hopefully SA will get promoted, I don't want to see them in Group II next year
It's tough, as all the South Africans are absolute claycourt noobs. Anderson and De Voest are horrible on it. Haven't seen Izak play on clay, but his game is fitted to a tee to hardcourts, so I can't imagine him doing well.
Lisnard and Balleret, on the other hand, excel on the red dirt. Then again, Balleret is not in shape, and the Monegasque team has no doubles skills so South Africa has one win in the bag already.
