Re: Davis Cup 2010: France against Germany
But which youngster do you want to give a chance in this case? All the other options in the top 100 are "oldies". He could take a real youngster like Rufin as a sparring-partner, they often do that in the German team, but since Gaël, Jo and Mika are all a bit injury prone, it would be risky.
It's not sure yet anyway that he will take only 4 guys, maybe he'll think about it again and nominate the 5th player today already.
There are no news about the German team, always the same situation - nobody expects Haas to play, but it's not official yet.
It should be Kohli, Mayer, Petzschner. My pick for the last spot would be Berrer, L'Equipe says Becker, but they might say that based on the rankings only.
