At least without him, there is some doubt as to who will play the other singles match(es) besides Monaco. Nalbandian is possibly the favourite, but he will be needed for doubles...so playing Friday and Saturday would be a risk. Chela's form has been on the slide since RG last year. Actually I'm surprised Berlocq wasn't named instead of Chela. He could play either singles or doubles.

The problem for Germany is that indoor clay is only really beneficial for Mayer...and that is a dangerous situation for them. He lacks the mental strength to be a strong Davis Cup singles player, and I'm not sure that he has recovered from his groin injury.

Kohlschreiber has hit good form at the best time, so hopefully he can challenge for a win against Chela or Nalbandian. Against Monaco...it will be very tough.

I'm not sure I like Haas being named in the squad tbh. I presume he would play doubles with Petzschner, which could be a good partnership if they can avoid choking...but is he physically and mentally ready for a potentially long match?

On paper Petzschner and Haas seems like a good doubles team. They have only played one match together though, they lost to Paes/Bhupati in RG last year. I can't wait for the doubles match.

If Mayer has one of his DC-meltdowns, Petzschner (or maybe even Haas) will probably get some singles action on sunday.

Does anyone know which matches DCTV will show?

Mayer is back after a long injury pause and was beaten by Mahut in Montpellier, he's not in top form but Kholi is in semi in Montpellier, he plays well and can be dangerous in DC

I hope to be wrong but I don`t see Argentina winning this tie as I think Germany has a stronger team .

Definitely the singles should be played by Monaco and Nalbandian if he is in good shape. Chela might team up with Schwank for the doubles match.

Argentina needs to win both singles on friday. If not, it will be very hard.

I'm not very pleased with this teams. For Germany, Kohli is sure the best choice. I'm not sure Mayer is a good choise in this surface and he is not 100% physically ready yet after his injury. It's not a good thing in 5 sets match on clay. If Berrer would had done his great run in Zagreb before, i think he would have ben good. He has a 3rd roundin RG last year. Petzchner or Haas are 50-50 for the second single. But Petzchner is set to play doubles. I don't understand why Kas is not here. He know very well with Petzchner and he has great start of season.
For Argentina, it's a pity than Del Potro dont play DC. Even if it's on clay. And i'm tired of Nalby situation. He doesn't play tournaments or one match and after he walk over and he still have his place in the team. Monaco, Chela and Berlocq, who improved a lot the last months, are better and obectives better choices. Berlocq can play doubles with Chela or Scwhank.
I think Argentina will win this one.

I think it's because the Germans had doubts about Mayer and Haas looked good in Australia, then they asked him to come.

And the Argentine double is not good anyway, then they can make a German team to beat them even without Kas.

Anyway the Argentines should win, but I'm surprised that some disrespect Kohlschreiber's abilities on clay, he's a good clay player.

Is that for definite?

Horrible luck for Germany so far this season. They made a bold move to host the tie on clay (to eliminate Del Potro), but unfortunately the players are struggling for fitness at the worst possible time.

I'm doubtful about Mayer's groin. At full fitness, he'd potentially be a handful for the Argentines considering that he'd be playing on his favourite surface, and performed well on clay last season. However, I suppose that there would have been doubts about mental strength anyway.

As duong says, Kohlschreiber is capable of playing well on clay, and his form this season has been very good...confidence would be at its highest for a couple of years. Certainly dangerous, especially against Argentine #2 player.


I am very doubtful that Stebe could win a live singles this weekend. For me, the AO match against Hewitt gives a very good indication...talented player, but likely to struggle with stamina/nerves.

Haas shouldn't play singles...needs to conserve energy for doubles anyway.

Petzschner would really struggle imo. Nalbandian is a horrible match-up for him, and Monaco should grind him down.

Not sure if the following video works for ppl outside of Germany.

Pretty funny commercial for the DC broadcast on bild.de with Haas throwing out a tv screen (no german tv channel willing to show it)
