with Youzhny and Davydenko in his current form? I don't think so. But Russia has been having some attitude problems in the last few years, and that's their drawback.

Re: World Group 1st Round: Israel at France (February 1-3, 2013)

I understand Romania, GBR, Russia... but Sweden??? with Soderling virtually retired, Israel is much stronger than Sweden. They hardly have any singles players anymore. In fact, if Soderling is not back, I think Sweden is the prime candidate for relegation to group 2.
I would understand if you wrote Poland, Slovenia, Ukraine... If they are with full squads and in good form, they are much stronger than Israel.
But I agree that Israel's strength is its heart and spirit... a Davis cup overachiever in a big way, against the odds almost every time. However, delivering such a miracle against a team like France is a very tall order. Too much even for magicians like them.

I think Filip Prpic of Sweden had a similar ranking during last years tie against Serbia.

I think Noam Okun will play play this tie (highest rank 162) was a good davis cup player but have no chance to win against those guys..
