    The BEAST took down Robredo in four sets, and then Voltchkov did his part against Ferrer.

    Belarus up 2-0, and they're probably favorites in the doubles; and Mirnyi should be the favorite against Ferrer should it get to that... Spain in a deep hole, Belarus looking to be in control.

    On the verge of losing in the 1st round for the 2nd year in a row. They have trouble playing indoors, away ties.

    this is probably the fastes court worldwide - it clearly favors Belarus
    not unexpected their 2:0 lead and Voltchkov is a much stronger when he plays a DC-tie

    Not necessarily the fastest court worldwide - the court that Croatia puts down for their home ties could be equally fast ;)

    But yes, I definitely agree, Belarus makes great use of their home-surface advantage. And Voltchkov does seem to bring his best in Davis Cup.
