Will be tough, simply because:
1. Daniela Muñoz will be first player, and will probably give a great fight but won't beat Wozniak, Brandi or Alves.
2. Melissa Torres??? She is playing exhibitions against Novotna instead of playing real tournaments...
3. Erika Clarke...
4. Lorena Villalobos, 0 experience on Fed Cup.
And the four of them with the exception of Villalobos have much better results usually on hardcourts. Only chance is that something like 2 years ago happens, of Brandi getting injured and suddenly Daniela beating Vilmarie, but seems tough
And I agree Brazil is a tough team, and anyways Canada always have trouble with them.
Semifinalists, Canada, Puerto Rico, Brazil and someone.
Go Mex, stay there until Valeria Pulido becomes good.
