Russia hasn't won yet, Chile at home is a very bad draw for them!

But France-Chile would take place in Chile too, so the 2nd round is tough in any case.

Russia! That's the destiny!

Well, that's really better to have Romania in the first round rather than Chile, just hope they won't be too relaxed looking for an easy victory. That's DC where everything can happen.

Re: 2007 Davis Cup: Draw Released!

Russia again in the second round

These draws are really discouraging. I guess France would have better chances against Chile... Anyway, they will have to beat Romania first and I really don't know which players will be chosen in the team apart from Gasquet and the double players.

If it's on clay (which will probably the case), Russia will play Davydenko and Safin (who may be inconsistent but has always fought hard during DC) while Chile will play Gonzalez and Massu. If none of them get injured or have a severe change in form next year, I still see Russia winning.

They should pick grass, IMO. Pavel is Romania's key player and he has had successes mainly on clay and indoors. If it's on grass, I guess it'll be Seb and Richard (unless he has a 2005-like start to the year ).

Re: 2007 Davis Cup: Draw Released!

The sad thing is we don't have any grass courts in France... Otherwise it would have been helpful against the Russians this year.

Forget's interview: ''On n’est pas mal lotis !''
http://www.fft.fr/filinfos/default.asp?ID=2058
"A priori, je dirais qu’il faudrait plutôt choisir une surface un peu rapide. Mais je ne veux pas trop m’engager."
He would choose a "rather quick surface" for the first round.

But they can't pick grass since it has to be indoors (<- that's from me, not from Forget)

Re: 2007 Davis Cup: Draw Released!

Why? Haven't they learnt from this year's DC? They need to build grass courts.

Re: 2007 Davis Cup: Draw Released!

I never want to see Paulo has anything to do with Russia whatsoever!


If it's Russia, definately not going to be good for his mental health and the whole team!

If Paulo keeps up with his current form, I don't think he even needs to worry about being picked against Russia if they win their first round tie.
