But yes, Berdych vs Ferrer will be the fourth rubber if it happens.
I have got a question: do the teams number ones always play the fourth rubber? If so, why?

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

Re: Who will win the 2012 Davis Cup Czech Republic vs. Spain? (Be

unfortunately, they can't both lose

but spain, i suppose

ferrer deserves the spotlight and praise

berdych boasting would be insufferable

his oxygen deprived brain would convince him he'd won something all by himself

Hope Spain can achieve a miracle, but give them little chance.

The crowd and court combination makes this nearly impossible.

Spain are very mcuh the underdogs.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Agree. Would be hilarious if he called Ferrer "overranked".

Czechs will obtain a comfortable victory. Berdych will easily win both rubbers, on a fast court, and Spain will be fortunate to win more than one of the other matches.

Order is

Stepanek vs. Ferrer
Berdych vs. Almagro

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Berdych v Ferrer will decide it. Cannot wait.

Think Ferrer will do it.

Re: Who will win the 2012 Davis Cup Czech Republic vs. Spain? (Berdych having some fu

As Granollers and Marc Lopez are in the team, Feliciano Lopez has no possibility to play anymore, unless he replaces an injured opponent at last minute tomorrow morning.

After that last minute tomorrow morning (it has to be made until two hours before tomorrow's first match, I think), it will be impossible to make any changes inside the 4 players of the team. There's no official 5th player in a Davis cup team contrary to what many people think.

And even for that last minute change, I think the injury of one of the players has to be checked by an official.

Then I think Navratil was wrong in what he said ... or more probably he just said that to upset Almagro, as Berdych did as well

useless old guy

I hope either Ferrer beats Stepanek or, ideally, Spain win the doubles rubber, so Berdych gets to play Ferrer in a live rubber and further expose his inflated ranking with a 3-set rout.

Willing to make our bet in this match?

If Berdych beats Ferrer I will get banned for life. If Ferrer beats Berydch you get banned for life.

The court is fast and Ferrer is overrated and has an inflated ranking. How could you possibly decline the bet?

Why so much hate for Mark Lenders? Wasn't it you who created 'should Mark Lenders leave MTF is Ferrer beats Tsonga' thread?

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

It seems that Feliciano Lopez complained about not being chosen, that the decision was impossible to understand in "technicians' eyes, and also said that Berdych much preferred playing Almagro than him and this surface was ideal for him

I will fully be with Nico tomorrow (and on sunday if necessary)

useless old guy
