if they don't get promoted from there , then they should all retire

it would be pathetic.

They should be playing next month sometime

They should get promoted as it wont be on red clay.

As long as the captain doesnt do what he did last year and pick a stupid team. I mean Anne?!?! Come on - how stupid can you get?!

If the team is:

Pullin
Ahl
Woodroffe
Elena B

then the oppostion have little hope.

Lucie hasnt been picked fro fed Cup fro about 3 years, which is a disgrace!!!

I think you get to take 5 players and they should be

Anne K
Elena B
Lucie Ahl
and then Julie and Lorna for doubles

Julies performance in singles has been crap this year!

The tournament, apparently takes place in Pretoria from April 9 to 13.

The 25 countries participating are: Algeria, Cyprus, Ethiopia, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Mauritius, Norway, Tunisia, Armenia, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Lesotho, Macedonia, Moldova, Rwanda, Botswana, Egypt, Great Britain, Kenya, Liechtenstein, Malta, Morocco and hosts South Africa.

Surely, our chances are good, especially as Amanda Coetzer won't be playing........

Only countries which i can see ebing a remote threat are Tunisia if Sfar plays - which she may do, and even if she does i expect both tunisia and GBR to be high seeds and not in the mame group. Ireland coudl take us to 2-1 but i cant see Julie/Lorna losing to Curran/Doyle!!! Egypt please let us have them! Then Lucie can beat Farid 60 60 again!!

South Africa coudl maybe beat us and we've beaten Finalnd in teh recent past [ 2 years ago-it was our victory whcih ked to them being relegated, lol!!]

If we dont get promoted then every1 in teh team shoudl retire!!!

What surface is this on? Hard Court or clay?

BTW thats another thing, does any1 agree that the groups shoudl cahnge surface, as playing on red clay gives certain countires a huge advantage.

Paul :D
