The draw is out!!!!!!!!!!

Belgium plays against Australia and we choose surface <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

I think this is a very easy draw. I hope they pick hardcourt and let them play in Ghent <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

GOOD LUCK BELGIAN BABES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pretty good draw with Sweden or Italy in second round. Anyone knows wether it's already known who plays second round at home?

But first Australia. Go babes!!!

Don't they have to play in Wallonie? <br />Where did they play last time in Belgium?

Didn't they play in Brussels on clay? I don't remember the last Fed Cup match in Belgium.

But I don't think it was in flanders.

Well, here's what I've read in "Le Soir":

------------------------------------------------<br />TENNIS - La Belgique reçoit l'Australie<br />La Belgique recevra l'Australie les 27 et 28 avril prochains dans le cadre du premier tour de la Fed Cup 2002. La ville reste à définir mais elle sera quoi qu'il en soit francophone, l'organisation du match incombant à l'AFT. Têtes de série n°2, Clijsters et Henin devront, en cas de victoire, se déplacer au mois de juillet, soit en Italie, soit en Suède, pour espérer se qualifier pour la phase finale qui aura lieu début novembre. A noter encore que les Etats-Unis n'ont pas été exclus de l'épreuve suite à leur forfait de dernière minute pour la phase finale 2000. (Pa. L.)<br />------------------------------------------------

That means (for those who don't understand french) that Belgium will play in Wallonie (or Brussels) against Australia, and then will play away against Italy or Sweden!<br />Then they should be qualified for the final round!

It's not so bad they wil play in Wallonie...

So Flanders (and hopefully in Ghent of course) can organise the final then <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />

What a great draw for our Belgian girls! I hope they play on clay against Australia. The first round is 27th and 28th of April. Hmm, still quite risky for outdoors.
