Davis Cup rankings?

Judio does an excellent job with the ATP rankings, but I was wondering if anyone is able to calculate the projected DC rankings before they come out early next week?

Would be cool to see how the World Group seedings might work out...

Re: Davis Cup rankings?

The Brits won't be seeded Jez.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

I already knew that.

I'm more interested in who we can avoid.

Re: Davis Cup rankings?

I think Russia and USA will be the top seeds. Maybe Argentina will fall out of the top 4.

There an only be One Nadal

I'm pretty sure we will be seeded 3rd, behind Russia and USA. At the very least not out of the top 4.

Our best home would be against Belgium, which would be a home tie.

Alternate home/away tie between countries. If the 2 countries never played before, draw lot.

Re: Davis Cup rankings?

Serbia and Czech Republic will be very dangerous floaters as long as they're able to get home ties.
