Thanks for the explanations.

I find it all a wee bit confusing.

Meanwhile, the losers of GB-Slovakia, Finland-Netherlands and Denmark-Slovenia progress to the R1 play-off. But there are no teams waiting to play them there.

So what happens next? Are they assumed to lose to BYE, and go into the R2 play-off? Then what? The bottom half could be played between the two first round losers, but does the loser of Slovakia-GB automatically get relegated from the top half?
My understanding:

Top half:

Israel vs. Portugal - the winner goes into QG qualifying in September. The loser goes straight to the relegation play-off match in September.

Great Britain vs. Slovak Republic - the winner plays Belgium in April. The loser goes into 1st round relegation, with preliminary date in September.
--->If Belgium loses in April, it will play the loser of GBR vs SVK in 1st round relegation play-off, in September.
------>The loser of this tie would then play the relegation match against the loser of ISR vs. POR, in OCTOBER. The winner would preserve its status in Group I for 2013.
--->If Belgium wins in April, the loser of GBR vs SVK drops automatically from 1st round relegation into the relegation match with the loser of ISR vs POR. For Brits, this is an away tie (and not a nice one).


The same logic applies to the bottom half of the draw. Romania and South Africa both have R1 byes but, like Israel, Portugal, and Belgium, must play relegation match(es) if they lose their opening ties.

If the teams with bye lose their first match, they will drop down to the relegation part of the draw.

Re: 2012 World Group draw

No we don't. Playing playoffs is even more thilling.

But it's hard to choose a surface against Argentina and clay is probably the worst of DelPo and Flo can beat him there which he can't on other surfaces.
But as I said I would always choose grass in Halle as most German players are good on grass and most other players aren't really familiar with it. But of course DelPo and Nalby are good grass players.

But at least I think we should concentrate on Fed Cup.

Choosing clay against Argentina :epicfacepalm:

Does Germany even try to go far on Davis Cup? One semi final in 15 years, picking clay at home against Argentina...

Re: 2012 World Group draw

I am looking forward to sweden -serbia but without soderling it will be easy for the serbs.Also a nice match-up is canada -france.It might go tight if raonic shows up along with pospisil who could break top 50 this year

Re: 2012 World Group draw

Things are looking very interesting now. Since Spain will enter Davis Cup with a talented but still weaker cast (probably Almagro and Verdasco as their representatives), Switzerland's side of the draw looks more optimistic.

Federer and Wawrinka's first test is U.S.A.

Their main opponents here are Fish, Roddick, and the Bryan brothers. I don't know if they can defeat the Bryan brothers again even if they come up with an alternative doubles squad. So U.S. gets the advantage there. Federer will get his singles against Fish/Roddick (NID). From here, Wawrinka just has to win one of his matches against Fish or Roddick. He could potentially lose to Fish, but I doubt his all around game would falter to Roddick as we saw him dismantle him at the U.S. Open.

Against France. Things get very difficult here. The French will probably take the doubles. Then pressure on Federer to win both singles. The French can arguably go with Tsonga and Simon against Federer. Then Tsonga and Monfils against Wawrinka to try and get the best out of it.

If the Swiss miraculously survive this, a potential Spain, Kazakhstan, Russia, or Austria, should be simple and a relief before the finals.

Then in the finals they'd get the option of either Serbia or Argentina. I would assume Serbia would come out on top in that affair.

Then There can be a Switzerland-Serbia final and that would be quite an affair

So a slight possibility of Federer facing Djokovic at DC, at the Olympics, and at the slams, in a single year if he decides to take all the tournaments seriously.
