Re: 2013 Europe Africa Group II

Wait are those official teams or you are just predicting?
Same as Group III, the teams that are expected based on rankings and prior selections :)

Scheepers to play Fed Cup for SA

March 17 2014

Johannesburg – For the first time since 2005, South Africa's highest ranked women's singles player Chani Scheepers has made herself available for Fed Cup duty.

“Chani assured me that she is totally committed to South African tennis,” newly-appointed Fed Cup captain Earl Grainger said in a statement on Monday.

“We spoke about her not being available for Fed Cup in the past and we discussed the future. Chani wants to help us in every possible way and I was delighted that she agreed to be part of the Fed Cup squad.”

Scheepers was named in the 2014 Fed Cup squad comprising 15 of the country's top senior and junior players.

Playing KL and Stuttgart

Grainger said that he had spoken to South Africa’s top ranked player, Chani Scheepers and although Scheepers had committed to being part of the Fed Cup squad, she was not available for the Fed Cup team in April. “Chani told me that she had a lot of world ranking points to defend in April and in order to maintain and improve her ranking she would not be availbale. Unfortunately the Fed Cup in Euro Africa Group 2 is played over a full week and clashes with a tournament in Malaysia and the qualifying of the Porche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart. Both these tournaments are also clay court events and Chani would be in full clay court preparation at that stage.”

LOL @ Scheepers. She is not playing neither KL nor Stuttgart Q. She'll be playing Marrakech from MD so she better come up with a better excuse :eek:h:

What teams are good here? Does Egypt have a chance of staying?
Hard to say. Highest ranked players among nominated are Kovinic and Vogt both ranked around #150. But they won't have much support from rest of their teams. Georgia seems to have most all-around quality.

Danka just won a match in Kuala Lumpur, which means she is not coming here from beginning. It seems to me that we are going to play Europe Africa Group III next year if she and Ana Veselinović don't play :(
