Re: The Everything Davis Cup Thread (News, Articles, Live Scores)

probably Lleyton will not play in Davis Cup.

Q. Do you think the Davis Cup thing is getting a bit messy with you now saying you won't, don't want to talk to Pat till September?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, I'm not going to get into it anymore, you know. I don't have to worry about that. I've got – got a job to do here and in, you know, next week in Melbourne. And Pat and Bernie will work it out themselves.

Re: The Everything Davis Cup Thread (News, Articles, Live Scores)

TA had the upper hand when Bernie was not playing so crash-hot. They could dictate, suspend him, scold him.
Now Bernie is playing off-his-face, he had the upper-hand, is an asset to TA.
Power transfers to Bernie, he can dictate.
Interesting power play.
When Bernie is firmly settled in his pad in Monaco, then we might see some other developments...

Re: The Everything Davis Cup Thread (News, Articles, Live Scores)

I seriously cannot stand Guccione anymore, he doesn't deserve to be in the team one little bit. Yes Lleyton and him play decent doubles together but personally I think Duckworth has just as good serve as him if not better and the rest of his game is a lot better then Guccione's. If Australia put him in again they obviously don't want to get back into the main group.

Guccione has never lost a doubles match at David Cup level, so I cant see how picking him means Australia don't want to get back into the world group.

Re: The Everything Davis Cup Thread (News, Articles, Live Scores)

Paul Hanley is a better doubles player.

Guccione has never lost a doubles tie because he plays with Hewitt and he's been playing Chinese Taipei and Vietnamese teams for the most part.

Guccione - has not won a match, in singles or doubles since when.
They must have picked him on form...

Re: The Everything Davis Cup Thread (News, Articles, Live Scores)

Millman or Duckworth should be in the team. Saville should not, Guccione should not.
