DC 2007 1R : Switzerland vs Spain

You guys know what it may mean... Swiss choose the surface I suppose

Fed said recently DC would be one of his main goals in the future. Rafa's already won the cup. This year both of them skipped this stage of DC because of different reasons

Which team's gonna be the winner? Will it be someone other than Roger/Rafa in any team who can give victory to his team?

I'd so laugh if neither Rafa or Federer could play this in the end. I'll pick Spain though.

Re: DC 2007 1R : Switzerland vs Spain

Either BOTH Rafa and the Fed should show up, or none of them.
Otherwise this DC meeting will end up as a total farce for the team that actually does bring their Main Man on. So I'm hoping for them both to be showing up there, of course!

And if they do... well, who's to say how it'll end up. The Swiss will get to choose the underground, and I bet it won't be *clay*.

Good news for Switzerland if it means Roger will play this tie.

Re: DC 2007 1R : Switzerland vs Spain

A carpet court that has low bounce reacting little to ball spin and reasonably fast.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 19 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 26 Master Series.
Nadal 15 GS, 30 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 12 GS, 5 Year End Masters, 30 Master Series.

Re: DC 2007 1R : Switzerland vs Spain

great draw I also think the swiss will choose carpet, though...
