Well, in the days of old the whole Fed cup used to be played as a tournament. They changed it to (I suppose) copy the Davis Cup. But yes, if they would do the whole event, and not just the semis and the final in one week it might be easier to get the best players to participate. And yes, Istanbul would be an ideal location with enthusiastic crowds. I still think it's a big, big mistake to take away the YEC from them. As far as I'm concerned they have 'earned' the right to keep it.
