Cool 2010 FedCup - Revised entry list and format

Two teams disappered while one brand new joined, for a total of 10 nations.

5 teams earned the right to play in World Group I, while the other 5 will have to start from World Group II.


World Group I

Belgium
The Crow, Arn, Per4ever, ^bibi^


Israel and The Celtic Connection
Meteor Shower, Rightous


The You Knows
Geewhiz, Kuilli, Gallofa, KC


USA
GracefulVenus, Rocketta, CanIGetaWhat


ROSA (Residents of Sainte-Anne)
Ceze, -Ph51-, Yasmine



World Group II

Russia
Kart, Klok


European Union
James, Princess Fiona, Tetetubby, ViennaCalling, Adner


O.L.D. F.A.R.T.S. from Geriatrica
Brian Stewart, Valda Lake


Canada
Drake1980, CANUCK


BeNeLand
Dorien., Zamboni



In the first 5 legs there will be a Round Robin for both groups. Top 4 in World Group I will qualify for the Fed Cup main draw, with top 2 directly through to the semis. The 5th and last team will be eliminated from this year's run to the title and will need to regain the World Group I spot through the play-off qualifying series.

World Group II top 2 will qualify for the main draw quarterfinals as well, while the other 3 will join the freshly relegated team in the play-off qualifying series.

Re: 2010 FedCup - Revised entry list and format

The only differences from last year's edition come from the 2 retirements: there are only 5 teams in World Group I, so each team will have a day off during the Round Robin stage and there will be 2 teams coming from WG II (instead of 1) in the main draw. With only 4 teams not reaching the main draw, the play-off qualifying series will also be more simple with semis in the 6th leg and final in the 7th.

Good luck everyone!
