Yes, that is interesting. I wonder if this decision was partly because he was afraid of the media backlash if Llodra lost again.
I don't think there was a risk for a Llodra's defeat against Melzer on first day.
But now there's a risk of that kind if he takes Llodra for a fifth rubber to replace Chardy against Fischer or Koubek.
If he had taken Llodra at first match he would have been number 1 of the team and then he couldn't have played the 5th rubber : this time Forget can still make that risky choice ... imagine if Chardy is awful first day and Benneteau not fully healthy ? back to Llodra for a 5th rubber
Great for Jeremy I don't see the match but i was expecting too much from Melzer apparently It's in those cases we see we have many great players in france even with the 3 withdrawal and the crisis we'll be able to win the tie 3-0 like last year
6-0 for Gilles it should be fast . Poor Koubek he should have stayed in his DC retirement
