Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

I don`t see Stepanek winning any of his singles matches,Berdych can win both his matches(favorite over Almagro,Lopez and 50-50 against Ferrer) and in doubles the Czechs have a slight edge.
So for the Czechs to win,Berdych has to contribute to all 3 points.

Agreed, knowing Nadal he will be too much of a coward for that.

I think less of you as a person if you are a fan of Rafael Nadal.

Birdshit to bring in the lube for Rafito as usual.

Watch Nadull playing and claimng all the glory as he usually does. Only shows up in the finals to get all the credit.

Would be amazing to see the cool duo of Berdych/Stepanek raising the Davis Cup trophy. I hope Nadal doesn't play.

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

Agree that Berdych playing 2 singles and doubles can be tough, but between WTF-DC is enough time to rest so basically he will play just those 3 matches and have time to rest till AO.

Now i believe it really isn´t important if Nadal-Ferrer or Ferrer-Almagro or Ferrer-Lopez will be ESP singles. Stepanek i think will loose both of his singles matches, his 1st match he will play ESP No.1 either Rafa or David- no way he win this, than doubles and if he must play 5th tie he will be tired and Almagro, Lopez should be favorites vs him- not even talking if Ferrer will be ESP No.2 no chance.

So i think Berdych must win 3 points including doubles where CZE should be favorit. Even 5sets on fast indoor court should be ,,quick,, match to have energy to play 4th rubber vs Nadal/Ferrer - ESP No.1

I really think it doesn´t matter if Rafa will play or not, this tie is on Berdych racuqet and choice of right surface for him-i hope it will be fast HC or carpet- + indoor conditions favour guys with weapons and both Ferrer and Nadal would prefer to play outdoors with wind, hot temperature, sun and so on, Berdych indoors on fast surface must have very bad day to loose to either of them. His 1st serve will be even bigger weapon than normally, his agressive game will give him more winners and Forced errors from ESP player than normally, he can kill those 2nd serves at return, he can even go to the net.

Now i really think Nadal is overrated here, even if he will play - he is indoors half the player outdoors, + on faster surfaces he is clearly not such good, than his confidence won´t be good. If Nadal will play indoor season or Asia or just WTF - no way he will do good, he will be average at best- no confidence, not in form vs Berdych indoors fast surface - i really can´t see NAdal to be favorite here no matter H2H. Don´t forget he will play after weeks-even months without ATP tour level tennis - he can practice yes but it is not the same like playing top guys at tournaments.

Spain is just dominating men's tennis. It would be nice to see an another team winning, like Czech Republic, but I don't think they'll make it

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

I have a feeling CZE will win, mostly because of home court advantage, and especially if Nadal doesn't play.

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

Would like Rafa Rosol


Rafael Nadal Perera, the best there was, there best there is and the best there will ever be
14 Grand Slams while he was plagued with injuries is remarkable and he isn't done just yet
Mad respect for the most beautiful player I've ever seen, Roger Federer
People talking about Nole winning 4 in a row and Rafa/Roger not being able to. Peak Nadal and Federer would have won multiple CYGS against this field

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

works out well coz i was thinking if Delpo is struggling bad with his wrist again then the Argies were sitting ducks in a final v ESP, coz they'd have to play on HC and Monaco aint gonna do anything there v Spain, Nalbandian is finished as a top level player

so the Czechs winning was far better, Berdy on a fast indoor plus the fact he is something like 14-1 in doubles with Steppa, they should slap the Spanish everyway

congrats on your cup Czechoslovakia

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

3-1 Czechs as long as Berdych plays both singles ties.

No chance Nadal plays. The tie won't be on clay so Nadal won't show up.

Plus it would be stupid of him to rush back from injury for this tie. Davis Cup is largely irrelevant and he has won it multiple times already.

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

in case spain will play singles with Ferrer and Almagro then the fourth/fifth rubber would be Berdych-Ferrer as they are the highest ranked for their nations right? this scenario can be very dangerous for Berdych as I would play against Ferrer after having to play rubber1 and doubles... yes would be favourite but I wouldn't right off a possible Ferrer win over him.

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

i doubt rafa will play. I see feli and david playing singles. this is going to be extremely tough for spain to win. berdych is a crazy good player when he puts his mind to it. and stepanek is a great doubles. well i guess we'll just have to wait and see... but it is remarkable that even without rafa playing once this year, they're in the finals.
