He also says that he doesn't see a realistic chance to win DC without a second rubber worth mentioning, and if he had to withdraw from one event it would be DC. Pretty harsh words but it's spot on imo..
I kind of agree with him.

Maybe it sounds strange, but indoor clay would have been the perfect surface for the tie. You know, Robin serves way better indoors + the Serbs are all better on HC than on clay.
But anyway the Swedes have to hope that Nole won't be available for the tie, otherwise they have only a slim chance (Robin to win his 2 singles and then the doubles).

USA vs Spain will be held at Austin.

Sweden vs Serbia at Halmstad Arena (indoor hard).
Hey, my country beat Serbia one time. Actually, we beat them a lot of times. But I am still betting on Serbia on this one. They have a better winning history than Sweden.

Yes, it's indoor hard (Premier is the exact name of the surface).

The United States Tennis Association announced that the cities of Albany, NY, Austin, TX, and San Antonio, TX are the three finalists to host the quarterfinal.

Roddick’s hometown of Austin is the prohibitive favorite to win the bid. The deadline to submit the nomination to the ITF is March 21.

"I appreciate the USTA for even considering it. I think it’s been no secret that I have wanted it for a long time," said Roddick. "It would be a dream come true to play at home."

Re: 2011 World Group draw

Fed played DC in 2009 against Italy
He must play one tie this year or in 2012 to be eligible for the Olympics

DC gives points but no money.

If playing 2 ties before the Olympics is the rule then Federer, if he wants to play in London olympic, would have to play DC at least 2 times before as Murray and all who normally don't play DC. No?
