I think Uzbekistan because I think Iroda is stronger than DeLos Rios and I've never heard of either of the guys
However the Paraguay guy is ranked higher thanIroda's partner

Paraguay

I think Rossana probably will lose her singles but I believe Ramon should win his singles. And I hope they win the mix match.

I agree with Alx. Although when Rossana's groundies are working ..... they realy are quite heavy.... i would not completely count her out against an off form Iroda.

Paraguay. Rossana can play really well when shes on, and Iroda is off her game so often that anything can happen in that match. I think Ramon should win too. I have no idea whos better at doubles.

Go Paraguay!!

I like both Rossana and Iroda though. This depends on Iroda. If she serves big and has her groundies in shape then Rossana is going to stuggle. Delgado should win the men's and the doubles I give the edge to Uzbekistan.

Rossana vs. Iroda

Don't know who will win this one. I'd pick Iroda. Her game is better suited to indoors on hardcourt.

Ramon vs. Oleg

Oleg usually plays above himself in team competitions. Ramon is ranked higher. I'll pick Oleg in three sets. He's a feisty competitor.

Paraguay vs. Uzbekistan

Ramon is the strongest doubles player out there but Iroda and Oleg will be avoiding him and targeting Rossana, the weakest link.

Looks like Uzbekistan might take it but I still wouldn't bet firmly against Paraguay.

Iroda and Oleg (Ogodorov) will win, I hope. Iroda should be confident enough to blow Rossanna off the court. Don`t mistake me I like Rossanna, but Iroda should be fit and injury free, and then she is in another league than Rossanna.

Oleg is an old fox who knows what to do in a fight.

The pitcures arent working Salima

Iroda and Oleg, I have seen Iroda play before when she was competing in Junior Tournaments, Iroda simply because she is a better player and people know her more for various reasons, and I can't remember a Paraguayan women player, Iroda is also a clean doubles player, They will get further I think then what the Paraguayans will get.
