DC RUS-SRB: Djo/Zim d. You/Tur 63 76[6] 76[5]

Good match by our guys, and Nole appears to be in acceptable form for tomorrow. Now it remains to be seen what happens with Janko.

This match was painful. The Russians just completely forgot how to play doubles many times throughout the match. Downright stupid tactics at times. And they couldn't get out of their own way most of the time. They had so many chances and they all just went away as quickly as they came.

Lucky for Russia, the draw is in their favor. The Djoke will beat Davydenko, most likely. But if that happens Youzhny gets Troicki in the tie-deciding 5th rubber.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

Youzhny/Tursunov, as a team, never won a doubles match in Davis Cup, and Troicki won't necessarily play the 5th rubber - Janko could muster up the energy.

Even then it'd still be in Russia's favor.

I rarely enjoy doubles but i loved it this time, regardless of the result

I'm not really an optimist about the outcome of this tie...possible 3-2 score but we can still pray for a miracle

Youzhny or Tursunov will rip apart Troicki/Tipsarevic in the 5th rubber.

It'll all depend on Janko's ability to grit his teeth and die on the court.

(The pressure on Troicki would be too much, I agree.)

Yeah but they had some tough opponents...Bryans, Llodra/Clement, now Zimonjic...ain't the shame to lose from doubles players like that

Either way it was satisfying for me...i like Dima, i like Misha, like the other 2...would've been better if Marat stayed instead of kissing Tarpi goodbye (literally) and walking out but oh well...

Misha and Mitya don't like to play doubles together - Sobkin says they don't "feel" or understand each other. So, no surprise in this result. The Russians are still favoured to win the tie tomorrow.

Firstly D'Joke must beat Kolya in their first meeting

Even half-sick Nole has more aces up his sleeve/racquet than a fresh Troicki (no disregard here), and if Troicki could drive Kolya to the 5th, Nole must have at least an even chance (if not better).

I'd like Nole to beat Davydenko tomorrow (and I think he will), Misha vs. whoever though, is another story entirely.

So, no official informations who's gonna play tomorrow?
I hope Tipsarevic's gonna be fine tomorrow. He should, he got the virus before Nole did.

Viruses? Where are they? Both Novak & Janko were very healthy yesterday, day before..

I am so disapointed.
