I would have loved to see the Swedes finally play in Sweden again, but apart from that I think the draw is okay.
The Swedish DC team says this is the best possible draw (even if it´s sad not to play at home...).
They think it´s positive that Jonas knows Max so well, and that Belarus doesn not have any other good players except Max (that is how they write in the Swedish papers).

from GÖTEBORGS-POSTEN

Davis Cup-match kan spelas i Göteborg

TENNIS: Sverige inleder 2007 års Davis Cup med match mot Vitryssland borta den 9-11 februari. Vinner svenskarna den väntar kvartsfinal i Göteborg den 7-9 april mot vinnaren mellan Österrike-Argentina. Preliminär arena är Mässhallen.
Men först måste alltså Vitryssland, där Jonas Björkmans dubbelpartner Max Mirnyi rankas som landsetta, besegras.
- Rent sportsligt en mycket bra lottning även om det hade varit kul med en hemmamatch, säger Jocke Nyström, assisterande DC-kapten till Svenska Tennisförbundets webbsida.


if somebody could help with translation :rolleyes:

Ah-ha! So that's where I should write it.

I've got a message from Nadie. Mostly for Björki I guess.
She congratulated Jonas on the win on behalf of both of you. And says she'll post lots of photos and videos once she's back.

Everybody loves Jonas and he was in Max's home city, so of course he should get the royal treatment in Minsk.

It will be a very tough match, but If Robin can play really good, and we win the doubels we have a really good chance ^^ although i saw that they will only show 4 hours on the first day so we most like will not se much of the second match =/

Björki
03-16-2007, 03:23 PM
To be honest I dont see them win the doubles....
It seems Jonas/Simon are not succesful.

gam_jonte
03-16-2007, 05:11 PM
yes, there results aren't that great, so why haven't they tried with Rober Lindstedt for example? or a pair that work good together, although you can never on hand know the result, they might play really good this time, lets hope that ^^

I am back :sad: But it was such a great weekend and of course the result was best of all :bounce: Honestly I never expected that Sweden would beat Argentina and definitely not so easily!
The whole Swedish team was so happy and I think they deserved this success so much :)

Alison, I am sorry, but I don´t know who he is, I would like to know that myself. Because the friend I was together in Gothenburg asked me the same and we really wanted to know who he is, but anyone knew that...
So, if someone has an idea, please tell us :worship:
