Argentina v Sweden Live
In the Fed Cup, February 9th and 10th, Argentina and Sweden will play at the Parque Roca in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Argentina will be hosting this first round of the World Group II. They have gotten together twice before but the hosts have never been able to take home a victory. However, things may have changed quite a bit since then, since the last time these two teams faced off was around thirty five years ago. Argentina was able to earn their spot with a 2-0 win over Columbia and played off against China. They won 4-1 against them at Parque Roca.
Sweden ended up in the World Group II because they won two of the three round robin matches that they played in the Europe/Africa Zone Group I. They were able to beat Poland in the playoff, and then they defeated Britain at home 4-1 in the World Group II playoffs. The team nominations for Argentina include Paula Ormaechea and Maria Irigoyen. Also they have Forencia Molinero and Mailen Auroux and the team captain is Bettina Fulco. For Sweden, there is Sofia Arvidsson, Johanna Larsson, Hilda Melander and Sandra Roma with Lars Anders Wahlgren as captain.
