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

Wow just read F.Lopez' bitching about the captain's decision to play Almagro and it's really pathetic and shows some serious lack of respect. No way in hell he's beating Berdych or having a 'better shot' nowadays, he's well past his best level, which is nothing amazing or close to it btw, and has done absolutely nothing during the year to deserve the call. What a clown, their H2H doesn't mean anything at this stage, Tomas would most likely embarass him at this point in time and considering the circumstances.

Vamos Nico. 10 times the tennis player F.Lopez was, is, or will ever be.

LaLo is a moron. Don't care if his game can be good to watch sometimes- he's a vain pin-up more arsed about looking in the mirror, sorting out his dandruff problem and hanging out with his bf Nadal than winning tennis matches.

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

I think it'll be 1-1 after tomorrow, and the next two days have tight matches. Steps/Berd have a good record from DC doubles matches, but Granny/Lopez are currently playing well. In the 4th rubber, I think Berdych is the favourite against Ferrer. Berdych should be able to beat Ferrer even on medium-paced indoor court, and I've understood the court would be fastish. But Ferrer has played so well this year, that also he can win. So this can well go to the 5th set. Fast court would favour Steps but I don't know if it's enough to help him beat Almagro. But home crowd can be a huge advantage for Czechs.

Still, I have a bad feeling that Berdy will win his both singles rubbers but Spain the other rubbers. But I hope Czechs will win and complete the Davis Cup & Fed Cup double. On the other hand, it's be nice if the Spaniards could win DC even without Rafa, especially with Ferrer as the "lead player". I'm afraid of what kind of a reaction Spain's players would get from Spanish media if they lost.

Well done Czechs. Davis Cup Final, Spain protest: ´Surface too fast´

And I paid attention to this sentence.

Quote:
David Ferrer, who won two tournaments on fast indoor courts this year, also spoke of the surface: "It’s the fasteest court of the season, but we go and play it anyway. The Czechs will take advantage of it. I remember the final against Argentina in 2008 at Mar de la Plata, with an entire building against us, but at that time the court was more playable for us”.
Yep, Bercy and Valencia were so lightning-fast.

Whiny bitches. DC gives nations hampered by homogenised tour courts a chance to redress the balance.

Last time they complained though when they played USA, the court wasn't even fast, it was slow-ass as usual

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

a coin toss.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

you will see tomorrow : it will be fast but nothing extraordinary, nothing like in the past of Davis cup.

I'm fed-up with that because there's no limit to slowness on the other side

Obviously the added sand slows down USO, so you really can't compare it to USO. But in the Fed Cup final the court really didn't look that fast, watch from youtube. But tomorrow will show how fast it's for men.

I doubt the court is lightening fast anyway, like the old Minsk ice rink was.

actually I read that the USO is ranked at 5 in the ITF category, that is faster than this one (ranked at 4). Maybe adding sand can make the US Open surface slower than its classification, I don't know.

Anyway, as rocketassist said, Spaniards also complained a lot about the court in the USA which was only middle-fast, then I don't believe their whinings at all on that. But I just observe that they have managed to avoid really fast courts since they lost in France in 2010 (and I don't even speak of really fast courts as there were in the past in Davis cup ). Then so far I say "well done" to them. As for this match we will see tomorrow.

The Czechs have a WMD they can use if they need to.

Hopefully the Czech Republic because I fear for Mark Lender's health if they lose.
