Who will Win the Davis Cup Final: Croatia vs Slovakia?

Congrats to both sides and we will have a new Davis Cup winner irrespective of who wins.

Both of the nations deserve to be there and who will win the final.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Who will Win the Davis Cup Final: Croatia vs Slovakia?

This is an awesome final.. exciting for both countries. I'm pretty torn as to who will win. I like both teams. I think I'm going to tip the edge to Slovakia. I think Beck could take out Ancic in a singles match, especially since the tie would be in Slovakia. So unless Ljubicic wins all three again for the third time in a row, I think it's Slovakia's.

I'll be interested to see the court selection. Both teams play well on the same surfaces, so it's not like they can really pick a surface that hinders their opponents too greatly.

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

Re: Who will Win the Davis Cup Final: Croatia vs Slovakia?

I want Slovakia to win, for Experimentee and also as I like Dom.

But I wonder if Goran's presence will ignite the Croatians to win?

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Re: Who will Win the Davis Cup Final: Croatia vs Slovakia?

congrats to both teams! they've had impressive wins on the way to the final, and I guess one thing sure in the final is it will be played on very fast courts.

I think the winner will be the host nation (which will be decided by draw I hear?).
Good luck to both teams!

Re: Who will Win the Davis Cup Final: Croatia vs Slovakia?

They have never played before and the DC organisers didn't expect this final, so this will make things interesting.

If the Croatians pick the surface they could easily pick clay, because of Beck's weakness on that surface.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I'm pretty sure it will be in Slovakia.

Re: Who will Win the Davis Cup Final: Croatia vs Slovakia?

None of them had an easy road to the final (euphemism) so all credit to them. I guess that Slovakia advantage to receive (did they travel once this year?) and choose the surface will be less a factor (apart from the crowd factor) because Croatia prefer fast surface as well (what wasn't the case for Spain and Argentina)

I say Croatia. But Slovakia have never been the favourite in most of their encounter this year, and they seem to relish it.

Is Ljubicic really much better (real question)? Ljubicic has been the man for Croatia this year, they should try and find a surface which suits him I think.
