I think Spain has 16 or 17 and about the same amount of doubs players. It shows so much depth when like Monfils doens't make it on to your final squad and Almagro doesn't make it onto a clay side for Spain.

By contrast Andy Murray is a one man squad. We have 1 singles player and 2 doubs players in the top 100

France should certainly win a Davis cup if not this year then soon. I also think realistically even with Nadal around you should have a french slam winner soon.
He might be but at least,you can be 100%(or 99,99) sure that he'll win a GS in the future.
The same can't be said of any of the top french players(and yes,that includes Tsonga).

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

I'm one of Andy's biggest fans Richie21 but even I wouldn't be arrogant enough to assume he'll win a GS because at the end of the day anything can happen on any given day on a tennis court ... I would reckon Jo and Gael (if Jo can stay clear of injuries and Gael can play well consistently) would have just as good a chance as Andy to win a Slam

MURRAY - the World No. 2

Simon Monfils Gasquet

Yes, if only Gael and Jo could be injury free and start posting some more consistent results.

Don't know where to put this, but the draw for the 2010 WG has been released and France is in the top half, playing away in Germany. Allez.

Richard has been called for the team, that doesn't necessarily mean he will play. I feel a lot will depend on how the next few days will go. Apparently, Gilles is making a case for himself (See DC-thread).

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

According to http://www.welovetennis.fr/coupe-dav...l-entrainement Richard won a practise set against Gael 7-6 (1) and lead 5-3 in the second before they had to stop when the Argies arrived.

Gael had him right where he wanted - Richard up a set and a break .

Wonder who will actually play. I'm most curious about the doubles. Monfils and Simon are out, that leaves just Richie (who didn't seem to work too well with Llodra) or Arno. What's the rule about naming the doubles team? Can they replace a player after they name the doubles team? and if they do is that the only replacement they can make?

Yes, you can change the Doubles team before the rubber starts.

You can call up a player who was not selected to take part in a rubber to replace the person who originally named.

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

This shouldn't even be a debate. Clement and Llodra should play together. I mean, they've won a grand slam together and were one of only two teams to beat the Bryans for heaven's sake!
