Hey PAWers :wavey:

Please committ for the Quarter Finals/Semi Finals and Play Offs (to be played 9th-10th July)

Quarter Finals (9th July):

Indonesia (1)............. v ............ Canada (6)
Germany (7)............... v ............ Great Britain (4)
Bulgaria (3).............. v ............ Israel (8)
USA ...................... v ............ Poland

Semi-Finals wil be played on the 10th July.

Play-Offs:

The draw is due to be made, but the following countries are participating, so please committ:

Hong Kong
Argentina
Thailand
Serbia & Montenegro
Russia
Brazil
Singapore
Australia
Paraguay
Portugal
South Africa
Croatia
Malaysia
Italy
Netherlands
France

Each country must have at least 2 committments in order to enter, and you must decide between yourselves who your captain is.

Please committ by 8th July at the very latest and choose your captains as soon as possible.

Next year there will be a World Group 2. Therefore the system will work like this:

The 4 countries who win the 2005 World Group Quarter-Finals will automatically qualify for the 2006 World Group. The 4 losing countries in the quarter-finals will play-off for a place in the 2006 World Group against the 4 countries who win their 2nd round of play-offs (17th-18th September).

The Play-Offs will have 2 rounds (Round 1 on 9th July, Round 2 on 10th July)and the finals on 17th-18th September.

The Round 1 Winners will play in Round 2, the round 2 winners will face the losing quarter-finalists of the 2005 World Group. The 4 winners from the play-off finals will be rewarded with the 4 vacant places in the 2006 World Group. The 4 losing countries from these matches will qualify for the 2006 World Group 2.

The 4 losing countries of the round 2 play-offs will also qualify for the 2006 World Group 2. The losing countries of the round 1 play-offs will be relegated to Zone 1 in 2006.

Simplified:

2006 World Group 1

The 4 semi-finalists of the 2005 World Group + The 4 winners from the 2005 play-off finals.

2006 World Group 2

The 4 losing countries from the 2005 play-off finals + The 4 losing countries from the 2nd round play-offs.

Zone 1

The 8 losing countries from the 2005 Zone 1 division + the 8 losing countries from the 2005 1st round play-offs.

I'm playing for Israel, of course...

andrew, could you explain how the game will work with 2 seperate ties over one round of matches??

andrew_uk
Jun 30th, 2005, 11:33 PM
The Quarter-Finals will be based on Saturday's matches and the Semi-Finals will be based on Sunday's matches.

It will be intense but it is the only way possible to be ready for the final in September :) :wavey:

nitsansh
Jun 30th, 2005, 11:38 PM
how many matches should we pick each day? from which ties?

there would be 10 ties played next week and I think that's too many... I would better do without G2 play offs...

nitsansh
Jun 30th, 2005, 11:43 PM
If I understood correctly... only the winners on Saturday will play on Sunday...

I can't resist such a flattering comment...

but I don't really deserve that credit... it was the combined efforts of the team that won the match against Brazil, whose captain and players were very good rivals...

Thanx. :)
Last year we were quite close, but we quite didn't do it.
You know, when I started playing, only matthias and (sometimes) Frongie was there. Then others came and also left again.
For me it was sure to leave after RG, but I will come back for FedCup. :) Only for that. :)

roxi - I think Rtael will be captain for Croatia.

Some countries are looking quite doubtful for the Play Offs - if no committments are received by the deadline, we will replace these countries with lucky losers from Zone 1 (the highest scoring losers).

All World Group Countries are now confirmed - the Play Offs have not received any committments from Brazil, Russia or Thailand yet :wavey:
