Might as well like Peliwo have a go, assuming Pospisil is too injured to get into playing rhythym by then.
Haven't you heard that Nadal, Ferrer and maybe Almagro won't be playing the tie, so our chances of winning it have gone up, I expect Vasek to be alright by then, he should do well.

Re: Jesse Levine

No, I hadn't heard about Ferrer not playing. Gonna be tough but we will have a somewhat okay chance.

Re: Jesse Levine

Frank is a viable number 2, likely wont win but even if Vasek isn't ready te not that big of a drop off, Bettye than just giving Filip some experiance.

The thing that I don't like is the doubles, if Vasek isn't good to go then are we going to play Milos? Frank isn't that good of a doubles player and the doubles will be vital as IMO it's fairly close. If Vasek isn't good to go then I'd think about bringing Adil, have him and Daniel play, not sure if they've played before but Adil is fairly solid, better than tiring Milos out or running Frank out there.

Based on results the last few years, Vasek is the number 2. Frank never pulled off a weekend like Vasek did in Israel, and look at his choke in Mexico a couple years back. However, the problem is that all of our potential number two's are so far off world class level we'll have to wait unfortunately for Peliwo to realize his potential in order to match the big guns.

Frank is good at doubles, he just rarely plays doubles. I would like to see Frank/Nestor

Nestor - Chvojka - Pospisil - Raonic - Peliwo

I know, just saying if Vasek isn't ready.

Frank can win too, he beat Nalbandian, Delpo(granted before he was that good), he took a set off Rafa, beat Roddick(retirement but wasn't Frank up a set?), Kohlschreiber, he hasn't done it in Davis cup, and he doesn't do it often, but once every blue moon he can pull a nice upset

Re: Jesse Levine

Levine draws King-Turner, almost certainly he will win his 1st MD match of the year.

Re: Jesse Levine

Nice 1st MD win of the season, now onto Baker who Levine hasn't lost to in 3 meetings.

Re: Jesse Levine

Beats Baker, now plays Querrey, will probably lose here, but it's been a very good week for him, time to go to Melbourne and get ready.

Re: Jesse Levine

It's not time to go to melbourne to get ready for the AO. it's time to concentrate on a winning strategy against Querrey.

Sure it'll be tough to win but you can't have a losing mentality before you go in, you will lose 99% of the time. You don't turn your focus on the next tournament until you shake hands at the net after a loss. He could beat Qerrey and he could win this tournament, sure it's a long shot don't please don't tell Levine that
