Germany win WORLD TEAM CUP upsetting Argentina in the final!

Strong performance from Haas and Waske. Haas played every tie and every doubles. Good performance from Tommy. And finally, Waske, the lowest ranked guy made the difference in doubles play!


Overall this was the 4th World Team Cup win for Germany, the first one since 1998, where already Kiefer and Haas were on the team too.

A very good way to rebound from the pathetic home tournament in Hamburg and the correct answer to give at that time!

No ranking points at offer and they gave everything, I loved that. Certainly a good win for them and I hope this will push them forward in Davis Cup for future.



A really unexpected win for me, I didn't expect that at the beginning of the week or before the final, but these wins are said to be the sweetest ones.



Time to raise the German flag, that was a great week for German tennis:




Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

bravo Germany...did Coria and Canas play bad, or just Haas and Waske too good. A little worried Coria had trouble on serve?

At the end Coria had more trouble, in the first set it was Canas who was broken twice.

Re: Germany win WORLD TEAM CUP upsetting Argentina in the final!

maybe the german team was more together than the argentinians

Please see here if interested in downloading tennis matches.

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a Rafa hater. I am, however, a RAFATARD hater and therefore take endless delight in each Rafa loss as it allows me to sock it hard to his tards. Do try and understand the difference (TARDS)! Don't get me started on Choke-ovic though. Him I do despise. And his TARDS are the lowest of the low .

Re: Germany win WORLD TEAM CUP upsetting Argentina in the final!

Congratulations to Germany, it's a pity for me that the two singles results were the reverse of what I wanted, but it's good for the home team to finally win another title after years of being denied by superior claycourt nations. A nice moment for Waske too, it was evidently sweet revenge on Robredo in yesterday's doubles after choking against him in Hamburg the week before, now he's completed the job and it seems him and Haas are a top doubles pairing. And yes, although Mayer received a drubbing today, it was his squashing of the Frog yesterday that made this win possible!

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Yes, they seemed to be very together and everybody was enthusiasticly cheering for their teammates (this was already worse in the German team when nobody showed great interest in the matches of his fellow team members) from watching. Nobody was missing.
Germany got the wonder that they needed to win a singles match against Argentina and with the damn strong doubles this week (they only lost the first one in a close affair to the Bryan twins), all of a sudden Germany was in a good position to win the final after getting a singles win which a rational and down-to-eartch person would have hardly expected before. Waske is something like the good soul in the team and it's nice to see for him that he has a success with the team now contributing with his doubles skills because he will probably never ever be a factor in a big singles tournament.

Re: Germany win WORLD TEAM CUP upsetting Argentina in the final!

There is not much to say about the doubles match, avocadoe. Coria and Canas were completely ridiculous. Actually it was quite funny to watch because they were so bad. Everything was awful: serve, return, volley. They just don't know how to play doubles.
But it had nothing to do with Corias shoulder.
It's impossible Coria has a severe problem and plays such a silly match. I was worried too before the match because of his shoulder, but not anymore.

Waske would be tolerable if he got rid of his shirt and his obnoxious friends.
