We last won Davis Cup in 2003. We made the SF in 2006 and have been playing zonals and playoffs since then. The fact that he's making himself available each year to play 2 matches China, Thailand or Chinese Taipei or whatever in recent years is really nothing to be continuously rewarded for. I recognize he's one of our best Davis Cup players ever, but a clay GS WC at this stage of his career after no match play is beyond stupid, especially when there are other legitimate players worthy of the WC (for once!) in Matosevic and maybe Duckworth. Especially Matosevic.
Lleyton will get into quallies. If he's still serious about coming back I thought he'd rather do it there where he doesn't have the chance to draw Federer, Nadal, Djokovic in R1.
