Belgium slip-sliding in Fed Cup



Belgium looks destined to sink to the third division of the Fed Cup with its top player uncertain to play, the No 2 already a no-show and the federation unwilling to pick favoured clay because of the financial cost.

Yanina Wickmayer on Tuesday confirmed her omission from the World Group II playoff against Poland on April 20-21 and in-form Kirsten Flipkens said she would make a decision later. It could leave fourth-ranked Agnieszka Radwanska and her sister Urszula facing no player ranked higher than 183rd in in the world.

It is a far cry from the days, only a few years back, when Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin dominated women's tennis. Belgium won the Fed Cup in 2001 and reached the final in 2006.
