In singles, Chinese players are not in good form obviously, Na Li should be selected first, and the other one seems to be a big problem now. Jie and Shuai are all in terrible form now, so maybe it will be decide by their performence in Miami and tournaments after it.
Doubles, should be Zheng/Yan, if one of them plays single, it will be Li/Sun..
I think the team selection is probably realistically the strongest team China could field. I agree the choice of Li Na in singles is a given, she's fantastic. As much as I hate to say it, Zheng/Yan are probably in better form that Sun/Li, despite Sun/Li already winning a lesser WTA tournament this year. However, I am gutted about Sun not being the second singles player, but that's jsut because I'm biased She seems to have a brilliant record in fed cup for China, so it's a shame she is excluded from both singles and doubles.
Hopefully Sun could play some WTA tournaments by herself to gain points whilst the team are away? Or will China insist she also rests and trains? That would be a shame, I think. If anyone knows what the plans are, please share
