Davis Cup: USA vs Austria - WWW?

Time to kick off the flamewars, featuring prospective contributions from Ducktards, J-Block-tards, Bryans-tards (including haters of all 3, whether on an individual basis, or as a collective group ), people keen to continue calling Americans "clay clowns" (not unwarranted), and those who think that Melzer is a clown, Koubek has outstanding dress sense ( ), and that, generally, the Austrians usually piss themselves in Davis Cup competition (notably Melzer).

Sure to be an intriguing tie, so fire away!


*expected contribution from IvanLjubicic:* "Blake sucks."

But definitely overrated.

Re: Davis Cup: USA vs Austria - WWW?

Bryans will win one point.
Koubek will beat Blake.
Roddick will beat Eschauer/Melzer
Other 2 matches are 50/50.
It's gonna be interesting.

Damn, I didn't select "public" in the poll options. :retard:

Anyway, for what it's worth, I voted USA 3-2.

Re: Davis Cup: USA vs Austria - WWW?

An interesting tie for sure here, some thoughts regarding this one:

-The US in recent years is losing against powerhouses on clay but is winning against teams that are not powerhouses (Slovakia, Belgium, Chezh Republic without Stepanek).
-The Brian brothers cannot keep their form and streak forever. Obviously, this does not mean they will lose on this particular tie but Austria does have a competitive doubles team.
-Koubek showed some excellent form in the AO. If he can keep this level he should be the favourite in his matches but you never know with him.

Summing up, the US is still the favourite but Austria has definitely chances here.
