WWW:DC R1 Suisse vs. USA

It is Fish, Isner, Mike Bryan, Harrison vs. Federer, Wawrinka, Chiudinelli and Lammer on fast clay in Switzerland.

Does anyone know if Harrison, Chiudinelli, and Lammer will play in the 3rd doubles rubber? (Don't know the last two swiss guys)

Who will win?

Considering that USA don't have Roddick this year, I think Suisse wins in 4-1.

Edit:
R1 WAWRINKA vFISH

R2 FEDERER vISNER

R3 FEDERER WAWRINKA v BRYAN HARRISON

R4 FEDERER vFISH

R5 WAWRINKA vISNER

Who thinks Courier is not thinking straight putting Harrison in the doubles instead of Mardy Fish???

Go USA!
Though in my opinion Suisse will win every match. Fish is an utter mug even on his best surface hc, not to mention clay.

Re: WWW:DC R1 Suisse vs. USA

interesting that Courier chose Harrison to play the dbls. Its a surprise move that may pay off actually. Fedrinka must have been practicing anticipating Fish-Bryan pair. This move also means that Courier realises that USA should try and beat Federer in the singles and not just target Wawrinka. Too many teams do that against the Swiss. While that may be the obvious strategy it hasnt worked out too well off late. It may be the right thing to take it to the big name in the other team - the guy expected to win his matches. So the one day rest for Fish before playing Federer
Nonetheless, I still expect the Swiss to win this. 3-2 for the hosts is worst scenario I can think of in this tie.

Re: WWW:DC R1 Suisse vs. USA

Depends all on Wawrinka's form, Roger can't win it alone.

Fed could have skipped this one. SUI would still have won.

nope. Swiss without Federer went down 0-5 to Kazakh FGS

I hope the Swiss wrap it up in the first two days, I would like Roger to play Rotterdam, and play well. Its indoors afterall

The Kazakh players were way more impressive than the Fish of these days

seldom does the composition of the double given on thursday really mean anything about what it will be on saturday.

Very often the captains do as Courier did : for the draw nominate two players for singles and the two other ones for doubles but on saturday they can decide whichever composition they want.

I know Harrison has a good serve-and-volley but I believe more in Fish or Isner playing the double, except maybe if they play a long match on friday : Isner already played with one of the Bryan brothers (don't remember which one ) in Serbia in 2010 and they won.

By the way, in Serbia that year, Isner also took Djokovic to 5 very tight sets on indoor clay (and he had already played two matches before, one in 4 and one in 5 sets). He played very well that day.

Fed says that the tie will be tight, and I understand that he's careful.

useless old guy

Re: WWW:DC R1 Suisse vs. USA

Biggest upset in DC history if USA wins?

EDIT:

Australia def Brazil was a pretty big upset in 2001
