Re: 2019 Americas Zone Group I

Sad to see Argentina so weak

I miss the great Paola Suarez, Gisela Dulko and Clarisa Fernandez

Re: 2019 Americas Zone Group I

Olmos on clay is a disaster but I have to agree that Ecuador is showing gutsy performances in that very hard group.

Alves is also surprisingly good for Brazil.

Colombia could get promoted as soon as next year.

Re: 2019 Americas Zone Group I

If Paraguay beats Mexico 2-1 (Which is pretty possible tbh) and Colombia defeats Ecuador 3-0 we could have a 3 way tie on the top with 6-3 rubber differential

Re: 2019 Americas Zone Group I

A great and important win over Paraguay for Colombia !

Osorio and Osorio/Arango won the rubbers. Very happy for them

Re: 2019 Americas Zone Group I

Brazil qualified for WG 2 play-offs as expected.

Colombia with a good tournament !
I hope they will reach the WG 2 play-off in the next years.
Hopefully Osorio and Arango will stay healthy and continue to improve !

Simply shocking how weak Argentina is these days
They lost to Chile and even had to play the relegation play-off

Puerto Rico and Ecuador relegated

Well, Paraguay really should have won this again, but Vero is not in good form and Montserrat Gonzalez hadn't played since September. I hope Brazil gets a home tie play-off for once, these Latin countries need a chance.

Kvitova. Osaka. Cepede Royg. Puig.
Safarova. Cibulkova. Konta. Bacsinszky.
