Re: Dc 2011

Has there been any rumours where the Germany vs. France tie will be played? Since I nowadays live in Berlin there is a chance that I could again see a French DC team in action (first and last time was in 1998 ).

Re: Dc 2011

When do they announce the surface of the court for the tie?

GRASS! In Halle! Seriously, much too early to know, it is in 4(!) months.

I actually wouldn't be suprised if it is on Grass.
Kohlschreiber, F.Mayer and Petzschner are all good on the surface and comfortable on it also most of the French players are also good on Grass so it would be intersting to see what the German's pick.

GRASS!

He sounds more fed up with former players and other people commenting on everything, and this time I fully agree with him.

That's how I understood it too. The part on the active players seemed more like an illustration of the difficulty of his job rather than a criticism of the players

I'd like to know their names, I'm not sure who he talks about.

Re: Dc 2011

According l'equipe Kohlshreiber wants clay and Mayer and Petzschner want grass. It should be in Stuggart, Halle or Hamburg.

I perfectly understand their division, but the Frenchies can be excellent on grass too, so from a German point of view, I'd chose clay.
