Top seeded Bulgaria was among 7 other nations who advanced to the PAW Federation Cup Quarter-Finals that will be played in July (after Wimbledon), when the WTA Fed Cup QF's begin. The other nations moving into the last eight were Australia, Indonesia, Argentina, Canada, Italy, Hong Kong and Germany.
Indonesia  d. Great Britain
The most versatile team in the competition – Indonesia, which currently possesses 3 top 10 players including the number one sandg, achieved the highest average total score amongst all 17 countries, to edge out a very gallant Great Britain whose performances from alwayshingis and andrew_uk gave the 4th seeds more than they could expect.
Germany d. Belgium 
The local derby in Brussels turned out to be some mismatch. With the Germans – in particular Matthias and Frongie (who both were 2 of the top 10’s best individual performers) producing a stranglehold on the tie after day 1. With better play from crazillo on day 2, the Germans ended up dominating the tie with a 45 point victory to complete a very satisfying weekend for the underdogs.
Italy d. South Africa 
The big shocker of the round, unheralded Italy came from practically nowhere to eliminate the 2nd seeded South Africa. After trailing by 16 points on day 1, the team captain marcobarella along with his charges – The Monarch Butterfly and late entry yoyoyoyo played with nothing to lose and were rewarded, finishing with a comprehensive 15.5 margin in Cape Town.
Australia  d. USA
Lack of preparation and team patriotism (their captain didn’t even show up!) cost the US team who were late arrivals in Townsville. Australia, steered by captain SpikeyAidanm swept past the Americans on both day 1 and day 2. The Aussies won by 35.7 pts and meet Germany next.
Canada  d. Israel
One of the closely contested ties of the round, the key stars for Canada’s victory were Canuck_Fan and captain polishprodigy. Israel were disadvantaged due to the late withdrawal of in form nitsansh combined with the rather lacklustre performances from both levos and PointBlank. Captain Nir said he was very disappointed with his team’s spirit.
Bulgaria  d. Singapore
Top seeded Bulgaria proved why indeed they deserve top status with a classy 39.8 triumph over the dangerous Singapore side. All around consistency was the secret to Bulgaria’s weekend, with Hantuchov, ghosts and bgbgbg all scoring highly. Je_ne_sias_quoi, the highest ranked player of both teams failed to adjust to the conditions in Sofia and was hampered by injury.
Hong Kong d. Croatia  & Serbia
Rookie Hong Kong shocked the PAW world with a stunning and comprehensive defeat over both Croatia and Serbia. Late entry jrm along with E.Dementieva and Edman all notched 100+ totals to bring the inexperienced team through to the Quarter-Finals.
Argentina d. Spain 
The most exciting of the round by far! The visiting Argentineans completed a 0.5 extremely narrow deficit over Spain, whose top player and captain bbypk performed outstandingly on both days. The solid temperament of Catriel along with the flashy AGUSTIN were the two key recipes for Argentina’s win.
