At least we get a chance of winning one of the dead rubbers then.

Sadly he can't, not after the draw has been made.

But if Bjorkman plays one of the dead rubbers, I actually think Mello or Saretta would beat him.

But if it's a dead rubber, I think the team can put another player to play?

They can't. The captain can't make replacements after the draw is made. Only the four players assigned can play, whether it's a live or a dead rubber. You never see more than 4 players representing a country.

Got it, you can replace the single player but must be the 4 players nominated when the draw was made.

Exactly. For example Meligeni could only replace Saretta with either Guga or Sa on Sunday.

You're correct. The rules are very loose for dead rubbers; in fact, there really aren't any rules. They can play best of three, substitute players after the deadline, and even agree to cancel the matches. Technically, they're supposed to take dead rubbers seriously, in case somebody tests negative down the line, but in practice, as long as the supervisor agrees, they don't go by the rules for live rubbers.

Edit: Actually, IIRC, best of three dead rubbers is now the norm; it's the cancellation that the supervisor has to approve.



C'mon, Lleyton!

yeah you're right we have no other players to play for Belarus...only Azarenka for FedCup according to Vova's practise i think that it doesn't matter///if belarus will play home he again beats such players like robredo, youznyi...players that he would never beat in other tournaments. ..
