2-man team for the czechs, but it should be enough. Do not know enough about Stepanek vs Rochus/Darcis, but i think he will at least will win one of his ties.

Instead of Darcis Belgium should have gone for Norman.

it's on clay and Darcis is the only Belgian player who has played on clay in the last weeks.

He's also the youngest and was Belgian number 1 player one year ago, nearly top-50.

Then it's not surprising at all :shrug:

He's is appalling form and Norman is a doubles specialist, now they've got no doubles specialists ;)

They should have pick Malisse and O. Rochus for singles and Oli and Norman, the best double specialist in Belgium and good on clay. Darcis could be a substitute in singles and(or) in doubles

yes but all of them are quite good in doubles, except maybe Christophe. And it's on clay.

Too have a doubles specialist in your team, is a must I think!

it's surely nice, but very often singles players, although not used to playing doubles, perform very well when they do. And on clay the difference is even lower between doubles specialists and the others.
