For the first time, I'm rather confused by Lloyd's selection. WTF is Boggo doing there?
The guy is unfit, low on confidence, a poor Davis Cup singles player, doesn't have the consistency on his groundstrokes to compete in long rallies, and sucks at doubles. What possible use is he going to be? It seems that Lloyd has gone for 3 singles player and a doubles player...a wise choice should one of our singles players pull up injured, but given how low our chances are anyway, we should be gambling. We HAVE to win the doubles, and we'd have been better placed having Hutchins partnering Jamie Murray (if only Auckland could change receiving sides)...fairly good service return; good serve; okay from the back; useful volleyer.
As for Argentina...Nalbandian, Monaco and Calleri are logical picks, given their strength in singles...but Chucho? Sure, he is a useful singles player, but I doubt he will be chosen for live singles action? Why didn't you guys pick just one of two doubles specialists? Calleri or Nalbandian could have made a useful partnership with him. Chucho / Nalbandian or Calleri would still be more than a match for the GBR pairing, but I'm still a little surprised by the selection there.
As for the tie outcome...GBR aren't out of it. I mean, it is possible
that Muzza wins two singles and we scratch out a doubles victory. However, Argentina are most likely to win, and Muzza is unproven on clay so I'd have him as the underdog against Bandy and Monaco.
