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.
