Here are the first Fed Cup rankings, I used a similar system as I used in real life, just tweaked it a bit with points distribution etc.
Here's how it works, taken from the official website:
The Fed Cup Nations Ranking measures the success of all Nations participating in the Competition over a "rolling" four year period. After each round the ranking period will adjust and any results outside the adjusted four year period will drop off.

Recent performance is weighted more heavily: points from the second, third and fourth year of the Ranking Period will be reduced by 25%, 50% and 75% respectively. Therefore, 100 points would become 75, then 50, then 25 over the four years.

Ranking for 2007
Points
Team 2006 2007 2008 2009 Total
1. Netherlands 750 750
2. Italy 500 500
3. Canada 250 250
3. Slovenia 250 250
5. France 100 100
5. Great Britain 100 100
5. Indonesia 100 100
5. USA 100 100

Commit for your nation to play in Fed Cup!

According to the idea, the 8 team from last year play in the first round, the losers then play against the winners for group 2 clashes to earn participation in the first group next year. Group 2 is composed of teams new to Fed Cup this year.

Well committing here doesn't mean you'll get the to play, as the captains have the final word, just shows you're willing to play, as not everyone is.
The captain can be either someone players choose by themselves or the highest ranked player.
I don't have the time atm to put together a list of highest ranked players per country, so if anyone wants to do it instead feel free. :p

Estonia has only one player I think, Chris will play for Slovenia like last year, I don't know if Serbia has more than one regular player and I think China and Poland have enough players to be included.
So it should be:
World Group:
SLO
CAN
USA
ITA
INA (?? dunno if they have enough players this year)
GBR
FRA (?? same as Indonesia)
NED

World Group 2:
ISR
SIN
HUN
AUS

RUS (if they have enough players)
POL

SloKid
Apr 10th, 2007, 03:25 PM
We can have more than 8 teams in the second group, cause that can be played over two rounds and then the final qualifiers with the losing WG1 teams would be played in September.
Also byes in WG2 could be for example determined by the average ranking of top 3 players of that team or something along those lines.

and guys...
israel have 1 player in top 10(me 3#) 2 players in top 20(me 3# and tal1985 20#) 3 players in top 30(me 3# tal1985 20# and Yarden 25#) and 6 players in top 52 (me 3# tal1985 20# Yarden 25# Nir 49# Nave 51# and amirhendel 52#) israel have 10 players in TT!

Israel won't be in the WG1, maybe next year if you qualify.

France does and Indonesia has more than 1 ranked too, 1 active, so there is a chance they can get at least another player to play.
I don't see why should Israel be privileged.

Actually I do mind, I don't see why ppl should be able to choose the country they want to represent just like that, at least try to bring a valuable reason (like French origins, a French buddy, a particular interest for France or whatever).
