I say Switzerland vs Great Britain at Wimbledon - Roger Federer against Andy Murray in his home court on grass.

Even better. Djokovic destroying Soderling in straight sets to show that he's not top 8 material.

But then again, defeating the "Davis cup GOAT" in that manner would probably top this since Dave's heart would shatter. Unfortunately. Since this is what he cherishes the most.

No one likes to see someone being humiliated in front of their own crowd.

I say Serbia-Spain, by far the two strongest nations. Let them battle it out on clay, and we'll have a 3-2 or 2-3 for sure.

RAFAEL NADAL

1 AO - 9 RG - 2 W - 2 USO

Nadal vs. Djokovic in Davis Cup final on clay, especially with the match-up issue now firmly in Djokovic's favour.

He straight setted Rafa in Rome and Madrid this year (but both matches were best of 3 sets), I'm curious to see how a best of 5 set match would unfold between the two, should still be a good match anyways.

Also would like to watch Federer vs. Djokovic on clay or hard.

NOLE - RAFA - ROGER - DELPO - MUZZA - TSONGA

Also supporting: Rusty, Pics, Nalby, Nando, Baggy, Kei, Isner, Blake, Kolya, Berdych, Richie, Soderling, Gil

Ana - Wozzy - Vika - Kimmy - Makiri

AGASSI,RAFTER,SAFIN

Australia Vs Great Britain with Gooch playing Boggo in the 5th and deciding rubber on grass.
