Fed Cup

Does anybody know when the British team is going to be announced. I expect it to include Elena, Anne, Julie, Lucie & Jane. But with other commitments other players might get a chance, e.g Sarah Borwell.

Good Luck to Team GB, whoever you may be.

you are only allowed to take 4 players at this level.

So probably:

Anne for singles
Elena for singles
Elena and Julie for doubles

then one other player, either Lucie or Jane.

As it's clay, probably Jane.

As Elena seems injured i'd say the team will be

Anne
Jane
Julie
Lucie

Anne and Jane for singles and Julie and someone for doubles.

I didn't think that Elena's injury was that bad, I hope she isn't out for too long.

P.S Do You like my avatar?

Who will play in singles and doubles next week; taking into account performances in Biarritz!
Elena & Anne/Jane for singles
Elena & Jane for Doubles

Julie's form is just too poor, but she will probably play.

julie and jane will probably take the doubles honours if Ballie isn't 100% fit, if she is, and our survival depends on it, Julie and her will probably play doubles.

This is Jane's first fed cup appearance, so i'd be surprised if she was involved in a live rubber, although Nick Brown is her coach ......

We best hope that Elena is fit then.
How many teams are in a group and how many teams from that group go to the next stage?

Good Luck in Estoril Team GB!!

Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.

Here's Britains Group;
Poland
Great Britain
Hungary
Ireland
The Netherlands

That's not too bad, actually I think it is a very good group, Britain (if they perform well) can do well!!

Hollands player form isn't too good.
Ireland, well I didn't think we'd draw them.
Hungary have a good team, who will probably beat GB.
Poland, hopefully Britain could beat thm

So that must mean;
GB v. The Netherlands
Baltacha (157) vs. Oremans (176)
Keothavong (169) vs. Boogert (185)
Baltacha/Pullin (417) vs. Oremans/Boogert (210)

GB v. Ireland
Baltacha (157) v. Liggan (224)
Keothavong (169) v. Doyle (335)
O'Donoghue/Pullin (404) v. Liggan/Doyle (351)

GB vs. Hungary
Baltacha (157) vs. Mandula (78)
Keothavong (169) vs. Kapros (120)
Baltacha/Pullin (417) vs. Mandula/Gubacsi (148)

GB vs. Poland
Baltacha (157) vs. Sakowicz (267)
Keothavong (169) vs. Domachowska (351)
Baltacha/Pullin (417) vs. Jans/Domachowska (514)

Good Luck Girls, You can do it

My predictions;
GB v. The Netherlands 2-1
Baltacha (157) def.Oremans (176)
Keothavong (169) def. Boogert (185)
Baltacha/Pullin (417) lose to. Oremans/Boogert (210)

GB v. Ireland 3-0
Baltacha (157) def. Liggan (224)
Keothavong (169) def. Doyle (335)
O'Donoghue/Pullin (404) def. Liggan/Doyle (351)

GB vs. Hungary 1-2
Baltacha (157) lose to. Mandula (78)
Keothavong (169) def. Kapros (120)
Baltacha/Pullin (417) lose to. Mandula/Gubacsi (148)

GB vs. Poland 3-0
Baltacha (157) def. Sakowicz (267)
Keothavong (169) def. Domachowska (351)
Baltacha/Pullin (417) def. Jans/Domachowska (514)

This is what I think should happen, but things never happen as you would like.
