The two best Spanish players in the world ranking will be part of the team that will face Belgium in the qualifying round of promotion to Grupo Mundial that will take place on April 20 and 21 at Cortrique, under roof and on fast track. Aliona Bolsova (140th), Georgina García (184th) and María José Martínez (19th in doubles) complete the set presented on Wednesday by the captain, Anabel Medina, at CSD, accompanied by the president of the Federación Española, Miguel Díaz, the secretary of Estado for Deporte, María José Rienda, and its executive adviser, Jennifer Pareja.

"Va to be a difficult eliminator. The field factor is important and it is indoor and on a fast track, the best for them. But that does not mean that Spain can not win on this surface, we already did it in Japan. Our team is very powerful, with very competitive players who are in form. We have very high chances of winning the tie, "said Medina, protagonist of the last series that faced both countries in 2004." The elimination was very beautiful, spectacular , we go back, "recalls the Valencian ex-player, who faced Kirsten Flipkens, one of the Belgian rivals in the match next week.

Belgium will not have Elise Mertens (17th), her best player and will form with Alison Van Uytvanck (52nd), Flipkens (55th), Ysaline Bonaventure (112th) and Yanina Wickmayer (126th). After winning the title in Monterrey, Muguruza is training at home, at Ginebra, this week, and Carla Suárez returns to España after being eliminated in the first round of Lugano by the Slovenian Hercog. Bolsova also fell on Tuesday in Bogotá against the Polish Linette and Georgina García, in the ITF of Obidos before the Georgian Shapatava; María José Martínez did not compete.

"I was surprised that Mertens did not play, because he played the last tie and won the title in Doha and the doubles of Indian Wells and Miami. She is the most powerful player. Saying that you do not have to be alert, but it is true that he is number one on his team and does not play, "said Medina, who knows this and values the tie:" It is true that Belgium is with players without a lot of name, but they have won difficult games against very good players in their best surface There is to try to go for them from the beginning, but without trusting us although Spain is in a very good situation ". The balance of clashes in Copa Federation is 4-3 in favor from España.
