Switzerland will win the davis cup next year!

You heard it here first!

The only team who would stop them is spain and possible Argentina on clay (whose turn is it to play at home, Spain, Argentina or Switzerland?). Federer will win all matches he will play next year in davis cup, Wawrinka will have a good chanse against anyone specialy playing in Switzerland and in doubles Federer has trained alot with Alegro and won a couple of double tournaments with him the latest year, I bet they could win against even the best doubles specialists if it they had to!

Who else belives in Switzerland as 2006 davis cup champions?

Ofcourse Spain would be the big favorite if they faced each other, I would like that as a final. Imagine: Federer beating the whole spanish armanda with fanatic supporters on clay! Federer beating Ferrero in the 1st match, then the swiss doubles team beating the spanish (which really ís not that good even on clay) and then in the decisive 5th game Federer beating Nadal in a classic 5 set match with fanatic spanish supporters booing every step Federer takes on the pitch. Maybe I am dreaming, but that would be the most exciting tennis moment in my life, dont you agree?

Anyway, Switzerland must be the favorite to win davis cup 2006 if Federer plays all their matches.

I will however not promise to never visit this board if this wont be the case, however I would never make a prediction again in these boards if I once again do a terrible prediction!

Prediction for the rest of the decade:
Federer winner: Usopen 05, 06, 07, 09 Aopen:06, 07, 10 Roland GArros:06, 08 Wimbledon:05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10 (Roddick always runner up)
Safin winner: Aopen 08 Gasquet winner: USopen 08, Aopen 09, RG: 10
Nadal winner: RG 07 Monfils winner: USopen 10
Guga winner: RG 2010
Roddick and Hewitt together winner of: 3 sidney, 4 Adelaide, 3 washington, 3 san jose, 3 indianapolis, 2 houston, 2 memphis, 5 queens and one master series title (where Safin, Agassi, Federer and Nadal happens to all be injured).

Re: Switzerland will win the davis cup next year!

Swiss still needs to win the tie against Great Britain

But with a good draw they can win the DC for sure

Re: Switzerland will win the davis cup next year!

The greatest differense between Switzerland today and 2 years ago is that before they had 2 matches for free and 2 matches they would surely lose and the doubles meant everything facing anyone. Now they have a top 50 player who can play pretty good on both clay and hardcourt. Also Federer and Alegro is alot better doubles team than they were 2 years ago.

Prediction for the rest of the decade:
Federer winner: Usopen 05, 06, 07, 09 Aopen:06, 07, 10 Roland GArros:06, 08 Wimbledon:05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10 (Roddick always runner up)
Safin winner: Aopen 08 Gasquet winner: USopen 08, Aopen 09, RG: 10
Nadal winner: RG 07 Monfils winner: USopen 10
Guga winner: RG 2010
Roddick and Hewitt together winner of: 3 sidney, 4 Adelaide, 3 washington, 3 san jose, 3 indianapolis, 2 houston, 2 memphis, 5 queens and one master series title (where Safin, Agassi, Federer and Nadal happens to all be injured).

They'd play this one at home ? Difficult surface choice, we know grass would bother Nadal, but also Wawrinka... plus I don't know a grass court has aleready been done in Switzerland for DC, but why not ? This one will be tricky for sure, and let's not forget they have to beat Australia first...

Dont think about Wawrinka, he can even rest his matches as he has 0 chanse against ferrero or Lopez. Federer would win his 2 matches, no question about it and in the doubles he and Allegro are really good on grass and they won Halle this year while Spain's doubles team is even bad on clay!

It cant end anything else than 3-2, if we dont see a miracle performance from someone in either team.

Prediction for the rest of the decade:
Federer winner: Usopen 05, 06, 07, 09 Aopen:06, 07, 10 Roland GArros:06, 08 Wimbledon:05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10 (Roddick always runner up)

Nadal winner: RG 07 Monfils winner: USopen 10

Roddick and Hewitt together winner of: 3 sidney, 4 Adelaide, 3 washington, 3 san jose, 3 indianapolis, 2 houston, 2 memphis, 5 queens and one master series title (where Safin, Agassi, Federer and Nadal happens to all be injured).

Re: Switzerland will win the davis cup next year!

I don't like a negaive talk but... don't you think your prediction goes too much?

Yes, Roger can beat anyone in the world on any surface(even Nadal on clay if he is on, I believe) so we can say that Swiss team guarantee 2 single wins. But a problem is that Switzerland has no reliable and consistent 2nd single player. Of course Wawrinka has showed a lot of advance this year but he beats the Spaniards or the Argentines on clay(or even on HC)? Hmmm... Then the key match will be a doubles rubber, which is almost like a lottery or russian roullete unless you don't have 2 double specialists in your team. Unfortunately Roger is not a specialist and Allegro himself can't guarantee a win, though they are good together. My point is, if Wawrinka can't win any singles, Roger and Yves must win the match, which however is unsure.

I think it's 50-50. Only if they have Roger AND are lucky, Switzerland has a chance to win DC.
