Re: 2018 Americas Zone Group I

In addition to Puerto Rico, Venezuela also withdrew, saying it did not have the "necessary resources" to participate.

It seems that Venezuela will send a team probably get some money from another federation to send the players and a coach.

Format

Round-robin basis. One pool of three teams (Pool A) and one Pool of four teams (Pool B).

The winners of each pool will play-off against each other to determine which nation will advance to the World Group II play-offs in April 2018.

In the relegation play-offs, the teams that finish third in each pool will play-off against each other to determine which nation will be relegated to Americas Zone Group II in 2019. The nation finishing fourth in Pool B will be automatically relegated.

One promoted.
Two relegated.

Re: 2018 Americas Zone Group I

Paraguay should win group A

Argentina or Brazil should win group B

How is Guatemala so high ?
Guatemala will finish last in their group for sure

Colombia vs Venezuela should be the relegation play-off
