you are right. In fact, I like not only Marat and Richard, Russia and France are my favourite teams as a whole. May the winner go on and win the whole thing.

I don't like anyone else on the Russian team.

It's weird. Marat and Sveta are the only Russians I like. As for the rest...

Yeah. I quite like her as well. She fought really hard against Hingis at IW but was too one-dimensional in the end. to her fighting spirit though.

Pressure is on Gasquet in Davis Cup tie, says Safin

PAU, France, April 6 (Reuters) - Russia's Marat Safin says France's number one Richard Gasquet is the one under pressure going into their Davis Cup quarter-final tie.

Former world number one Safin, who returned from a seven-month injury layoff in February, has dropped to 50th in the ATP rankings while teenager Gasquet has moved up to 16th.

"I'm not sure Marat is serene about playing against Richard," France captain Guy Forget told reporters after Safin was drawn to play 19-year-old Gasquet in Friday's first singles rubber.

"I don't know why I would not be serene,"
Safin replied.

"I've beaten him twice already. He is the one to be nervous, I'm not. And I'm more experienced than he is," the 2005 Australian Open champion added.

In 2002, Safin beat Gasquet 6-4 6-1 in the Monte Carlo Masters Series' second round and knocked him out 6-4 7-6 in the first round in Lyon.

Safin, who has not played Davis Cup since 2005's first round, said he was even "ready to play three games" against France.

The Russians beat France 3-2 in a memorable 2002 final in Paris to win their first Davis Cup title and defeated them again by the same score in last year's quarter-finals in Moscow.

France have won the four Davis Cup ties they have played in Pau. This weekend's tie will be played indoors on a quick surface.

Gasquet in his audio interview also said that Safin will have the pressure.
"You will have the pressure!"
"No, I won't! But you will!"
"No..."
