Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

If Richie plays the Singles and he wins a rubber, he can gain 40 ranking points.

it is my personal suspicion, but maybe Llodra won't be an option, why otherwise would this happen?

They were supposed to do VTT this afternoon, it has been cancelled because mika has a little in the back and Richard personnal obligations. I assume that instead after or before Richard finished his obligations there was a little train in doubles to do something . http://www.rmc.fr/editorial/126460/l...n-vtt-annulee/ No way Mika can't be an option in doubles

Hmmm, interesting. Is this the most likely team? So Gilles and Gael will handle singles or will Richard do double duty.

If he is fit, of course not, but is he fully fit? That was my point.

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

All you in Europe are sleeping but if anyone happens to be awake I found this before I went to bed:

"‎David Nalbandian Sitio Oficial‎: La serie de Copa Davis entre Francia y Argentina comienza este viernes a las 8.30 hs de la Argentina, con TV en vivo por canal 13. David juega en el segundo turno frente a Gilles Simon."

Speaking Spanish worse than French, I THINK that means Simon is #2 singles and I suspect it will be Llodra/Clement for dubs and Richie would be the 5th man.

Guess the offical news will be out before I wake up.

Gael and Llodra for singles on Friday, Richard not on the team. Personally I am no DC-lover so I don't mind that much, I hope Richard does not take it badly, but if France loses, I will be all over Forget.

Re: Davis Cup 2009- ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

Will Richie still be there to cheer the French team or will he go to Metz to practise?

If I was in his place, I would not stay on. Being the fifth man twice in a year is a bit heavy. Play a round of golf or two, Richard, relax and win Metz! Singles and Doubles!

Edit: Richard being less unforgiving than me will probably put a good face on the matter.

I would really have rated Richard as being the form player, after Gael (but then i'm biased)
I guess the risk would be playing Richard against Nalbandian, otherwise I cannot think that any of the other Argies would be a threat. They are really missing Del Potro this time round.

I am also not a mad lover of DC, and I think Richard will probably support the team for the first couple of ties, and then head off to Metz. Wasn't it said previously that Richard is a very good support for the team without playing?
