Els Callens has already beaten all of them in singels (except Navratilova, but she won't play singles.)

And maybe Kirsten can pull off a stunt

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I think we have a fairly good chance to qualify!

Els Callens can be very solid in Fed Cup and she beat Stevenson and Shaughnessy in indoors a few weeks ago.
The double will be difficult to get, but I think Kirsten can win one of the singles matches!

you are right, but I like to be pessimistic when it comes to tennis, so you can't be disapointed afterwards

It rather depends on who ends up playing singles & doubles for both teams. I think both Callens & Flipkens have a pretty good chance against Stevenson, but there's the possibility that Raymond will play at least one singles match as well as the doubles and she's a much more solid player. If the Belgians go down the rankings, then Callens & Maes will play singles rather than the (to my mind) better combination of Callens & Flipkens. Flipkens may be young, but she has more potential to upset the Americans than Maes.

Whatever happens, I'll be very suprised if Navratilova/Raymond don't win the doubles.
