Re: 2015 Europe/Africa Zone II

Kaia and Anett have indicated that they will play. It's hard not to see Estonia plus maybe Slovenia (depending on how many more players they have alienated by next year) going through to EA Zone 1.

Re: 2015 Europe/Africa Zone II

Come on, Kaia ! Estonia should qualify for Europe/Africa Zone 1 in 2016 !

The seeding system is stupid They should make seeding with ranking of 2 highest-ranked players

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


Serena Williams Maria Sharapova Jelena Jankovic
A. Radwanska V. Zvonareva C. Wozniacki P. Kvitova
N. Petrova A. Chakvetadze A. Myskina L. Davenport M. Hingis
A. Kournikova T. Paszek K. Sprem J. Dokic I. Tulyaganova

Re: 2015 Europe/Africa Zone II

Estonia and Slovenia really SHOULD go through. Maybe Bosnia or South Africa could surprise depending on which players play.

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.

I thought she didn't play because she was getting US citizenship or something?

Yeah and she missed London 2012 because she wanted to become American
Not like she would've had a chance anyways with the depth in American tennis


Although I feel like in recent years her name is on the Fed Cup team initially and then in the end she doesn't play, so this could be another one of those situations

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Re: 2015 Europe/Africa Zone II

Kanepi
Kontaveit

Schaul
Maybe with Claudine Luxembourg has a chance to stay in E/A Zone 2

Scheepers
Happy she is back after 10 years ! Finally. Very nice surprise

Where is Minella ?

Minella should really play. Not sure why she doesn't but she could definitely get a WC for Rio if she cared about FC

I still have no idea how LUX is still in Group 2 without Minella for so many years
Oh wait, they beat Greece in the relegation playoff 7-6(8) in the third cause Stefanou was up 4-0 against Schaul and then she got injured and then Papamichail beat Kremer (she tried to choke but Anne wouldn't let her) only for Papamichail/Sakkari to save like 8 MPs in the doubles rubber to push it to a third set TB from 1-5 15-40 down in the third and then in the TB we saved more MPs and had one of our own in which Sakkari missed an easy overhead to win it and then we lost the TB 8-10
Three years later and you all know I'm still not over that loss

But I must give credit to Kremer and Schaul for their dedication to FC. Legends

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
