Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6
What are your thoughts on Caro and the 2016 Olympics? I know this is way ahead in the future, but this is something Caro will have to consider right now because the rules states that Caro must play Fed Cup at least two times during 2014-16 in order to participate at Rio.
Denmark are at the bottom Fed Cup level rigth now (group III, which is the fifth level at Fed Cup). Denmark played a promotion playoff match against Liechtestein today but lost in spite of a good fight.
The level here is ridicuosly low; most of the nations including Denmark didn't have any ranked players on their teams. Ireland does have one ranked player, Amy Bowtell, ranked #500 or so, but she wouldn't even waste her time playing here. Norway and Cyprus sent junior teams.
What I'm saying is this: Danmark are also playing at this level in 2014, and the way things are going, probably also 2015. Should Caro say fuck the Olympics, or should she really go and play for Denmark against nations like Kenya, Armenia, Malta?
Finally I must to give some credit to the Danish players this week. There are two ranked Danish players, Woz and Barbat. Woz doesn't play Fed Cup, and Barbat has a knee injury. Still, the Danish team of unranked players did win both their matches against Namibia and Morocco 3-0. And Mai Grage made a huge upset by beating Stephanie Vogt of Liechtenstein (ranked #200 at WTA) in the playoff match for promotion. But unfortunately Denmark lost the other singles and the doubles match, so Liechtenstein got the promotion (well deserved, I have to say, with two top 500 players on their team).
