Re: 2017 Americas Zone Group II

Really weak Wouldn't be surprised if Puig singlehandedly carried PR to promotion

Only other team that is somewhat decent is Peru and Guatemala..

Also no Roemer for Ecuador Also what happened to Segarelli

Re: 2017 Americas Zone Group II

Puig is like the only ranked player If she does go and play, she should really win promotion for her team.

Nice to see Botto again. Hope Peru can get promoted

I sense that Roemer is reconsidering her commitment to competitive tennis. She hasn't played in a little while, and she keeps withdrawing from entry lists. And now no Fed Cup for her, even though she competed the last few years and was a valuable addition to her team

Re: 2017 Americas Zone Group II

Wonder why these teams are withdrawing after they have selected a team. Must be quite disappointing for their players to have their hopes up and then it all gone.

Must also be something to do with lack of funds I'm guessing.

Re: 2017 Americas Zone Group II

@Not A Fan

According to the scoreboard on the celebration photo I posted above it seems that Morales/Schippers (Guatemala) won the decisive doubles rubber against Botto/Iamachkine (Peru) with 6-2 7-5 !

Yes, annoying the livescore stopped. Also no doubles score on the tie page
