Davis Cup 2016: Day 2 Doubles Prediction

Ivan DODIG & Franko SKUGOR

VS

Leonardo MAYER & Guido PELLA

This match is likely to decide the winner.  I could see Croatia sweeping the Day 3 singles matches, but Argentina almost certainly needs this point.  I rarely predict doubles matches due to not knowing enough to say X is more likely than Y with any confidence.  It is possible each captain could substitute players into this match as well.  That makes a prediction quite difficult.

My prediction will be quite simple.  I think Croatia has a favorable crowd and a surface that was hand picked.  This likely gives Croatia a slight edge entering this match.  I predict Croatia to win the doubles point in 4 sets and also expect at least one captain to make a move away from the originally slated line-up.
