It really looks like it'll go down to Marchenko vs Ungur and under this circumnstances, indoor hard, in Ukraine... I don't like our chances tbh

I get the feeling Pavel hates Copil. If you make the decision of playing Ungur in singles (), why on earth aren't you playing Tecau/Copil in doubles in order to rest Hanescu before a match which might very well decide the rubber???... Pavel logic

Roger Federer | Nick Kyrgios | Nicolas Mahut | Richard Gasquet | Fabio Fognini | Flo Mayer | Jiri Vesely | Radu Albot

Fabrice Santoro | Andy Roddick | Nicolas Kiefer | Andrei Pavel

Yes i don't understand that decision either. It's true that after the tournament in Brisbane Copil had some disappointing loses but even so playing with Ungur instead of Copil on hard indoors makes no sense whatsoever

Ungur def. Stakhovsky 6-2 2-6 6-4 in October 2013, on indoor hard.
Ungur def. Copil 6-7 6-4 6-1 nine days ago, on indoor hard.
Stakhovsky def. Copil 6-4 6-4 in November 2013, on indoor hard.

Does it make sense now? Ungur is atm at least one class above Copil quality wise, and Marius is not in a great form either.

Also you have to be naive to believe Hanescu will play doubles tommorrow, I have no doubts that the pair will be Copil / Tecău.

Hai România!

Copil || Wawrinka || Ungur || Horia Tecău || Crivoi || Gulbis || Ciorcilă || Dolgopolov || Gombos || Hănescu || Fognini || Carreno-Busta || Dustin Brown || Olivetti || Andreozzi || Clezar || Gojowczyk || Kovalik || Duckworth || Tommy Haas || Arnaboldi || Sam Groth || Dodig || Semrajc || Dan Evans || Berankis || Bozoljac || Trevisan || Couacaud || Blaz Rola || Rosol

DISLIKE LIST: Nadal || Tomic || J.Sousa || Ferrer || Riba || Jimmy Wang || Brands || Granollers || Berdych || Robredo || Stakhovsky || Laaksonen || Veic || Bagnis || Stepanek || Janowicz || Lopez-Perez || Marchenko || Olivo || Fucsovics || Ignatik
