NAPLES, ITALY: Italian captain Corrado Barazzutti is full of optimism ahead of his team's Davis Cup World Group play-off tie against Chile. With the support of the home crowd from the beautiful city of Naples and Fabio Fognini returning to the team he is sure that Italy will retain their place in the World Group. The only thing that could stand in their way is the weather.

Chilean captain Belus Prajoux realises what an uphill struggle his team has this weekend particularly as Italy overcame Chile at home in Santiago in the play-offs in 2011. He feels that Paul Capdeville's rubber against Fognini on the opening day could play a key part in the outcome of the weekend.
