DC R1: Darcis def. Zimonjic 6-2 6-4

I think this deserves a thread. Nenad was little rusty at the begging of the match cause it was his 1st singles match after 4 years (and maybe his last).

Also, this was a chance for all of you serve&volley fans to enjoy his S&V game...


Nice effort Ziki

Interesting match and decent showing from Nenad, was finishing almost every single point at the net A bit shaky in the 1st, but doing well in 2nd, even saved a couple of MPs and got one break too in the 1st

They got Zimonjic to play singles?? Really? Well, he didn't do too badly for a doubles player, I guess.

He did great considering he's almost 37 and hasn't played singles in 4 or 5 years.

I think DC rule not allowing you to put anyone not on the 4 players roster.

Just a terrible rule that contributes to needlessly exhausting & injuring players. DC teams should bring youngsters along and let them play dead rubbers. It's a no-brainer, doesn't even need to be discussed the way other issues such as reducing it to best of 3 or playing every 2 years would need to be.

Re: DC R1: Darcis def. Zimonjic 6-2 6-4

they should have a 5 player roster, two guys for doubles, 3 for singles, fifth guy can be used for dead rubbers

Re: DC R1: Darcis def. Zimonjic 6-2 6-4

I think they should allow like 4+2 players. 4 are allowed to play both live and dead rubbers and the remaining 2 are allowed to play only dead rubbers.

Yup, if dead rubbers must be played, at least the teams should be able to choose whichever player they want, it can't affect the result.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

milojevic should've played.

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.
