Re: 2015 Europe Africa Group III

Will Caroline Wozniacki be able to play here ? (she last played in 2011)

Or is this E/A Group 3 played parallel to an important WTA event again ?

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Re: 2015 Europe Africa Group III

Caroline has said she will play, and it's confirmed by Danish Tennis Association.

Group III is scheduled to play the week between the two premiers of Charleston & Stuttgart. So it doesn't interfere with her schedule in any way. I'm not saying she'll play both Charleston & Stuttgart (I don't know), but those are in fact the only WTA tournamnets she can possibly play in April (since she has an International on her schedule in January).

Really should have played in Tallinn this year.

Re: 2015 Europe Africa Group III

I agree. Mauritius also seems unlikely, I think. I wouldn't be surprised if the final list of participants is reduced to 12 nations once again.

It's a bit surprising, though, that Morocco hasn't entered. Morocco hosts a few pro tournaments and even a WTA tournament, and did participate every year 2008-2013.

This list is not right. You looked at "Teams" but you must look at "Draws & Results"

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Re: 2015 Europe Africa Group III

I'm surprised Macedonia can't get a team together.

R.I.P Bally

Thankyou for years of service to British tennis

Re: 2015 Europe Africa Group III

I'm disappointed that Lina and Magda couldn't put together a team. Maybe in 2016...

This will be hard for Greece but if we send our best team (which we never do), then I can see us being promoted. The team will probably be Maria Sakkari, Valentini Grammatikopoulou, Despina Papamichail, and Agni Stefanou/Angeliki Kairi. I doubt Eleni will play since she hasn't played in four years

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
