Re: Random Davis Cup info

MADRID, March 2 (Reuters) - Holders Spain have lodged a formal complaint over the quality of the indoor carpet playing surface due to be used for this week's Davis Cup first round tie against Slovakia.

"Our players say they have never played on a surface like this and the regulations state it should have been used at at least three other ATP tournaments," team coach Juan Avendano told sports daily Marca.

There are only five other tournament sites with an indoor carpet surface -- Basil, Lyon, Milan, Moscow and St Petersburg -- and the Spanish players have complained about the quality of the bounce on the Bratislava court.

"The surface appears different from all the others," added Avedano. "The players say that serves were impossible to return in training. No two balls bounce the same."

International Tennis Federation (ITF) tournament official Soren Frimmel will make a decision about the surface on Thursday and could insist it is relaid

Re: Random Davis Cup info

yeah...I just heard all that about the courts on the Spanish news today!!! So much for Feli saying he liked the court a few days ago!!!

But I can't believe they didn't put Rafa in the singles!!! I guess it's more even this way and doesn't tire anyone out too much. Great opportunity for Feli and Nando tho! Esp Nando!!! Hope he can do well!!! VAMOS FER!

If Rafa had played and won his last 2 tournaments indoors, then I wouldn't have believed it either...but he played on clay, Fer specifically played indoors in order to play this tie, so I think he deserves this shot. I'm sure if Jordi felt Rafa was up to playing singles he would have chosen him.

Vamos Fer!!

Hope they get the court fiasco sorted out asap too!


GOOD LUCK

Re: Random Davis Cup info

yeah I agree...it does make sense...for some reason I just thought they'd still put him in...u know how they are when it comes to Rafa and DC...but I think this arrangement is much better

Re: Random Davis Cup info

Looks like our Fernando is very happy!!! VAMOS CARIÑOOOO

Vesdasco jugará la Copa Davis
Bratislava. Agencias


El madrileño Fernando Verdasco, junto a Feliciano López designado por los capitanes del equipo español para disputar los encuentros individuales de la primera jornada de la eliminatoria frente a Eslovaquia, reconoció que la posibilidad de jugar la Copa Davis "es un sueño cumplido realidad" y por eso es "muy feliz

"Soy muy feliz. Es como un sueño. Siempre quise jugar la Copa Davis y ahora me llega la ocasión. Defender a tu país en una competición como ésta es algo único. Intentaré entrar en la pista con toda la ilusión del mundo. Y espero que Feliciano gane el primer partido para entrar en el mío con la intención de lograr un dos a cero en la eliminatoria", dijo el jugador español.

"Espero que podamos ofrecer nuestro mejor nivel. Tenemos un grupo muy equilibrado con grandes opciones. La pista no es nuestra preferida, pero tenemos que demostrar que somos los campeones", añadió Verdasco, que tras formar parte como ayudante del equipo de Copa Davis afronta su debut en la competición.

"Ya estuve en Alicante y Sevilla como ayudante del equipo y ya sé cómo es este ambiente. Me enteré ayer de que iba a jugar. Vimos las posibilidades entre todos -jugadores y técnicos- y decidimos lo mejor para el equipo y se determinó que iba a jugar yo", añadió el tenista madrileño, que reconoció no sentirse nervioso.

Los dos triunfos logrados por Verdasco ante Hrbaty, en el Masters Series de Madrid y en la ronda previa del torneo de Long Island, terminaron por decidir su inclusión para la primera jornada. El madrileño conoce bien el número uno eslovaco.

"Hrbaty es un grandísimo jugador que está entre los veinte mejores del mundo. Hace poco era el doce y eso no está al alcance de cualquiera. Será un partido muy difícil aunque las dos veces que jugué contra él gané. Pero esto es especial. Juega en su casa y es un partido a cinco sets. Contra él siempre he jugado muy bien y eso me dio confianza y sensaciones muy buenas", concluyó Verdasco.

Re: Random Davis Cup info

cute photo lady carlita! nice to see fer so happy to be part of the team!

vamos, fer!!!

it is right that fer play first... he'll have enough pressure and will be nervous... best to leave a more experienced DC player for the 5th rubber, if aboslutamente necesario!

VAMOS, ESPANA!!! PUEDE GANAR!

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Re: Random Davis Cup info

I wish all the best for Verdasco. He seems like a such a sweetheart. (with great looks to boot ) I think that this is a great opportunity for him to prove what he's worth! Vamos!!

King Juan Carlos is back to take the crown!
