The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Teams to qualify IMO: Austria (if Gonzalez doesn't play for Chile), Belgium, Brazil, France, South Africa, Serbia, Sweden and Switzerland (if Federer plays).

Horrible draw as usual for Italy (in last 3 WG playoffs, twice vs Spain, now vs Switzerland)

Brazil back to the WG.

My picks are Austria (or Chile, if Gonzalez comes back), Belgium, Brazil, France, South Africa, Serbia, Sweden (is Soderling playing?) and Switzerland.
