Davis cup Relegation in September

I have listed the potential opponents for sweden:

Netherlands, at home,beatable at home

Chile, at home, also beatable on a carpet at home

Brazil,at home,easy win

Ecuador, away, difficult and very tricky, clay court in south america

Japan, at home, easy win OR Uzbekistan, by lot, but also easy win

Italy, at home,difficult, cause italy has more talent, but with Söderling, sweden should win

Belarus, at home,easy win OR South Africa, away, difficult, but not impossible

Ukraine, by lot, but beatable

So, only at Ecuador, maybe at South Africa and vs Italy it will be difficult. But all depends on,if we have a fit team, with Söderling,Lindstedt,Aspelin and Johansson.

Allways Good luck to:

Joachim Johansson * Andreas Vinciguerra* Jonas Björkman* ToJo* Robin Söderling* Oliver Rochus* Christope Rochus* Jarkko Nieminen* Fernando Gonzalez* Feliciano Lopez*Igor Andreev*Catalin Gard*Kristof Vliegen*Kristian Pless*Kenneth Carlsen*Juan Ignacio Chela*Steve Darcis*Kevin Anderson*Henri Kontinen*Henri Laaksonen*Daniel Berta*Rik de Voest*Niels Desein*Fernando Verdasco*Arthur de Greef*'David Goffin*Yannik Reuter*Erling Tveit*Devin Britton*Micke Kontinen*Christian Lindell*Erling Tveit*Robbye Poole*Henri Laaksonen*

Re: Davis cup Relegation in September

Thanks for that. I hope we get an easy draw and that Söderling is fit.

I feared a much more tougher draw...but this looks good i think. Nothing is won, and we need Robin for sure, but with him...it should be all done.

Re: Davis cup Relegation in September

I agree with you, if Söderling is fit we should be able to make it (I hope )

Re: Davis cup Relegation in September

There is a bit of a feud between PimPim and the DC captains right now. Not exactly what the team needs, but here goes...

Program for the tie Sweden - Romania:

Friday: Vinciguerra - Hanescu, Söderling - Crivoi

Saturday: Lindstedt/Aspelin - Copil/Tecau

Sunday: Söderling - Hanescu, Vinciguerra - Crivoi

Re: Davis cup Relegation in September

I'm curious on how the thoughts went regarding this slow HC in use. Sure, it suits Vinc, but it should suit Hanescu and Crivoi as well.

Oh well. Söderling should be able to hit through the court anyway.

Re: Davis cup Relegation in September

1-1 after the first day.

Hanescu b. Vinci 7/6(5) 7/6(10) Ret.

Söderling b. Crivoi 6/2 6/1 7/5

Robin looked mighty confident as he blew Crivoi off the court for almost the entire match, but he got a little carried away in the third as relaxed too much, and Crivoi broke him twice, the second time when Robin was serving for the match at 5/4. Still, impressive that Robin didn't let that get to his head and broke again and served it out.

Andreas played really well and was pumped up, but lacked the edge in the breakers, despite having lots of chances in the second one. Then he twisted his right ankle during the first game of the third set and was in a lot of pain. I hope he's good to go for Sunday, cause we don't have any great alternates.

Re: Davis cup Relegation in September

Wilander said it was decided this morning to let Robin start, as he has been looking so impressive and confident as of late. It's paying off well so far with the first set in the bag 6/1. Also, Romania is playing with Hanescu instead of Copil.

The key here is that Robin can't get too relaxed as he often does when things are going so easy. I'd be surprised if the Romanians won't raise their level, and I'm sure Wilander has pressed on that.

Re: Davis cup Relegation in September

If SWE wins the doubles Robin will do the job tomorrow. Hopefully Robin and Robert win.
