Nadal to play Davis Cup First Round

http://www.atpworldtour.com/News/Ten...-Cup-Fold.aspx

I'm not sure it's a good idea to overload the schedule.I know it will be a typical bitch-whipping but still it looks like an unneeded stop on his road through the whole season.

Re: Nadal to play Davis Cup First Round

Doesn't he have to play Davis Cup to be eligible for the Olympics?

That's why every top players will play at least one tie this year.

Re: Nadal to play Davis Cup First Round

Good news.
But I wanted to see Granollers in doubles.

Never ever give up

I didn't know that. In this case it seems to be the best possible date to get over this.

Re: Nadal to play Davis Cup First Round

It's a shame that Christofixer Rochus has retired.

Bitch-whipping would have been a disservice to the kind of beatdown he would have gotten from Nadull.

Juan Martin Del Potro

David Ferrer - Tommy Haas - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Andy Roddick - Juan Carlos Ferrero - Mardy Fish

Re: Nadal to play Davis Cup First Round

The match will be less intensive than a training session. Belgian men are mugs. Kim Clijsters would have given him a better work out. He badly needs time on court anyway.

Wrong forum.

There's a Nadull forum. Go there and don't come back, please.

Re: Nadal to play Davis Cup First Round

Nadal forum, or you could've also included the rest of the team...

No idea why he's playing here, guess he wants to make it up to his teammates for abandoning them to go to South Africa. Should've given Ferrer a rest as well and let Almagro and Robredo do singles and Granollers and either Robredo or Marc Lopez play doubles.

Clownish from Verdasco to play here as well, considering how overloaded his schedule already is, but I guess he wants to redeem himself from the embarrassment in France.

precisely.

according to Olympic rules, a player must make himself available for Davis Cup play twice during a four year Olympic cycle to be eligible to play in the Olympics. for the 2012 summer Olympics, that cycle is 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. one of those availabilities must take place the year before or the year of the Olympics (2011 or 2012).

But does this rule include the dead rubber.For example Nadal might not play at all in the live matches and only if the tie is decided he might play the dead rubber.Or he can skip singles and only play doubles.

Re: Nadal to play Davis Cup First Round

I think it's two ties, not two matches. Furthermore, national olympic committees can add their own criteria
