The DC site is not updated, but from Spanish-language news:

Piero Luisi y José Antonio De Armas vencieron cómodamente en sencillos para ayudar a Venezuela a tomar ventaja de 2-0 en la serie que disputan por el Grupo 2 de la Zona Americana de la Copa Davis.

Luisi, que figura en el puesto 597 del escalafón mundial, superó a Van Haasteren (1.564 en el ránking) por 7-5, 6-2 y 6-4.

En el primer partido de sencillos, José Antonio De Armas (278) venció 3-6, 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 a Romano Tatuhey.

So no surprise to see the hosts 2-0 up, though for de Armas to drop a set is somewhat surprising.

Tatuhey now playing for AHO too, eh? Or maybe he did before, but I must have missed it. He was once seen as a promising junior, but missed the boat completely. Good job to take a set off De Armas.

AHO should be the favourites in doubles, but really, Van Haasteren isn't all that good.

I remember when Netherlands Antilles played against Brazil some years ago. Mullings got triple bageled by Mello, but Alexander Blom gave a hard time to Guga. I liked the way the guy played and saw his name at some futures last year, but it seems he didn't go to Venezuela to play this tie.

Antilles avoid a sweep, manage a point from the dead rubbers :yeah:

R5 - P.LUISI (VEN) def. N.VAN ROSBERG (AHO) 6-3 6-1
