Re: How important is Davis cup????

Depends in what country do you live I think

In Chile is very important, much as a grand slam IMO, but can see in this board that in another countries *cough* Switzerland *cough* is less important than a MM event

Thats true, should be a great match, very passionate, but I think this may be the only match Russia can win.

Well I am not sure about the doubles, but I would say big advantage for Chile, Igor will lose to Fena and Nico so Marat will have to become the incredible hulk for Russia to win.

I hope Chile shocks everyone and wins...them or Argentina. Would be nice to see certain people shut up after a big upset.

I dont think either winning would be a big upset, Flava, Argentina is the favorite and Chile is not far behind. (at pinny at least )

You're right but by MTF standards neither apparently has a chance...

Re: How important is Davis cup????

davis cup obviously isn't that important to most of the top seeds. even during andre and pete's time, they had to be "bribed" by the USTA into riding a concorde (or is it a private jet?) to play in one round.

which leads me to another question, is it something that future legends would care about to have in their resume? (e.g. federer?)

Re: How important is Davis cup????

As another person said, it matter on which country you come from. It's really important here in australia because we seem to have tradition with it but there are other countries who don't care.

Re: How important is Davis cup????

Sweden, Argentina, France, Chile, Croatia and Australia it's highly regarded as for the rest of the nations it swings from thinking that winning Futures level events are better or indifference.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: How important is Davis cup????

it is very important, but because of scheduling and everyone wanting to make money it has been shunted down the pecking order a bit

Re: How important is Davis cup????

I rate the Davis Cup final higher than any other tennis match in the whole year.

It's different. The crowd supports the team like in a football game, there is the coach in the bench, there is no tanking. It's different.
