Question Fed Cup teams- omissions- why...

Firstly, congradulations to every player who was nominated.
Their are a few surprises and if any could help me fill int he gaps that would be great.

Belguim- Why aren't Kim and Justine playing? Sure I understand Kim is injured but why Justnie? Really disappointing, esp since they are the defending champions

Russia-where is Myskina & Likhovsteva? Why only 3 players? Nice to see Panova back in the team, sh is opfetm overlooked and is always willing to play (ie australia in the late 90's)

Agentina- Where is paola? She seems to have an on and off relationship with Fed Cup

Czech Rep- biggest surprize- Like the first round Bedanova, Hrdlikova, Chladcova and Gersi are all missing. I know last time Daja and Kveta were inj- is it the same this time? Still think this is a dangerous team though, young guns Benesosova, Koukalova nd junior champ Strycova are dangerous. On a side note- odd that Vanessa webb went back to the states after wimbledon for challengers but will return to europe for fed cup- good on her!

Switzerland- Where is Mikalian? I thought she had resolves issues with federation? Still a great team.

Sloevia- Again, like the 1st round Strebotnik is missing, ythis time with Krizan.

Ukraine-Vakulenko?

If anyone has any info on these players missing in actyion it would be most appreciated.

Thanks

Information on czech team:
Denisa Chladkova was ill (mononucleosis) and out of courts for quite a long time this year, so she is not in her best form and decided not to play this time
Kveta Hrdlickova is injured again (wrist injury, the same as last year)
Daja Bedanova is also injured, but there is still a chance of her playing (depending on her recovery)

Paola Suarez confirmed her participation after the doubles finals in Wimbledon, but then she faxed the argentinean tennis asociation to cancel.

The argentinean coach said he was clueless and the vice/president of the asociaton said this was the 6th time Paola did not participate in Fed Cup and it is not surprising for them.

But what was the real reason?? Only Paola knows
