Re: 2008 World Group Play Offs

It's going to be tough for whoever draws Switzerland, Serbia or Chile.

I'm surprised that Israel is seeded. I wonder if Federer will play the play-offs this time since it's an Olympic year.

Re: 2008 World Group Play Offs

Very interesting.

krystlel, I believe Roger said he would play in the playoff if Switzerland qualified, which they did, so I guess he'll play

Re: 2008 World Group Play Offs

the unseeded group of teams is better than the seeded

Croatia vs Serbia would be a cracking tie

Re: 2008 World Group Play Offs

If Ivo finds his form and Cilic improves a bit more we could win it. I think Mario can beat Nole.

Ljubo said he won't play. And I like him but I doubt he could help us, maybe in doubles. I think he'd have problems with Tipsarevic and no chance against Nole.

Stepanek left and came back. I think this team wouldn't have many chances... they'd need to beat Faker2 twice and win the doubles.

Re: 2008 World Group Play Offs

Fakervic over 5 sets is too difficult to beat. This Ancic, losing to Ferrero, isn't winning.

I'd be calling Ljuba Truba back now.

Re: 2008 World Group Play Offs

I hope we draw Serbia so you worship me
Mario is still not playing his best tennis, in a few months, with enough match practice he'll be in his top form beating Federer in Wimbledon and winning it

If Djokovic will actually care,and I think he DOES in Davis Cup,Ancic has absolutely no chance.Dont be stupid.

Fanboying at it's best.

Face it,we have about 0,01 % chance of winning against Serbia if Djokovic will be fit and play.Not to mention Tips can beat Cilic easily.
I would be surprised if we get more than 1 point.

And as for the other part of your post...
