Igor and his Magic Forehand will work wonders again

Marat will need to be there.

DC is the one thing that Marat seems to lift for these days.

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".

USA 3-2. Russia will win the meaningless 5th rubber.

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

I'd love to see it in Miami, but it wont be happening. There are no shortage of grass courts in Florida and California, Im sure they could have found one for the tie, but noooooo

Roddick, Blake, Bryans against Davydenko, Youzhny, Tursunov, Andreev. I'd say USA 3-2 as usual, with Roddick and Bryans' rubbers.

Exactly. Miami, LA, Houston would have all been great options even played on hard courts. The USTA just lack imagination they go with the same venues for Davis Cup all the time.

Re: Who will win Davis Cup Final. USA or Russia?

As of today I think the United States will win 3-2. But I need to find out the health of the players right before the final so I can make a final prediction then.

I don't think a Russian doubles team of Youzhny and Tursunov will beat the Bryan Brothers in the vital doubles point. But I think a team of Youznhy and Safin could if Safin is healthy. Safin's health is important to Russia for the final. Even if Marat only plays the doubles if Russia wins that point they would win the Tie and Davis Cup final by splitting the singles matches. It might be asking alot of Marat at this point of his career, but Russia needs him healthy and in good form for the finals.

Egalite!

Re: Who will win Davis Cup Final. USA or Russia?

The US is the favourite, Russia will need to have Safin in form, most probably playing with Safin, Tursunov, Youzhny.

The US needs to win the DC at this moment, next year they will face away ties against Argentina, Spain, Russia and its unlikely they will avoid all of the above.
