Well, after some disappointments in USO (Vasek choking in singles, Daniel messing up doubles with his serve - him & Vasek had a good a chance as any for going all the way, Milos losing the way he did), for Canadian content we now turn to DC.
From Twitter: The Canadian team to take on Serbia in the #DavisCup
World Group semifinal is Milos Raonic, Vasek Pospisil, Frank Dancevic and Daniel Nestor - and yes, that was obvious. Now for lineup:
Day #1: Milos vs. Tipsy; Frank vs Djoker
Day #2: Nestor / Vasek
Day #3: Milos vs Djoker; Vasek vs. Tipsy
Rationale: Odds are miniscule that Djoker doesn't get both his matches ... so we need to win all 3 other rubbers. Both Milos vs. Tipsy & Vasek/Daniel dubs are obviously our best shots there so it will (hopefully) come down to last rubber. I'm going with Vasek in #5 (hoping that with Marty coaching in between change-overs & Canadian team giving him huge moral support will help him with the nerves) .. and also insisting that he not play a no-win situation against Djoker on day#1 and wear himself out. Thoughts?
