Who will win the 2012 Davis Cup Czech Republic vs. Spain? (Berdych having some fun)

Going to be held in the Czech Republic and definitely not on a slow surface. Spain have won too many times as of late, but the Czechs better hope that Stepanek or Berdych don't get hurt that they miss the final?

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".

2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

So who do you think will win, i think in doubles CZE are favorites and Berdych can win at home vs Nadal, Ferrer, Almagro i see it 50-50 tie.

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

CZE hope will play on carpet- i think Taraflex or what is the name they played in 2009 can be used i belive in DC, if not than some fast indoor HC.

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

70-30 for the Czechs. The Czechs should win the doubles but that will require Berdych to play 3 days consecutively which may sap his energy - Granollers/Lopez just made the US Open SF, Lopez has won IW doubles title twice etc. so they're not bad on hardcourts and not necessarily easy to put away...

Berdych v Ferrer - Berdych favoured but Ferrer is higher ranked and think won against him at WTF last year. Can see it going 5
Alamgro v Stepanek - Think Almagro takes this.
Berdych v Almagro - MATCH OF THE TIE!! Hope there's some hitting at each other.
Ferrer v Stepanek - Ferrer takes this.

WIll come down to how Ferrer and Berdcyh play. I don't see them using Rosol as though he had that win against Nadal he couldn't even qualify for the US Open so hardly consistent!

If Nadal plays (which I really doubt) then Spain are favoured a bit. Good match up. Better than another Spain/Argentina lovefest on clay. A different atmosphere and different surface.

Don´t thin it will be such important, they need to beat STepanek 2x and win doubles, but Berdych on fast surface indoors with no wind will beat Rafa finally - Rafa if will play his confidence will be low, because he won´t win much indoors or in Asia - if he will play in Asia already, after WTF his confidence and form won´t be good for sure. I belive Berdych will finally beat Nadal after long years.

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

Hope that the Czechs win, really think that the team of Stepanek/Berdych deserves it. They've won a lot of ties with both guys playing singles and doubles.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

CZE has a good chance. They should win the doubles, Berdych should beat the number 2 spanish and might beat even Nadull on a fast indoor surface. Also I can Stepanek troubling the number 2 spaniard.

Roger Federer | Benoît Paire| Stanislas Wawrinka | Nick Kyrgios

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

Doubles will be key imho. I remember Lopez/Verdasco winning the doubles more or less comfortably in 2009, but that was different circumstances - slow-ass-clay and Stepanek had lost a 5-set-epic against Pics the day before.

If the Czechs can win the Doubles, they might be in with a shout. Still consider Spain to be slight favorites, much will depend on Tomas. He probably won't win a GS title so this will be his great chance for glory (and yes, I'd definitely consider the DC a bigger title than Bercy 2005).

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

Spain 5-0. The only chance for them is for Rosol to play his pigeon on his favourite surfaces.

Don't get why they insist on having Berdych play the doubles too. What's wrong with Dlouhy or Rosol stepping in?

Almagro won't play, surely?
