Re: World Group 1R: Germany at Croatia (March 4-6, 2011)

I hate it when guys like Ljubicic and Youzhny retire from Davis Cup . It's so dumb to retire from it when you can still play well

Marcos Baghdatis Forever!

Through the good and the bad, always my #1, no matter what the rankings say

Marin Cilic (CRO) d. Florian Mayer (GER) 46 60 46 63 61
Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER) d. Ivan Dodig (CRO) 64 36 46 76(6) 64

This is the most interesting tie by far. Really looking forward to watch doubles match tomorrow. Really difficult to predict a winner on this tie.

[B]My hall of fame: Roger Federer-Rafael Nadal-Jo Wilfried Tsonga-David Ferrer-Juan Carlos Ferrero-Tommy Haas- Radek Stepanek-Lleyton Hewitt-David Nalbandian-Guillermo Cañas-Carlos Moya-Pete Sampras-Petr Korda- Kent Carlsson-Richard Krajicek-Karol Kucera-Tim Henman-Alex Corretja-Thomas Muster-Michael Stich-Pat Cash-Patrick Rafter-Darren Cahill-Ivan Lendl-Mats Wilander-Miloslav Mecir-Karel Novacek-Joakim Nystrom-Henrik Sundstrom-Hans Simonsson-Anders Jarryd-Jimmy Connors-Bjorn Borg-Guillermo Vilas.

In all 3 matches the winning player/team came back from 1 set to 2 down. I'm going there tomorrow

I still think Croatia is the favorite, but go Germany!

Another very interesting and closed match in this tie. I reckon this tie is going to be close till the 5th rubber.

Will Dodig play again after his two thrilling 5-setters ?

Can Karlovic play well enough is a question. Who is their next player? The Dr. has been struggling and didn't play well enough today to play him in a 5th rubber, especially against a player who would be a bad match-up for him in Mayer, or a player he would have serious difficulty breaking in Picasso. They pretty much have to go with Dodig.

Hopefully Croatia can pull out the win. They've always been one of my favorite Davis Cup teams

Great Hard worked victory for the German team. Great effort by the Croats though. Just wondering why Dodig didn`t play: was he injured?

Too tired, mentally and physically. The German commentators said he didn't even warm up in the morning. Look, he lost both of his matches, both were long 5 setters (in total ~9 hours of play in these two matches). Kohli was also a bit tired today so probably it wouldn't have made a big difference.

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4
