Well, Nole will obviously win his singles and the Bryans will take the doubles. It all comes down to Troicki vs Isner/Querrey. I think Trociki can win one of those.

Re: WWW DC QF Serbia-USA

Troicki has winning H2Hs against both Querrey and Isner so if anything I'd think Serbia are the slight favourites. All 3 have been in awful form lately though so who knows...

1. Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

2. Murray wins Olympic Gold for the second time after Djokovic is blue shelled by Del Potro. Thanks Del Potro!

3. Murray wins US Open 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by [pending]. Thanks [pending]!

Re: WWW DC QF Serbia-USA

Sam and John are sucking so much right now, even Troicki can beat them so it's not a foregone conclusion USA will win, not even in the doubles. The Bryans have had some questionable losses recently.

Re: WWW DC QF Serbia-USA

Troicki to take one of his rubbers, probably against Isner...Serbia 3-2 to take it.

Voted Serbia, but that was before seeing Tipsy was out. Unconvinced now.

Re: WWW DC QF Serbia-USA

Knowing Nole he'll probably choke one of his matches. I don't think he really cares about Davis Cup

Re: WWW DC QF Serbia-USA

4 of the 5 matches are pretty simple and predictable results:

Djokovic def. Isner in straights
Djokovic def. Querrey in straights
USA wins doubles
Querrey def. Troicki in 4 sets




Here's where it gets a bit sketchy... because you just never know with Isner.

Troicki def. Isner in 5 (after Isner was up 2 sets to 1)


Serbia def. USA

Gulbis Ferrer Nishikori
Isner Nadal Dimitrov Istomin Wawrinka B. Baker

Berdych Monaco Granollers Leo-Mayer Troicki Roger-Vasselin Lu Paire

PAW Titles: Brisbane 2012 & 2014
FITD Titles: Marseille 2014

Singles: Orleans CH '11, Tampere CH '12, Medellin CH '12, Vancouver CH '15, Opava FUT '15

Re: WWW DC QF Serbia-USA

Serbia will win as long as Djokovic goes 2-0. Either they get an upset in the doubles (Nenad Z is good in his own right and the Bryans did lose to the Brazilian doubles team last tie) or Troicki beats Isner who can't beat hardly anyone right now, especially in best of 5 format (mentally will choke if nothing else).

Total toss up

Djokovic should beat both
Brians should win
But then both Americans are slight favorites vs Troicki

Also, Idaho? Seriously? the stands will be completely empty

Re: WWW DC QF Serbia-USA

The Serbs just need to be reminded about the bombing of Belgrade to fire them up

To the future!

Apparently they actually have been selling pretty well, I think I read somewhere that they had already sold at least 8,000 tickets per session which wouldn't be too bad for a 12,000 seat arena.

I don't think so, what's he doing in USA then with the clay season at the door? That's a strange thing to do if you don't care
