Italy @ 21
Australia @ 21

Serbia is the obvious favourite, but I don't think they are deadset winners. Djokovic should not lose, but Ivanovic is likely not going to win all her matches. Could come down to the doubles and neither are great doubles players as showed last year. Upset loss to Italy and not to make final.

Usa probably shouldn't be the second seeds. Venus has not done much since coming back from injury only the 1 tournament win & may struggle against AMG, Isner is coming up against 2 very good players who should beat him. I would be surprised if they make the final.

Germany are short odds. Petkovic is a good player but quite erratic. Haas is a veteran but may struggle. 1 win only.

France team built around Tsonga. Arguably in the weaker group. If johannson plays well they may have a chance to progress.

Spain. A experienced pair. Both solid singles players and play good doubles together. My pick to progress from there group

South Africa. Can't really seeing them doing much. Maybe 1 win.

Australia. Good experience and match practice for 2 young players. Possibly could cause an upset if Tomic's head is screwed back on.

Italy. Unbelievable. How can this team be such outsiders on the odds is beyond me.

My tip for the Final - Italy vs Spain
Spain to win.
Well atleast I got the winner correct.

Very happy I put $40 on that at 15:1
