Moldova choose fast indoor hard, so no surprises here. It is the only way they can pull the upset, but I still think they won't :)

1st post updated with both teams. It's all about Joćo and the doubles match. Elias is coming from an injury, just like Pedro. And Rui Machado is far away from his best and sucks at hard court.

Vamos Portugal!

It's really fast. All on Joćo.

Gastćo and Rui have the game to master albot, even in hard...
If Gastćo is OK, i would place him and Joćo, both singles and doubles, even though Rui won very easy, against Dubarenco, recently.
Dubarenco can be dangerous, as he is a big guy, with decent results. Frederico Silva played him in Juniors many times, so he can tip Pedro Cordeiro.
I“m really hoping for a success and a good draw for next year...

Group II is definetly not where we belong tennis wise. Easily I division. But his match will probably be played in a ultra fast courts and we have only 1 in-form player. Gastao and Pedro coming back from long injuries, are going to make their return here. Gastao is the more worring one, as he would be a huge help, if in-form. He would actually be a even bigger weapon that Joćo.

And Machado, well, yet to reach is best (far far from it actually) since his several serious injuries in the last almost 2 years. This is the only half chance for a weak team like Moldova, have to beat a middle-high level european team like Portugal. But I still think we can do it.

It's all about Joćo Sousa. I believe we can win and we should win.

Good choice. It means that our best are ready. And you can shield Pedro and Rui for a possible surprise entrance in sunday!!

Don't know if it's a good idea to put Gastao in all 3 days, though. I think it can be very risky. He just came back from a 3 month elbow injury, without any competition prior to this DC tie.

If he doesn't feel ok tomorrow, Pedro can always change the double.
