Surely as captain that is what she's there for? To decide on the team best suited to beating the team in front of them. That will vary depending on the players the opposition has. I doubt she would ever have to resign, for a start Fed cup is hardly high profile in Britain...
BIB: we really should win the doubles, especially with Hev and Laura playing. Therefore the objective is to pick the best players that will allow us to win one of the two singles. It's better to win one of them and lose the other easily than to lose two close matches. Which is what I feel personally will happen but then I'm a pessimist
And this isn't to knock Hev in any way, she's shown so many times before she's a fighter and I'm sure her form will pick up again soon.
Of course this will all go out the window if Laura just beat Arn
