Cool Martín to complete new DC team!

http://www.marca.com/edicion/noticia...441193,00.html

A EXPENSAS DEL ESTADO FÍSICO DE JUAN CARLOS FERRERO
'Beto' Martín viajará a Brno con el equipo de Copa Davis

'Beto' Martín viajará a Brno con el equipo español de Copa Davis para afrontar la eliminatoria contra la República Checa (6 al 8 de febrero), a la espera de lo que pase con Ferrero que llega de Australia tocado fisicamente.

El de Onteniente, que alcanzó las semifinales en el Open de Australia a pesar de arrastrar una lesión, no descarta el viajar a Brno, una vez se reponga del viaje desde Melbourne.

La expedición estará formada por el 'G-3', el doctor del equipo Angel Ruiz Cotorro, el delegado, Alberto Riba, y los jugadores Rafael Nadal, Tommy Robredo, Feliciano López y 'Beto' Martín.
________________________

Basically it says Beto will travel to Brno with the Spanish team to play the tie against Czechs while it's waited the decision Ferrero takes... after reaching semis in AUS Open Ferrero hasn't dismissed travelin to Brno once he recovers from the journey. The expedition will be the doctor, the delegate and Nadal, Tommy, Feli and Beto.

The least we can say it's a brave decision
let's hope it works, but they all are so young and unexperienced... on the other hand they have prooved their talent... just let's wait for this great tie

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

Re: Martín to complete new DC team!

Not sure about the line-up ... this year Spain has a great chance to win DC with both Australia and USA matches would be played on clay in Spain.

Re: Martín to complete new DC team!

looking on bright side, Spain might get to play GBR in play-offs in September and then see Henman get his ass kicked well and proper and made more fun out of by the British Media

Oh, TBE. I'll have you know that Lopez and Nadal will lead Spain to victory

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Martín to complete new DC team!

Beto Martin indoors?????

Corretja had good results in St Petersburg last year, and he didnt completely ming in Australia, I would take him over Beto.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Re: Martín to complete new DC team!

If I recall correctly, Corretja told them he didn't want to play DC this year. He wants to focus on getting his singles ranking back to double digits

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Martín to complete new DC team!

I have to admit... after I found out that MOya and Ferrero were questionable, I paid a peanut down on Team Jiri to take it. Hope I'm wrong, though.

Although I don't see Lopez beating Novak, I think that Nadal might have a shot, if they play him (so much for being eased on to the team through doubles, huh?).

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Martín to complete new DC team!

This is very weird.. Why put Martín in the Spanish Davis Cup team, when there are so many better players you can choose from. Heck, even someone like Cuadrado would do better.

It's almost as weird as the Forget's decision to not select Santoro.

Re: Martín to complete new DC team!

This is shocking, Martin hasnt even been havig good results lately on a surface he usually does well on, so why play him indoors? They should have put Nadal, Lopez, Robredo, Costa or even Corretja over Martin for singles.

Re: Martín to complete new DC team!

I assume that they went by the rankings to pick Martin. I read that Costa didn't want to play unless he was promised a singles spot.

I lack direction.
