even without Nadal and Ferrer you wouldn't be favourites as everything depends on Raonic+the double. Pospisil against other Spaniards has very little chance.

And Raonic wouldn't be that much favourite against Almagro.

It's a too small margin to be favourites.

But you have a chance, yes, even with Nadal and Ferrer by the way, Raonic can defeat them on a fast hardcourt.

H2H with Ferrer: 0-4

Raonic is a mug on fast hardcourt when he faces a decent player. He just doesn't have time to set up his shots, think he's more of a threat on mediumish hardcourts like AO. Still not much of a threat though

The sheer tennis stupidity of the Nadaltards' posts really take me by surprise sometimes.

7-6, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 > 6-7, 4-6, 6-3, 3-6

On current form, Berdych > Federer

I know that as far as overall achievements go Federer slightly edges it as your post shows, but that's because he was lucky to peak in the weakest era ever where he only had to face mugs and clowns. Tomas, on the other hand, has peaked in the strongest era ever, with such titans as Gulbis, Darcis and Robert, among others

Berdych > Federer

Well, they need 3rd win, too. They don't have an unbeatable doubles team, and Monaco must not choke like he did against Berdy.

That's why I said almost

I think Vasek could beat one of the Spanish players though, he beat Chela last year in Montreal, beat Seppi in Toronto this year, he plays way better when he's at home, sur he wouldn't be favorited to win one but it's not so lopsided that you chalk up 2 points for the Spainards before the tie starts, I'd say he's got about a 35% chance to win one if them if it were say Almagro and Lopez or Verdasco. He did take Lopez to a very close 4 setter a year ago at the US Open.

It'll be a lot closer than most expect I think, I definitely can see Canada winning if Nadal doesn't show

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

If 1 of Nadal and Ferrer plays then I hope they play Dancevic in the first rubber against their #1 and save Vasek for the doubles and their #2 where he'd have more of a chance

On fast hard court:

H2H with Ferrer : 0-0
H2H with Nadal : 0-0

Its too bad fast hard courts don't exist anymore

But I believe most if not all of those matches were a little while ago, he played Nadal in 2010 Tokyo when he was just inside the top 200, and in Tokyo 2011 when returning from injury. His matches against Ferrer were mostly wary 2011, and maybe once this year in Barcelona? I think, he's a better player now, not that he's better then Ferrer no, but he'll have a better shot than he did in those 4 matches so that doesn't mean much.

But this discussion is moot if Nadal and Ferrer doesn't play, I don't think Nadal will with his injury an te lo travel to Canada, Ferrer might not either, but I'm expecting that he will
