Fed Cup 2006

Draw:

France* vs. Italy
Spain* vs. Austria
United States vs. Germany*
Russia vs. Belguim*

Its a good draw for France despite the quaterfinal being a bit of a tough matchup. They are lucky the US, Russia, and Belguim are all in the other side of the draw. Italy could potentially have a good team with Schiavone, Pennetta, Santangelo, and Vinci.

I'm assuming the French team will go with the regulars Mauresmo, Pierce, Dechy, and Golovin. Bartoli and Loit are potential fill-ins if need be.

Kwl someone starts this thread .
Yes the French Team is now with Russian Team the best and the French Team showed, without momo or Mary, that it could win and do great results ( 2004 Final with Nath and Tati ).

Tati will be out with an injury so she obviously will not be on the anymore, but she has said she will go to cheer for the team. The next highest ranked person is Bartoli so I suppose she will be the replacement?

Also we still don't know when Pierce is coming back for sure. She's missing Amelia Island and Charleston. After Bartoli, Razzano and Loit are the next highest ranked. Virginie is ranked three spots higher, but Emilie has been playing better this year and is probably better on clay.

If Pierce doesn't play and all of Italy's players show up, this could get interesting

Nathalie and Marion will show this week in Charleston what they're able to do actually on clay . Marion will face Peng and Nath has a Bye in the 1st round .

Things are not looking the brightest for the French team Such bad luck Mary & Tati are injured at the moment

But I hope with Momo's and Emi's experience + Nath should wake up by now.
Marion on the other hand is a little mystery what to expect from her,as she's been irregular this season.And what about Razzano?

So has the team been anounced yet? Who do you think is set for singles,besides Amélie?

Anyway,for selfish reasons,I want them to advance,as if they face Spain in the next round,I want to go watch the tie.But unfortunately,that still depends on a lot of things...

Marion would have been helpful for doubles or even singles, so I think her absence will hurt.

With team I'd go with:
1st singles: Mauresmo
2nd singles: Loit
Doubles: Mauresmo/Loit

I think Goven will probably start Dechy at 2nd doubles despite her bad form

Italy's team: Schiavone, Pennetta, Santangelo, Vinci. A very strong team!

Mauresmo should win her singles matches, but can either Dechy or Loit beat Schiavone and Pennetta? I doubt it. This tie will probably come down to doubles...
