Easy win for Portugal on clay. 3-0 and then 2 dead rubbers. I hope we both - POR and LTU - will play in 1st group next year :lol: :yeah:

I expect an easy win from us. Even our "worst" player will probably beat Bosnia best player. And Portugal really doesn't belong to II Group, with this players.

VAMOS PORTUGAL!:worship:

EDIT: In fact, i just saw the rank of Bosnia best player, and it's worst than the portuguese low ranked in DC team (João Sousa)

Portugal to me has a team that probably will end up knocking on the door of the world group if not making it one of these years, if the draw works out to their favor. Pretty good team, not amazing, but 4 good players.

Portugal should comfortably win this tie. Nice to see Amer playing Davis Cup.

Completely agree. As Gil say today and I quote "we have a very consisting and solid team not only in singles, but also in doubles. And there are lots of teams that cannot say the same, so we aim to be in World Group in the future."

Yes, I think I speak on behalf of Great Britain...we would be happy for you to move out of Group II. :lol:

Portugal is a very solid team...competitive in all singles rubbers, certainly on clay.

If Amer can back up his play today in his reverse singles match, Bosnia may have a real shot at taking this tie, something I don't think anyone expected.

Worry, Mr. Easy?

Even you have to admit that this was completely unexpected. Anyone who knows a little something about tennis, didn't predict these kind of scores. Clearly an upset, this tie, so far. I'm very disapointed specially of Rui (but also of Fred). Tomorrow doubles, Portugal will be again clearly the the favourites. Tavares is a top 100 doubles player, and Gil made it to Last 16 in USO. But both players cannot disrespect the bosnians. Whitch I think it happened yersterday.

Thanks Burro!:wavey:

Yes, it is on clay. It's played in Centralito, the 2nd most important court of Estoril Open...

And not an excuse, but even before the match Rui said the he is injured. I think if a player is not fully 100% it should be given an oportunitty to another player. I think João Sousa is playing pretty well in last weaks.

Gil was sick and almost retired today.

Machado should have NEVER be called to play a live rubber. His ability to crawl under pressure in big matches is clearly known. With two other good options to play, why put him on court? I can't even want to imagine him playing a live 5th rubber! He would most likely shit his underwear on the court! :lol:

Btw I HOPE Tavares plays Setkic tomorrow. Putting Gil again on court would be a suicide. And if Tavares loses (if that happens, someone just shoot him :lol:), João Sousa should be playing the 5th rubber. He has a much better attitude on court than Machado and can return big serves quite well.

Hope he makes a smooth transition to the Men's Tour soon!
