don't think that there will be any website

Apr 23rd, 2002, 04:42 AM
GO POLAND!!! :D :D I'm so happy that Straczy and Sakowicz are playing. Zarska will be tough to call as will new-returnee Teodorowicz, but I'm sure they will give Grzybowska try. Jans is another bet as well. :) I hope Poland can win a match! Unlike last year! :sad: ;)

Apr 23rd, 2002, 05:12 AM
Jecmenica was listed on Yug. team, is this Tatjana Jecmenica who played the tour years ago as a teen and I believe was out to injury? Is she making a comeback? She was in top 100.

Apr 23rd, 2002, 03:36 PM

good draw for Estonia...if they play their normal quality 2-nd place is very realistic

and even Bulgaria isnt unbeatable.
good luck to Kaia and Maret :)

btw do anybody know playing schedule?


Apr 23rd, 2002, 07:00 PM
go Belarus :) & Natasha :kiss: :hearts:

Suprised Ukraine pickec Tatiana Kovalchuk, she hasn't played for ages.

Bulgaria should have gone for Maria Penkova over Radoslava Topalova.

My Picks

Group A : Belarus
Group B : Netherlands
Group C : Bulgaria
Group D : Luxembourg

can't believe Romanian team , its a joke
Mihalache, Ciochina, Balaci, Orasanu

Where are Raluca Sandu, Andreea Vanc and their hot prospect Edina Gallovits ?? :confused: :confused:

Apr 23rd, 2002, 07:01 PM

bad draw for Slovenia.

easy draw for Holland, Israel, Estland, Lux.b and Bulgaria. (who I think will win easy to be in playoff)

Apr 23rd, 2002, 07:10 PM

..i think only winner will go next stage. Correct me if i'm wrong.

Apr 23rd, 2002, 07:34 PM
On Saturday we will have 4 winners.

what I mean was, these teams I mention i think will be 1. or 2. in their group and play in the playoff on Saturday.

about schedule, tomorrow SLO vs UKR and GRE vs BLR

Frau Antje
Apr 23rd, 2002, 08:21 PM
the 4 winner will play in July for a place in the Worldgroup

Apr 23rd, 2002, 08:36 PM
Yes, I also think it's a very good draw for Bulgaria :D

Go Maggie, Radoslava, Dessi and Filipa :kiss: :kiss: :kiss:

order of play for Wednesday???

Apr 23rd, 2002, 08:42 PM
good luck to all the teams competing, but Bulgaria, Bulgaria, Bulgaria, I love thee.

aide fsichki bulgari, neya sme shampioni

good team bulgaria

maggie-:D a solid top 20 player been as high as #4 in the world,
dessislva T- a 21 year old prodigy, that has a big future ahead of her, she hits the ball really like a seles or capriati , really hard but has too many unforced errors once she learns how to control her unforced errors, i predict she is a future top 32 player. She is really beautiful. tall. she is 6'0 140 pounds, brown hair, blue eyes, loves her forhand.
Radoslava T- dessislava's 19 year old sister, who chose not to play any juniors, also tall, skinny, beautiful, not too much power but very good at net, i see a great future for her, she needs to play more tournaments only played 8 last year, if she commits we will see her in top 100 anytime now, the topalova sisters are very talented, they will be the next bulgarian trio in the top 50 at the same time or maybe even better.
filipa- a young prodigy dodn't know much about her, was a solid juniors player, compared to huber's game

Apr 23rd, 2002, 08:46 PM
Don't know the complete playing schedule for tomorrow, but I do know that Estonia is supposed to play Georgia. :)

Apr 23rd, 2002, 08:55 PM
I bet Georgia wish they had Anna Tchekvetadze as well.

interesting match-up GEO v EST

Kaia will win her match
Salome v Maret Ani, could be close but expect Maret to win in, Salome is very good but a little too young

Apr 23rd, 2002, 08:56 PM
Go Yugoslavia! :bounce:
