the thing is
they are reducing the WG to 8

so the losers of the 8 matches of WG will form WG 2
so these playoffs were for WG 2 promotion if i understand.

ITF and another fine mess :o

that means the zone winners have to wait another year to be in the real World group?

Estonian team said just one thing. They hope they don't have to play against Japan or Australia. The main reason is, that when they have to fly to Japan of Australia they will lose 2 weeks instead of one. If the play-off would be in Estonia it would't matter agains whom they will play because every country in the play-off is a hard nut to crack.
