Let's teach the Canucks how to play on the dirt. :D

I'm pretty confident about this one, I think the only point Canada have a good shot at is the doubles. If Brazil lose as much as one of the four singles rubbers, it will be utterly embarassing.

I would not call it utterly embarassing if Dancevic beat Sa he just got Dicked by Norman 6-1 6-2 :haha: :haha:

Infact Frank should beat him all be it on clay. :D

Call me crazy but I think this comes down to Saretta vs Dancevic.

I think Dancevic will beat Daniel (or Mello) Saretta will be Niemeyer Daniel/Mello will beat Niemeyer but Canada will win in doubles (Nestor/Polansky :banana:)

Frank is the best player in the tie :D

Saretta is the best player in the tie, especially considering it's on clay. ;)

I still favour the #2 Brazillian (be it Daniel or Mello) over Dancevic. Agree with you on the doubles, Canada are the favourites because of Nestor, even though Guga/Sá aren't exactly mugs on doubles, and Guga may get really fired up playing in his hometown.

Anyway, should be an exciting tie. :)

Right now, Dancevic is the best player in the tie, but Saretta is the best player on clay ;) and since the tie is on clay thats all that really matters ;)

But yeah Brasil is definatly the favorites and Saretta has always done very well at home, so it will be very hard for Frank to beat him in Brasil on clay. I still think we will get that one match (Frank over your number 2) so I am predicting a 3-2 Brasil win, but anything can happen ;)

Doubles match should be a fun one. :D

Canada wont even televise this, thats how patetic tennis Canada is :sad:

Well that's debatable, since Saretta is currently ranked higher than Dancevic. :p

Yep, it's not impossible Dancevic gets a win over our #2. Mello and Daniel are not exactly mental fortitudes. :scared:

That sucks. :sad: I'm sure some Brazilian friends will provide some live commentary here, though. :)

Frank made over 150 ranking points in the first 3 months of 2006 from challengers. This year, he made only 80 points. In the month of Feb, he played 3 ATP events and got 0 points :tape:

Oh yes, but its not his fault he didnt have to qualify and drew Roddick and then Murray in back to back tournements. (just bad luck for him)

He really should have beaten Kunitsyn at Vegas though. :mad:

He also had Murray in that match. :sobbing:

Young players Nicolas Santos, Daniel Dutra Silva, José Pereira Jr and Henrique Cunha are still with the team. Joao Souza will arrive tomorrow to add the team.

The team os Canadá was expected to arrive in Brazil yesterday, but it has a big problem with the flights and the brazilian airports, so the canadians will arrive here just tomorrow...

I think it will be 3 x 2 to Brasil, or 4 x 1... The canadians may win the doubles and the match between Dancevic and Marcos Daniel

I think Canada can win this. They will for sure win the doubles, Niemayer and Nestor have never lost and they sure as hell wont lose to whoever teh Brazilian pair is cuz well lets just say doubles isnt really the forte of the brazilians here.

Dancevic is only 1 and 8 on clay in his DC career but he is really improved this year, taking Roddick, Baghdatis, Murrey and Gonzalez to 3 sets this year.

I would love to see Polansky be the other singles player but I doubt that will be the case so Niemayer is 3-4 on clay.

I think that this DC tie will come down to the last rubber.

Brazil should win. It can be 5-0 or 3-1 or 3-2, but It will be decided on Sunday 80% sure.
I think it will be something like this:

Dancevic def. Daniel
Saretta def. Niemeyer
Nestor/Niemeyer def. Kuerten/Sa
Saretta def. Dancevic
Kuerten def. Niemeyer :)

I'd be really surprised if Guga gets picked for a live fifth deciding rubber - let alone a live singles rubber. He hasn't played a best-of-five sets match since September 2005, I'm not sure if he would have the required conditions.

IMO Costa (the captain) should stick with Daniel for Sunday even if he loses to Dancevic on Day 1, if he goes on and loses to Niemeyer on day 3, it will be only his fault and he should never be called up for Davis Cup again. :o

I'm actually starting to think Mello will get picked instead of Daniel. His form has picked up since Miami and he's far more experienced. Either way, Brazil are still the favourites.

Ricardo Mello has been officially confirmed as the #2 singles player, instead of Marcos Daniel.

As expected, Saretta (#1 singles) and Guga/Sá (doubles) complete the team.

Mello sucks big time on clay right now, but so do the Canadians. I don't think he should be playing instead of Daniel, that sucks. I don't wanna even think about what will happen if he loses... well, it's almost impossible to lose on clay against the Canadians, but the usual spanking in the play-offs is expected.

I believe lately, Mello is a better choice. But I don't think it really matter vs Niemeyer :shrug:

04-05-2007, 03:04 PM
The tie is going to be about Dancevic... If he does well, Canada wins. If he doesn't, Canada loses. I think he has potential to be a good, not great, clay courter. He only needs to be a little more patient then he is right now on hard and it could work fine. He has a great serve. Speed won't automaticly do the work but his kick serve is just retarded(in a good way ;)).

I've seen Saretta play a few times and he is either fantastic or terrible :p.. No middle so a lot depends on how he plays. I hope Canada puts Polansky in as the #2 singles player because he has so much more potential on clay IMO (great mover, great baseliner, good serve, not an all out attacker, like most Canadians).

I don't see Canada losing the doubles match. There is no way they are losing it! It will come down to sunday for sure with a 3-2 win for either team. I don't see a 4-1 comming!

Anyways, good luck to our Brazilian friends :wavey:

Guga seems physically and technically fit enough to play a 3 sets match. He shouldn't lose a set against Niemeyer.

If Brazil is 1-1 on Monday, I would prefer to save him for Sunday instead of playing doubles.

I know, but its usually against real players that he gives up the lead, so I have complete faith in him winning this match. :)

Don't forget that everybody's a "real player" against Frank on clay, even Ricardo freakin' Mello

Niemeyer on clay...

:haha:
Yeah, I put a serious amount of money @ Saretta, but you never know with guys ranked below top100 :(


But you see, once upon a time, that "anticlayourt mofo" Niemeyer actually won against Saretta, furthermore, on clay, furtherfurthermore IN BRASIL!!!!

So I am a bit worried :/

Especially if Frank wins this and Flavio has great pressure on his back ://

And I think Mello just gave Brazil 2 points by keeping Frank on court 5 hours.. It's going to be hard to recuperate for him as he is not used to play that much...

Respect to both however to have played 5 hours in the Brazilian heat...

That's what I said after the Dancevic-Mello match.. Mello might have won 2 points with his win. Frank can't play! Even if Peter would win, I don't think Fred will beat Mello so, it's basicly over I think, but great performance by Frank showing HE CAN play on clay!
