Russia and Belgium Bid for Fed Cup Semifinals and Final

The Belgian and Russian Tennis Federations have submitted bids to the ITF to stage the 2003 Fed Cup Semifinals and Final, to be held in the week commencing 17th November.

The deadline for submission of bids for the Semifinals and Final passed at 11am GMT (12pm BST) today, August 13th. Any of the four nations contesting the semifinals - USA, Belgium, Russia and France - had the opportunity to bid.

As of the deadline the ITF received two bids, one from the Belgian Federation (FRBT) and one from the Russian Federation (RTF).

The FRBT bid proposes Brussels and the RTF bid is Moscow.

The ITF will conduct site visits in the week commencing August 18th. The Fed Cup Committee will meet on Wednesday August 27th to discuss the matter and an announcement on the chosen venue will be made shortly after that date.
