No surprise on Czech team, Navratil named Stepanek, Berdych, Hajek and Dlouhy.

2-man team for the czechs, but it should be enough. Do not know enough about Stepanek vs Rochus/Darcis, but i think he will at least will win one of his ties.

Allways Good luck to:

Joachim Johansson * Andreas Vinciguerra* Jonas Björkman* ToJo* Robin Söderling* Oliver Rochus* Christope Rochus* Jarkko Nieminen* Fernando Gonzalez* Feliciano Lopez*Igor Andreev*Catalin Gard*Kristof Vliegen*Kristian Pless*Kenneth Carlsen*Juan Ignacio Chela*Steve Darcis*Kevin Anderson*Henri Kontinen*Henri Laaksonen*Daniel Berta*Rik de Voest*Niels Desein*Fernando Verdasco*Arthur de Greef*'David Goffin*Yannik Reuter*Erling Tveit*Devin Britton*Micke Kontinen*Christian Lindell*Erling Tveit*Robbye Poole*Henri Laaksonen*

And Dick Norman suddenly doesn't exist anymore, Mr Belgian Captain?

Instead of Darcis Belgium should have gone for Norman.

it's on clay and Darcis is the only Belgian player who has played on clay in the last weeks.

He's also the youngest and was Belgian number 1 player one year ago, nearly top-50.

Then it's not surprising at all

They should have pick Malisse and O. Rochus for singles and Oli and Norman, the best double specialist in Belgium and good on clay. Darcis could be a substitute in singles and(or) in doubles

Too have a doubles specialist in your team, is a must I think!

it's surely nice, but very often singles players, although not used to playing doubles, perform very well when they do. And on clay the difference is even lower between doubles specialists and the others.
