  • Tie Summary

    Russia and South Africa are meeting for the third time and there is arguably more at stake in this encounter than either of the previous two World Group match-ups.

    Both teams are fighting for their survival in Zone Group I, with the loser of this tie guaranteed to play in Europe/Africa Zone Group II in 2014.

    In the two previous ties between Russia and South Africa, the home side has won so the Eastern Europeans will hope that trend continues when the sides face off in Moscow.
