Question Spanish Davis Cup dilemna

Now who do they pick

#1 Moya injured out of form
#2 Robredo ........ YES but NOT against Duckboy, probably not even against DuckGirl (is there one ??)
#3 Girly Boy..... not on clay u dont
#4 Ferrero (only Poo has less confidence than him right now and thats not saying much) but it is clay
#5 Verdasco ..... not played DC
#6 Nadal (just hope he gets ahead of Ferrero on ranks by time of DC and everything will be fine)

I guess they are in a Sticky situation

plan was working so well with Ferrero having to play on day 1 as the #2, therefore he plays Duckboy and sends him quacking.
and anyone else would win the other tie, even one of the Spanish DC captains would probably win.

2-0 on day 1 would have been "Hasta La Vista Baby"

now its

Re: Spanish Davis Cup dilemna

Corretja, Costa, and the other oldies might still pull it off

Re: Spanish Davis Cup dilemna

Even on clay in one-off DC matches Roddick is going to be hard to beat.

Re: Spanish Davis Cup dilemna

but on the positive side
the clay isnt gonna be anything like Paris, nor are the balls

they gonna make the Courts as SLOW as possible
balls as BIG as possible
and WATER the courts as MUCH as possible

eh....... and they do have leaking roofs in Spain as well

Re: Spanish Davis Cup dilemna

yeah, Spain should be careful. I think the USA in Davis Cup on clay isn't that bad how many people like to think.

Lots of people will bit themselves in their tails if USA wins the Davis Cup I like Spain and especially Moya, but I wouldn't mind seeing a big upset in this one

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Spanish Davis Cup dilemna

im actually seriously doubting if spain r gonna win this. but then again, dc brings out the best in jc. he's gotta b a cert. despite the whole losing thin.

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

Re: Spanish Davis Cup dilemna

Why are people giving the USA more credit than they gave Spain last year? I find that extremely irritating.

Anyways,

Unless Rafa does something wicked in the next two weeks, that is going to happen. Ferrero will end the year in the top 40, Rafa probably won't.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Spanish Davis Cup dilemna

How funny that Robredo and Nadal are the only "for sures" at the moment.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I think that most people recognized that if Spain sent out a crippled team and the US played above themselves, that yes, the upset could happen. There are a select few who think that Fernando Vicente could pull this one off playing all 5 matches by himself, but those are a select few indeed.

And again... I find it very annoying that people demand respect for the US team but didnt' give Spain any last year. It's the exact same situation.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Costa maybe... but he won't play unless they promise him a singles spot. I'm not convinced that Corretja would beat my mother these days

I lack direction.

Re: Spanish Davis Cup dilemna

I'd stil play Carlos on day 1
even with one arm and one leg, he's still better on clay than anything the US has to offer.

Still dont get why his BH is as pathetic as it is considering he is lefthanded as well, so that makes it even more confusing

Player #2 on day 1 is gonna be the big match
Ferrero/Nadal vs Duckboy.

win that and its goodnight.

Re: Spanish Davis Cup dilemna

looooool at this topic!!!

Moya might be healthy in time! It's still about 5 weeks away! And Fernando Verdasco has been playing pretty well lately, maybe he deserves a singles spot? (if moya and ferrero can't play that is, lol)

Rafa Nadal Marat Safin Fer Verdasco Kimi Raikkonen
