What Are The Chances That Kim And/Or Juju Will Decide To Play July Fed Cup v China ??

the World Group I Playoff Tie will be held in Belgium ... so this raises the possbility that Kim and/or Juju will actually play since they don't have to fly halfway across the world to do it

I reckon that Kim will certainly not play ... she will have just played Eastbourne and her last Grand Slam, Wimbledon and will be dying to get back to Belgium to get her wedding plans finalized.

I am really and that Juju will decide to play though ... she needs to play Fed Cup (or make herself available) once in 2007 or 2008 in order to compete at the Beijing Olympics and Sabine Applemans may convince her that she should just do it now and in the process, try to keep Belgium in the World Group. On the other hand, she will have just played Eastbourne and Wimbledon and her body is so frail now that I am not sure if she would put herself through 4 straight weeks of tennis

even if Juju plays, I feel China has a chance to win the tie if they send the team of Li, Peng, Zheng and Yan. Henin will be the favorite in singles against Li & Peng but Li and Peng do have chance against her and will be the heavy fave against Flipkens. If it comes down to the doubles, Zheng/Yan will prevail

Kim: 0%

Ju: 10%


stupid to put the fed cup the week after a grand slam event

I wonder what surface Belgium will choose... if Justine doesn't play, it might be clay...

You never know, remember last year Li lost to some Canadian player ranked 300 something in Rogers...

I am curious too. I don't know if I want justine to play or not.... I think China still has the edge even justine plays, but you never know.

Queen retires, but never FADE AWAY



simply justine henin

Why do China and Belgium have to play against each other? I think they have to play winners in the World Group 2 instead of squaring off each other.

How come people don't realize yet that Kim has loathed the sport of tennis for the past year ? Why would she play fed cup ? She just doesn't care anymore.

Perhaps neither of them will play.
What's more,I heard that Maes will be attending Kim's wedding so that she can't play this tie,too.
So mostly likely Flipkens and Wickmayer will play singles in July.

Justine's spokesman said that the door to Fedcup isn't closed. And Sabine already made it clear that she'll talk to Justine while RG. And yes, she said she will play the Beijing-card.

And since Justine isn't qualified for the Olympics yet and she's dying to defend her gold medal, I actually think she'll play the tie. That is, if she's healthy of course.

Allez.

she still has a chance next year... and I think she'd like to spend some time with the kids of her foundation, Justine's winners' circle, who are in Switzerland that week.

I hope Juju decides to play the first tie of 2008 to qualify for Beijing instead

it is better schedule wise (she can skip Charleston while she will never skip Wimbledon)

No way will Kim play, Justine looks like she might .
