Re: Fed Cup World Group I & II - Round Robin Day 1 draws!
I thought this year, I might offer some running commentary for the newer posters to familiarise them with the key players in Fed Cup.
Obviously, this is all in good fun so no offence intended and if you are upset I will remove my comments with my sincerest apologies.
Kart's first leg analysis:
World Group I Round Robin Day 1
Belgium ( 1 ) vs USA ( 5 )
I see Belgium are going for quantity over quality whilst US are going for age over youth. This might be worth watching, if only to see Belgium lose.
Russia ( 2 ) vs The AdMeans ( 4 )
This could be a tough draw actually.
The You Knows ( 3 ) vs ROSA (Residents of Sainte-Anne)( 6 )
Know it alls vs Rejects. Watching paint dry would be a more fulfilling use of time than following this tie.
World Group II Round Robin Day 1
European Union ( 1 ) vs Canada ( 4 )
European Union once used to be a force to be reckoned with ... around 2000 BC apparently. Let's hope Canada aren't paralysed by fear (or laughter.)
Israel and The Celtic Connection ( 3 ) vs The Newbies ( 5 )
I've got no problem with any poster in this tie so I wish them all good luck. Having said that, Sal gloats even more than I do. You have been warned.
Day off: O.L.D. F.A.R.T.S. from Geriatrica ( 2 )
At their age, they probably need the extra preparation time.
