We'll probably get Colombia again, this time away. If they are smart enough, they'll pick hardcourt instead of clay and our chances to reach the playoffs again won't be that good.

Peru should get to playoffs unless Canada shock them on clay.

I think that for Switzerland, USA is easier than facing Argentina or Spain as away though.

Argentina vs Czech Republic away will be a hard stop... hope France to win :S

Yeah, I think it's kind of unfair in a way that Asia still gets only 2 spots, with no team in WG. Australia will have a real hard time in India.

Benidorm to host tie
The Spanish federation have announced that Benidorm will host the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas 1st Round tie between Spain and Serbia that takes place March 6-8.

A 16,000 seater stadium will be erected in the coastal town that could see world No. 1 Rafael Nadal play world No. 3 Novak Djokovic.

There is still no decision though on who will take over from captain Emilio Sanchez Vicario, who stepped down after Spain become the 2008 champions in Mar del Plata. Former player Alberto Costa had appeared to be the front-runner, but other names now in the pot are Alex Corretja, Sergio Bruguera and the federations's sporting director Javier Duarte.
