I assume this matchup favours the South Africans, but I'm not sure how well their guys play on clay

Monaco have not lost in three years on clay, but that loss was to Norway :retard:

So South Africa should be pretty safe, especially since Balleret has seemed to struggle with his form, mostly playing futures events, unlike the South African guys. Lisnard might be good for a point, but I can't see him powering them to a win.

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.
