View Full Version : PAW Federation Cup PLAY-OFFS Draw and Committments

Jul 1st, 2004, 11:50 AM
Welcome to the PAW Federation Cup Play-Offs :)

Here is how it will work:

- The 9 countries that lost in the 1st round of the main draw in April will play eachother. There will be 4 matches, 3 will be contested between 2 countires, 1 will be contested between 3 countries.

- The 4 winning countries will then go through to the 2nd round of play-offs. 2 matches will take place, both to be contested between 2 countries.

- The 2 winning countries in the 2nd round of play-offs will go through to battle each other for 9th to 10th place. The 2 losing countries in the 2nd round of play-offs will face eachother to battle for 11th to 12th place.

- The 5 losing countries in the 1st round of play-offs will be drawn against eachother. 2 matches to take place, 1 to be contested between 2, the other to be contested between 3.

- The 2 match winners will go through to battle for 13th to 14th place. The 3 losers will then play a match that will determine 15th, 16th and 17th place.

- The main draw losing quarter-finalists will be drawn against each other. 2 matches, each match to be contested between 2 countries

- The winners will then battle for 5th to 6th place, the losers will face eachother to determine 7th and 8th place.

- The main draw semi-finalists will play each other for 3rd to 4th place.

- Those countries who finish 13th-17th place will be relegated next year and will join new countries to PAW.

Singapore has 5 team members now so this country is closed for comittments.

Jul 3rd, 2004, 05:11 PM
how are the seedings decided? i believe s'pore should be seeded!

Jul 3rd, 2004, 05:18 PM
Spikeyaidanm decided the seedings. I did the draw using a bowl and I picked out the teams randomly. I did it live on MSN Messenger and Spikeyaidanm and Rossana_Fan watched lol :)

Jul 3rd, 2004, 06:04 PM
i think Singapore shd be seeded at least 4th...

can the organisers kindly explain the seedings???

Jul 3rd, 2004, 06:12 PM
You will have to ask Spikeyaidanm about the seedings as he allocated them.

The seedings were based on those of round one, where South Africa, Belgium, Spain and Croatia were all amongst the top 8 seeds.

Jul 4th, 2004, 11:13 AM
Can I play for Singapore?

Jul 4th, 2004, 11:48 AM
I'm very sorry Silverwhite but Singapore have the maximum number of team players now. Maybe you can play in the next round in November. Or you can contact the 5 team members and sort it out with them, maybe one will let you play instead.

Jul 4th, 2004, 03:14 PM
I'll play again for the USA

Jul 4th, 2004, 05:41 PM

Nah, it's ok.The experienced ones should play. ;)

Jul 4th, 2004, 09:52 PM
I commit for Spain!!!!!!!!

(the only spaniard again... :()

Jul 4th, 2004, 10:04 PM
bbypk- in the PAW ranking list there are two other spaniards (Lucyfer and nueva_armada). I have hardly ever seen them play PAW recently though. I sent messages to them but have had no response yet. Maybe there are other Spanish people on the board that you could get to join PAW, even if they just play in the Fed Cup. It's so much better when citizens play for their proper countries :)

Jul 4th, 2004, 11:09 PM
They dont play i think... :(

Jul 4th, 2004, 11:33 PM
Well get some other Spaniards to play :) You must know some?

Jul 4th, 2004, 11:38 PM

Captain of Belgium has arrived :)

It's good to see a compatriot winning (another) slam, after being on a break for three weeks...

Go Belgium :banana:

Jul 5th, 2004, 04:01 PM
Sonfo will do andrew_uk a favour and will play for Spain :p

Jul 7th, 2004, 12:35 AM
I'll play for SA.
I messaged Mario today 2 hear if he'll be playing - but he hasn't answered yet. And I suspect he won't be playing - he uses the computer at university - and they are currently on their mid-year break. Sooooooo -- can one person play, or should there be 2?

Jul 7th, 2004, 12:41 AM
butch- I also messaged Mario the same day as I messaged you and he has not read the message yet. I am going to ask Daniel if he would mind playing. If you know any other South Africans please get them to play.

Jul 7th, 2004, 01:01 AM
I went though the rankings and couldn't find another SA'n. I'll also msg Daniel - we've messaged each other be4 (we go to the same internet cafe in CApe Town, and a couple of times I've went to wtaworld and he was still logged in) --> hopefully he'll no have a problem.

Jul 7th, 2004, 02:39 PM
MagicMilan for Serbia & Montenegro :bounce:

WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO :worship: :bounce: :wavey: :D ;)

Jul 8th, 2004, 12:46 PM
Unfortunately guys Ssouth Africa and Croatia have 1 team member and 2 are at least needed. I would have much preferred that the teams strictly consisted of players from their proper countries, however I have been trying so hard for the last few days to achieve this. Seeing as that many players in the main Fed Cup Draw are not playing for their real country (just look at Italy), I've had to resort to asking other people to play for South Africa and Croatia. 2sistersfan will play for South Africa, I am now getting someone else to play for Croatia. Thanks.

Jul 8th, 2004, 01:10 PM
I will play for South Africa

Jul 8th, 2004, 01:17 PM
I will play for Croatia

Jul 8th, 2004, 02:03 PM
WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO :worship: :bounce: :wavey: :D ;)

Jul 30th, 2004, 05:48 AM
I have been injured for a while ;) but I'm feeling pretty good now and would like to play for the USA if we need any players.

Jul 30th, 2004, 05:48 AM
I'll play for Croatia if needed, lol.
