I'm not too convinced about an easy Netherlands win, Haase and Sluiter looked really bad in their most recent matches. It's probably a big mistake not to use Huta Galung on the first day.

Any livestream? Tv or anything?

Leonardo Tavares was in doubt for doubles. He was first option for singles match, but another injury... :rolleyes:

Portugal will have a "hard hard hard" tie. Frederico Gil is a claycourter specialist, like Rui Machado. Leonardo Tavares have many problems with injuries and since 2004 he can't play much in international circuit. Gastão is too young.

I hope Portugal can make better than expectations.

Go Portugal!!!

Yeahh, Leonardo Tavares could be very important in this tie but those injuries...Maybe Gil's confidence could give Portugal some boost.

Well...2-0 for Holland. But Gastão was quite impressive against Haase. Almost a big big surprise in here. Anyway, the doubles match tomorrow must be Portugal, and in the final day you never know...
