again advantage France
Amelie plays 1st match =BIG advantage for Mary

What? Advantage?

I think France will clinch a 4-0 lead no matter who play first. We'll see.

Advantage is Amelie plays 1st on both days so will win for sure
gives Mary no pressure.

As was the case in the France-Russia tie, Mary (since she won the clinching match, it's probably "Marie" now) Pierce is the key. If she wins one of her singles matches, it's over. If Shaughnessy and Raymond both beat her, because I don't see either of them beating Mauresmo, then the the Cup is coming back to the States. The Doubles Dream Team WILL NOT LOSE. ;)

I think France will win 4-1

only Navratilova/Raymond have chances for winning from the US team

It's not looking very good for USA, sp. with that order of play, if Mary had played first both days it would had put more pressure on her... seeing how Meghann is playing, it'll take something special for the USA to win this. But anything can happen! :D

Go Lisa and allez Mary! ;) :D
