where will the FEd Cup final be...

Slovakia, Spain, Italy or Austria?

Each nation has a good arguement to have it their.

Spain- Fed cup pwerhouse over the last decade- however, it hosted the finals last year

Austria- Tour in LINZ prev week, so easy for players

Slovakia- Tour 2 weeks before- but smaller nation (which I don't think is bad) but may play against them

Italy- On the other hand hasn't had an event recently- many venues to choose from- but maybe a lack of support?

It would be safe to say that it will def be indoors, Spain- prob Barcelona or Madrid, Slovakia Bratislava, Austria, Vienna, Linz or Salzburg, Italy- Anywhere form ROme to Madrid to perugia...

Any one else's thoughts?

When does the ITF announce/

If all teams were Full strength, who should win?

They will announce it before the end of August.

I hope it's in Spain, but this would really surprise me...

monster, Madrid in Italy?

Final decision will be taken at the end of August and only Italy (with Genova as hosts) and Austria have applied for it.

I hope it's Italy who gets it as they would probably choose indoor clay as they simply can't beat the Slovaks on carpet.

I thought it was Milano, but Genova ? Wherever is okay, if it's in Italy. Probably I'll go to cheer for Slovak team( sorry, not Italy... There isn't Tax, but there are Janette & Martina Sucha in Slovakia).

Hi,Lindsayfan !! Thanx in Palermo Now I'm in Tokyo and am back to Italy on 30.

RECIPE FOR SUCCESS

To laugh oftern and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children;
to earn the appriciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appriciate beauty;
to find the best in others;
to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived.
This is to have succeeded.

I also heard that of the Canary Islands, but it was also said last year, so I don't know.

Any news on the venue for the semis/final yet, as I thought it was going to be announced in August?

They said they would announce it by the end of August. So I suppose it will be decided on the 31st!!!
