Pretty good actually. The Kazakhs needs Golubev to find his a-game to have a chance obviously. He can play lights out a couple times each year.

I think Kazakshtan would picked Kukusckin and Golubev for singles, Kukuschkin and Schukin can play doubles. Schukin is not bad on clay.
For Spain, it's a pity that Nadal, Ferrer or ever F. Lopez or Verdasco are not in the team. But Almagro deserve a place since log time. But Ferrero ? With the loss of the four players i spoe about, i would prefer have tryed someone like Garcia-Lopez. In doubles,it's good that M. Lopez has is chance. But again, GArcia-Lopez proove a lot with Andujar this year and eventually with Gmeno-TRaver who win this week in Vina Del Mar.
But in final, Spain must win pretty easily this tie
