I guess Kühnen hopes for a Haas comeback and then would replace Berrer and Mayer with Haas and Waske. So I doubt Kiwi will get nominated vs Spain.
First I doubt that Kiwi has any motivation left to fight for a place in a team that kicked him out like that. And I also doubt that Haas will be fit enough in April even if he can comeback in Delray. Players who are often injured are too insecure for Kühnen. That`s what he said today
So maybe Kühnen is sure that Mayer will beat Nadal. And since we would have choise of ground he can take clay again
I am sure that will help!!
In the last ties, Kühnen always nominated 5 players at first and took one out few days before the tie
official Davis Cup rules say that a team with a nonplaying coach has to nominate 5 players 10 days ahead of the tie and choose 4 out of those 5 players on Thursday before the tie. So I think Kühnen said he will take Kampke as 5th player. Much better choise than Kiwi for sure
I also don't get why he didn't commit for any tournament in February.
That`s what I thought first. But look at the rest of the schedule: he planned the Davis Cup then 3 weeks off followed by Las Vegas, Indian Wells, Miami (another Davis Cup), Monte Carlo, Rome, Hamburg (WTC?), Roland Garros, Gerry Weber, Wimbledon, Gstaad, Toronto, Cincinnati, Olympia, US Open...
that`s a tough schedule! Maybe it's not a bad idea to spend 2-3 weeks at home living a normal life before all this
sorry maybe I am overreacting but I am just very disappointed and sad
I was looking so much forward to see Kiwi
