6 in top-100

This week Russia has 7 players in top-100:
Davydenko - 6
Andreev - 29
Tursunov - 33
Youzhny - 50
Kunitsyn - 91
Safin - 97
Gabashvili - 99

... and Korolev - 115

Of course this is not same thing as about girls - 6 in top-15 and 17 in top-100, but now we have several variants for squad for every surface (except grass).
Not bad

Safin*Youzhny*Davydenko*Andreev*
Gabashvili*Tursunov*Kunitsyn


E. KOROLEV

Re: RUSSIAN Davis Cup team

No, Igor just didn't have good results in February-August-2005 (except Valencia of course), so it's his natural rating I think. But in autumn he has lot of points to protect...

This won't do Russia any good if the guys won't get 3 wins vs USA in September. I can sooo feel it will extremely stressful for me again.
Kolya - doesn't look too good right now but hopefully good enough to win 2 Americans, Igor - out, Mitya - not for clay, Marat - only God knows, Misha - CAN he be the savour and win the DC once again?

Re: RUSSIAN Davis Cup team

Misha finally won two matches in a row in clay in Kitzbuehel, so who knows I sincerely hope Kolya snaps out of it and Marat despite horrifying results in individual tournaments has NEVER let us down in a DC tie

Marat Safin
Kolya Davydenko
Misha Youzhny
Igor Andreev
Mitya Torsonoff
Zhenya Korolev

Re: RUSSIAN Davis Cup team

What do you guys think for next month? Right now I'd guess Davydenko and Safin for the singles, Dmitry and Youzhny for the doubles. Who knows? It'd be disappointing to lose in Russia, on red clay to the US.

Re: RUSSIAN Davis Cup team

So you think no Safin for singles? I was thinking Safin and Davydenko for starters on Friday. Marat mainly because of his history and past success in Davis Cup, and Davydenko for his clay court prowess. Then if either one gets hurt or doesn't perform well, you could always throw Dmitry or Youzhny as a substitute on Sunday.

There are so many options. Korolev could even be in the mix.
