Ok, tennis canada website fixed the doubles match up sched as well .. indeed will be Lopez ...
re: Ramos pick over GGL, I do think GGL is much better HC player than Ramos (GGL lifetime winning pct: .429 HC, .474 clay; Ramos lifetime winning pct: .306 HC; .527 clay ... pretty significant difference). But points on GGL recent form & fact that Ramos is lefty makes sense to me.
re: our chances, Frankly (pun intended), I think our chances of Frank taking one of the 2 singles is better than our doubles chances. Nestor hasn't had a banner 6 months, it is unclear how good Vasek can be right now coming back from mono, and we are playing one very hot doubles team.
Frank taking a DC match against two top 60 players is really not in my opinion a reality. we have to win the doubles.
