Yes, that's true.

Japanese Team
* Saori Obata
* Rika Fujiwara
* Akiko Morigami
* Yuka Yoshida

Saori and Rika will be missing Indian Wells.

Spyro, is the Indonesian Team confirmed yet?

and the Taiwanese and the Chinese teams ?

For China, I guess there will be LI Na and LIU Nan Nan in singles. I wonder who else. For doubles I also wonder if LI Na + LI Ting will be playing or Jie + Zi who have been performing well in UK (and it's not over yet ).

And anyone knows where to be playedˇH

For Taiwan, I think Janet Lee, Su-Wei Hsieh,Chia-Jung Chuang will be playing. The last player may be Hsiao-Han Chao or Chin-Wei Chan, I hope it will be Chin-Wei, because her performance in doubles is very well.But I am really worried about Janet Lee, she has't played well recently,hope she can play well in Fed Cup.

Indian Team
* Manisha Malhotra
* Rushmi Chakravarthi
* Sheethal Goutham
* Sonal Phadke
Reserve: Radhika Tulpule

I'm surprised Sheethal got in before Radhika.
Kind of weak without Niru.

I think there's an article there about Indonesian Fed Cup and Asian Games team :

http://sport.mweb.co.id/berita/tenis...rticle_id=4939

Though it's in Indonesian, I am seeing some names there like :

Liza Andriyani
Diana Julianto

Wukirasih Sawondari

No name of Angelique Widjaja or Wynne Prakusya .

Would someone have more details?

The article is probably discussing the "other" players apart from the usuals, Wynne and Angie.

A pity Romana is injured and Yayuk not playing, because they seemed to have a good chance. However, they're still very formidable. Wukirasih seems quite a good doubles player (r/u Asian Champs). Pity she doesn't play much overseas tourneys.

It's been awhile since Liza Andriyani played Fed Cup. I remember she was the Number 2 player back in 1996 when Indonesia lost to Switzerland in a close battle.

Diana Julianto is probably the orange girl, like Angie was in the 1st series last year. Diana is overrated IMO. Her junior results haven't been that good, but I guess they must make use of whoever they have

I personally think Sandy Gumulya will be a better player than Diana based on results, but she's a couple of years younger.

- Wynne Prakusya
- Angelique Widjaja
- Wukirasih Sawondari
- Diana Jlianto (alt.).

Taiwanese team has been announced, too.

Janet Lee
Su-Wei Hsieh
Chia-Jung Chuang
Hsiao-Han Chao

But one problem is maybe Su-Wei can't get the visa which is to Guangzhou on time , so maybe Chin-Wei Chan will substitute her.

lin, that is not good news.

It will reduce Taiwan's chances greatly if Su-Wei doesn't play.

I'm surprised Hsiao-Han got chosen over Chin-Wei.

I'm disappointed that Hsiao-Han got chosen over Chin-Wei, I think the reason they choose Hsiao-Han rather than Chin-Wei maybe just because Hsiao-Han's ranking is higher than Chin-Wei.

I am not familiar with visa procedures between Taiwan and China . How much time does it usually take to get such a visa?

For how long has she applied for the visa already?

Because I haven't been to China, so I don't know.

If any Taiwanese knows it, please explain to me and Steveg, thanks.

Another bad news for Taiwan

It is confirmed that Su-Wei can't play Fed Cup because the visa, and Chia-Jung is injured so that she can't play Fed Cup, too. Chin-Wei will play Fed Cup, the other player hasnt been confirmed.

Since Su-Wei and Chia-Jung won't play Fed Cup, I don't expect Taiwan can play greatly in Fed Cup, just hope Janet Lee and Chin-Wei try their best.And I also hope Su-Wei can play Indian Wells and boost her ranking.
