Brazilian captain Francisco Costa will announce the team nomination on next Monday (Sep. 09), which is the deadline for the nominations. Brazil will very likely have Bellucci in singles and Sá/Melo in doubles, so the second singles player is yet to be defined.

Players should play and train in Brazilian interclubs in the following weekend and then travel to Croatia.

Who are supposed to play for Croatia?

I bet on Thiago Alves for the second singles spot. He is much more a force at a hard court than Marcos Daniel. Honestly, if Costa chooses Daniel instead of him it would be a very dumb decision :o

It should have been easy against Brits too...;)
The real question us whether Mario is fit to play, for no Brasilian is match to him, and then Čilić won't have any trouble to score the third point.
I dont believe there is any confidence in Karlović left... He is some kind of lonely woolf, not a team player as I see.

And second,Ancic said himself that he is at 100%.He trained a lot during his break.
Doubles is your only realistic chance to get a point in a live rubber.:wavey:
