I saw on teletext Japan didn't show up for their tie. Is that true?
If it's true, I suppose Colombia is trough to the world group right away?
What will the consequences be for Japan? If I were WTA/ITF I would suspend them!

Yes, it´s right. Columbia will be in the world group next year.

do you know why Japan didn't show up, and when did Columbia know this?

It has been known for a couple weeks thery wouldnt show up.
:bounce: Colombia is in :bounce:
They were worried about the japanese players safety, and filed an appeal to the ITF. But the ITF stated that it was ok to play because an event is held in that city every year without any problems(copa colsanitas-tier 3).
