Re: Kucera replaces Beck in Davis Cup Final

this post tells the story:

Karol Kucera replaces Karol Beck due to a left knee injury. Davis Cup by BNP Paribas rules allow the Referee to sanction a change of nomination after the draw for the first or second singles rubbers if a player is, in the Referee's opinion, incapacitated by illness, injury, or other unavoidable hindrance.

Kucera also replaces Beck for the fifth singles rubber on Sunday, but Beck remains nominated for the doubles on Saturday.

The order of play is now as follows:

Karol Kucera (SVK) v Ivan Ljubicic (CRO)
Dominik Hrbaty (SVK) v Mario Ancic (CRO)
Karol Beck/Michael Mertinak (SVK) v Mario Ancic/Ivan Ljubicic (CRO)
Dominik Hrbaty (SVK) v Ivan Ljubicic (CRO)
Karol Kucera (SVK) v Mario Ancic (CRO)

I agree that it will be tough, but Beck hasn't been all that great.

Imagine the 5th decisive rubber, the result is 2-2, Ancic is injured and Kucera and Ivanisevic decide the new DC champion! It would be so good to see!

I think Karlovic would play instead of Ivanisevic.

I really think Karlovic should have been given a role to play in at least one of the 4 ties this year. Indoors he is so dangerous.

I mean, in this tie he could beat Hrbaty for instance.

indeed, Ivanisevic v Kucera would be a classic.

No, he's also old and his game has been suffering ever since powerplayers came to dominate tennis. But the injury is the main part.
