Re: DAVIS CUP

Yes, but losing 2-3 last year shows that the French team was very close to winning! Ok, Federer will be a tough one to beat, but Grosjean will return for the next round, and Escudé will have recovered even better from his longtime injury! Plus, it seems Clément is back in form. Are there any other Swiss players apart from Federer???

Re: DAVIS CUP

Séb Grosjean ; Arnaud Clément ; Guillermo Coria; Marcos Baghdatis; Jo Jo Tsonga
Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick are arrogant pigs

Hmmm.... I know Marc Rosset, Michel Kratochvil and George Bastl, there. But, Switzerland doesn't have any top players except for Federer. So, probably, I think that France defeats Switzerland.

Sébastien Grosjean is my favorite.
I also like Tommy Haas and Arnaud Clément.

I'm so glad to my path crossed with yours.

Re: DAVIS CUP

Switzerland also have Yves Allegro and Stanislas Wawrinka but still, that's true Roger is a bit "alone".

Still, he has taken his team to the semis last year and the problem is, Seb vs Roger will be first match on Sunday. That means that even if it's 1all on Friday night, France better win the doubles to have a chance to beat the Swiss #2 again on Sunday's second match.

Of course it may turn out to be 2/0 on Friday for France or Seb will manage to beat Roger, you never know.

But we're not there yet. Let's wait to see who will be fit and what surface will be chosen. I think Arnaud would deserve to play though.

Re: DAVIS CUP

Surely there can be no question about Clément playing, taking into account his recent good form?

Re: DAVIS CUP

Let's hope that home advantage isn't all it's cracked up to be! But it seems a couple of the strong nations are already out: Russia and Australia! I don't care much for Russia, they beat Grosjean and the Frenchies in 2002, and Australia - well, sorry to say so, but as I really dislike both Hewitt and Mark P I find it impossible to support Australia in the DC! What to you think about France and USA in the final?

Re: DAVIS CUP

Oh, I was trying to be realistic! It's not that I would ever want the Americans in the final! LOL Not the way that I cringe whenever Roddick shows up on my tv! But okay, if it makes you feel better I'll put my money on Argentina or Spain! I love babyface Coria and Ferrero's quite all right as well...
