Sri Lanka defeats Croatia, 4-1!!

This was basically over on the first day, as Sava Cirakovic was by far the biggest threat. A good debut for Mooljee with a couple of straight-sets wins, and a nice comeback by Girsh in the epic finale, even with the matter already decide. All three of the other matchups were 3-2; France over the USA, Argentina over the Czech Republic, and Sweden over Italy. Can't remember the last time the US and Czechs were both out by this point.

Both semifinals will be on grass, which is quite unusual. We get the French, and it's a pretty favorable surface for them. Still, they aren't what they were a couple of years ago, and I don't expect any major problems. Should be another comfortable win.
