I wanna ask Berdych now if, after this match, he would say again " Almagro is the weak point on which we can build our victory".

Vamos, España!

That's being a very interesting match. Almagro is playing very well!

Vamos, Nico!

This court is much faster than Paris, reaction time is shorter. Although is one of the best returners in the circuit Ferrer had problems in Clemont Ferrand (similar court) first sets agaisnt Monfils in 2010. I hope 3-2 Ferrer suffering a lot but tiring Step, it'd be a good score.

Feli is out. Expected, i don't know why Czechs thought he would be playing.

Not a good atmosphere in the team, Feli wanted to play and Almagro is a bad player on fast courts as everybody knows, his 2 points are almost lost obviously. Too much pressure on Ferru and M&M's, they should perform in their best ways to have real chances.

Most complicated final in last 12 years for us for sure. With Nadal on court all would be pretty diferent.

Feli isn't even part of the team at this point.

Re: World Group final: Spain at Czech Republic (November 16-18, 2012)

Tennis on ice is what we expect in Rep Czech more or less.

Apart from this Navratil is 'absolutely sure' that Feliciano will play singles. As Amir said Feli has a good H2H against Berdych but Corretja won't leave Almagro out the team, he won important matches against USA and deserves to play this final. Confidence on Feli has to be enormous to take this decission, Almagro isn't that kind of guy who understand easily a new role in the team only two days before starting.

If Feli plays and his serve works as usual when is motivated on ultra-fast courts he can hold on it and we'll see two or three sets deciding in tie breaks (exactly same as Muzza's match in USOpen'12).

They should've gone with the fastest possible surface... Interesting stuff though!
