread

When will the draw be made and is there a deadline date to post the order of the players for singles, doubles and reverse singles.

Re: Fed Cup R16 Thread

To be fair, depending on if the rankings change dramatically, it will be the highest ranked from each country who will captain, so it's not set in stone just yet, but is likely to remain the same! After Dubai will need the OOP for each country

Draw will be made based on Dubai rankings, and will be done once Bangalore has started. Will need the OOP posted by the end of Bangalore

Re: Fed Cup R16 Thread

Israel/Romania/Hungary will make a team of Shahar Peer, Ioana-Raluca Olaru, and Agnes Szavay.

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.
