Spain retains its No. 1 position on the new ITF Davis Cup Nations Ranking ahead of 2002 champion Russia, who switches places with Australia. Croatia climbs three places to No. 4, while Slovak Republic rises two places to No. 6.

Seedings for the Zonal Group I and Group II competitions will also be based on the latest Davis Cup Nations Ranking, which is published following every Davis Cup weekend.
Here's a spreadsheet (pdf) I created to show the locations of all World Group ties in 2006:

croatia has a great chance to do well again because we'd face just about every seeded team (except for russia) at home. hopefully we'll get lucky and draw chile or something in the first round

I don't think getting Chile is luck. Netherlands, Belarus and Austria are weaker opponents (and Switzerland without Roger)

yes, but, unlike those other three teams, we'd play them at home and putting them on a fast carpet would give us an easy victory

You should check Athens result to see how good any chilean can play behind ''La Roja''.

edit, according to the ITF rules, the potential Chile-Argentina would be played in argentinian soil.

The last tie between Argentina v. Chile was in Argentina, therefore the next tie will be in Chile:

That's right, but there is an official tie, don't know why it's not in that link, that finished with a walkover from ARG (played in Santiago de Chile) due to disturbs. Chile got a suspension, but officialy, Chile was declared as the winner.

Okay, you're right. They play at home and will have a chance if Okun wins both matches I think.
Israel will have it very difficult but they are playing at home and have solid Doubles pair. I think it will all depend on the form of Sela and Okun at that specific time, because right now I don't think either can beat Djovoic

And Roger will have a chance of retribution over Lleyton's 5 set win over him in the semi-s last year at home this time as Switzerland draw Australia. Don't like Lleyton's chances so much this time do you?! I see the Carter Cup going to Switzerland this time!
