Re: Davis Cup

I was hoping to see Pospisil and Raonic playing some of the South American clay tournaments to prepare for the tie against France, but I guess that was wishful thinking. They didn't play in Quito and they aren't playing in Buenos Aires. I wonder if either one of them will play against France.

Tsonga is playing in Buenos Aires. Pospisil, Simon, Monfils and Gasquet are playing in Rotterdam. Three weeks until Davis Cup round one.

Re: Davis Cup

Guadeloupe is close to home for Nestor and Pospisil, both of whom reside in the Bahamas. I think Tsonga is playing the South American clay circuit, so he should be ready.

Re: Davis Cup

I think it's official now that they will have the tie in Guadeloupe.

Re: Davis Cup

So the tie will be in Guadeloupe on big surprise, red clay, very interesting location for it, I see it looks like there are some politics happening within the FFT as to why the location was picked, however it may be changed as the costs of hosting it there will be higher than they expected, which were already high, will know on Monday if it stays there.

I still think Raonic will take both of his rubbers. Pospisil will depend on a lot of things, form, opponent and surface.

The big question for me is Nestor still going to be playing?
Make no mistake, this draw will be very difficult indeed, I would be more inclined to agree with you about Milos and overall if this tie were held in Canada, but since it's in France, it's likely to be on clay, which means that if Milos plays Gasquet and/or Tsonga, the chances of him winning both aren't so good and well we all know how poor Vasek is on clay.

Re: Davis Cup

That's a very unfortunate draw for Canada. France just fired Arnaud Clement and replaced him with Yannick Noah. I know the French players will come together and try to win it for Yannick. The latest generation (Tsonga, Monfils, Gasquet, Simon) know they aren't getting any younger and would like to win once.

I'm sad to see that they introduced fifth set tiebreakers in Davis Cup. That Mayer-Souza (Argentina-Brazil) match was a gem.

Oh c'mon, we all know Frank is better than 272, anyhow his match should have been closer, Darcis hasn't exactly been lighting it up for awhile, so the match was quite winnable.

I agree. I don't think anyone should have expected us to win this tie.

Honestly, I'm just pleased to see Peliwo play well on a big stage and hopefully he can gain confidence going forward.

They should have won the doubles to save the tie for 1 more day, couldn't even do that, all in all one of the worst DC performances from Canada in awhile.

Re: Davis Cup

I'm glad this tie is over. Now I can stop with the pointless hoping. Canada's traditional strength, the doubles, has become it's biggest weakness.

It's a pity they couldn't take advantage of this year's opportunity. With Switzerland losing early and Serbia defeated by Argentina, the stars seemed to be lining up for Canada. I can imagine a semifinal at home against Argentina with four tough singles matches and a good chance to win. I can also imagine a final at home, on an indoor court, against Great Britain. Raonic has a good record against Andy Murray and their #2 singles player is James Ward. We'll never know.

Canada's future Davis Cup success will depend on Raonic's and Pospisil's willingness to play. They may both need to play three matches. As for 2015, I think I'll cheer for Great Britain for the rest of the year. Andy Murray won two live matches against the US and two live matches so far against France. He has a good chance to take it all the way, against Kazakhstan and at home against Argentina.

Re: Davis Cup

Well Darcis takes the first match.

It was always going to be extremely tough to win without Raonic and Pospisil but it seems almost impossible now.

Let's see what Peliwo can do against Goffin.

I give Canada a 7% chance of winning. Dare to dream.
