Re: Fed Cup play-off for WG II place v. Romania, April 22-23
It's a different situation from the Euro-African group. We're underdogs, plus there's no need to worry about avoiding relegation if our top player turns her ankle in the first match, so there's not a lot to lose and no need to pick a third singles player just in case.
That said, I'm afraid that our best team might be Konta, Watson, Konta/Watson, which, if Anne agrees, gives her two free picks, but is there anyone available who would stand a chance against Begu or Niculescu in singles? I don't see a better choice than Rae/Smith.
