Playing on grass, I give the US a big change to go through. Like it was said before, you'll never see Gonzales or Massu get very far in a grass tournament, not at Wimbledon, but not at the smaller ones either.
I was at the La Jolla tie and was quite proud
Well, Gonzo did make the QF at Wimby last year and Gave Fed a pretty good match, but I know what you mean. And I agree
We should be favored but it's DC so the team can't take them lightly even though it's at home and on grass. Based on the amount of Chilean fans I saw at Massu's first round match in Indian Wells, there might be more (and more LOUDER) Chilean fans at the tie than Americans, and that's disconcerting
