Willy in Davis Cup no time for vodka until after the tie

The man deserves a seperate section for a special event and he has the potential to be a winning Davis Cup team.

Outstanding performance by Willy and gives Argentina a 2-0 lead.

Here is a short interview in English with the man.

http://www.daviscup.com/shared/media...C_7183_mp3.MP3

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Cañas agrees with me...

"It was my best match in Davis Cup, because of the performance and the difficulties of the tie"

Re: Willy in Davis Cup

Great video lau with Cañas and Koubek.

The TV woman said you look gay and Koubek says "What, you didn't know" and Cañas says "time has changed, he likes the strong guys now".

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Willy in Davis Cup stay away from those Swedish blondes and aquavit

Willy is in the team to play with the Swedes with del Potro, Nalbandian and Prieto.

He will have plenty of time for the ladies, but there is a big tie for them against the Swedes to win. Hope he can adjust to the surface quickly as he will need to.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Willy in Davis Cup stay away from those Swedish blondes and aquavit

I'm sure he'll do well there and of course he likes to represent his country, but I do think it's quite quickly after all those matches at the Miami tournament and with the clay season to come.

Re: Willy in Davis Cup stay away from those Swedish blondes and aquavit

Very nice article in Ole today
http://www.ole.clarin.com/notas/2007.../01393524.html

Willy practiced yesterday for 45 mins to try the court. He played with bandage on his leg. He said, it bothered a bit, but less then on monday. He also said that court was very fast.
Luli said they will know for sure if Will's gonna play today or tomorow.

Re: Willy in Davis Cup stay away from those Swedish blondes and aquavit

There's no confirmation of the team (I mean 1 and 2 single player) so far....but Willy's physical state isn't perfect yet...and there's some speculation about Del Potro playing the 2nd rubber....

Del Potro closer to playing (2nd rubber) than Cañas - Clarin (spanish)
