Will it be the same , clay Moscow? OR are they allowed to change it to something else. I very much doubt they should put clay as it will be a 50/50 contest. Nalby/Calleri/Acasuso are all experienced clay courters/specialists. I think if Russia want to smoke the Argies they should put an Indoor carpet court and Safin will smoke em out. Davydenko has improved his HC game, Youzhny is probably better than Calleri/Acasuso on a HC. Tursunov has had reasonable results on hard. Safin should play doubles.

Safin owns Nalby on faster surface

Of course they are allowed to change it. Are you on LSD?

Probably an ice-skating rink.
Kidding aside, an incredibly-fast taraflex carpet.

Re: if russia win, what surface will the DC final be held?

If Russia wins tomorrow, they will lay out the fastest indoor court they can possibly make. Nalbandian is an accomplished player on fast courts, but the rest of the Argentine team are clay court specialists.

It's just you don't want to have a lot of expectations, because when you start to have a lot of expectations you just end up losing in the third round to God knows who. ~Marat Safin, summarizing his career

I think what Glenn is trying to say is that Nalbandian has not yet hit the heights of Voltchkov. The day Nalbandian has to borrow a shirt and shorts from other players because he neither has a sponsor nor can afford his own - will be the day Nalbandian has truly arrived.

Winning a Masters Cup, being a Wimbledon Finalist etc etc pales in comparison to being the 700-something ranked player in the world. Canas is already ranked a couple of hundread places higher and he's only been back a week.

Ha Ha, I can't believe what I'm saying but I agree with you!

He/She is Brazilian. I don't know why he/she hides his/her nationality. But you're right, he/she is dumb and an anti-argentinean who said that Vilas wasn't not a good player because tennis from the 70s was hardly tennis. So according to his theory, McEnroe, Connors, Lendl, Borg, etc,etc were hardly tennis players. How Smart!!

Finals of Wimbledon in the worst final ever played there. Choked as always and took a spanking.

Won a MC defeating Federer who played in a wheelchair almost. Wow! That's an accomplishment.

When the year ends fat Dave will fall back to the place he should have never left: out the top 10.

I don't hide my nationality. I change the flag to the country my avatar player's from.
Yeah, what I'm saying is that you can't compare a slam-winner of the 90's with a slam-winner of the 70's. Those players would be beaten by the likes of Marach and Elseneer today.
