I definitely think this match could be a bit tougher than you all are expecting. On paper, yes, we should kick the crap out of them. And we probably will
BUT, we still have to come ready to play. The two Austrian players are not easy by any stretch.
Barbara Schwartz: big wins against Coetzer, V. Williams, Panova.
Injuries are the only reason she's not in the top 25. A big lefty with a booming serve and beautiful vollies, she has the potential to at least take her matches to 3 sets.
Evelyn Fauth: big wins against Sidot, Dominikovic, Avants
This girl is basically a human backboard. Unfortunately, that's all she has. She's not aggressive at all, and more likely to retrieve a short ball and run back to the baseline than come to net. She could frustrate her opponents briefly, but I can't see her beating them.
My prediction is 5-0 for U.S., but I do expect tough, competitive matches, not the 50 minute prancewalks
