people think what they want but I think some on MTF have had a simple opinion about Fed and Davis cup popularized many years ago and can't imagine it can be more complex and different, and there's no "Davis cup season", only several ties separated from each other from a long distance.

Re: Who will win the 2013 Davis Cup and Draw Dicussion Thread

if Swiss play Argie in semis it'll be held in Arg, so thats the end of the line

Fed will know this and wont bother with DC in 2013

It all depends whether Nadal can play, but if Spain has both Nadal and Ferrer... I do not really see them losing.

France and Argentina would be my other picks.

"can" play ?

he announced officially after last year's final that he would stop playing Davis cup.

Ferrer was less clear and finally decided to play again.

Re: Who will win the 2013 Davis Cup and Draw Dicussion Thread

Yeahhhhh absolute worst case scenario for Germany And the Austrians get the easiest team for the 2nd year in a row and will then be seeded from next year on if they manage to beat the Russian-Kazakhs

We would've played at home against nearly everyone, but of course we get Argentinia away. We lost badly to them this year so it will get even worse in Parque Roca next February.

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

Fed will do as usual : go round by round, if he's fit, he will play the first round, and then he'll see, round by round.

Everything can happen in the semi and Wawrinka is a very good claycourt player.

Who knows ? He may have a shit year in slams, lose early in the US Open, and then the Davis cup may appear as the only way to save his year. Things like that happened for many players in the past. First win the first two ties, which are winnable, then see.

He explained later on that he was talking about the forthcoming DC ties but that was not a definite reply.

thanks for the info.

I think he should be more careful about his communication everywhere it was written "Nadal stops Davis cup" ... as well as Ferrer and Lopez, and Verdasco a few days later of course it made drama ! Besides, clearly it's his announcement which led to the other players' words.

If he only meant "I will play Davis cup less often" (and he had already missed quite many of the DC ties before, especially when playing away, which is what Spain was going to do in coming years -they were lucky with the draw in 2012- considering the rule), he didn't need to talk much.

Even in recent times I had the impression that his communication is not well managed : clear and coherent, harmonized between several persons, is always the best.

No stuff like Danny Nestor serving 53 aces against Guga in 5 sets, but they will go to the fastest level possible.

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".

Why not just play indoors in Basel? It's not as if Federer normally struggles there....

But Wawrinka also needs to have the surface suitable for him so that he can beat Steps and try to win in doubles
