Australia vs Switzerland should be a good one if both Hewitt and Federer play for their respective nations!

They should've played the tie in Canada in let's say...at very high altitude on carpet. So...like play at indoor carpet in Whistler, BC or something if possible. That will boost our chances.

I really wanted both Russia and Brazil in the WG. Brazil missed their chance a few years ago in losing to Ecuador. Can't see them beating Russia, the singles should all win for the Russians.

They also shouldn't have lost to India last year, especially after leading 2-0.

Default Re: 2011 World Group play-offs

Yeah, but honestly I didn't expect them to beat India. But when leading 2-0, they should have won.

Bellucci and Mello are an OK team but Davydenko, Tursunov, Kunitysn, a combination of these three guys is too tough. Brazil has the doubles advantage, but I can't see them winning any singles rubbers.

I think Japan has a very good chance of beating India, especially since they're at home. Nishikori/Ito in singles is better than what India brings to the table. And a combination of Suzuki/Soeda or something like that is good in doubles too. I'd be surprised if Japan doesn't qualify.

I didn't want Austria or Belgium to be in the WG anymore also. So that's disappointing. IMO, several of the teams that will lose in the final round are better than both teams. I think Belgium will win that tie.

Bellucci can beat both Russian singles players. And our doubles will win too. If Bellucci lost one of his matches, Mello has chances to win his match against Russian's second player.

GO GO BRAZIL

I think Brazil beat Russia. Bellucci and Mello wins the game at the #2 of Russia, and Brazil wins in doubles
