I always post the DC news in the DC thread, but I don't know if everybody reads it:
DC 2009 : Play-Off--> Netherlands
Gilles is almost sure to be on the team on Thursday now because Gaël will arrive in Ostrava very late and he will have only one day training at the match venue, so it will most probably be Gilles-Jo-Richard-Mika.
But Forget can still pick Richard instead of Gilles on Friday, of course.
If Gilles plays, he will be number 1 of the team and he will play Berdych (he has a 2-1 record against him).
If Richard plays in singles on Friday, Jo would be number 1 and would play Berdych.
They started practicing in Ostrava yesterday, but no news yet about how everyboy is adjusting to the surface.
