Does anybody know why is it so complicated, and not easy like Davis Cup????

We have America 1, and America 2......... if (for example) Bolivia loss to Venezuela, they play America 2 in 2005.
And they play in one of these countries, 2 singles friday, 1 doubles saturday and 2 singles sunday.

To keep the level of playing field even. Canada is not good enough to make World Group, but Canada shouldnt play against Jamaca where even a ranked WTA is hard to find.

Poland but a close loss
too bad Joanna has to lose so much.

I hope we will be able to beat Bulgaria. but it will be a tough task and a lot of pressure on Karolina and Klaudia/Alicija. I know Sesil will beat Joanna 6-1 6-2, so I certainly hope we can win the other matches!
