World Group Semifinal: U.S.A. at Sweden (September 21-23, 2007)

The venue will be Scandinavium, Göteborg, where the US lost the famous(at least in Sweden) 1984 final, the 1994 SF and the 1997 final. Actually that's all of Sweden's wins against the Americans.

The surface will be the same as against Belarus and Argentina, fast indoor carpet.

Don't worry about coming to Sweden. We have beef jerky in our stores now, so you will feel at home.

Re: SF: Sweden vs. USA

who's going to play this Tie for Sweden??

I think: Robin Soderling with Thomas Johansson for singles... leaving Bjorkman/Aspelin for doubles
I wish that Joachim Johansson could play that match.. what a scary player to face with, specially on fast acrylic courts

Re: SF: Sweden vs. USA

Swden will regret not playing on clay. All americans lost in first round. Also sweden beat U.S. on clay in world cup team.

Life is empty and meaningless. It is in emptiness that we create possibilities for extraordinary results

Re: SF: Sweden vs. USA

Thing is: take Soderling out and the Swedes have no decent second player on clay. The fast carpet is still probably the best surface for them.

Re: SF: Sweden vs. USA

Believe me I think anyone can defeat the U.S. on clay. If I had to pick a surface against the U.S., I would go with clay everytime. May be if they had to play on it more they could learn to win some Matches That being said go U.S.A.
