Default World Group Play-off: Ukraine at Spain (September 13-15, 2013)

SPAIN vs UKRAINE

TIE PREVIEW
Spain host Ukraine in what will be the first meeting between these two sides in Davis Cup history. Both sides will be desperate to earn a win and compete in the World Group for next year. This is unsure territory for Spain, who have only competed in four play-offs in the last 17 years.
Spain are in the World Group play-off after losing 3-2 to Canada in the first round. Spain were without a number of their top players but will be looking to bounce back from that disappointing defeat. This was Spain's first loss in the first round since 2006, when they were stunned by Belarus.
Ukraine are in the World Group play-off following two 3-2 wins this year. They defeated Sweden in the Europe/Africa Zone Group I second round, coming back from 2-1 down, with Sergiy Stakhovsky winning the deciding rubber. Ukraine lost their only previous World Group play-off to Belgium 3-2 in 2009.

In theory, even if Dolgo would beat both Spanish players, Spain takes the doubles and I don't think Stakhovsky can beat anyone (given that they at least call the likes of Almagro, Verdascoo, Granollers...) I'll say 4-1 Spain.

Why Verdasco is playing the singles match over Robredo is beyond me

Yeah I couldn't quite work that one out either although I expect Verdasco to take care of business still.

The Ukraine team has changed line-up: we see left-handed Vladyslav MANAFOV (Date of birth: 22 Apr 1993, Singles ranking: 620) instead Nedovyesov

Ah, sad longing ... but I understand that real Ukrainian team at the moment is weaker than even a second of the Spanish national team
