With all due respect to Belarus, cuz they're on a great run, they won't make it to the final. So really, the Davis Cup comes down to the Yanks, the French, and the Spanish armada. The Yanks caught a huge break when Belarus upset injury riddled Argentina. Nalbandian and Coria are tough customers on all surfaces. Do you guys agree that everyone besides Andy Roddick is playing their way out of the No. 2 Davis Cup spot? Fish cant beat the Ivo Karlovics, Cyril Saulniers, and Gregory Carraz's of the world. Dent is struggling with confidence ever since the disastrous loss to Roddick in Australia. Spadea is struggling with injuries. Blake is struggling. Ginepri is the best bet. Does the U.S. get to play at home if they make the final. On clay, the U.S. doesn't stand a chance. Roddick won't be able to win 2 rubbers.
I personally think it will be a Spain v USA final in Madrid on clay, in which case the Spaniards would more than likely clean up. They have a tough semi against France but I think they'll get through it given the fact that it's on their favourite surface and they're at home...and whether Juanqui plays or not doesn't really matter because they have enough depth to get them through...Moya and Nadal or Moya and Robredo would be the obvious singles options
When does the Spanish team get named? There has been a lot of speculation over who is in the team...while I am sure it will the obvious...I am hoping there will be an unlikely inclusion However...I am preparing for shattered hopes.
In any case....VAMOS ESPAÑA!
Fernando Verdasco | Paul-Henri Mathieu | Richard Gasquet
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga | Marat Safin | Juan Carlos Ferrero | Carlos Moya | David Nalbandian | Mathieu Montcourt | Nicolas Mahut
"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".
I can't see USA winning when the final is played on clay, which is surely where it'll be played even if France do beat Spain.
if France and States make it through the final will take place in the USA and i do not see the Team Usa wanting play their final on clay.
There an only be One Nadal
Nadal, Roddick, Tsonga, Del Potro & Safin
Pele was the black Rooney
