Davydenko left off of Davis Cup team for Safin and Youzhny

I understand Safin playing Roddick because he is Russia's most talented player and he has the game that can stand up to Andy. However, I am shocked that world no.5 Davydenko has been left off the Davis Cup team. But the more I think about it maybe the Russian captain has a good plan. Because Blake has a 4-0 record against Davydenko so he's used to his style of play. And I believe Roddick has a winning record against Davydenko as well. But clay is Davydenko's best surface and out of all the Russians he is the most consistent in his results. But Roddick and Blake are used to him. So Youzhny and Blake everything is new James has never played him before. And later on they can use Davydenko or Tursanov because both guys are such excellent players.

i know. It's his fault. I guess the girlfriend spends everything as we could see in the blog

Re: Davydenko left off of Davis Cup team for Safin and Youzhny

Kolya is tired because the last we saw in the blog his gf had vanished with the credit card.

It took 4 days scouring the streets of Beijing to find her. By then she's spent $820,000 and they're now the proud owners of two giant pandas and a Confucian temple not to mention a sexy yin yang thong.

He didn't get much sleep for worring - he thought she'd been arrested for being a member of the Falun Gong and he couldn't get any information from the Chinese Ministry of Information.

Thankfully she found her way back to him after eating nothing but Chinese Food (of course, they just call it Food) and they could finally leave for Russia.

He was too tired to blog all that though, unfortunately.

Davydenko makes enough money. I don't get why he plays every single week. He is a millionaire he certainly doesn't need the money. I do think he overextends himself sometimes. But hasn't he won at least 2 or 3 titles this year?

Nope I don't think it matters, especially with the way the draw has turned out. Andy will lose to Marat, then James will lose, US won't come back from 0-2 down lol. I actually think James would've had a better shot to beat Davydenko tomorrow than Youzhny.

Kolya is really very tired and not ready to play on Friday. Those who saw russian team practice confirm it. Tarpishev didn't have a choice. But he can make him play on Sunday.

Well . . . Youzhny deserves to, he has had a strong performance. Safin is just Safin, and I understand his choices. But, I feel bad for Koyla! I hope this is what he wanted!

So, what are we thinking? That the Bryans are going to post the only win for the US?

No wonder Patrick McEnroe loves them so much.

Are Safin or Youzhny really good on the dirt though? I thought I read they weren't crazy about the surface either.

After day 1 USA will have at least one point . I don't consider unbelievable that Andy can beat the headcase of Safin ( and don't forget that the current Safin isn't the old Safin ) . Roddick has always been a very competitive player and in Seville against Spain he played two very good matches against specialists though he lost them , and why Blake can't beat a non-clay specialist like Youzhny ?? .This year Blake showed that being on fire can be also dangerous on clay.

The second point with the Bryans is pretty sure . Russia facing a lot of pressure in the third day because every match is a " match ball " would be too much and the third point of US will come true.

On Sunday night you will give me the reason
