BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA: Sofia Arvidsson has played for her country for 13 years and she still finds is a great honour and has a lot of fun being part of a team. The Swedes arrived on Monday and have been practicing at Parque Roca trying to get use to the change of surface from hard to clay, and of course the hot weather.

Paula Ormaechea looks ahead to ‘the most challenging tie they have faced’ as the Argentines take on the much higher ranked Sweden.  The Argentine No. 1 is ranked just inside the top 200 and faces a battle this weekend against two much higher ranking opponents with Arvidsson at No. 38 and Johanna Larsson at No. 71. Ormaechea is due to open the tie for Argentina against Larsson on Friday.

New Swedish captain Lars-Anders Wahlgren talks about what a great honour it is being involved with this team and what a change it is in climate from Sweden where it is snowing to Argentina where it is very hot.

    Shorter and easier: just call him Max. He was a sports writer for La Nacion newspaper for 16 years before starting doing research for ESPN, consulting for the Argentine Tennis Association and writing for international publications. Max has travelled the American continent to cover football, until tennis – a life-time passion – had him wandering though the pathways of Grand Slams and Davis Cup ties. Most exciting thing? Packing for the next trip.
