German tennis (http://www.playfuls.com/fun/#) players Martina Mueller und Julia Schruff were on the weekend dumped from the national federation DTB's top squad after not playing at a recent Fed Cup tie.

Mueller, who is ranked 35 in the world, and the 81st-placed Schruff did not play in the relegation tie in China in September, with Germany losing 4-1. Fed Cup captain Barbara Rittner said the two made excessive financial demands and then let down the team.

World number 20 Anna-Lena Groenefeld and unheralded players such as Kristina Barrois and Kathrin Woehrle will now attempt to lift Germany back into the Fed Cup World Group next year.

as if they would have helped much. China would have beaten them anyway. Who Rittner needs to fire is German tennis federation management.

Weren't the relegation ties held in July after Wimbledon, and not in September as the little bit of text stated? Not a major thing, just wanted to point out the error.

A friend in Europe says Martina and Julia have no love lost for Barbara Rittner to begin with but wasn't sure of the details.

Anyone know if that is true?
