maybe you just have to find out the top 30 players ranking first?

and out of topic, how do we find out which country the person is? when i put my cursor over the flag, it only says country flag, it doesnt say anything like the name of the country flag

If you right click on the flag and click properties it will tell you which flag it is. But at the same time, Felipe or I could open a DC teams thread where we can have team recruting, personally, I dont care if someone from Singapore plays for someone else cuz the wont have a team otherwise, Id rather try to keep it to teams of four, but like in TT, where Jess isnt from Serbia but plays for Serbia, thats completely fine with me.

What do you guys think?

yeah but if im not wrong, jess plays for serbia cause serbia is in the world group, and has no representatives, so she choose them, im not sure though.

yeah, minimum of 2 players will be enough though.

That's fine for me also. I mean, it'd be nicer to play for your real country but if they have no space for more players. Teams with only 1 players are unreal. I mean, I could stand it but it'd look unreal. Real Davis Cup teams only play with 2 players or more.

We could set up the thread by now and then have a period for the top 16 teams (with you idea based on rankings positions) to commit and recruit their players. The highest players from each country would be the leader unless they do not want to. Countries with less than 2 players would have this period to convince players from "populated" countries like USA, Argentina, etc to join them. Then, after this period, if all the slots are not ocupated, then commitments for rest of the countries would be free. The countries that do not make into the draw would play World Group Qualifying Round in September.
The slots for the countries that join World Group not by "ranking" way would be given based on their rankings

then i mus give credit to gavnich then

so we wilL have the 16 countries. by default, if there are 5 USA players in the top 16 rankings, then the top ranked one wilL be the captain and he or she can choose 3 others to represent USA. Then the last remaining USA player can choose not to play DC or he can switch allegiance.

How?
