Nole to win both matches, and that's about it for Serbia. The rest is USA's.

with Tipsarevic out of the games this should be a walk in the park for USA

I wouldn't be so sure, if Troicki wins his match it's game over for USA :)

Djokovic can win both his matches, but they won't be easy indoors.
Bryan brothers should win the doubles match.
That means Troicki has to beat either Isner or Querrey, and I can't really see that happening I'm afraid.

3-2 to USA, though if Tipsarevic was playing it would have been closer.

Serbia.
Both Querrey and Isner playing like a shit this year. Troicki is not the best player in the world, but in DC has some important victories. If such mugs as Belluci and Alves were close to win:shrug:

Not necessarily. Isner can lose to anyone this year it seems, and USA barely survived Brazil.

Troicki's best surface is indoor hard, he can beat both Querrey and Isner. :worship:

Isner is a Davis Cup beast, he'll beat Troicki something like 7-6 7-6 7-6

Afraid Nole's two wins will go wasted in this as doubt Troiki will beat Querrey/Isner.

Even Troicki can beat Querrey, the worst US number 1 in years.

Serbia. As said above, Querry & Isner are both playing horribly right now. Even Troicki should be able to take one of them. It is too bad Fish can't compete .. if he was healthy and available, this tie would be in the bag for US.

The doubles is not a guarantee, but the Bryans should win it.

Djokovic will win his 2 rubbers.

Then it all comes down to Troicki stealing one vs. Isner/Querrey on indoors. Those guys return like shit, so Viktor needs to get lucky in a few TB's and boom, there it is.

If it's grass the Bryans plus two American wins over Scrubcki can take the victory. Nole should beat either US guy. Or is it indoors?

Silly choice. Idaho's in the mountains, could have easily got a fast grass court at altitude for Querrey and Isner to serve-bomb their way to victory.

This time of the year with outdoor grass? They may play on snow :p Not very likely but possibly :lol:

Both Isner and Querrey suck on grass, wouldn't be any better, maybe even worse.

Yeah, I think indoor fast hard courts in altitude was the best choice for the U.S. I'm pretty sure Isner has had poor results on grass. Either way it doesn't matter, Djokovic is going to beat both of them so it's up to them to not choke against Troicki. If either one loses to Troicki, the match is over.

I'm going to go with USA
they have the doubles sealed up for sure
all they really need is an upset in singles and frankly whoever the second seed for the SErbian team is does not have particular favorable odds
also remember Isner, despite his injuries, plays sick tennis for Davis Cup
probably reminds him of his college days, team atmosphere

Well, Nole will obviously win his singles and the Bryans will take the doubles. It all comes down to Troicki vs Isner/Querrey. I think Trociki can win one of those.

Troicki has winning H2Hs against both Querrey and Isner so if anything I'd think Serbia are the slight favourites. All 3 have been in awful form lately though so who knows...

Sam and John are sucking so much right now, even Troicki can beat them so it's not a foregone conclusion USA will win, not even in the doubles. The Bryans have had some questionable losses recently.

Troicki to take one of his rubbers, probably against Isner...Serbia 3-2 to take it.

4 of the 5 matches are pretty simple and predictable results:

Djokovic def. Isner in straights
Djokovic def. Querrey in straights
USA wins doubles
Querrey def. Troicki in 4 sets




Here's where it gets a bit sketchy... because you just never know with Isner.

Troicki def. Isner in 5 (after Isner was up 2 sets to 1)


Serbia def. USA

Serbia will win as long as Djokovic goes 2-0. Either they get an upset in the doubles (Nenad Z is good in his own right and the Bryans did lose to the Brazilian doubles team last tie) or Troicki beats Isner who can't beat hardly anyone right now, especially in best of 5 format (mentally will choke if nothing else).

Total toss up

Djokovic should beat both
Brians should win
But then both Americans are slight favorites vs Troicki

Also, Idaho? Seriously? :lol: the stands will be completely empty

Apparently they actually have been selling pretty well, I think I read somewhere that they had already sold at least 8,000 tickets per session which wouldn't be too bad for a 12,000 seat arena.

Pretty hard to say, gonna a hard match for sure. I'd go for USA anyway, they have a strong double and the players there can do big things sometime ;) On the other hand wouldn't be surprised if Serbia won.
