Playing it every other year and making it all at once like the Semi's and Finals used to be, would make it more valuable to players and motivate them to play more often IMO.

Re: Do you really really care Fed Cup?

Of course I care b/c my country have two elite WTA players but don't have any decent WTA tournament, so this is unique chance to see them in action against other elite players in Serbia. Same thing about Davis Cup. So this question is more relevant for members which countries is not TOP5 contenders for title in FED CUP (or Davis Cup).

But I must agree that format is completely outdated and wrong, and should be changed for sure in some kind of "WORLD CUP" format where TOP8 (or TOP16) nations should compete in big two-week event.... or something like that (despite this means no more actions in Belgrade).

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Re: Do you really really care Fed Cup?

I don't give a shit at all. New Zealand's fed cup team is a non-factor so .

Davis Cup hell yes though. As Nando is DC king.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

Ok maybe I exaggerated, but Nando's won the deciding rubber to give Spain the title the last two years (you conveniently forgot his straight sets dubs win w/ Lopez at the end of last year). He does his bit.

Re: Do you really really care Fed Cup?

It's boring. Not many of the top players play for there team. So it's really no use at having such thing.
