At first I was bummed, but the more I think about it, I agree. I think they would love the title back, but I think they have other goals. Fernando is tired, but I think if he takes out some of the big boys here, it will give him a lot of confidence for RG. Nico desperately needs to get his confidence back before RG.
Although to be honest, I would rather see Fernando rest a bit and go to RG early, and I'd rather see Nico in Austria getting much needed points to get seeded for Wimbledon, but this is what they chose to do, so they should make the most out of it while they are there.
And of course, it would be nice to get a little revenge along the way against the Americans.
But I'm more interested in seeing how Nico stacks up against Ancic and Verdasco (I think Espana will be the toughest of all the teams though if they get to the finals Argentina will be extraordinarily tough - and I'll be shocked if it isn't Argentina that gets to the finals from that group). Ditto Fer against Ivan and David .
