China (Shuai Peng, Tian Tian Sun, Shuai Zhang, Shengnan Sun) :help:
but I think we have a chance if Shuai Peng wins both her singles ... her match against Schiavone will be a key match

:lol: What's this? Mara should be team #1.
Corrado Barazzutti deserves to lose with such a crappy choice.
However with the team China has I don't think a win is possible :shrug: (where are Zheng, Li...? :confused: )

Li and Zheng have been left off the team so other players can qualify for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing :fiery:

in order to qualify, you had to play Fed Cup twice in last 4 years, including once in last 2 years ... so CTA wants the players on this year's team to qualify

So they chose to lose 1st round for the 1st time they're in the main group so that some unknown players out of top 200 can qualify.. :shrug:

Well, I am glad Flavi is playing 'cuz she is my favorite Italian player, but yes, Mara probably deserved it.

This should be a good tie, both strong teams!

I think Italy is going to win, and Mara will play doubles. In the last minute, she will substitute Flavia.

Sorry Mara didn't deserve to be on the team.
She's not even close to being the best clay courter.

She on barely .500 on the WTA tour on clay.
Flavia might be struggling but even at her worse she still made a final of a clay court tournament.

She's a player with a game made for faster surfaces and most of the Italians have games made for medium to slower surfaces.
She was a part of a winning team last year.
She should focus on staying in the top 40.

Mara won a title on clay last week, in doubles... so well, yeah, she's no good on clay, while Flavia is in great shape lately! :rolleyes:

:confused:
Last year she didn't lose to any lower ranked player on (red) clay (her ranking was about the same as currently). She had difficult draws, losing to Henin, Peer, Kuznetsova and Schiavone, who are all really good on clay :shrug:
