2010 World Group draw

2010 World Group Draw

The draw for the 2010 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas has been made in Geneva with some intriguing World Group ties coming out of the hat.

Spain, the 2008 champion and top seed, has been drawn at home against Switzerland in a mouth watering fixture that could see the world’s top two players, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, going head-to-head.

Spain will be attempting to become the first nation since Sweden in 1998 to successfully retain the Davis Cup when it faces Czech Republic in the Final in December. Switzerland secured its place in the World Group with victory over Italy in the Play-offs.

France, unseeded in the draw after coming through the Play-offs, faces Germany while India travels to Russia and Sweden hosts Argentina.

In the bottom half of the draw, USA faces an away tie against Serbia with a potential match-up between Novak Djokovic and Andy Roddick.

Following Nicolas Lapentti’s heroics in the Play-offs, Ecuador travels to Croatia for its first tie in the World Group since 2001.

Czech Republic, who will play Spain in this year’s Final, faces an awkward trip to Belgium for the right to meet Israel or Chile in the quarterfinals.

The full draw for the 2010 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group is as follows:

SERBIA (c)(*) v USA (s)
CHILE (c) v ISRAEL (s)

First Round ties to be played on 5-7 March 2010.

(s) = seeded nation
(c) = choice of ground
(*) = choice of ground decided by lot

Full draw - 2010 World Group

Choice of Ground - 2010 World Group

Re: 2010 World Group Draw

Marcelo Rios: Most talented player of all times..

Fernando Gonzalez: Most hard hitting player of all times

Nicolas Massu: The only player of all time to show that he only needs guts (and zero tennis) to reach the top 10

Chile: The country with more "garra" of all times

World Group first round venues announced for 2010

The venues for the 2010 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group first round have been announced. The ties will be played on 5-7 March.

Venue: TBC
City: TBC
Surface: TBC
Spain leads Switzerland 4-1 in the head-to-head series with the most recent victory coming in 2007. Albert Costa’s team is also the reigning champion having won its fourth title in 2009, stretching its unbeaten clay court record to 20 ties. This fixture could see the first meeting between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in Davis Cup play.

Venue: Palais des Sports
City: Toulon
Surface: Indoor hard
France and Germany first played each other in 1913, a tie which the Germans won. France has since had the upper hand and has compiled a win-loss record of 5-2. In total, the two nations have lifted the trophy 12 times between them – the French team accounting for nine of the victories.

Venue: Small Sports Arena "Luzhniki"
City: Luzhniki
Surface: Indoor hard
Home advantage has proved crucial in previous meetings between these two nations. India leads 2-1 and is making its first World Group appearance since 1998. Russia, on the other hand, has been a fixture in the top division since it separated from playing under the banner of the Commonwealth of Independent States in 1992. During this time, it has also been crowned champion twice, in 2002 and 2006.

Venue: Kungliga Tennishallen
City: Stockholm
Surface: Indoor hard
These two nations traditionally prefer different surfaces – Sweden fast indoor and Argentina slow outdoor. In their previous four meetings, home advantage has proved the determining factor as they are currently tied at two-apiece. Sweden has a rich Davis Cup pedigree having won the title seven times. Argentina is yet to get off the mark but has finished runner-up on three occasions.

Venue: Gradska sportska dvorana Varazdin
City: Varazdin
Surface: Indoor TBC
Croatia and Ecuador will be facing each other for the first time. Croatia, the 2005 champion, will go into the tie as favourite. Ecuador, meanwhile, will be making its first appearance in the World Group since 2001. Nicolas Lapentti was his nation’s hero in the play-off win over Brazil in September.

Venue: Belgrade Arena
City: Belgrade
Surface: Indoor TBC
Serbia and USA have never previously met and both teams will be harbouring hopes of progressing to the quarterfinals. Novak Djokovic and Andy Roddick are their respective country’s top players and, if they both play, will face each other in the opening singles rubber on day three.

Venue: Enjoy Tennis Center
City: Coquimbo
Surface: Outdoor red clay
These two nations have defeated one other once each – Chile winning at home in 1960 and Israel claiming victory at home in 2007. Chile clinched its place in the World Group after triumphing over Austria in the play-offs. Israel, meanwhile, reached the semifinals for the first time in its history in 2009.

Venue: TBC
City: TBC
Surface: TBC
This is a repeat of a first round tie in 2008 when Czech Republic was the winner in Ostrava. The Czech team, which reached the Final in 2009, leads Belgium 7-3 in their head-to-head series. In 1980, Ivan Lendl and Tomas Smid led their nation - then Czechoslovakia - to its sole Davis Cup title. Belgium’s best performance came in 1904 when it finished runner-up.

Exclamation Lyon stages Davis Cup semifinal

The French Tennis Federation announced that the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group semifinal between France and Argentina will take place in Lyon on 17-19 September. The tie will be held at the Palais des Sports de Gerland on an indoor hard court, with a seating capacity of 6000.

This is the first time the arena has staged Davis Cup since the historic 1991 Final, when current captain Guy Forget and Henri Leconte teamed up for a 3-1 victory over a strong American side that included Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras. This was France’s first victory in the competition since 1932, but the team has gone on to further titles in 1996 and 2001.

Both France and Argentina have shown impressive form en route to the semifinals. France followed up a 4-1 first round home victory over Germany by stunning defending champions Spain 5-0 in the quarterfinals in Clermont-Ferrand. David Nalbandian has been Argentina’s hero in their 2010 campaign, twice winning the deciding rubber away from home in 3-2 victories over Sweden and Russia.

France has won all four previous meetings against Argentina, although the two nations have not met since 1982, when France scored a 3-2 World Group first round victory in Buenos Aires.

Re: Lyon stages Davis Cup semifinal

Some of this Argie substitutes don't even play anymore, that's at least 4 of them.

Monaco will be back in 2 weeks so he should stand a chance of making the team.
