FC website hasn't stated which teams are in which events.

Venezuela easily the strongest there, with Gamiz who is the only player above 15k level here.

Peru's team is full of good/decent juniors. Hopefully they can challenge..

I don't see the big deal? :shrug:
In South America there are nations which are much better on claycourts than hardcourts. Determining their fate (clay or hard) by randomly assigning you in a group or another does not seem very logical tbh. The goal is the same for every team: getting into the Americas Zone Group I. Let's make play every team under the same conditions, everybody on clay or hard.
