Europe/Africa Zone Group I Relegation Play-off: Poland at Finland (16-18 Sept 2011)
 
Finland and Poland will try to avoid relegation to Group II in this Group I playoff that will be held in Espoo, Finland. The countries have met 5 times in Davis Cup resulting in 3 victories for Finland and 1 for Poland.

Finland lost to Slovenia 3-2 away in the Europe/Africa Zone Group I first round. The tie was decided in the fifth rubber when Grega Zemlja overcame Micke Kontinen in four sets.

Poland lost to Israel 3-2 in the Europe/Africa Zone Group I second round in Ramat Hasharon. The hosts raced into a 3-0 lead after Dudi Sela and debutante Amir Weintraub won the opening singles rubbers, paving the way for the doubles duo of Andy Ram and Jonathan Erlich to clinch the vital third point.

Neither Finland nor Poland have ever reached the World Group. The Polish have spent the last three years in Group I while Finland was promoted from Group II last year.

This is hard for me, I'm torn. I like both teams, but I think Poland with their best roster has a team good enough for the WG, Finland not quite. So I sort of hope they win.

Janowicz v Kontinen in the first rubber is the key match of the tie

It seems to be on a Finnish pay tv channel. Can no one here watch it?
