If Japan has Ai Sugiyama, Shinobu Asagoe, Akiko Morigami (Who is incredible in Fed Cup) and either Rika Fujiwara in doubles or Saori Obata and Aiko Nakamura....Japan will be as formittable as as any other team in WG II. If the best Japanese team shows up, they should get through to WG I without much problem, so much depth now. GO Japan!
China is also a big threat, I expect they'll get through! Thailand could get through with a good draw but Indonesia NEEDS Angelique Widjaja to advance any further...
Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!
