Re: The Everything Davis Cup Thread (News, Articles, Live Scores)
Australia has been seeded so we will get one of the following matchups (of course squads could change from their last ties).
Austria – Melzer, Koellerer, Fischer, Knowle – Away
Belgium – O.Rochus, C.Rochus, Malisse, Darcis - Home
Brazil – Bellucci, Daniel, Melo, Soares – Home
Colombia – Falla, Giraldo, Salamanca, Cabal - Lot
Italy – Bolelli, Bracciali, Lorenzi, Starace - Home
Kazakhstan – Golubev, Kukushkin, Schukin, Yessenbekov - Lot
Romania – Hanescu, Tecau, Copil, Ungur - Away
South Africa – De Voest, Klaasen, Moodie, Van Der Merwe – Home
Probably be hoping for Kazakhstan, South Africa or Brazil. Brazil and Italy are good draws as Australia can play them on grass. Australia wouldn't mind drawing Belgium. Romania would be a difficult away draw with Hanescu capable of winning both ties and their doubles team isn’t too bad. Austria would be the one Australia will want to avoid although Colombia could turn into a horror draw if they get the homeground advantage which would most likely be played at very high altitude.
