World Team Cup

With Vince playing well and the Bryans dominating the doubles, I like Team USA's chances.

They drew Argentina, Australia and the Netherlands in their group, and will kick all their asses!

Re: World Team Cup

Yea, it's a great event! I was there for the weekend and it was just great. It was my first time there so I was pretty excited. I got to see all players / teams practise which was really cool :-) I kinda ran into Robby and Vince all the time lol
On Sunday I went to see Germany vs Spain which was cool. I got to see so many players again that day...

Re: World Team Cup

I only saw four games of the 1st set until I had to leave, but so far I could see Vince wasn't playing his best and usual tennis today
better luck next time!

@bostontennisplayer
yes, it is on TV, at least in wide parts of Europe and in Germany people can receive a German channel (via satellite mostly) that is broadcasting about 3-4 hours a day. Usually the two singles of one tie and during the break they switch also over for that time to show the tie on the other court.

@Heike
I checked the homepage for the tickets and the prices were really high IMO. How much did you pay for a ticket? what category?
But nevertheless, it must have been fun! It's always great to see tennis live at the courts.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: World Team Cup

@ Neely
yea, the tickets are really expensive :-( Well, I can only really compare to the Halle tournament since I'm going there for several years now. Best final tickets for Duesseldorf are approx. twice as much as for Halle!! I had the lowest category which was 26 EUR per ticket!! But yea, it was great fun!! I'm gonna go again Thursday / Friday which I'm soo looking forward to :-)

Re: World Team Cup

Heike,
in Munich I had tickets for between 12€ to 15€ (hab aber Gebrauch von einer Studentenermäßigung gemacht ) on two days of 1st and 2nd round. Lowest category (row 13), but the centrecourt in Munich isn't so big and it was still a great place I think.
Was really worth it, you could see everything the whole day, Centrecourt and all other courts, too.
BTW, I also saw Vince in his match against Dieter Kindlmann

Re: World Team Cup

as we don't know how to judge Andre's claycourt game after that loss in St. Pölten, I think Vince is the best US player on clay right now. As far as what I could see from his performance today against Chela, he was really playing well (although he lost in the end) and the match much closer than it looked like!
