Re: Playoff: Czech Republic vs Germany

Now the Czech team has announced their team. IMO Berdych has to win both his singles to give his team a chance. Even Kiefer showed he can beat good clay courters like Andreev in big matches, I'm confident we can celebrate a victory this time.

We expect Haas and Kiefer in singles and probably Waske/Haas in doubles.

Why Stepanek and Mayer out?

It looks like Stepanek has a dispute with captain Cyril Suk - and Mayer is only no.5 in the German team, because the captain thought that Schuettler is the better choice. So there's no special reason for that.

Stepanek has earlier said that he wants to concentrate on his rankings this year and then there was a little tiff or something like that and I think if Jiri and Tomas will play it is better for us, recover soon Jiri

Re: Playoff: Czech Republic vs Germany

Will Schuettler play singles or only doubles (or none)? I would choose the third option.

Probably the third option. I think he's in the team to be singles player no.3.

This is the same German team that won WTC on clay this year.

Re: Playoff: Czech Republic vs Germany

That sucks for the Czech's, Stepanek is their best player. Kiefer should be a winner for his two matches if he's focused and I really don't know about Tommy on clay. If Rainer Schuettler played like he did in 2003 he would annhiliate Novak and Berdych.

Re: Playoff: Czech Republic vs Germany

The Czech team changed a bit. Looks like Leos Friedl is in the team instead of Novak.

Czech Republic - Germany
T.Berdych - T.Haas
T.Zib - N.Kiefer
L.Friedl/F.Cermak - T.Haas/A.Waske
T.Berdych - N.Kiefer
T.Zib - T.Haas

Re: Playoff: Czech Republic vs Germany

When Haas plays a long first match, we probably won't see Kiefer in full length then (only if he plays a quick match). I'm sure DSF will go to the basketball EURO then later (which is not toooo bad because I also want to see it)

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy
