It seems that we've managed to write a relatively long article about a team competition and not mention anything about team makeup. How many players on each team? The article doesn't say. By looking at the specifc articles for each nation's team, it seems that it was three originally and nowadays it is 4. But what about backup players? How many players can each team have on the side in order to replace someone if necessary? All of those are pertinent pieces of information for understanding this event that the article completely overlooks. Redux 13:26, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Further questions arising from team makeup: What about the Williams' sisters?? Surely they represented US over the period from 2000 ... yet 2000 was the last time US won the Cup!!? What's happening there? Did they not represent the US at all over that period? Why has US won no cup over the past 13 years with the consistent stunning performances of the Williams' sisters available to the country??124.176.220.140 (talk) 10:17, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
