Re: 2012 Olympics

I guess, yeah. Daniel loves wimbledon so i guess playing with vasek wouldnt be the right move for him. Maybe , because they have played they might feel like they dont need to play any tune ups

Re: 2012 Olympics

I doubt they'll play Wimbledon together. Didn't Daniel and Fred only play 1 tournament together before Beijing? That was Indy wasn't it? That didn't work out so well in 08 but Fred was injured I think.

I highly doubt they'll play Wimbledon together. Too important of a tournament for Daniel. i could see them entering Newport though if they want a grass warmup. I assume they would want one after Wimbledon, and not play a grass tuneup before Wimbledon and then Daniel playing with Max in Wimbledon

Re: 2012 Olympics

It's not a sure thing obviosuly but it's definately a possibility
it gets even better for him when you take into account germany, and belgium's rediculous policy regarding olympic qualification

sweden too but there are no swedish players above him so ..yeah

I'm not sure how exactly alts work, whether they actually have the next couple highest ranked players already over there in case, but Neimeyer was nowhere near ranked high enough in 08, but got in the draw as an alt because he was there for doubles anyway.
Maybe more players will be near London though since its in Europe and not China?

Re: 2012 Olympics

Looks like Nestor has chosen Vasek to be his doubles partner according to Tennis Canada.

Re: 2012 Olympics

Nestor has chosen Pospisil as his partner - makes sense to me:

Re: 2012 Olympics

MEP's double ranking is around 120 so I don't think it will be high enough unless she can dramatically increase it.

Re: 2012 Olympics

sorry for deleting my post there, but i realized i wasnt to sure what i was saying

but yeah, i dont see vasek making it high enough in the rankings to be selected for men. In all likelihood milos will be the only singles player..however with all milos has to defend early a bad start to the year could mean we have no men there. I dont think that will be the case but you all know me..

doubles..daniel will be there and he'll probably team with vasek since the 2 have had more experience together and success in davis cup. In fact i think id prefer daniel and vasek

ill state again that its looking grim for the women. Rebecca has alot to defend early next year and i dont see aleks or stephanie making the jump in time.

we dont have any good doubles players in the womens side so..
