Davis Cup 2006

I remember that someone posted that Germany got a tough draw for the Davis Cup and did they ever! Germany and France have met 7 times with France holding a 4-2 lead in the series. The last time Germany won was in 1938!
France recorded a 5-0 victory in the last meeting in 1996 in France. The two teams will meet this year in Germany and the Tie will be played on 2/10/06 - 2/12/06. The German Team will consist of Nicolas Kiefer, Rainer Schuettler, Alexander Waske and Tommy Haas. The German Team Captain is Patrik Kuhnen. The French Team will consist of Richard Gasquet, Arnaud Clement, Sebastien Grosjean, and Michael Llodra. The French Team Captain is Guy Forget. (Note: Information is from the Davis Cup Site).

Re: Davis Cup 2006

See, you're finding your way to all of the good tennis sites . I hadn't even thought about the Davis Cup tie yet, so I'm glad you started the thread. I have to admit, I don't know which team to cheer for. Tommy is my favorite in that entire group, but I also like Gasquet and Grosjean. Wish they didn't have to play in the first round, but I hope Tommy wins his matches no matter who he plays.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Davis Cup 2006

It will be a tough Tie for sure. Gasquet and Seb are the French players I know. And they are both good IMO. But
I hope Tommy can win his matches

Oh no to win something like that and then maybe not be able to use it But Tommy doesn't play the doubles, does he? I don't know exactly how the German Team is set up the way I know how the American Team is set up. The U.S. will have Andy and James playing the singles while the Bryans play doubles. If anyone knows how Germany's
Team is set up, please post. Maybe the Davis Cup site will give me some information also.

Re: Davis Cup 2006

OOOOPS sorry, but I just now noticed that a Davis Cup thread had already been started. I don't know how I missed it? This has not been a good week I don't know where Delray Beach is and then I do a double Thread! I'm sorry this just hasn't been a good week for me! Except for the fact that Tommy is winning his matches at Delray

Re: Davis Cup 2006

Haas will play the doubles with Waske. They have won all their 3 matches in DC and I don't think they will change that team.

Re: Davis Cup 2006

I have 100% feeling Germany win by any way!
Haas strong as ever, always good in Davis Cup and points for Germany
and I have seen Kiefer at Austrlain Open, he looked very good like I never see him before and beat Grosjean in difficult conditions with his back to wall in a fight showdown of 290 mintues in midday heat
now Grosjean at front of German crowd where he cant play his bad and poor antics with crowd like with Nadal at home in Roland Garros, advantage Kiefer if he does not think too much about the match (has more problems in Davis Cup than Tommy)
both Tommy and Kiefer beat one of his opponents in Austrlia
I hope Alex Waske good for Davis Cup double
current, I rate Grosjean stronger, but Gasquet can be better after time playing. When Tommy has beaten him in Austrlia, he was under his normal level. He could come back to better level for Davis Cup, so it is not easy. Tommy must beware, but will fight the win I believe!
Tommy will slap Grosjean also
always comfort wins for him in past three matches

Albert Costa forever +++ Tommy Haas +++ Ivo Karlovic +++ Peter Luczak


RAFA owns Fedclown ~~~ H2H record 14-7 -- ~~~ 3 different GS finals included
Byebye Fedjerk, your dominance period is over! Nadal will win like 10 more Slams!



Zero tolerance against dopers!

Re: Davis Cup 2006

Thanks Jogy and JMG for your information on the German
Team I really didn't know that Tommy played Davis Cup Doubles, but of course here in the U.S. the only thing we see is the U.S. play. If we even get to see that! The tennis coverage in the U.S. is getting less and less

Re: Davis Cup 2006

Thank you for posting the matches. I don't know who the Germans consider to be the #1 player on their team for sure, but my guess would be Kiefer or Kiwi as they call him. He is their highest ranked player, I believe, so if they follow what the U.S. does our highest ranked player is consider the #1 player so it may be the same with Germany, but I can't say for sure. I'm sure that some of the German posters can fill us in on how Germany does things. Note: As of 02/06/06 the ATP site shows Kiefer is ranked #12 while Tommy is ranked #29.

Cool Re: Davis Cup 2006

Sorry for asking this kind of stupid question. From the ranking,Kiwi is no.1 German player right now,Gasquet is no.1 Frenchman too,but based on the current form,it seems that Tommy and Seb are better than them,so I was so confused! You know,not like in Croatia,everyone knows Ivan is no.1 Croatian and 99% he is the only one to win singles matches! Anyway I like Tommy and want Germany to kill France 5-0, that proves they need Santoro and this is the best excuse to fire that irrational "crap"tain soon.
