How do you all think Austria will do? I am hopeful. France is playing withoout its top players, but the rest are very good. Jurgen will play Chardy in the first match which was a surprise to me. Since Jurgen has a vey poor record against Julian Benneteau I though France would use him.
Oliver Marach is replacing Julian Knowle on the team and will play doubles with Jurgen. I know OLiver is an exccellent doubles player but I do not believe they have played together before. I wish Jurgen and Oliver the best in the doubles.
Stefan Koubek is coming back to play for Austria and is the second singles player. Do you feel the Captain made a good choice?
I think Austria is donoe. Jurgen had to win the first match against Chardy.
Melzer L Chardy 5-7, 4-6, 5-7
Stefan's loss was even worse in the score. He did not stand a chance.
I have my fingers crossed for the doubles. Jurgen and Oliver have to win.
