From the DC website:
After McEnroe stated that his preference would be for either a grass court or a fast indoor hard court, he discussed the Chilean team of Fernando Gonzalez and Nicolas Massu.
“Obviously, they have a couple of great players,” McEnroe said of Chile. “I’m just really happy with how our guys looked here.
OK, I'm going to get a little snarky here since I really can't stand Pat Mac (as some of you know
) I know the tie probably won't take place on the the same type of surface but I can't help but remember the 2004 Olympics where the Chilean team beat several of the US team on their way to gold and bronze. Let's see....there was Roddick going down to Fernando, and Dent and Fish losing to Nico...I know I know...Dent or Fish won't be there for this (has poor Mardy just fallen off the edge of the earth or what??
)but still, its a nice memory and I hope Pat Mac is crapping his pants right now.
There-snarkiness out of my system(for now
). This of course will be very different. I love James and like Andy and Andre-the most likely singles competitors I think (the Bryans creep me out) but of course I will want the Chileans to win-and they can. Not saying it will be easy, but it is definatly possible!
And I dearly hope it will work out for you to go Nicofan!!!! That would be so great-you there with your Chilean flag signed by your Nico!!!
