Robredo/Ferrer ... New Doubles Team for Davis Cup ???

I'm 99% that David and Tommy are playing together in Cincy in order to prepare the play-offs against Italy.
JCF and Rafa will probably play singles with Tommy as a doubles especialist. I think these 3 will be in Italy for sure.
And the 4th ... i think David deserves to play in the team after his excellent season, and has some doubels titles.

And they just have beaten one of the top teams, Etlis/Rodriguez 64 67 61

I think Nadal will play also in doubles and I hope Verdasco will be his partner

I will be happy enough if I have the chance to see Tommy on Davis Cup squad again this year
Same goes for Feliciano he's one of the best in fast courts

Carlos, Tommy, Rafa, Feli, Nicolás, Marcel
Rainer, Radek, Benji Becker, Jarkko Nieminen, Melzer, Nalbandián, Tursunov, Starace, Djokovic, Youzhny

Re: Robredo/Ferrer ... New Doubles Team for Davis Cup ???

I don't see how playing on hard courts would be preparation for them to play together on clay for Davis Cup. Plus, Tommy has played doubles with pretty much everyone Spanish at some point or another.. He played doubles with Rafa last week in Montreal... a much more likely DC team in my opinion. Plus the only reason Tommy is playing with David here is because Rafa didn't want to. They were originally going to play together here too.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Yep. I'm sure they're playing together because Rafael didn't feel like playing doubles.

I don't think Rafa will play doubles...he'll just focus on singles and they'll put others into the doubles eg robredo and ferrer

Re: Robredo/Ferrer ... New Doubles Team for Davis Cup ???

yes but Rafa won't play 3 5set matches. i'm sure and Robredo will be in the doubles for sure...
and if he's playing with David .... i think is the clue!

Let´s see, imo Nadal will outgun Seppi in 3 sets on Friday and will likely play next day also.

Re: Robredo/Ferrer ... New Doubles Team for Davis Cup ???

I think Robredo-Ferrer in Cincy is a trial for Davis Cup.

The best doubles player in Spain nowadays is Nadal, without no doubt

I think the spanish captains has a very big dilemma about if Nadal should play only singles or also doubles but with the worry of Nadal's physical condition for sunday matches..

The two best doubles players in Spain according to the results are Nadal and Ferrer, even they were gonna play together in Umag because Arrese asked them to play together , and that was gonna be another trial for Davis Cup but Nadal pulled out ..... I look forward to watching a doubles composed of Rafa and David , i think they can be a very good couple .

I have never liked a lot the doubles Rafa&Tommy because i had the feeling they were two good " singles " players playing together a doubles match and not a real team playing coordinated ..

In my opinion Rafa plays more comfortable with Feliciano and Verdasco than with Robredo , although i always prefer Verdasco as partner and not Feli because he's a very lazy player, apathetic and it has to be very hard to play with him when he has his typical " bad " day when showing he would be more happy being in a beach ..

I'm among the persons who think the best potential double in Spain is Nadal-Verdasco.

I guess the four picks will be : Nadal, Robredo , Ferrero , Ferrer . I'm not sure that Kitzbuhel final will be enough for Vedascado gets to take a spot in the DC team against Italy....Maybe if Ferrero has a weeding that weekend ( a very likely fact ) Verdasco will have his oportunity ...

And the elected doubles would be Nadal-Robredo with a lot of chances and less for Nadal-Ferrer.

Moya decided to pull of spanish davis team during this year , but Ferrero not..

In the first Davis cup tie this year against Slovak Republic , Ferrero prefered to prepare Indian Wells and Miami instead of playing that tie, showing his lack of commitment with spanish team.
