Morocco vs Great Britain (Playoff)

I think when the draw was made for the playoffs this was one of the toughest draws that GBR could have got. Its bad enough the fact that we are away from home and on our least favorite surface, also we have to contend with an in form Younis El Aynaoui.

Greg and Tim will have their work cut out in this tie.

I think the crutial match in this draw will be the doubles and on that basis I am tipping the undefeated team of Greg and Tim (In Davis Cup) to win the tie for GBR 3-2.

Match Prediction

Arazi vs Henman = Henman
El Aynaoui vs Rusedski = El Aynaoui
Morocco Team vs Greg & Tim = Greg & Tim
El Aynaoui vs Henman = El Aynaoui
Arazi vs Rusedski = Rusedski

Depending on the form of Rusedski, Bogdanovic may get a chance to impress like he did in Austrailia.

Good luck Great Britain. :)

Come on Tim! :mad:

Fight

This is a rubber that I thought Tim would win, looks unlikely now unless Hitchim has one of his concentration lapses.

Both these players are very prone to those.

The tie is still alive.......barely :o

I really don't want us to be relegated, but it will take a small miracle for Henman to beat Younes. A rested Younes against Henman, who'll be playing his 3rd day in a row :(

Well done Tim & Greg on their 7th consecutive doubles win in Davis Cup

GB can still win this 3-2. :D

Henman will have to play much better though to beat Younis.

Greg is playing really well and if it comes down to a fifth rubber then I can see him beating Hitchim. :)

It's kind of hard to believe that Arazi is up two sets to one on Greg. Arazi must be playing like his old self. :)
