Re: 2018 Europe/Africa Zone Group I

Poor Portugal is gonna get eaten alive No top 600 player in the team

Latvia really serious about Fed Cup with both Ostapenko & Sevastova

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: 2018 Europe/Africa Zone Group I

It seems Latvia and GB should not have problem to get promotion, except they get draw against each other.


Finals Win/Lost (ITF)
Singles : 1:2
Doubles : 7:19

Re: 2018 Europe/Africa Zone Group I

Waiting for GB, Estonia and Latvia to be drawn in the same group.

Totally possible by the seedings.

So is Serbia, Georgia and Portugal.

Re: 2018 Europe/Africa Zone Group I

Pool A
Pool B is packed
Pool C (CRO) and Pool D (LAT) seems already decided (if the nominations stay as they are )

Saying that, if both Ostapenko and Sevastova show up, Latvia has a BYE to WG II Play-Off to be honest.

Re: 2018 Europe/Africa Zone Group I

Serbia should win group A

GB or Estonia will win group B

Croatia should win group C
(But Hungary could be tricky)

Latvia should win group D
(But Poland could stop them)

Re: 2018 Europe/Africa Zone Group I

I wish they could find a way to hold this on clay at some point. Indoor hard keeps favoring teams like GB and screwing over Slovenia who would be a much bigger force on clay.
