Re: Davis Cup

The fact Nestor and especially Raonic have roots near Croatia may influence them positively to play - I hope so.

Fact the tie is in February as well limits options on where to play, leveling the playing field a bit more for us I hope.

Brad1973 Croatia will want a good run in 2018 after having lost in the first round in 2017. Cilic seems pretty motivated to play Davis Cup; he just won three live matches against Columbia. I was expecting more from Coric, especially after he beat Sock in Davis Cup in 2016. He and Denis may be better in five months than they are now. Karlovic is on the decline; i expect Coric to be the second singles player. Canada has a strong team if Raonic shows up and plays well.

It would be nice to see everyone get behind Nestor in his last season.

It would be but I also think if we send Raonic, Shapovalov, Pospisil and Nestor we have a chance. As long as we win the doubles I think both Raonic and Shapovalov could beat Coric/Karlovic. Cilic would be a toss up for Raonic.

It's not easy, but if Cilic doesn't go our chances go up. But you of course they are no slouch as the went to the finals last year and were a set away from winning it all.

I checked, they chose hard the last 3 home ties

Not a great draw. They have Cilic and not much else but it's away. Hopefully our team will be fully healthy.
It's not horrible, it could have been worse. With a healthy Raonic, and Shapovalov continuing the way he's been playing I say we have a good chance.

Should we win that we'd get the winner of Kazakhstan and Switzerland in the Quarters

Nope, we played them both away last time.

Re: Davis Cup

If we are away, Felix has shown that he can play on clay and Milos can also play on clay, depending on who the opponents are. Milos practices on clay since he lives in Monte Carlo and sometimes practice on clay. Denis has shown that he can construct points and put it away as USO was one of the slowest hard court that played like a clay and he had no problem beating quality opponents. The only wild card is the doubles as Daniel's final year on clay and Vasek cannot even play on that surface. We will be even more better team even on away tie with clay thrown upon us along the way. I predict that FAA will make the Davis Cup team even for the first round of WG in case if Milos decides not to play due to deep run in AO and might need to make up ton of points that he has lost due to injures and cannot afford to be injured again with IW and Miami coming up that he missed last year to maintain his top 10 ranking even if he is out of top 10.
