Does she have a choice,then,or does it have to be someone who played fed cup within the last 2 years.I'd say Meghann,Granville,or Alex.Lindsay has already declined.

You don't have to have played Fed Cup, you only have to have made yourself available to play if you are chosen. With the possible exception of Amy Frazier who has some kind of long-standing issue with Fed Cup and so who may no longer make herself available, I'd assume that everyone else who the USA might consider sending is already qualified either through playing or through making themselves available to play.

Amy Frazier wouldn't qualify as she hasn't made herself available for the Fed Cup from 1996 onwards saying she wouldn't play on a team with Billie Jean King involved with it after being snubbed that year.

I guess Meghann Shaughnessy deserves a slot - she's always been prepared to play for the squad.

What happened was that there were a lot of injuries to the US team that year but instead of following the rankings and calling up Amy, Billie Jean King called up Jennifer Capriati who at the time was really struggling to make a return to the tour. Capriati (I think) lost both her singles matches, and Amy did indeed swear never to play Fed Cup for Billie Jean King again.

BJK started as Fed Cup captain in 1995. She captained the team in 1995 and 1996, skipped 1997, and then was captain again from 1998 until Zina took over.

Well..now that Zina is coaoch maybe Amy will get a chance to play in an early round next year :D

Basically I don't have the time to make things up and post them on an internet board so if you don't appreciate being given info on your favourite player then I'll not bother in future. :rolleyes:

The tie was back in '96 against Austria. Amy had won her two singles matches the year before against Austria and had agreed to play this tie as she was the second highest ranked available US player for the tie behind Mary Joe Fernandez at the time - Amy was around the top 20 at the time. At the last minute BJK dropped Amy in favour of a returning Capriati who had no results or form that season to justify a singles slot and Jenny went on to lose 6-2 6-4 to Paulus & 6-1 6-1 to Wiesner. It was then Frazier vowed not to play for a team with BJK involvement. BJK is still involved with the Fed Cup team.
