Italy probably field the same team (Sexa, Flavia, Errani, Vinci) again :yawn:

Russia will add Zvonareva to the team ... probably take out Sharapova or Safina :spit:

France fights to stay in the World Group (which it always in history of Fed Cup) against Spain :unsure:

Patty might retire during this Fed Cup. :unsure:
I guess that would be good place to do since she can retire in Switzerland :worship:

but why not at least play Roland Garros :shrug:

Slovak Rebubliv v Serbia :hysteric: Serbia needs Ana and Jelena :sobbing:
i'd be very surprised if jelena doesn't play, i just think that she'd be loyal to her team :)

EDIT: http://english.blic.rs/Sports/7376/Jelena-eager-to-play-in-Slovakia
im 100% sure she'll play

as for ana, i think she should play since its only 2 days of the year that she has to commit to.

a strong/probably team would be:

Jelena Jankovic
Ana Ivanovic
Bojana Jovanovski
Aleksandra Krunic

as for doubles: :tape::scratch::shrug:

:lol: Jovanovski/Jankovic again! Against Slovakia again :lol:
maybe serbia wont need doubles to win this time :shrug:

and on second thoughts ana "maybe" more "forced-to-play" the Fed Cup after last years dispute...

something tells me that she won't say anything about fed cup for a few more weeks yet :p

^OMG you do this all the time on MTF for Davis Cup :eek:
No matter how many times I tell you, Italy ain't picking Vierin, Russia ain't picking Bovina or Bychkova or Myskina :lol:
And Slovakia should be Belgium. SVK already lost ;)

I think Canada will struggle with this one. I see Hercog winning both singles and with Srebotnik in there for doubles...

We need a win from Marino vs Hercog and two wins against Zec-Peskiric. Not impossible, depends who plays second singles.

Do you know every players have their rights to play Davis Cup (for men) or FED Cup (for women) for their country? They can replace the starters to play if they can't play for injury or sickness, suspension, other emergency incident.
