The International Tennis Federation confirmed on Wednesday that the upcoming Fed Cup tie between Israel and Indonesia will take place as scheduled, despite reports that the Indonesians would boycott. The Israel Tennis Association received word from the ITF in London that Indonesia would be arriving, and that the team's captain had already sent in his final list of players. The ITF added that at no point had it been contacted by the Indonesians regarding a possible withdrawal. The visiting team for the World Group II playoff tie will consist of Angelique Widjaja, Romana Tedjakusuma, Ayu-Fani Damayanti and Septi Mende. The captain is Suzanna Anggarkusuma. Shahar Pe'er returned from Wimbledon on Tuesday night and will begin practicing for the tie alongside teammate Tzipi Obziler on Thursday. Anna Smashnova is due to land Thursday and to join the training, under coach Dedi Jacob, on Friday. The fourth player, Yevgenia Savransky, is still competing at an ITF event in Stuttgart, Germany, and will join the squad immediately afterward. Sixteen-year-old prospect Julia Glushko has also been invited to practice with the team as a hitting partner. Now that the Indonesian team has confirmed its participation, the ITA is hoping to sell out the Canada Stadium in Ramat Hasharon's tennis center for the best-of-five tie, scheduled for July 15-16. Tickets are now on sale at NIS 50 (NIS 25 for children, students and soldiers).
