Am I the only one who doesn't care about the Davis Cup?

Annoying disruption in my tennis following schedule, I couldn't care less about tennis being played as a team sport and I don't experience any of the magic other people seem to associate with this event.

I am the Nelson Mandela of MTF

I find it nice to see some of these matches that happen in Davis Cup.

Re: Am I the only one who doesn't care about the Davis Cup?

Emotions, rivalries, best of 5, biased crowds, different surface speeds, crying people, big trophy, a shot at glory (even for the lesser gods like Troicki). What's not to like?

It's a waste of energy for the players and the upcoming clay court schedule. Kill themselves over this weekend and then they feel the effects of it.

It's bad for the tour.

Re: Am I the only one who doesn't care about the Davis Cup?

I've got mixed feelings about it.

Pros
-Best of 5
-Different atmosphere than a normal tennis tournament (loud/crazy)
-Players get the pick the surface that suits them

Cons
-Teams. I really like that generally tennis is an individual sport
-Coaches
-Interrupts the schedule/tires players out

I don't see what's not to like. Anyway, watching is not required if you don't like fortunately

“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.”

Would you like another boring 250 instead?

I don't care about it at all from a patriotic perspective (as I'm completely unpatriotic anyway). But the format is good and it's more tennis to watch

Tennis wouldn't be the same without it. It's the only chance you get to cheer for your own country when watching tennis. Besides, there's a great history behind it.

Exactly.

A whole different brand of emotions than your usual boring tennis week.

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!
