The "Slip-Sliding to Spain to Try Their Best" 2008 Davis Cup Thread!!

The 2008 draw was released today. The US is the #2 seed and drew Austria in the first round - we hosted them about 3 years ago so we have to go there. Surely it will be a tie on clay but we can do it Spain's in the US's half so assuming Spain gets that far we will prob lose to them in the Semis b/c it'd be an away tie

full draw: http://www.daviscup.com/news/newsart...rticleid=14369

witty title coming soon

This makes me even more stressed out about our beating Russia in the final this year because we have no chance of winning it next year.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

We can get past Austria and then Romania on the road or France at home; but, I think next year will end in the mire of Spanish dirt.

It could have been worse. But it definitely could have been better. Austria (probably on clay) shouldn't be too bad and though I'll probably jinx the team I don't think Andy'll have a problem. Or with Romania or France. It's that semi with probably Spain that will be bad.
