Shame on you Trolla and Bedene. Hope karma bites you in the ass for withdrawing. Should still beat POR, though.

Why are you PORs saying that Kavcic is the favorite in both matches? Sousa is ranked much better. At the same time you were getting all whiny when I said Semrajc can beat anyone...

I understand your anger. I also would be if three of the best tennismen in my country refuse to play daviscup...
But hey! Home advantage is always big factor, so for me it´s 50/50.
And i know Semrajic can be very dangerous (and our players too!)

How on earth is this a WG tie? Such a mug tie.

I saw the matches from Elias in Bucaramanga and he seems in good shape, although he lost in R2. He´s confirmed for the tie so, i´m happy!
I believe he´ll play the doubles match, but not sure about the singles. If Machado is in good form, he should play at least one rubber.
Watching the match record for Semrajc, you can see he only plays clay tournaments. Is that a sign that he, or his body, doesn´t like hard courts?
Go Portugal!

I went to google Semrajc cause I did not know much about him. He barely played outside clay in his entire career. Not even 3% of his pro matches were outside clay. He has promising results in the dirt, though. But this is going to be in Indoor Hard, so I'm not sure if this is the best option for Slovenia. Hopefully it isn't

Re: Europe/Africa Group I 1st Round: Portugal at Slovenia (Jan 31- Feb 02, 2014)

Nuno Marques told to Record that he is putting Sousa and Elias in singles and doubles. Machado should stand as a joker for the fifth rubber if needed. Nuno also told that Zemlja is hitting with the team, so only after the draw you can be certain of who is playing... I thought that only in case of injury you coul substitute with non nominated player, but Roger wasn´t nominated for switzerland, and he is playing... Anyone can explain?

You can change two nominations up to two hours before the draw without having to give out any reasons.

Re: Europe/Africa Group I 1st Round: Portugal at Slovenia (Jan 31- Feb 02, 2014)

From Daviscup.com:
«Slovenia fans, I have to tell you that Tom Kocevar-Desman is out of the team's Europe/Africa Zone Group I tie against Portugal. He is being replaced by Grega Zemlja. The winner of that tie plays Israel in the second round in April - and those teams will then fight for a place in the World Group Play-Off»
Sneaky, slovenians and swiss´s. Hope the team gets even more eager to win.

Elias has a chance against Kavcic. If he defeats him, then it is GSM Portugal already today. VAMOS!
