Best and worst participant of Russia-France DC tie?

Who contributed the most to his team performance?


I'd say Tarp and Michael Youzhny are candidates for the best and Richard Gasquet is probably for the worst...

What do you think?

IMO Grosjean was both the best (against Andreev) and the worst (in doubles) french player.

If Gasquet couldn't beat Youzny who was barely able to play because of cramping then worst defnately goes to him.

I hope he gets his demons sorted soon.

Best - Youzny for winning when cramping or Safin for playing well when he has had an awful start to the season.

Everyone in Russian team made a part to be in Semis. It's one of the reasons they are winning so far. Someone is always there to play for their country.

The same for the French team. They tried hard... only Russians were better this time..

Nobody mentioning Davydenko? I didn't see Gasquet-Youzhny, but I watched all the other matches and Davydenko was very, very poor for a top 5 player (and a claycourter). In singles and in doubles.

As for the other guys I've seen, they all had their good and bad moments except Safin, so I'll go with Safin for the best.

Probably Marat, played well enough today for a straight setter.

Re: Best and worst participant of Russia-France DC tie?

I couldn't watch the 2nd singles match, so if Youzhny really had those crampings problems, then Gasquet probably was indeed the most disappointing french player this weekend.

France:

1) Mathieu
2) Grosjean & Llodra
4) Gasquet

Russia:

1) Safin
2) Youzhny
3) Andreev
4) Davydenko

Re: Best and worst participant of Russia-France DC tie?

Safin winning in straights and everyone else going to 5 or at least 4 sets is a bit of a reversal of expectations, no matter who he's playing.

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Russophilic member of the MTF Perv Squad--objectifying Tarpischev, Kafelnikov, and Volkov like whoa.

Interesting ppl keep mentioning Davydenko, but he did win even though it was in doubles.

Many people are unfair to Davydenko's effort. Kolya usually does everything he can to help his team. He has good and bad days like anyother professional tennis players, but he's always there for his team.
