Italy won the tie 5-0 over Slovenia!!!! Great performance from Poto in his singles and he and Daniele make a great doubles pair. Daniele played great in the doubles match.
In the WG playoff stage they will play one of Czech Republic, Russia, Israel, Croatia, India, Chile, Austria, or Romania.
The only teams on that list I don't want to see Italy play are the Czechs and Russia. Russia would be a road tie, and on fast indoor courts, that wouldn't be a good match-up. The Czechs have Berdych, and Stepanek plays great in Davis Cup.
Croatia would be a home tie and they can beat Croatia at home on clay. The teams we most want to play are Romania, Austria and Chile.
Hopefully Italy can make the world group this year
