Why is Russia playing Tursunov against Roddick?

Am I the only one who finds it extremely weird that Russia chose to replace Youzhny with Tursunov - no doubt the weakest clay courter on the team - in the rubber against Roddick? Do they want a live fifth rubber, or what the hell's the matter? Having said that... DAVAJ DIMA!

Youzhny is tired and Davydenko has fever.

Oh, I see. Bad luck, I guess. This could turn turn out to be a real cooler.

Umm... I completely disagree. Rather, it's "lights out Russia" if Safin CAN'T get his juice together, becuase if he does, on clay, what Blake does won't matter at all. He'll stand no chance. Now of course if he doesn't...

This I agree with. If Marat has his head in the match, it's all over. But you just never know with Marat, do you?

tursunov might win the match afterall, even if it's the 5th set now and he was leading 2-0...but he's a tough guy! He can do it! daaaaavaaaaai!

Goooo SAFIN ~ BERDYCH ~ MURRAY ~ SIMON ~ NALBANDIAN ~ SODERLING

He's both tough and an oaf. Basically, you never know.

Wow, the match is really close....it could go into a TB. Their h2h is 1-0 Roddick, on a hc. Andy should just win this one to save face bcoz surely Marat would win against Blake. That's after this one right?

It couldn't go inte a tie-break, as there are no tie-breaks in the fifth sets of Davis Cup rubbers.

Ok wait, are there no fifth set tiebreaks in Davis Cup? The score now shows 6-6 30-0 in the fifth set?

This is agonizing.

Yeah, I realized that too after 6-6 and I was waiting for the first point 1 but instead 15 showed. Thanks for that.

This is an exciting match, it should be more exciting if I'm watching it live on TV but instead I'm watching live scores on the pc and just imagining what the match looks like.
