Belgium and Poland meet for the second time in Fed Cup in the World Group II play-offs. Belgium won their only previous meeting on Polish hard courts in Bydgoszcz in 2010, with Yanina Wickmayer making the difference for the visitors with two singles wins.
Belgium faces relegation to Europe/Africa Group I in 2013 after they were stunned 4-1 by Switzerland in the World Group II first round. Yanina Wickmayer grabbed the only win for Ann Devries' side as Romina Oprandi put on a heroic debut to carry the Swiss to victory.
Poland are seeking to return to World Group II for the first time since 2010 after coming through Europe/Africa Zone Group I. In the promotional play-off, the Radwanska sisters combined to defeat Croatia 2-1 after Urszula Radwanska had lost the opening rubber to rising star Ana Konjuh.
