there can only be one at most. WG2 losers can't play each other, they must face one of the teams that's moving up

There's no provision in the rules that say that!

The seeded teams have not been decided yet.
Normally, the comitee selects the seeds one day before the draw. They may be all 4 WG2 losers, but it's not automatic.

intresting observation.
it seemed as though asia was blooming, but of course so many top players are missing in the fed-cup tourny.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
