Hi. I'll be posting here the official team pictures for the Davis Cup Semis and Play-offs for us MTFers to comment on (and make fun of? hehe)

I like Davis Cup because of the team format and I like collecting these team pictures since we don't get to see them often. I'll also need help from some of you in identifying the lesser known players participating this weekend.

So here we go..

Why do the Swiss have to have SUISSE in big letters printed across the front of their track suits? Ugly. :tape: The other teams uniforms aren't that bad. :o
