very predictably, looks like Portugal - Lithuania in the second round here
Yeah, and the match will be in Portugal, in clay. Probably with Gil back, Machado in better conditions and maybe Gastão Elias. Much more interesting tie, but Portugal is the favourite.
wait what? Portugal is in group 2?
And how did Benin get into group 2?
Sadly, yes. Our players weren't at their best shape last year and we played always away in hard courts. But we're a level up than all the other teams of Group II.
do portugal team allways play davis cup ties in the same arena and on the same courts ?
No, this CIF in Lisbon wasn't used on last 20 years. For the most important ties we generally use the Centralito, in Estoril.
