That rule doesn't actually say they can't be drawn to meet in the Saturday zonal play-off, just that the top 4 ranked teams have to be in separate groups.

In group 1' the winner of A plays C, and B plays D.

The top seeds are ranked as Belarus, GB, Slovenia, Poland.

If they just do it straight in order, then it would be Belarus v Slovenia and GB vs Poland in theory, but I'm not sure if it is actually a formal rule it has to be done that way and that they cant draw the top seeds at random to choose which of group A,B,C or D each is placed in. Certainly the rule you quoted doesn't say that in a two group zone the top team has to be in pool A and the other in pool B, just that there has to be one in each.

In practice it seems easiest to just place the top seeds into pools in rank order, at least to avoid a theoretical 1vs 2 and 3vs4 for the Saturday playoff.

Indeed that's what they did last year, so it does seem likely Poland v Belarus would only happen in the World Group II match in April.

Re: 2013 Europe/Africa Zone I

Draw

Pool A

Belarus
Austria
Croatia
Georgia

Pool B

Great Britain
Portugal
Hungary
Bosnia & Hercegovina

Pool C

Poland
Romania
Israel
Turkey

Pool D

Slovenia
Netherlands
Bulgaria
Luxembourg

So apparently they didn't follow that procedure...

Israel got a pretty tough draw I think, some work to do just to stay up.

GB have got a pretty nice half of the draw. Don't think anyone will challenge them.

Re: 2013 Europe/Africa Zone I

C'mon GB - nice looking draw.

I think Slovenia will struggle here, although they have a potentially very good doubles pairing. Netherlands should win that group provided Rus can get out her funk and beat the Bulgarian #2. I don't think Pironokova is strong enough to carry Bulgaria through the doubles (assuming she beat Bertens anyway).

Re: 2013 Europe/Africa Zone I

Why Poland in Pool C - Slovenia is ranked higher.
That pretty much means we'll have Belarus again

They obviously placed 1st and 2nd seeds and then used draw to place 3rd and 4th seeds. Like normal tournaments do.
