I just read that it is even INDOORS. Japan can't be so stupid and chose Maleeva's favourite surface....

Aiko has quite a task in front of her, but if Japan wins at least one of these singles matches they can surely beat the Bulgarians in doubles with Rika or AKiko in doubles!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Aiko!!!?????? She has not been that great in Fed Cup so far, she needs to get one of these matches....good showing against Maleeva though....All they need is ONE of these next TWO singles matches and I expect tyhem to take the doubles.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!
