Belgium vs USA, i think it's gonna be a blowout:)

Russia vs France, France, is Amelie and everyone else,
Russia aint got no one against healthy Amelie,
but they do have the edges in doubles,
so it'll be a cool match

Wow! A United States-Belgium semi. That show be very interesting of who plays it. Russia and France should not be as competitive as Amelie is the only GREAT player in the country.

Yep Russia got the event but didn't get the players to go with it!

On the bright side, this greatly increases their chance take the title.

well, if next year the FedCup in Belgium, Russia should send this team (I'm sure Russia will get to the final):

SMIRNOVA, IRINA
NEFEDOVA, ANNA EUGENIA
OSTAPENKO, EKATERINA

LOL @ tennace.

Well, i've read that neither Justine and Kim are going to play, and if the Williams sisters are going to be injured, I think the semifinals might be
Chanda Rubin vs. Els Callens
Meghann shaughnessey vs. Kristen Flipkens

I just hope Russia makes it to the final for the sake of the crowd there!
