Re: why does romina oprandi keep switching allegiance

It means there are 2 years long intervals when she can't play Fed Cup, and she probably doesn't want to play Fed Cup. Or she has an identity crisis every once in a while and can't decide if she's Swiss or Italian.

Definitely the identity crisis.

Do no harm, but take no shit.

Re: why does romina oprandi keep switching allegiance

You all have no idea.
She is Swiss, speaks Swiss, was born in Bern. But when she was raised representing Switzerland, the Swiss had Hingis and Schnyder and didn't really care about Romina. She went to Italy because she felt neglected and came back when the Swiss had focused on raising more starlets than just two.
