Who should Pat Mac pick for second singles?

It's simple... Ginepri or Blake? Who's it to be?

Re: Who should Pat Mac pick for second singles?

probably blake, but ginepri would be better on clay i think (although they both have sucked on clay and i doubt they will have a chance against belgium)

Personally, I think Blake has the better game for clay... Ginepri's backhand would be too exposed.

Re: Who should Pat Mac pick for second singles?

I don't fancy either Blake or Ginepri's chances vs Olivier and Cristophe. Andy and the Twins will have to be at their best to pull out victory.

Re: Who should Pat Mac pick for second singles?

Blake was nominated for US team, but that could be changed until an hour before the draw.
The Rochus brothers are joined by Vliegen and Darcis on Belgium team.

Re: Who should Pat Mac pick for second singles?

Blake's clay record is comparatively WAY better than Ginepri's. At least James has won ONE best-of-5 match on clay before

Re: Who should Pat Mac pick for second singles?

Gah, they could do a match to decide, or use a coin (head or tales). Anyway, if I were the capitain, Blake is my choice
(I am still waiting for a day when a singles player gets injured and a Bryan needs to play singles)

McEnroe said he's not going to say for sure until the day before... I guess he wants to watch them practise on the dirt first

Well, that's certainly understandable

Bob won the NCAA Singles Title when he was at Stanford in addition to winning the NCAA doubles title with his brother the same year.
