Madlad & BWEH vs The Fog & Bear
I'm picking the Russians and hoping for better matches on the last day
Medvedev would certainly take down Fognini without a sweat, because the Italian wouldn't like to play too many balls coming back with no pace from med lad, Fabio would turn into a non fabulous error machine.
On the other hand though, I'm not sure whether Rublev can take down @tennis_pro, primarily due to his weak return

You have your matchups backwards; it will be Medfly vs Berry and Rubles vs Foggy.

Oh F**k:oops:
My bad...
In that case, team russia has a pretty high probability of getting 2 losses
Medfly leads Berry h2h by 1-0 in a close 3-set IW’18 win before they both made big improvements. Gauging from Berry’s level this week, the match should be a cracker...too close for me to call with any confidence.

Foggy leads Rubles 5-1 h2h but no matches since Beijing’19, a straight set win for Foggy. Russian Money is much improved since then and looks zoned in this week. This match also could go either way.

Let’s say a 1-1 result is quite possible. That leaves doubles as the tiebreaker. I’m leaning towards Italy for that one. When they needed a win vs Austria to seal the tie, BerryFog thrashed ThiemNovak. They also have a very experienced DC team of FoggyBolelli if they need that due to Berry fatigue.

Italy FTW 2-1
