Re: Japan vs Belgium Fed Cup World Group Playoffs 2012
Nara has more talent than Aoyama or the Sema sisters, but she's had a bad time with injuries which is affecting her game. Her straight sets Fed Cup win over Rampre in February might still give her a place in this team, though I hope she's feeling fit.
Hopefully Ayumi is feeling better now. Although you wouldn't believe it if you read GM, she WAS injured against Muguruza Blanco in Miami, she withdrew from Charleston and Kuala Lumpur, so I hope she's fit because Japan desperately needs their number one here.
Would LOVE to see a Japanese victory! Ganbatte!
Kvitova. Osaka. Cepede Royg. Puig.
Safarova. Cibulkova. Konta. Bacsinszky.
