Slovak Republic vs. The Netherlands

I'm not really surprised that this is the only DC quarterfinal not to have its own thread. Not many Slovakian posters and my compratiots are more supportive of Spain than their own small country. :)
Anyway, what are your predictions of this match-up? Holland misses their two best players (Schalken and Verkerk) and will play with Wessels, Van Scheppingen, Sluiter and Rogier Wassen.
Do they stand a chance against a seemingly stronger Slovakian side, containing Hrbaty, Beck, Mertinak and Kucera?

Looking forward to this tie! Hup Holland! :)

I am just waiting for the tie of Switzerland in September :angel: so it is not just spain-lovers in Holland :p

I am looking forward to see Wassen playing :bounce: Go Rogier :yeah:

Yeah! Do you remember we had a discussion ages ago that Wassen should be included in the DC team? I'm glad he's finally selected! Now hopefully he can play well with the spotlights on him!

I have had discussions aobut Wassen with several people, so I don't remember if I had one with you. I just really like it to see a Roermondenaar in the DC :) so for a change I will cheer for Holland! Go Holland :bounce:

I'm not really for Holland, but i would like this team to win, esp now with the "best" players not playing, hopefully this team can win easily!
Maybe the heads of some dutch players from the "old" team will shrink a bit :o

Nymeria
07-12-2005, 06:52 PM
even while all my fave players are from other countries, I usually cheer for Holland. (except when they play my swiss guys of course). And I don't think what you say about the Dutch players is true for all of them. I really respect Sluiter and also Sjeng.

Dutchie
07-12-2005, 07:03 PM
Sluiter is on this team so i didn't mean him ;)

Yeah, truly you can't dislike Sjeng Schalken? :confused:

Well I don't like him, actually I often cheer against him. But you can't say "his head has to shrink" coz that for sure is not true.

Dutchie
07-12-2005, 07:15 PM
Esp Martin and John.
Martin as he's got his head so big it's gonna burst soon, and John just wasn't nice at the last DC meeting (but apart from the DC John is v nice though ;) ) They were having no respect for the other team whatsoever so that's why i hope this new team will do really well, so maybe the players will start to think and notice they aren't that amazing anymore and see there are other players who can play better. So that next time they will be nicer.

OMG my english is total crap today :lol:
I hope my point comes across ;)

Aaargh! I order you to watch his 2002 USO open quarterfinal against Fernando Gonzalez 5 times in a row! :mad:

Nymeria
07-12-2005, 07:17 PM
Well John didn't play that often in the Dutch DC team and about Verkerk it is true (or at least I have the same opinion there) but you can't judge a whole team on this! You should've been more specific.

It's purely based on the DC last time, at all other tourney's he's nice :) He's just a bit too driven at the DC i think!

I don't think it is totally clear cut as some people might think, but regardless I definitely think (and hope) Slovakia wins this.

Dominik is a Davis Cup beast, Beck just posted a really nice win against Spain, Mertinak is playing the best tennis of his career, and Kucera is back from injury and even won a round in Newport. He is obviously not what he once was, but he has a great presence for the team.

Sluiter plays traditionally extremely well in Davis Cup, and has bothered Hrbaty before. The rest like Pedro, Dennis, en Rogier are quality players that can play great tennis, but I still like Slovakia.

I hope Slovakia win. Beck should win his singles, but Hrbaty has a bad record against Sluiter. Funny that they choose to play indoors. I wouldnt have picked that surface, since it helps the Netherlands, with Wessels and Sluiter playing.

Paul Haarhuis couldn't even make it through his doubles match in his last Davis Cup tie. Don't know what they were thinking there.

Paul Haarhuis couldn't even make it through his doubles match in his last Davis Cup tie. Don't know what they were thinking there.

He played on Wimbledon and played v well there, and according to the press in this training week aswell.
There is no good dutch doubles team, so i can understand why they are letting him play.

I don't understand why they choose Wessels as him partner though, Wassen or even van Gemerden are better in their doubles.

I'm curious to see how it'll unfold and who will win!

Scotso
07-14-2005, 09:57 PM

Well, it's Karol's best surface and Hrbaty plays well on the stuff, too. Wessels hasn't really won anything off grass, has he?

I don't really think the surface should matter in this tie. Slovakia SHOULD win 5-0, but you never know.

Beck certainly had his chances. Oh well, thankfully Dominik ended up getting things together and took out Sluiter like he should.

That's not from two sets down.

Well done Peter :yeah: Wasted a 3-0 lead in the third set and a break in the fourth I think, but managed to win :worship:

I doubt Sluiter will play on Sunday; he had great problems with his wrist.

Slovaks won the dubs :D
Well done Beck and Mertinak!

Though I think it may turn out to be a mistake to put Beck in after his 5 set singles, he may now be too tired to play the reverse singles :(
Hopefully Hrbaty can wrap it up first against Wessels.
