Re: Seeds Announced For Fed Cup World Group I & II Playoffs

@ China being unseeded ... I was scared that they would draw Czech Republic and have to play them on clay ... now that they are unseeded, the prospective opponents are all beatable, with the toughest probably being Austria if the tie was on clay

hope Serbia gets a good draw in World Group II

Re: Seeds Announced For Fed Cup World Group I & II Playoffs

Hopefully we draw Chinese Taipei or Ukraine as they are easily beatable teams and the choice of location will be chosen by a lot.
If we get Argentina, we play there. (Had enough of them in bloody Davis Cup)
If we draw Serbia, we better pray to fucking god Jankovic and Ivanovic are injured

That's not very diplomatic of you.

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze

I don't understand it.

So it can be possible a Spain vs China playoff (both losers last weekend) and one of them will stay in World Group? And it could happen an Austria vs Czech Republic playoff? (both winners last weekend)

That sounds kinda weird to me

rankings changed after weekend results
and they use new ranks for seedings.

same happens in Davis Cup.

Thanks Eggy

Though I find it extremely unfair for Austria

In every sport is always winners from a lower league vs losers from the higher league. Weird...

Re: Seeds Announced For Fed Cup World Group I & II Playoffs

We want to avoid an encounter between Australia and Argentina as I want both teams in World Group II next year.

Also hope that Germany can win their play off to rejoin World Group I.
