The India Tennis Association (AITA) selection committee chose the group following a digital assembly on Tuesday.
Riya Bhatia, that had been a playing member this past year, is going to be the book player of the group, which is captained by Vishal Uppal.
Contrary to the Davis Cup, where doubles is played third game after the 2 singles and prior to both opposite singles, at the Billie Jean King Cup format, doubles is played since the previous game.
This way, Sania’s encounter will depend only when another Indian players may extend the tie into the previous game.
“While Riya Bhatia is rated second in India supporting Ankita, the committee chose Zeel since she’s in great shape and has improved outcomes. Additionally, we’re taking a look at future. Zeel plays strong tennis and has it in her to place rivals under stress,” a source from the committee told PTI.
“In a format in which you have four singles matches to perform, you need your players to maintain playing side. She’s a huge game and may hurt rivals.
“Karman missed the previous time due to injury. It is her opportunity to perform well,” the source added.
“It is a major boost for the group because we’ve been there,” said captain Vishal Uppal.
“We all are anticipating this particular tie, Sania would also be enthusiastic. It’ll be a building block for girls tennis in India.
The tie is going to be a challenging test for the Indians since Latvia are predicted to be directed by former French Open champion and world number 53 Jelena Ostapenko and 2018 US Open semifinalist Anastasija Sevastova, who’s rated 56 today but has been placed 11th at February 2018.
They’d run Serena-Williams directed USA close from the Qualifiers tie this past year.
Uppal said all he’s anticipating from the tie is his players provide their very best.
“Should we succeed, nothing similar to it, or even, we’ll be richer in experience. There are no 2 ways, we wish to win but when we play with best tennis, then to help girls tennis in India. That’ll make me happy”
Asked how he would mentor the negative once the competitions are in fact more powerful, Uppal said”which makes us dangerous.”
“Should they underestimate us, then it’ll be a mistake. Nobody expects us to win but we’ve got desire to triumph. We’ll have strategies in place”
India’s hopes will lie Ankita, with a bent for hitting her weight, to elongate the tie deep.
The World Group Play-offs of this championship, formerly called Fed Cup, have now been postponed twice before as a result of coronavirus pandemic.
