Believe it or not, but if they beat the winner of Cerretani/Fisher vs Parrott/Polasek, they will get into the top 8 team ranking.
I would be really suprised, if Philipp didn't get a Davis Cup nomination next Tuesday. He has beaten a lefty this week, who isn't worse than Melzer, so he showed that he wouldn't be hopeless in singles. In doubles he was in the "pole position" anyway, so it was up to the others to show something special, but that didn't happen. Picasso is now 7-4 on ATP level doubles this year, while Kas is 6-6. I would be pleased to see a Kas/Petzschner doubles, but Schüttler seems to be in a good position to get nominated. 2 out of Petzschner/Schüttler/Kas/Zverev should get nominated.
