Re: Americas Zone Group I 1st round: Ecuador at Canada (March 6-8, 2009)

Fred plays these TBs really poorly, he's actually been not bad for the first 12 games of the last two sets.

Is it better for Fred to lose in 3 and be ready to beat Giovanni or to play 5 sets and then be tired?

To lose in three is better I think, the second and third sets were pretty even, and if he can play this well against Giovanni he will have a solid chance. To waste his energy chasing an unlikely victory, especially with the doubles point so important, wouldn't seem to me to be very smart.

I hope that 5th rubber is Milos v. Campozano, though

Especially since Fred's play in big moments hasn't been very good in this match

Giovanni has the better game than Nicolas in these conditions. Fred won't beat him. Frank will even have a tough match against Giovanni.

i think it all comes down to dancevic vs n lappenti. danc should beat the other lappenti today, canada should win the doubles, and other lappenti will probably beat niemeyer.

You really think Giovanni is better than Nicolas, Jordan?

Hmm, I did not think Giovanni was that good, Frank beat him pretty easily late last year, and it wasn't like Frank was in very good form then. Plus seeing him at Dallas this year didn't leave much of an impression on me, at least. If your assessment is right, this will be a very tough tie

Is the webcast broken for me or has Frank not started playing yet?

I also see nothing, so at least it's not just you, they probably haven't started up again.

Update: Now it's working, Frank up 2*-1
