2009 Davis Cup

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.

Re: 2009 Davis Cup

I don't feel so great about Gilles being on the team atm, even less so considering the surface. Let's hope his eagerness for the Davis Cup, plus Forget by his side on the bench will help him to regroup his act together.


Le Poussin! Faithfully ignoring the haters since 1995.

Re: 2009 Davis Cup

Somebody said last time it is going to be USA-Switzerland.

French TV will show FRA-CZE on France 4 (Friday), France 2 (Saturday, so not so interesting for the Simon forum!) and France 3 (Sunday, only if the tie isn't over yet). Unfortunately I don't get France 4 here, does anybody know a livestream for it?

The tie has a page already so that bodes well (after the sad news about atdhe.net... )
Alternatively we can try this page of livestreaming Czech TV channels

Re: 2009 Davis Cup

Another interview before leaving Paris, he says he isn't worried, he felt he needed to take some time to practice and redefine a few things in his game during Dubai, but he couldn't do it because he had to play every day and he really was just getting by as best he could. But he thinks the week of training will do him good.
Then the usual stuff about why it is so different to play a team event and nice to forget about oneself for once, etc.
And at the end he's asked about the favourites for this tie, he says it's a tough one to call, but they are the 60-40 favourites. (They don't all say that, Gaël answered the Czech are the slight favourites in his opinion.)
