Re: Team USA's Fed Cup Thread-Christina to open against Yakimova at 1pm! Serena to fo
Update after Day 1 around the world. All matches are complete except USA-Belarus.
Russia, Czech, and Japan all lead 2-0 heading into Day 2. Serbia-Belgium, Italy-Ukraine, Slovak-France, and Australia-Switzerland are all tied 1-1.
If USA wins, then they would go to the World Group Play-Off against most likely Spain, Belgium, Ukraine, Germany, Japan, Slovak Republic, and Australia.
The drawings are done based on rankings. The top 4 ranked play the lower ranked 4 teams. That means:
USA, Belgium, Spain, Ukraine vs. Germany, Australia, Slovak Republic, and Japan. Unless the rankings change after Sunday.
For once it would be nice to get a good draw, so here's to hoping for Japan or Slovak Republic.
If we lose (which at this point is highly doubtful) then world group II play-off would be calling.
China, Argentina, Great Britain, and Sweden have all qualified into WG II PO already. They will compete against Belarus, Slovenia, France and Switzerland most likely.
