it will be a nice tie to see, i think it will be more difficult that what argentina thinks, but with an all-star team including 3 top tens as Coria,Nalbandian and gaudio, and a doubles expert as arnold my pic is 4-1 to argentina. ;)

Coria & Gaudio the singles, and Nalbandian & Cañas the doubles....

It will be official tomorrow, but I'm quite sure this is going to happen...

Great team!!!!!!!

This acc. to El Clarin:

El capitán del equipo argentino de Copa Davis, Alberto Mancini ya tiene los nombres del equipo. Y los dio a conocer esta noche: Guillermo Coria, Gastón Gaudio, David Nalbandian y Guillermo Cañas son los cuatro jugadores elegidos para enfrentar a República Checa, el mes próximo, en el Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis.

willie
02-16-2005, 03:16 AM
The names for argie team against Czech Rep. being held on march on Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis clay courts are:
Guillermo Coria(rank 5)
Gaston Gaudio(rank 8)
David Nalbandian(rank 10)
Guillermo Cañas(rank 12)

probably the singles are going to be played by Gaudio and Coria cuase the surface is clay and they are champion and runner of roland garros, while the doubles will be held by nalbandian and either coria or cañas.

Elwing
02-16-2005, 01:35 PM
Nalbandian and Cañas are playing the dobles and Coria and Gaudio the singles, at least that's what T/C Sports published at its website... I'm so excited!! we get the chance to see them play at home! and with a really great chance that this Incredible Team will make it this time!! we had been missing that cup for so long, it would be the cherry on top of the cake for argentinean tennis moment!!

jazz_girl
02-17-2005, 12:05 PM
Actually the only thing confirmed is that Cañas and Nalbandian will play the doubles, Mancini will evaluate them 10 days before the tie and will decide who plays the singles. Although, I highly doubt the will choose David or Willy over Coria or Gastón...
The news is that Stepanek won't be playing, the singlist will be Novak and Berdych, and the doubles Zib/Henry.

The team now is:

Guillermo Coria
David Nalbandian
Guillermo Cañas
Agustin Calleri

Calleri/Cañas will play doubles.

*Ljubica*
02-28-2005, 02:56 PM
I wonder why Clarin named Zib playing singles rubbers.

They said it was because he had done well in the clay court tournaments recently, while Berdych had played the hard court tourneys instead so Zib was more used to the surface. At the moment, it seems like David and Coria will be the two singles players - with David also down to play doubles with Cañas, - but after a few days training it's possible that the doubles partnership will be Cañas/Calleri instead. Their first day of training as a team will be today, Monday 28th.

official (after the drawing):
Friday
first turn: 11AM (local time) D.Nalbandian (ARG) vs J.Novak (CZE)
followed by: G.Coria (ARG) vs T.Berdych (CZE)
Saturday
after the inauguration: Nalbandian/Cañas (ARG) vs. (up to now) Hernych/Zib (CZE)
Sunday
first turn: 11AM (local time) G.Coria (ARG) vs J.Novak (CZE)
followed by: D.Nalbandian (ARG) vs. T,Berdych (CZE)
it's very probable that, on Sunday, Calleri replaces Nalbandian

I have to say that Czech Republic has little chance to win Argentina on clay court. But I wish Pavel Nedved would recover soon. It's hard to imagine what Juventus can do without Pavel.

Coria is always on form on clay. together with Gaudio they are the king of the clay on this moment. But Gaudio is injured for this clash. Although Argentina have very very good players for clay. Novak is not prepared for this surface. Berdych also.
Sure home win for Argentina, maybe 5-0 (if not they loose the doubles).

Jazz_Girl and a lot of David's fans were at the matches and Jazz has posted her reports in David's Forum. Of course she wanted Argentina to win - but if you want to come over and read them and see all her photos - you are more than welcome :)

Coria dishes out some punishment

Cant wait for the DC QF

Either Flip is going to have to find some of that old form really quickly, or I think it'll come down to a very tough doubles match to decide it

Even if Wayne still has the great form, and with a hopefully better suited grass court than the one for Austria, Its still very tough to see him beating the likes of Nalbandian, Coria etc
