Re: 2008 Vamos Argentina Davis Cup Thread

Great to see Gaston and nearly all of the players there to support the current team.

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".

They are on the way to making to the DC final and it will be at home.

There are so many people involved, but they tend to be forgotten.

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

Good that nearly everyone was there to support the team and Gaston of course turned up.

1 all, well just makes the doubles even more crucial than it was before.

Hopefully Luli won't regret turning down the chance to pick Lucas instead of Chucho.

Re: 2008 Vamos Argentina Davis Cup Thread

I wonder if Luli has the balls to admit publicly that he made a fatally flawed decision.

In case you didn't understand my coded message, I'm very angry right now.

Well, it's not over yet, but the situation is very dangerous
Nalby will be tired tomorrow but so will Lopez.
Hoping for the best...

Im angry too, but for different reasons. There are widespread rumours that Nalbandian fought with poor Del Potro yesterday, he then had a heated argument with Mancini regarding who should be the other singles player on Sunday, and today he had a fight with Calleri. Im fed up with this diva attitude. He then stomped off and shirked the press conference and will be fined 10,000 dollars by the ITF. I think Del Potro needs lots of support from fellow players and the media right now when he must be feeling like hell, and Calleri played better than Nalbandian today, above his ranking, so whats DNs beef anyway? If Acasuso plays the fourth rubber tomorrow and loses, I hope people will recognize his courage playing the decisive match against a much higher ranked player and not crucify him.

Im also upset by the Argentine crowds unsporting attitude. Today I felt embarrassed by my fellow-countrymen! I want Argentina to win, but not this way...

I could never blame Chucho for possible defeat. Neither Delpo for going to Shanghai. Luli is the only man to blame. He should have chosen Lucas to form a doubles pair with David. David made it clear he wanted that way... Anyway, let's hope Chucho will find a way to pull out a miraculous win today. And in any case, whatever the final outcome we still love Chucho.

I was hooked and couldn't stop watching tennis. I have more important things to worry about. It's about time.

Lucas Arnold shouldn't have been picked, considering Chucho is likely to be playing the 4th rubber, they need the flexibility of 4 singles players, especially with del Potro's condition.

Win as a team and lose as a team, looking for scapegoats is easy. They are expected to win the event, but pressure does things to people.

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

Do you really think that Chucho is a better singles player than Gordo* on that surface?

*I mean a "normal" Gordo, not a "shattered" one... You seem to be missing my point. Perhaps I'm wrong, I don't know.

As Vale said Calleri was the better player in the doubles match, second of all. Chucho matches up better with Ferrer than Calleri does, therefore if there is to be a replacement then Acasuso is a better fit than what Calleri is, unless Ferrer is substituted for Verdasco, then this is less clear.

If you want to make a point and not be misunderstood, then come out and say it.

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