Spain plays at home, that's great <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> . But not a good draw for Spain, at least I don't like it too much.

Australia plays at home <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> , I wonder what surface the Belgians will pick.....

Nov 27th, 2001, 11:50 AM
Adrian ..... Belgium are home not AUS.

Oops sorry, seen Alx's post, he has Australia at home <img src="redface.gif" border="0">

Well that sucks they get the home and the choice <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

what an easy draw for the belgian girls!!!!!!!!<br />I hope they choose hardcourt, but I think it will be clay again. Belgium has lots of clay courts..

I hope hardcourt, so they might play in Ghent then <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Belgium, please pick HARDCOURT! <img src="graemlins/angel.gif" border="0" alt="[Angel]" />

Belgium: it will be clay , its clay season and only other choice would be indoors,

Germany might stick us on grass at Halle but i'm sure we'll come thru whatever they throw at us, we'll just shuffle our players <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Nov 27th, 2001, 12:54 PM
Well if our girls continue to improve like they have this year, they will at least put in a good showing <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Provided we beat Germans, we'd play the second round in Spain. I don't like it..

Nov 27th, 2001, 01:39 PM
I think clay would be the best choice....I don't trust those Aussies on hardcourt <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> ....

Nov 27th, 2001, 02:15 PM
ys .... If we are at home to Spain we should make it <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

even on clay .... Elena v ASV , I'd take Elena.

The news from the ITF also mention that the qualifying play offs for the World Group 2003 will be on July 20-21.

This is during the qualifying rounds of the BOWC - exactly the same as last year. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

So some players will have to chose again between the Fed Cup play offs and Stanford. <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" />

How come Germany gets to choose the surface? <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

I'm glad Switzerland is still in instead of playing quallies. <img src="redface.gif" border="0"> I hope at least Patty plays for them. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

<br />Hungary?!?!? <img src="confused.gif" border="0"> Let's see who they have. Aniko, Rita, Zsofia, Petra.....hmmm

pea: the last russia germany tie was in russia, thats the reason why germnay play at home this time!

<br />TBE: im sure germnay will play once again in hamburg on clay! im sure lawn would be better, but this year against argentina it was the same, im sure on lawn in halle germany had won the tie against argentina!

Go USA!!!

does this mean that the USA could play Belgium in the finals????

That would be great!!

Nov 28th, 2001, 04:37 AM
Will the USA-vs-Austria match be played in America or Austria?

Dec 9th, 2001, 10:14 AM
germnay cant play in hamburg, the week later is the betty barclay cup and she need the courts for the qualifying!

<img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <br />and bad for the germnas girls, if she not get a wildcard for the hamburg tourni she can not play qualifying!<br />and not all can get a wildcard!

Dec 9th, 2001, 11:35 AM
Germany still can play in Hamburg, (even I don't think they will) but they will have to play Friday and Saturday on the big c-c.

Betty qualies will first start Sunday. (If they do, what they use to do...)

Go Belgium <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
