Japan v Colombia Live
Both the teams, Japan and Columbia, having won their zonal region I, will face off in the playoff of the 2013 Davis Cup. Japan would be feeling pretty confident, as they host Columbia in a Hard Indoor environment.
Japan have named a decent squad for the playoff, and they will be led by Minoru Ueda. Players include Kei Nishikori, Go Soeda, Yuichi Sugita and Tatsuma Ito. Only Nishikori features in the top 15 of ATP rankings and much will depend on the outcome of his matches.
Japan will relish the opportunity of making into the World Group of 2014, and they would hope to take full advantage of playing at home.
Columbia have never featured in the World Group, and this playoff is a great opportunity for them to make it to the highest stage. However, they will have to play excellent tennis in order to overcome the experienced Japan, in their home conditions.
Captained by Mauricio Hadad, Columbia have named Santiago Giraldo, Alejandro Falla, Juan-Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah, for their matchup this Friday. They have a pretty inexperienced team, and so they will bank on the talent and skill of their players
