Yeah, the points are collected from a few years backwards probably. Slovaks have that final appearance from 2005 counting for them and Korea has been steadily chugging along the World Group Playoffs for two years now.

Serbia has advanced for two years in a row and now they lost in the first round of the World Group so not much additional points gained there. They are a team no seed wants to face, though.

Of course there will be the customary Brazil - Slovakia -tie as always but that's part of the charm of Davis Cup.

Done according to ranking but, yeah...amazing how a number of the unseeded nations are a hell of a lot stronger than a few of the seeded ones, combined.

I was reather worried about GBR's qualifying chances...looking at that list, we have a realistic chance against all of them...although Australia and Croatia are probably the two best avoided. No doubt we will draw one of them. :help: :eek: :tape:

Good to see Korea seeded. They deserve it too after their form in the last few years. :yeah:

Hopefully they can draw Brazil, Peru, India or Netherlands. Although Chile and Great Britain would be fun too. Korea have never even played any of these teams, except for India of course.
