Me to, Austria 3-2, Koubek is in runing form, Ančić can't win in any rubber (if he isn't plaing against pairs player) and Karlović is injured (just mocking, it's better that he is, he's on clay like a fish on dry). I love our team, but in history of DC, an actual champion (Croatia in this case) never won first opponent next year. It's clay and IMO Austria good dogie.

p.s. Ivanišević beat Muster on DC match in Austria (clay) so everything is possible...

melzer is 1-0 against luba, and luba is 3-3 all time with koubek, so on clay, it could happen i think

Maybe Croatia feels too secure, a lot of things can happen and Koubek's Davis Cup strength, paired with the good showing he had last week could be Austria's chance here. (and if Melzer also contributed any points, well, even better :cool: )

Can't tell you how much I would like Austria to upset Croatia :smoke:
Croatia is the clear favourite, but I hope Austria wins! :yeah:

Los gehts! Melzer, Koubek, Knowle and Muster! :D

A new try, since nobody answered my question in the thread about the team nominations:
How does it work when a player is the captain too? Who will sit in the chair of the captain when Ljubicic will play?

A new try, since nobody answered my question in the thread about the team nominations:

One of the other players in the squad or maybe a coaching assistant. It happened in 2003 when Rosset played doubles.

Thanks! Has he made any statement in that regard, do we know who will coach him during his matches?
And does he have to coach the other player or are they allowed to have a coaching assistant for all the rubbers? Ljubicic may have to get ready for his own match, he can't coach Ancic during his whole match (and it must be mentally exhausting to do both jobs!)

Auf gehts! Austria will bagel Croatia in my dreams, but unfortunately I am realistic and not overly optimistic :lol:

I think we will win a rubber or two, but I don't pay enough attention to the Croatians to know any better. If peopple are doubting Mario in DC...check out Jurgen's record. It's fantabulous.

Fingers crossed for the boys, hope they have a lot of support :yeah:

I hope this is first and last match with Ljubicic as a coach. I doesn`t have enough authority, and is not that smart either to be a coach.

Lol how about Ancic to be a coach? :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

i wish Ljubo would be a nice coach in the future not this time on clay but since he has been that, best luck to him :p

cant wait for doubles partners, Ljubo + Marin is best to me :)

Austria will win 4-1. This rubber has upset written all over it.

I think Austria has good chances here, but Melzer will need to win his 2 matches.
