Slovakia's Davis Cup team members Dominik Hrbaty (rear L), Karol Beck (rear R), Michal Mertinak (front L) and Karol Kucera pose after they shaved their heads to mark a victory over Argentina at the Davis Cup semi-final tennis match in Bratislava September 25, 2005. Slovakia reached their first Davis Cup final on Sunday when Dominik Hrbaty finished off Argentina's challenge with a solid 7-6 6-2 6-3 win over Guillermo Coria.

:eek:

They agassied their heads :haha:

Great photo and they have the Argentine shirts well Hrbaty and Beck have.

Mecir should have shaved his head as well, at least they didn't dye it blond and they followed through on their bet.

Rightly or wrongly I like to think Mecir has too much style to do anything this silly. Ofcourse I could be mistaken.

You know if you ever read the Oldies thread on GM. The best way to describe Mecir is think of Kucera at his best and multiply it by 1 000 and then you have Mecir.

It's great that he is the captain for this particular team and if he could lead them victory then good.

For a lot of this disappointment on the big stage during his own tennis career, a Davis Cup would be one hell of a silver lining for the Big Cat.

I'm pretty old myself. I've been a fan of Miloslav ever since the match he beat Becker in the US Open semis. By the end of the match Boris was baffled at what to do - it was inspired. I did actually read that comment of yours previously and yeah there is something to it but I think alot of it comes from the fact that Miloslav coached Karol. It's funny that it was as soon as Mecir started coaching Kucera that Karol's career took off.

Back to the Oldies thread, I also recall you acurately describing how Llendl acted as Mecir's nemisis. They were such contrasting figures and I used to hate seeing the artist bludgeoned by the far more boring game of Lendl's. Having said that I do also have alot of respect for Lendl too but those two Mecir-Llendl slam finals are real depressing matches.

He deserves something big for sure, and this would be great.

Yeah absolutely. Mecir is my all time favorite. I love Goran too and was fortunate enough to see him finally win Wimbledon and against another team not lead by Miloslav he'd have my total support. But it would be tremedous for Mecir to lead Slovakia to the Davis Cup. That would definately put tears in my eyes. When he won the Olympics he won it for Czechoslovakia and while I'm sure that means more to him that any other title he won I think winning specifically for Slovakia would be even better.

Karol was Little Cat and even though he was the cheaper verson he still did some very good performances and I loved him against Agassi, he did what Mecir did against Agassi and he hated it.

He was an artist and moved so well around the court and as for Lendl well they were different guys and I found a pic which I will post in that other thread.

True. Kucera was fun when he was giving nightmares to Sampras and Agassi. At the time a don't think either of them showed him the respect he deserved although I think they both tried to make amends a few years later.
