Portugal team anounced: João Sousa, Gastão Elias, Rui Machado and Frederico Silva. João Domingues as sub.
Expected.
Expecting a Nieminen motivated to find more positive moments than the last few months on tour...
Still, with the outdoor clay and croud support i´ll give 60% for Portugal...

Any news from the finn squad?

60/70% that Portugal wins, only Nieminen is really a thread..

M.Kontinen had a wrist surgery and hasn't played since three months. Don't know if he's ready. That would make 2 singles like walkovers for Portugal, but we can still get a decider between Jarkko and Sousa.

Friday: J.Sousa v. H.Sillampaa, followed by J. Nieminen v. R.Machado. Elias only choosed for doubles. Portugal opted for experience, considering also a bad lose-win ratio of Elias in DC. For me Sousa must win Nieminen to Portugal win the tie.

I must admit that Jarkko is a classy guy. After beating Rui he said some nice words about Rui and after losing the doubles yesterday he said some nice words about the Portuguese crowd. He gained my respect, too bad for him that he will lose again today...
