Crazy to schedule the final so late in November again! Won't these folks ever wise up?

it's likely to be a second round France vs Italy in Italy
good luck to both of them and good luck also to Switzerland and Usa!

Just what Slovenia needed ...

On the good side, maybe this way we will get to see Monica and Martina (or at least a Williams or two, but I doubt they will play first round).

Vamos Argentina!!

This should be a very close tie, or at least ir should be, if Paola decides to play. Otherwise, Sugiyama will probably crush the lower ranked argentinian players.

that's ok for switzerland. spain might be tempted to play on grass. actually there is only one grass court because martinez always thumps patty on it, but has lost to her on clay, but considering there is only one grass court in spain it is not likely. it will be clay i would think, and it should be a great tie.

Justine already said she won't play Fed Cup next year (she is not even certain she will ever play the Fed Cup).

Kim will decide later.

So it's not a done deal Belgium will win the tie against Croatia.

Let's hope Kirsten Flipkens can make some waves on the tour, otherwise Belgium runs the risk of not staying in the world group, what is amazing if you take a look at the WTA ranking.
