I hope Ebden is chosen. Been in pretty good doubles form aswell. But, it will probably be Matosevic.

with the view that the wild card was given Matosevic, and not Ebden, i think that should not be Ebden in team.

Bohli and Chiudinelli might cause a few problems, Federer who?

How is Marinko's ankle?
Has he recovered from the US Open injury yet?

Hewitt and Tomic to spearhead Davis Cup charge

Lleyton Hewitt and Bernard Tomic will spearhead Australia’s challenge against a powerful Swiss team in their Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group Play-off tie on the grass courts of the Royal Sydney Golf Club next week.

The Australians also named big serving Melbourne left-hander Chris Guccione and talented Victorian Marinko Matosevic in their four-man team to do battle against a Swiss team comprising Roger Federer, Stanislas Wawrinka, Stephane Bohli and Marco Chiudinelli under the captaincy of Severin Luthi.

Australian Davis Cup captain Pat Rafter is confident Hewitt will be fit and said they (he and coach Tony Roche) had chosen the team based on form, fitness and the surface.

“Lleyton missed the US Open and has arrived in Sydney nice and early to get the best possible preparation. He is a fighter and I am confident he will get his body right for the tie,” Rafter said.

“Obviously there is a watching brief on Marinko and his ankle. If he doesn’t come up we will make a late change. But we want to give him every opportunity to prove his fitness.”

Matosevic was first to withdraw from his first-round match at the US Open when he injured his ankle in the first set. The Australians have added West Australian Matt Ebden to the squad on standby and he will be in Sydney training with the team.

Popular veteran Peter Luczak is also in the squad as a hitting partner as is the designated “orange boy” (junior hitting partner) former world number one junior Jason Kubler.

“We want to get them on the grass, in front of our home crowd and fight like hell to win this tie. All of our guys have been picked because they play well on grass. We are the underdogs but we don’t mind that at all. This is a very determined bunch of guys,” Rafter said.

waiting on Matosevic is a bit insulting to Ebden, he's arguably a more valuable player than Matosevic anyway.

I'm so shocked Federer is going to travel so far down to Australia at this time of year.
Hopefully the rain delays in New York will keep him there long enough to decide to pull out of Davis Cup. We'd take down a Wawrinka-only Swiss team!

Also, historically we would always be a guarenteed doubles winner every tie (mainly due to Woodbridge). Look how sad our doubles line-ups are these days! Paul Hanley should be in the tie at least to give us some credibility. What will our doubles team be? Guccione/Hewitt? Like Hewitt hasn't got enough on his plate trying to be fit for singles. Guccione/Matosevic? Please, get your shit together Pat!
