China has 5 Top 100 players and they're fielding 1 of them. That should make Japan's task a lot easier, although it's by no means a forgone conclusion. I'll be amazed if the Philippines aren't relegated.

The home team should get through their group but Yulia might be tired and Slava can lose to anybody on a bad day.

Depends a bit on which BFCD turns up, but Japan's doubles should be stronger anyway.
