Maybe Russia should have Davydenko play Roddick instead of Youzhny?

I think a fresh opponent would be good for Russia now. Roddick already played Youzhny at the US OPEN recently and he beat him. Roddick hasn't played Davydenko in over a year. And Davydenko has improved greatly since then, he can return big serves and he's a very dangerous and a serious fighter. Clay is also Davydenko's best surface he reached the French Open semifinals last year, this year he reached the quaterfinals. And he has won titles on clay. Youzhny may be tired from playing singles and doubles. I also don't think the Russian coach made the right decision by having Tursanov play doubles instead of Safin. Safin volleys better and he's a much more powerful player.

Agenda dear, most probably Davydenko will play instead of Youzhny vs Roddick.
And Marat needs to be fresh tomorrow ... just in case. That was the reasoning behind the doubles pairing.

Don't think it will matter to the outcome of the tie

It'll be the deciding rubber to take your country into the Davis Cup Final. Blake will win, he has the steadiest game on the tour when it comes to big matches

If it comes down to it, maybe Blake can pull a surprise, and we can always count on Safin to oaf
