Yeah, worst draw for Germany there.

Argentina should be targeting 2-0 tomorrow, barring any big surprises.

Petzschner's game might unsettle Monaco a little, but Pico should get the job done over 5 sets. Nalbandian is a bad match-up for Mayer, although I guess it depends which Bandy turns up. Will be interesting to see what shape Mayer is in.

Lol, clay, that was the worst surface they could choose. Really laughable.

I agree. If both Del Potro and Kohlschreiber would've played, it's terrible. If only Kohlschreiber and not Del Potro plays, it's still terrible.

Imo, Monaco is the big time favorite in both his matches no matter his German opponent on clay, and that's not even talking about Del Potro.

Indoor hard(like 50 of 50 in court speed ) against Nalbandian and Del Potro would be tough, but at least a chance for upset. I'd say when you have the far inferior team on paper you take the fastest court you can find with very few exceptions.. Or maybe they think higher of Kohlschreiber and Mayer than I do..

Now of course, it's a cakewalk.

There is grass in Halle, Kohli, Petzsche and even Mayer and Haas like it and we play on clay against south americans...

Argentina up 2-0 going into Saturday, but they mustn't get complacent.

Might be best to let the doubles go (rest Nalbandian), and focus on that remaining point in singles. Monaco should beat Mayer on current circumstances, although it was only last year that he was losing to him. Nalbandian is a wretched match-up for Petzschner, so Argentina should ensure that Dave is 100% ready for a live 5th if needed.

Therefore, it is perhaps best that Argentina lets the doubles go tomorrow (i.e. rest Nalbandian), as Germany would be tough to beat in that match anyway.

Fantastic victory by Argentina with Nalbandian one more time leading the DC team . I believed beforehand that Argentina was going to find it very difficult to win in Germany but singles were easier than I expected and the fantastic comeback on the doubles too. Well done. I will be in Parque Roca to see Argentina vs Croatia next April
