Who Will Win the 2006 Davis Cup?

For the long range forecasters, who will win the 2006 Davis Cup, only the most patriotic at the start of 2005 would have expected a Croatia vs Slovakia final, but good fortune to both of them.

Can you tell me how it feels to be hated?
Can you tell me how it feels to be loved?
Can you tell me how it feels to be respected?
Or is the answer none of the above

Re: Who Will Win the 2006 Davis Cup?

Chile, have a home tie against Slovakia. Hrbaty has handled the crowds in Buenos Aires and in Brazil and managed to win there, though Santiago will be fun and I doubt whether Beck and the doubles will overcome the Chileans. All hinging on whether Massu and Gonzo are fit, this two man team wil be tough to beat, the Americans if they get through round 1 are going to have to find a grasscourt or an ice rink.

Argentina should win a Davis Cup soon, though one can never tell.

Draw is like this, the home team is listed first.

Austria vs Croatia (s)
Argentina (s) vs Sweden
Belarus * vs Spain (s)
Switzerland vs Australia (s)

Germany vs France (s)
Netherlands vs Russia (s)
USA (s) vs Romania
Chile (c) vs Slovak Republic (s)

First round losers compete in Play-off ties with Zonal Group I Qualifiers
Key
Seeded (s)
Choice of Ground (c)
Choice of ground decided by lot *

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".

You don't fancy one of your guys to beat Melzer on clay?

GWH, the tie will not be playing in Santiago. Because Nico and Feña prefers to play at sea level. So the tie is already in discussion for to play in Viña del Mar or La Serena (another coastal city)

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:

The Chileans will make into a football like atmosphere and thanks for that information about the location.

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".
