Go Brazil!

I think that Brazil can win of India with 5-0.

Kostas Kastoria is the King, is the Legend, is the Pantheon of Tennis Tipping.

Saulin, Felipin and Niltin are the players that have the mission to continue the Greek Legacy.

Hellas Team with the Bless of Baghdatis and Kostas.

This tie is more competitive than one would think. I hope Brazil wins. If Somdev beats Mello tomorrow things will get interesting. It could be a asswhipping for Brazil and it could be a tight victory for India, it will all depend on the second tie tomorrow.

Yes, it isn't easy to call.

Bellucci should beat Bopanna...a much better singles player, and unless the conditions bother him he should be fitter over a distance match. He can't afford to have mental lapses though.

Devvarman and Mello really could go either way imo, although I'd probably lean slightly to Mello. I've never been totally convinced by Somdev, and while Mello has done some outrageous flat-track bullying this year I think there is a little more class to his game.

The doubles is very tough to call. India should obviously be the favourites, but Melo and Soares will be tough. Soares is decent, but Melo is the weak link though, imo...he is a little wooden and I'm not sure his reflexes will be quick enough to keep up with the barrage from Bhupathi and Paes.

I'll go with a Brazil win...I think they'll get 3 points from the singles.

It's a very tricky tie indeed. As much as Thomaz should be a clear favourite against Rohan, he doesn't inspire that much of a confidence. Anything can happen really, it's closer to a 50-50 tie than Brazil being the clear favourite.
