glad to know that Asia / Oceania Groups I and II will be held the same time as other groupes on April unlike this year in March :)

Next year Janet can gain some doubles points in Indian Wells :D.

Also it will be in Japan which there will be 2 $50K events after this :)

Asian Fed Cup clashes with the $25K Korean Challenger, which is not good for the players. I'm sure the challenger'll be moved to another week, and hopefully too. ;)

Good to see Vietnam participating for the 1st time. :)

Vietnam will not go to Japan :( . Not good for a first participation :rolleyes: .

I don't like besides that the Fed Cup takes place right after the $25K in Hochiminh City. Several players will be busy training with their team :( .
