Re: ~Davis Cup 2006~

I now fear the worst for this considering today's situation...
But i like Germany's team a lot anyway so...
May the best team win and we see good tennis, fair-play and all that (bla bla bla...)!

Allons Delsa! Ils n'ont pas encore perdu...

All I can say is that Guy Forget will have some headaches to choose the next DC team.

Re: ~Davis Cup 2006~

Probably Seb, Paulo, Fab and Micka. Unless Richard gets back into form in time.

Definitely
Fab, Séb, Richard, Gael, Paulo are all contenders and they're already 5!
Plus among these only Fab is good at doubles, which means one between Mika and Arnaud has to be picked.
That makes 7 contenders (even 8 if we consider Florent as one)...
At least Guy Forget has the choice but this may turn out to be real headache!

Re: ~Davis Cup 2006~

I don't think there's a better combination than Fab and Micka in doubles.

The reactions of Forget after Richard's loss have been sent in a thread...don't remember which one though. He wasn't really pessimistic regarding Richard. For sure Richard will be in the team.

I agree Micka and Santoro deserve to play the double.
Seb leads 4-3 in the head to head against Haas and 3-2 against Kiefer, so the team will need him.

Then, Forget will have to choose between Gael and Paulo for the 5th man.

Yeah. I've read them. He does mention that Richard needs to get some confidence back though. What I meant was that he might choose Richard but not let him play.

It's a tough choice between Paulo and Gael. Paulo has the DC experience but Gael has been playing well (except for the AO). Maybe it'll come down to how they fare during the next few weeks.

Re: ~Davis Cup 2006~

Forget admited it was not good for gael, this australian open, because a match of davis cup is much more pression for a player than a first round of grand slam ! It sounds pessimistic for him.
Anyway I want Paulo to play

Re: ~Davis Cup 2006~

You'd think Seb, Paulo, Fabrice and Mika wouldnt you??

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

Paulo's head to head against Haas is 2-0 Both on hard courts. So, i think he gets a slight advantage over Gael to be in the team.

Was it useful that i posted the H2H?
I thought it looked like i was very bored...

I think the team could be Grosjean, PHM, Santoro, Llodra, Gasquet/Gaël (one of the youngsters won't make the trip to Halle...).

Your posts are always useful, Delsa

I think Forget will more hesitate to make a choice between Paulo and Gael than between Gael and Richard.

Richard is the french number one and the only one in the top 20 so... it would make more sense
