He reached the SF last year (L to Federer) and the Q the time before that (2009, L to Djokovic). He should have decent chances in Basel also, even though Stepanek's record is similar.

Berdych, however, has lost in R1 in Basel three years in a row.

The problem is except Del Potro they don`t have any top guy to win the big matches.U never know if Nalbandian will keep on playing and even Del Potro isn`t sure with his injury history.Guys like Monaco or Berlocq or who knows who can`t be trusted to win a big DC rubber.

Argentina will always play at home next year except if they have to play in the Czech Republic (they won in Czech Republic two years ago). And on clay, Monaco can beat many players.

He was still near from beating Berdych last week-end and Berdych was on good form.

If they're at home, Argentina's main problem is the doubles, but I think it's possible to make a good double for clay with Nalbandian and another one.

i wont predict who will win but my thoughts:

- canada and germany got screwed over again with 2 of the toughest first rounds possible. Canada isnt beating spain if they couldnt beat france. Germany MIGHT have a shot at argentina if kohli and haas play but thats a big maybe

- without ljubo italy has a serious shot at the upset over croatia

- Belgium got one of the hardest draws. Although if novak doesnt play this is another one like with argentina and germany that i could poossibly see belgium winning but it would take alot of luck. They could win the doubles and, again if novak doesnt play then ..who knows?

- United states should win comfortably.

- kazakhstan and austria got giften this draw..neither one should be in the world group and they keep getting soft draws

- Switzerland v.s Czech republic should be the tie of the round. Very interesting. But if federer doesnt play then czech should roll through

Great draw for Serbia!

Going for the title again.

Belgium will probably receive Serbia on clay, just after the Australian Open.

Long jetlag between Australia and Argentina-Germany as well.

Spain of course will be big favorite but as for the match against France, the double was a very good one and very tight (Llodra-Benneteau against Raonic-Nestor) and Raonic could not play the last single because of the doctors who had given him a bad advice, it seems.

Who knows ? On a fast surface, Raonic might win two singles, and the doubles, but it would be surprising.

Would be nice to see Djokovic play all the rubbers. If he did, fancy Serbia as dark horses.

For Fed, it would be better playing a DC semifinal in Argentina with a chance for a DC final than a play-off who knows where.

Maybe it will be his last chance to "save" his year, who knows.

What sort of surface do you think they'd play the Czechs on? Can't decide myself. I guess indoor hard? I'm not too familiar with the sorts of surfaces available to them.

I think indoor hard, because they have no permanent indoor claycourt and last year, they realized after the tie against the USA that it was very tough to make a proper one for that time of the year because of the coldness in Switzerland.

Moreover, this year, the tie will be the week after the Australian open and not one week later, and Fed will probably prefer playing on a indoor hardcourt at this moment.

But I think they would choose a slow one, as it's better for Wawrinka and worse for Stepanek.

Wawrinka often gives problems to Berdych by the way. He leads the H2H 5-4 (3-4 on hardcourts, 0-3 indoors)
