Hate to be proved right...at least Groth-Peers pushed it to 5 I guess. Can't see Sock playing the reverse singles?

There si still the Groth factor to consider though...but if they go two up, I'd put K into the doubles.

As much as playing Kyrgios for 3 best of 5 matches is a high work load for him, I just can't see Groth in current form being up to it in doubles over the strong options U.S have.
We'll go down unless Nick plays 3 matches, its our only hope.
Tend to agree, but doubt Nick has the fitness levels needed to do this - gets injured far too easily.

And the for record, I respect Groth's experience, doubles ranking, serve, patriotism and high-energy team spirit to warrant his place in the team. I also respect Hewitt as a captain and respect his judgement to play Groth over the younger options.

Re: The Everything Davis Cup Thread (News, Articles, Live Scores)

Same old same old team announced again - Kyrgios, Thompson, Groth, Peers.

Have to say really can't understand why Groth is till in the mix - Whittington and Polmans ranked above him in both singles both ranking wise (180, 193, 197) and in the race (where Groth is back at 303). And in doubles, the two have of course done way better this year. Would have thought either, or Jordan, would make a better partner for Peers.

And surely time to start bringing in the young blood in again, given Jasika (at long last), Mott and de Minaur all getting close to top 100 in the race....

Well okay then. Sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne confirmed.

Canberra has good flights and a nice new set of courts though...
