Re: Davis Cup

Now even Denmark is promoted to Group II, that means another unbeatable opponent for next year. I don't think Finland will be seeded this time and we have to hope that some players won't play, like Pless/Carlsen, Mazarakis/Economidis, who didn't play this year. I hope Jarkko will find the motivation to go to Nigeria, if the draw is like that. The only must-wins for the first round would be Norway, Morocco, Nigeria, Monaco and Estonia I guess.

Ukraine (Dolgopolov, Stakhovsky, Tereshchuk)
Poland (Kubot, Przysiezny, Fyrstenberg/Matkowski)
Greece
Denmark (Carlsen, Pless, Nielsen)
Slovenia
Algeria
Bulgaria
Hungary
Norway
Morocco
Cyprus (Baghdatis, Kallias)
Latvia (Gulbis, Pavlovs)
Nigeria
Monaco
Estonia

EDIT

Home: Morocco, Norway, Nigeria
50/50: Ukraine, Latvia, Monaco
Away: Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria, Algeria, Greece, Slovenia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia

But at least not in Nigeria.

Re: Davis Cup

Greece, Denmark and Cyprus are all unseeded in tomorrow's draw. That means we could get a shocking draw today. And none of them would be at home.

Re: Davis Cup

First round

Cyprus - Finland

Basically, they have to win 2 matches of

T.Nieminen - Kallias
J.Nieminen - Baghdatis
The doubles

Timo defeated Kallias this year in straight sets. But I fear Cyprus is one of the toughest countries to play. You know how Baghdatis' fans behaved in Australia and now imagine how it is when a couple of thousand fans are there to support him.

Finland might even go down to Group III, because the play-downs would be against Latvia or Bulgaria, also not more than 50/50 ties.

Re: Davis Cup

I think this is great, it's been a long time since we get to play against someone in the top 10 in DC! I really hope YLE will seize the moment and buy the rights to show this tie. I'd love to see Jarkko play against Marcos.

Actually it almost looks like the Group II is better than the Group I next year. Weird.

Re: Davis Cup

Actually, Poland, Denmark, Greece and Ukraine are in the other half. So if Finland wins against Cyprus, they have a good draw. Just the first round is a bit unlucky.
