Cool Jankovic, Schnyder Head Fed Cup Offical Zonal Nominations

World No. 9 Jelena Jankovic (SRB) and No. 16 Patty Schnyder (SUI) head the line-up for the Fed Cup Zonal Group events that take place during the week of 16 April alongside the Fed Cup World Group and World Group II first round ties.

Sixteen teams will contest the Europe/Africa Zone Group I event in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, bidding for two places in the Fed Cup World Group II Play-offs. US Open semifinalist Jankovic leads the Serbian team, while Schnyder heads the line-up for 1998 runner-up Switzerland.

Former junior world champions Viktoria Azarenka and Michaella Krajicek lead the Belarus and Netherlands teams respectively, while sisters Agnieszka and Urszula Radwanska team up for Poland. Another pair of sisters, Alona and Katerina Bondarenko, feature in a strong Ukraine line-up boasting three Top 100 players.

Seven teams will contest Asia/Oceania Zone Group I in Christchurch, New Zealand, with one place available in the World Group II Play-offs. Thailand’s Tamarine Tanasugarn is the highest ranked player in action, with Chinese Taipei, India and Uzbekistan among the other leading contenders.

Gisela Dulko heads the Argentine team in Americas Zone Group I in Buenos Aires, which also offers one spot in the Play-offs. Colombia, Brazil and Puerto Rico also feature among the eight competing nations.

Eva is playing again?

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

Re: Jankovic, Schnyder Head Fed Cup Offical Zonal Nominations

the headline is really that Patty doesn't plan on retiring anytime soon because she's clearly wanting to get Olympic qualification.

Patty and Manu together again and maybe they will play doubles because i suspect Timea will play singles.

Why no Hingis for Swiss?

Reading thru that list, I read some familiar names. Players who I know wonder about where they've been. Good luck to everyone.

Venus Williams. Serena Williams.
