Re: 2009 Davis Cup Cheering Thread: World Group First Round vs. Spain

Will be a tough one playing on clay vs the best team on that surface. Even with Nadal limping and Nando is out.

AJDE!!!

RAFA IS CHOSEN TO PLAY AT THE DAVIS CUP TIE AGAINST SERBIA

22nd of February

Rafa Nadal, David Ferrer, Tommy Robredo, Feliciano López and Nicolás Almagro (first reserve) have been chosen as the team that will represent Spain in the first round of the Davis Cup against Serbia from the 6th to the 8th of March in Benidorm.

The Spanish Armada is scheduled to travel to Beridorm on Sunday the 1st of March to start training at the stadium that has been put in place at the "Terra Mítica" park.


“I consider this team to be capable of winning”, was the statement that Albert Costa, the new Spanish Davis Cup Capitan gave at a press conference on Saturday after revealing the complete list of players that he’s chosen to play at next month’s tie.

Serbia is “a very difficult opponent that no-one wants to play in the first round. They are a very complete team, they have the number 3 player in the world, Novak Djokovic, then Janko Tipsarevic, a dangerous but equally irregular player; Nenad Zimonjic, best doubles player in the world at the moment; and Vicktor Troiki who is still in progress. Add to that the fact that they tend to get better when they represent their own country”, completed Costa.

The good news is that "we will have the courts available to us beforehand and therefore that will allow us to prepare ourselves in advance".

In regards to Rafa, he continues to be at home in Mallorca resting his knee, just like his doctor recommended. As usual, he is happy to be part of the Davis Cup team again and will do everything in his power to help his team win next month.

Vamos España!

Re: 2009 Davis Cup Cheering Thread: World Group First Round vs. Spain

I don't understand why Nole didn't throw himself into the South American swing of clay tournaments this year ahead of this tie. Or is he really not as into DC as he would like his rah-rah compatriots to believe?

Nole is a better hard court player than a clay court player. Also, the European hard court season is closer to home. He should not change his schedule just because this tie will play on clay.

And look at Nadal, even he's a better clay court player, he played the European hard court instead of SA clay court before this tie.

It's a tough situation. Though there are clay events, this part of the year is seen as the early hard court season. I think most people would think he was crazy if he had played the clay swing since the "heavy hitters" of the tour are playing on hard and his best results are on hard. If you look at the teams, only Robredo and Almagro, who's an alternate, have been playing on clay. It sucks that he has to go from hard to clay to hard so fast. But, Nole is a good clay court player and I don't think he should have changed his entire schedule to fit one weekend. Hopefully, the practice during the week will make the transition easier.

Nole is no slouch on clay. What he needs is sufficient match practice on the surface, without which he might as well recuse himself from the tie instead of worsening his h2h record against Nadal.

You do know that the Spaniard has a claycourt in his own backyard, right? I mean, literally "own backyard", not just "round the corner at the local tennis club" backyard.

Re: 2009 Davis Cup Cheering Thread: World Group First Round vs. Spain

Oh, also Venus is playing in South America after Dubai...think it's cos she's serious about finally filling that gap in her GS resume. Really, who cares what the other top players are doing if you have your own holy grail to pursue?

The problem with countering Nadal on clay is he, again literally, grew up on the dirt. But Nole going in "cold" on the surface while Nadal has had all this "recuperative" time to "get used to" a court that he already feels completely at home on, hah, literally, is a mistake of lamb-to-slaughter proportions.

Do excuse my excessive use of the word. Been watching too much Jaime Oliver, I guess. (Slaps self silly.)

Re: 2009 Davis Cup Cheering Thread: World Group First Round vs. Spain

This sounds selfish, but to me his own career is much more important than DC or something.
(except Olympics which is a more rare, short-term, international sporting event)
Even any other Serb player doesn't play on clay for DC, then why Nole has to do?
And I'm too skeptical to want to mess up his schedule for it.

Anyway I expect he shows extraordinary and passionate performance in the toughest situation.
Impossible is Nothing.

Sky were due to show USA-Switzerland. Assume they still will, Roger being out notwithstanding.
