Never heard of Laura Correia from Luxembourg but I'm glad they found some other player than Cornelius :lol:

Depending on the pools, I think that given how Kaia played on Brisbane, Estonia has a decent chance. The favourites would he to e Poland and the netherlands though. The Dutch have real depth in their teams.

Håkon Jan 7th, 2012 06:12 PM

Re: Europe/Africa Zone I 2012
 
I think Estonia will get a good pool because they have played World Group?

Also Romania have good players, but not really suited to the surface. :o

The Dutch need to find some form :unsure:

Not necessarily. Don't they take or team from each ranking group, meaning that there is a one in four chance that Greece could draw Estonia!

Our best team possible but still we most likely will get relegated, give your best girls :D

Amazing field :worship:
