It's all going to come down to tomorrow. Can the Italians get the job done and pull of the upset? Or will the Swedes protect their home court. I think Poto and Robin may end up playing, because obviously the coaches understand the importance of this point. Please may Italy win! Forza Italia!

I'm not sure why Italy would change it's doubles team tbh. Bracciali seems to be focusing almost exclusively on the doubles tour now, and Bolelli has been competitive in this discipline (with Seppi). Fognini would be a bad choice, but I don't know if Starace could improve their chances in this rubber by playing. If I were the captain I wouldn't make any alterations.

I would also leave the nominated Swedish pairing as well.

Starace comes in for Bracciali...

Aspelin/Lindstedt vs Bolelli/Starace

Aspelin/Lindstedt can't play together.

Poto has been the best player on court today. He always comes through in Davis Cup

Italy has had chances the last three serve games of Sweden. They cannot allow this opportunity to slip. Get 'er done!!!!

I can't believe the Swedes blew a couple of set points in the 2nd set, then were embarrassed in the tiebreaker. Not looking good for Sweden.

Barely anyone in the crowd, and the ones making the most noise are Italians.
