Korea into the WG. :eek:

They were definitely quite lucky to draw a weak Slovak team though. :o

H-T reliable as always. :yeah:

Fantastic result for Korea and great to finally see an Asian team make the World Group.

It's been 20 years since Korea played in the WG when they lost 5-0 to France. I doubt they have a much better chance this time but who knows. With a lucky draw they might just pull a surprise.

Japan had chances to join them. Too bad. :(

Indeed it would have been very nice, but if the likes of Peru, Britain and Korea have shit #2 players then what does that make Japan's #1 player? Suzuki is ranked outside the top 200 and getting old. They overachieved to get as far as they did, and congrats to them, but they never really deserved a place in the World Group. At least Korea has a solid top 50 player who can cope very well on all surfaces.

You forget the Japanese young gun, Kei. He has good potential.
