Why isn't Kristina Brandi playing FED CUP for Puerto Rico ?

I find it puzzling since she made it a point to change from playing for the usa to PR for the olympics...now she isn't even playing in Fed Cup..maybe the CHARMED ONE can help me out on this one ;-)
Don't you have to play a certain amount of fed cup matches to be eligable for the Olympics ??

Thanks!

It has me completely stumped beyond all possible reason why she didn't play for this tie. If she had, Puerto Rico would be in the World Group next year. But I think with out losses we might either stay in Zone I or sent back to Zone II.

As for Kristina, she already played 2 out of the last 3 years...so she qualifies for the Olympics. Either her INJURY is still a problem or she couldn't get to the venue in time to get ready.

BEST OF LUCK TO KRISTINA, and I hope that she comes back to Fed Cup Soon!

It really was too bad Kristina got injured. Vilmarie Castevelli was doing well but it was not enough for Puerto Rico to do any damage without Brandi.

Better luck next year.

Since Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States ("organized, but unincorporated"), why not allow them to be represented by and as part of the U.S. team?

Jakeev - I totally agree, Vilmarie is still making the transition from NCAA play.

JollyRoger - YOU ROCK :-p and don't worry Gigi will be back...ha! Who knows!

SelesFan70 - Puerto Rico is a Commonwealth, we are only 'associated', so we keep our sovereign rights...including International Representation.
