Lucky for Indonesia. Out of the 4 countries, Indonesia gets the easiest, but with the current players, Indonesia will get kicked to the Zone Asia again. :help:

I just hope Justine and Kim wont play for Belgium, they are local and will choose to play on a fast court.

Gisela is our best hope for the surface and Kim and Justine will be too strong to defeat.

Good luck Argentina!!! :wavey:

Well, maybe at the moment she is not feeling so good and decides not to play:devil: :p

That isn't a nice thing to say. Kim is feeling good and really wants to play Fed Cup, it is in her home town, it would take a lot to stop her from playing.

You sure Tina P will play? she has also entered a ITF tourny that week...But as she userly lose early she can maybe play both.

Just hope she will play and win some matches.

Czech/Italy will be the closiest... :)

Kveta Peschke should be on team as she's the toughest mentally I think and can wins big matchs...

mmm i think it'll be a very very tough match for the Czechs, let's hope they'll make it :D

As usual, we will not know Argentina's team until the last day :o. Salerni won't play (injured) and Paola will definitely not play (semi-retired). Probably Dulko, Diaz-Oliva and Fernández. The other one could be Gussoni, Krauth or García Sokol.
Given Gisela's current form we don't stand a chance here. Kim's gonna beat the crap out of us :scared:.
Maybe Mariana can win a couple of matches ;)

Mima announced the team so i guess it's true ... this means two easy, easy points for China :lol: :lol: :lol:

Jorn

It will be tough for Mima to decide if Tina or Andreja should play.....But Fedcup is Fed-Cup ;)

btw, Anybody know when will all teams be announced?

Wiggly
Jun 29th, 2005, 01:47 PM
Czech team is unsure...

I don't know if it's Safarova, Koukalova and Strycova or Vaidisova, Benesova and Peschke...

Article from www.idnes.cz:

P r a h a - Klára Koukalová, Lucie Šafářová nebo Barbora Strýcová - jedna z těchto tří tenistek doplní český fedcupový tým pro utkání o postup do první světové skupiny proti Itálii, které příští víkend hostí Liberec. Zbylé trio je jasné, tvoří jej Nicol Vaidišová, Květa Peschkeová a Iveta Benešová

What tha's mean?

The Chinese team will probably consist of Zheng Jie, Tiantian Sun, Ting Li and someone else.

Na Li is still injured, so she probably won't play. I don't know if Shuai will play though. :confused:
