Playoffs: Romania vs Canada

Romania: Victor Hanescu Andrei Pavel Florin Mergea Victor Ionita

Canada: Simon Larose Frank Dancevic Frederic Niemeyer Daniel Nestor

Surface: Red Clay (Outdoors)

Played at Bucharest, Romania


Im not too familiar with Canadian tennis except for Nestor in doubles. Not being able to play at home, and playing on clay, which I think is their worst surface to play on, is their nightmare. Playing against Romania on clay is the other nightmare. This should be an easy win for Romania. If Canada wants to win a match, it will be doubles with the experienced Nestor. I say Romania wins all matches except for doubles.

This looked like it would be a whitewash even when it looked like Hanescu would lead Romania.

It will probably be 4-1 Romania, with Canada winning the doubles.

How so? :p

Anyways, good show for Frank. 5 sets against a higher ranked player on his worst surface is nothing to turn your nose up at.

Victor Ionita is an asshole!! He said Nestor wasn't a good doubles player! Absolutly no respect. He'll probably never get as close as Nestor's career!

He can say what he want,but Daniel is still the #1 player in the world and he and Fred just kick his(their) ass today...

Anyway,good job Canucks!Now,let's hope that Frank can tie it up :bounce:
