Whoever is interested in playing the 2007 edition of PAW Davis Cup, post your commitment here. Don't forget to post also the country you are playing for.

The rules are as of following:

1. Each country needs at least 2 players and at most 4 players to form a team.

2. If there are more than 4 commited players from a given country, the four best ranked players (as of January 15) will be part of the team.

3. Deadline for commitment is 0:00 GMT of Monday February 5.

3.1. If there are more than 16 countries commited by the deadline, the tie will be broken by summing up the ranking of the two best-ranked players of each country (as of January 15) and classifying them from the smaller to the bigger sum.

3.2. If there are less than 16 countries commited by the deadline, more commitments will be accepted within a 24-hour period, but the teams that commit after the deadline will be accepted by order of commitment and not by ranking.

3.3. If by 0:00 GMT of Tuesday February 6, there are still less than 16 teams commited, the first round will be played on a league format, with the best 8 teams qualifying to the Quarterfinals.

4. The playing rules, the first round draw and scoring points will be posted on Wednesday, February 7, or Thursday, February 8, in a proper thread in the Davis Cup 2007 forum.

It could be done... then the format would depend on the number of teams that commit. Let's wait until the deadline ends and then we'll see what can be done.

Yes, look at the second post in this thread. Teams with less than four commited players still have spots open.

First Round will be a league like in 2006? becouse if we play like last year, there will be no problem if there are more than 16 nations.

Yes, it could be done this way. I think it's better than dividing the teams into World Group, Group I, etc. We do a first round in league format, and then the best 8 teams qualify to the second round.

Now we have 24 teams.
You can do "World group 2" from 8 teams and then in the next year you can continue it.
In "World group 2" will be only one round and the winners will play against the loosers from "World group 1"

There are currently 20 confirmed teams for the first round. The first round will be played on a league format, with the best eight teams qualifying for the second round. That way we don't have to worry about the number of teams commited. Everyone gets to play the World Group.

Still a few hours until the deadline. The following nations need at least one more player to complete the team: Austria, Canada, Denmark and The Netherlands.

yeah well ok but it would say, as davis cup is a team competition, that a nation must have 2 players (as said in the rules) otherwise there won't be much of a team competition anymore....but i'd agree that everyone with 2 up to 4 should be able to enter, and then the 2 best ones count

EDIT: thanks shotgun, it's really cool that everyone who wants to enter can play, that way :)
