Re: GB draws Netherlands

the official 4 nominations (with their rankings) for each team are

GB:

murray 11, 89
henman 48, 274
rusedski 283, 1389
murray 1507, 43

Netherlands:

haase 141, 170
sluiter 140, 815
wassen no singles, 42
sijsling 293, 286

there is a bit of discrepency between the davis cup and atp sites. according to the davis cup site jamie murray is 1.65m tall and weighs 47kg and on the atp site he is 1.90m tall and weighs 84kg. i think the davis cup site is correct, but i may be wrong

He was also badly injured. It kept him out for 2 months on and off afterwards, and was playing his "bogeyman" Noam Okun, who is to Boggo what Tursunov is to Henman. Just matches up against his game really well and therefore is difficult for him to beat.

You're welcome to your opinion but I think you've formed it pretty quickly after a couple of ties, one of which he was badly injured in.

Having said that, he shouldn't be in the team for now, because he needs confidence as you say, he defo is mentally weak. If he can kick on to top 100 he might start to believe in himself more.

Re: GB draws Netherlands

order of play:

R1 - A.MURRAY (GBR) v R.SLUITER (NED)
R2 - T.HENMAN (GBR) v R.HAASE (NED)
R3 - J.MURRAY / G.RUSEDSKI (GBR) v I.SIJSLING / R.WASSEN (NED)
R4 - A.MURRAY (GBR) v R.HAASE (NED)
R5 - T.HENMAN (GBR) v R.SLUITER (NED)

so, greg for doubles, an instant loss, but he only has to lumber his fat body around half the court. hopefully sluiter can beat murray

Re: GB draws Netherlands

All the singles matches should be no contests... 4-0 to GB. The doubles could be close though, and although Greg is far from his best..there's a lot loss movement required in a doubles match, so we stand a good chance.

Fingers crossed 5-0

And you seriously believe that this will happen?

Haase is ranked 141, and Sluiter 140. Obviously there is always an oppertunity for an upset in Davis Cup, but it would have to be a major one if either of these two were to win either of their singles contests.

Stop being so god damn pescimistic

Chances are if we go 3-0 or 3-1 up the final singles rubber(s) won't be populated by Tim or Andy. And in that case we'll probably lose them.

Re: GB draws Netherlands

Good to see GB go 2-0 up. I expect Holland with play someone else with Wassen for the doubles, seeing as they require a win to stay in. Well played, boys
