Question Which Players Are Playing Fed Cup In April?

we are less than a month away from this year's first Fed Cup Ties ... besides Belgium, have any other teams announced their teams yet? The recent injuries to Lena Dementieva and illness of Amelie Mauresmo make them very questionable for their ties

World Group I

USA (confirmed: Serena Williams, Venus Williams, ?, ?) - I expect Perry and King to fill out this team
v BELGIUM (confirmed: Flipkens, Maes, Wickmeyer, Hendler)

RUSSIA (confirmed: Sharapova, Kuznetsova, Petrova, Dementieva (injured)) - if Lena is not healthy, will probably be replaced by Chakvetadze
v SPAIN (?, ?, ?, ?)

FRANCE (most likely: Mauresmo (injured), Golovin, Dechy, Bremond)
v JAPAN (most likely: Sugiyama, Nakamura, Morigami, ?)

CHINA (most likely: Na Li, Peng, Zheng, Yan)
v ITALY (most likely: Schiavone, Santangelo, Pennetta, Vinci)

France - If Amélie doesn't play, I think it'll be Golovin, Dechy, Bremond and Loit. Emilie tore up the clay recently

AMÉLIE ALWAYS

Re: Which Players Are Playing Fed Cup In April?

Mauresmo won't play the tie? Won't she be okay in a month?

If she doesn't play, though, Japan actually has a chance

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Re: Which Players Are Playing Fed Cup In April?

I don't know the Japanese team. You never know with Ai, she often enjoys giving up her place to give younger girls a chance, but now they are in the top group she should not be able to do this. If Shinobu was still here she would have taken the last place. My presumption is, since Ai and her will try to do the olympics Ayumi Morita will take the last place if they send Ai, Aiko and Akiko. Erika is the Japanese #4 though on rank

Re: Which Players Are Playing Fed Cup In April?

Healthy Venus & Serena equals total domination. I feel bad for Belgium. Ouch not Kim or Justine.

Russia looks very lethal

Re: Which Players Are Playing Fed Cup In April?

i guess that in the Italian team Garbin will play instead of Vinci.
So it will be Schiavone,Garbin,Santangelo,and Pennetta.

Vinci is their Doubles point in the bank, surely they won't drop her for Garbin?
