Europe/Africa Group I 1st round: Slovak Republic at Great Britain (Feb. 10-12, 2012)
Team Nominations :
James Ward (ATP 158 Singles) - Daniel Evans (ATP 276 Singles) - Colin Fleming (ATP 28 Doubles) - Ross Hutchins (ATP 37 Doubles)
Lukas Lacko (ATP 65 Singles) - Martin Klizan (ATP 120 Singles) - Filip Polasek (ATP 21 Doubles) - Michal Mertinak (ATP 61 Doubles)
Great Britain without Andy Murray, Slovaks with redhot Lukas Lacko - maybe key factor.
I expect Lacko to win his rubber against Evans and Klizan to have a very close match against Ward on Friday.
Tough Saturday doubles match, both teams has a very decent doubles players, could go both ways really.
On Sunday I expect Lacko to beat Ward and (if necessary) Klizan to beat Evans too.
Your predictions ?
Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco
Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem
