My thoughts and expectations:
In my opinion, the strongest teams here (in no particular order) are Korea, France, Italy, and Australia. I think we are good too and can possibly make it out of round robin, but the fact that it's clay hurts us quite a bit (and probably hurts Australia as well). On the other hand, teams like Argentina and Brazil expectedly have very successful 16 and under clay court players and could possibly pull an upset IF they're lucky/bring they're A game. The rest of the teams are either not strong enough at the number 1 position (cough Japan? cough), not deep enough at the bottom of their lineup (cough Sweden and Russia? cough), or just noticeably weaker all around.

side note - I'm actually surprised that Russia chose Rublev over Safiullin since the latter has only lost three times all year. Since he was playing a tournament this week (so not injured), it could be that he rejected an offer to join the team.

In the end, I predict Italy will make the finals. Quinzi is just too good and Baldi is good enough for them to win. But I can't decide who will join them. I'd have to see the draw first to take a guess at that.
