I MADE THE FIRST Tennis World Cup draw EVER! VOTE NOW! tournament includes the best 2 men & women players only?

It'd be like each country has a team consisting on their top players ONLY 1 man and 1 woman (the best ranked players of the country in ATP and WTA) just playing singles, and in case of a tie, a mixed doubles match would be played, again with these 2 players per team. if you didnt get me, here's an example:... show more It'd be like each country has a team consisting on their top players ONLY 1 man and 1 woman (the best ranked players of the country in ATP and WTA) just playing singles, and in case of a tie, a mixed doubles match would be played, again with these 2 players per team. if you didnt get me, here's an example: Great Britain vs Belgium: Murray beats Rochus, and then Clijsters beats Baltacha. So, there'd be a mixed doubles match like this: Murray and Baltacha vs Clijsters and Rochus.

Here's how the thing is: you guys vote each week for the teams that get through each round. The teams with the most votes on each tie are going to be OFICCIALY in the next round. Voting for the bew round start every Saturday night, with voting ending on Wednesdays, along with a post of the results.

Oh, and just so you know, I'll randomly (according to players H2H) pick a surface for the tie. For example, if the players met like 2 times at hard court, then the tie will be on hard.

Here's the draw, each team is seeded according to their best ranked players:

(1) SERBIA (Djokovic and Jankovic)
PARAGUAY (Delgado and de Los Rios)
ITALIA (Starace and Schiavone)
(16) LATVIA (Gulbis and Sevastova)
(9) SWITZERLAND (Federer and Bacsinszky)
TAIPEI (Lu and Chan)

(8) GERMANY (Kohlschreiber and Petkovic)
(5) SPAIN (Nadal and Martinez Sanchez)
COLOMBIA (Giraldo and Duque Marino)
KAZAKHSTAN (Korolev and Shvedova)
(12) UKRANIA (Dolgopolov Jr. and A. Bondarenko)
(13) AUSTRIA (Melzer and Bammer)
