  • Tie Summary

    This will be the first time that these two countries meet in Davis Cup.

    Russia is facing the playoff after being defeated 3-2 by Sweden in the World Group first round in Boras. The tie ended as a contest on Saturday, after singles wins for Robin Soderling over Igor Andreev and Joachim Johansson over Teymuraz Gaibashvili and a doubles victory for Simon Aspelin/Robert Lindstedt over Igor Kunitsyn/Dimitry Turnusov.

    Brazil accessed the World Group thanks to a comprehensive 5-0 victory over Uruguay in Montevideo. The Brazilians, led by Thomaz Bellucci, won all the matches without even dropping a single set.

    This is the sixth consecutive year that Brazil reaches the World Group playoffs.
