:scratch: not only the Arevalo brothers are missing, Rappaccioli was playing for Nicaragua earlier this year

Now they have the Arevalo brothers playing for El Salvador in this tie at daviscup.com, but originally they released a different nomination. According to local news, Rapaccioli has 3 nationalities (El Salvador, Nicaragua and USA) and the Arevalo brothers were out of the team because of a lack of agreement with the local tennis federation

Final positions: 1. El Salvador, 2. Bolivia, 3. Cuba, 4. Puerto Rico, 5. Costa Rica, 6, Barbados, 7. Honduras.

El Salvador and Bolivia promoted to Group II. Honduras relegated to Group IV (I'm not sure if Barbados too, since Haoiti withdrew).

Cuba was close to promotion :hug:
