Juan wants the salad bowl!!! 2008 Davis Cup Thread

Yes, it's too early... so what?

I'm anxious.

Davis Cup Semifinal
Argentina vs. Russia


Estadio Parque Roca, Buenos Aires
Stadium Capacity: 14097
19 September - 21 September 2008
Surface: Clay (Red Clay) - Outdoors

Heah to Head
Russia leads 3 - 1


Argentine team

Nalbandian, David (7°)
Del Potro, Juan Martín (17°)
Calleri, Agustín (49°)
Cañas, Guillermo (53°)

------------------------------------------

Russian team

Davydenko, Nikolay (5°)
Andreev, Igor (23°)
Tursunov, Dmitry (27°)
Kunitsyn, Igor (72°)




Juan Martin's Davis Cup record: 2 - 1

2007 Quarterfinal, in Sweden, on Carpet.
Rubber 2 - L Robin SODERLING 6-7(4) 6-7(4) 4-6
Rubber 5 - W Robert LINDSTEDT 7-6(7) 6-4


2007 First Round, in Austria, on Carpet.
Rubber 4 - W Jurgen MELZER 7-6(4) 3-6 6-4 4-6 6-2



Juan Martín will be the second singles player for the Argentine Team and will play against Davydenko on Friday.

Previous encounters: 2007 AMS Paris, Davydenko won 7-6(3) 6-1 (on hard, R32)

------------------------------------------

Del Potro will surely not play the doubles and if he does well in the first day is probable he will play the fifth rubber, which could easily be the decisive match of the tie.


Will he be able to handle the pressure and step up to the expectations generated in the last 2 months?

He will play at home for the first time, in a semifinal with 14000 loud Argentine fans cheering for him...


I can't wait.

Vamos Juan!!!!

Franco Davin - "Juan likes to play with people (meaning with fans in the stands), the cheering will make him grow. The nervousness exists, but we have been working on that for some months now"

The photo showing David joking with Juan Martin has brought a smile to my face. They both look so relaxed.

Thanks, Hendu.

Re: Juan wants the salad bowl!!! Argentina vs. Russia <> Davis Cup Semis

Juan is Dreaming with the davis cup and he can imagine he's first match in home vs Davydenko



http://www.lanacion.com.ar/nota.asp?nota_id=1049565 - Excelente note in La nacion! =)






And also a great note in OLE =P


23:54 | COPA DAVIS: ENTREVISTA CON JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO
"Cuando me voy a dormir, aparece Davydenko"
Delpo ya imagina su debut como local en la Copa: "Es el sueño de cualquier chico. Espero no defraudar". Además, habla de... ¡su debut actoral!



http://www.ole.clarin.com/notas/2008.../01759486.html


Juan will we in an argie tv program for teenagers called "Casi Angeles"

"We recorded the other day it was funny. Unfortunately there is not any girl I played with were all boys "
"The good news is that we did not shoot that many shots. That speaks well of me. What I say?, you need to watch it," retruca. "It was short but well spent. Who say... "
