SAO JOSE DO RIO PRETO, BRAZIL: Thomaz Bellucci believes this weekend's play-off tie against Russia is Brazil's best chance of returning to the World Group.
The Brazilian No. 1 has had good clay court results this year and is confident his team can avenge the defeat they suffered at the hands of the Russians at this stage of the competition last year.
Russia's Alex Bogomolov talks about the unity within the Russian team and how newcomer Stanislas Vovk has brought a fresh energy to the squad.
There is also much talk about the hot weather that is set to descend on Sao Jose do Rio Preto over the coming days and how that will affect the players.
