Kirsten Flipkens and Ysalyn Bonaventure lost in the doubles as Australia won 3–0.

Belgium exited after losing 2-1 to Slovakia on Wednesday and 3-0 to Australia on Thursday. Having already lost the second match, Johan van Herg’s Belgium could not salvage doubles honors as they lost the second set during their meeting with Elise Mertens, who conceded against Alja Domljanovic. Elise Mertens, troubled by pain in her right shoulder, has replaced Ysaline Bonaventure (WTA 299 in doubles) with Kirsten Flipkens (WTA 30). Earlier, Alisson van Uytvanck, on her return to competition, lost to Puel Saunders at the start of this second Belgian Group B meeting. Alison van Uytvanck, 28, world No. 54, out of rhythm since the US Open in early September with a back injury, surprised the world No. 237 with a 6-2 double in 1 hour and 13 minutes. The 26-year-old Belgian No. 1, world No. 29, then threw in the towel in the third set against the 29-year-old Australian, who trailed 4-6, 6-4, 3-0 after 1 hour. and 53 minutes. Only the winners of the four groups of three will qualify for the semi-finals. Alicia Molik’s Australia will face the winner of Group C, which features Spain, Kazakhstan and Great Britain. (Belga)
