(Nothing against Kim and Justine) How long until the US gets to take back what is rightfully ours and tell their idiot captain where he can stick his Fed Cup?

The captain should send the U.S. team a thank you note for handing them the title on a platter <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

maybe next year the fed cup should be held on a military base so that the US "oh i just peed in my pants" players would dare to come out of their houses.

Congratulations Belgium, US players weren't scared of terrorists but of our strength. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Noice. Isn't this a friendly thread.

what is ITF going to do to the US for pulling out? Fine them? Or nothing?

I also don't see that while Lindsey, Jennifer, Serena and I dunno Meghan Shaunassey (i can't spell her name) were already in europe, why they couldn't have played in europe for another week.

I didn't know Serna defected from Spain!

So, these are poundings administered by the Americans then:

Kim d. Lindsay, Stanford final<br />Justine d. Venus, Berlin R16<br />Justine d. Jennifer, Wimbledon SF<br />Venus d. Justine in three sets, Wimbledon F<br />Lindsay d. Kim in a third set TB, Masters SF

I'm American and love my country, but as far as classy, brilliant tennis players are concerned, Justine and Kim are the ones for me!!! <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" />

CONGRATULATIONS BELGIUM!! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Why am I not surprised?

Come on! How can you claim it's rightfully yours when you didn't even play a single match?!

[email protected] carot!

Lots of congratulations to the Belguim team. Too bad America weren't there, maybe they knew they'd get a whipping!?

Only kidding, but there's absolutely no gurantees that US would have won, sorry!

Kim was on a mission and would have steamrollered anyone that got in her way most probably.

Great for Belgium. I'm happy for them.

Belgium played the draw and won. Not their fault USA weren't in Spain.

Congrats to little Belgium. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I'm sorry jrj but your conclusion is too narrow minded. It will be probably the last time that you can say that Kim and Justine can't measure with the US players, next time they will be ready to win the key matches too, the experience will give them a boost.

oh by the way by rule the event should have been in the US (the defending champion) and do you think next year it will be here or in Belgium?

jrj: If, if, if.... but, but, when???

If only the US could have let their tennis do the talking. Your stats mean nothing because the records will always show that the US were too scared to show up.

first I said from the start nothing against Justine or Kim it's about the Belgium ahole captain who talked trash about us! <br />By rule of the Fed Cup the event should have been in the US. The next time you anti-American posters are cheering for Monica as your "hero" I'll remind you how you called her and the US players cowards.

Jrj, you said the Rose Bowl is "rightfully yours"...<br />As Belgium went to Spain and won all its matches, it is rightfully ours! <br />I had predicted a few months ago, in some other tennis forums that the Williams' sisters wouldn't play this Fed Cup as it was on clay... They seem to have some other things to care about instead of playing for their country (September the 11th or not...)<br />Adding the fact that Lindsay is hurt, and that Monica prefers resting and playing some little tournament in her native town instead of playing for her country, what do we have? <br />Well, there's Jennifer Capriati. Oh but she's not really in good shape in this end of year... Oh but BTW isn't she ill? That's why she lost to Testud in Munich, remember?<br />So what do we have? Meghann Shaugnessy? Not a kind of player who could really cause troubles on clay... <br />What about Lisa Raymond? She's #1 in doubles, but that's it. And as for Shaugnessy, Raymond couldn't beat our belgian girls this year...

So, our belgian captain concluded that the US tennis federation didn't WANT TO send a team who wouldn't have had a lot of chances of catching the title...<br />Is that so unconceivable?
