The rumour is Almagro, Bautista, Granollers and Marc Lopez would be spanish team. Any news on canadian? Maybe Raonic, Levine, Dancevic and Nestor?

What about Verdasco and Feli Lopez?

Levine can't play this time.

Default Re: Davis Cup

What a bummer that Vasek is out & Levine unavailable for this tie ... otherwise we've actually got a great shot with only Almagro as a "real" top-40 singles player - (neither Granollers nor Feli are in good singles form right now). And Vasek & Levine would have probably been our best options for doubles (not wanting to have either Frank or Milos have to play 3 best-of-5's in a row). As it is, think we should go with:

Fri
Milos vs. Spain #2
whoever (probably polansky) vs. Almagro (so Dancy's go something left in the tank for maybe crucial 5th match) - throwaway or more politely nothing-to-lose match

Sat
Frank & Nestor for doubles

Sun
Milos vs. Almagro
Frank vs. Spain #2

And we still have a shot.

Default Re: Davis Cup

Verdasco wouldn't play, and seems Bautista is ahead of Feliciano in the consideration

Clearly Canada will need doubles and 2 Milos Singles to win, is hard but not impossible

Almagro said before he might not play.

what a blow to spain. To have your 3 top players in ferrer, almagro and nadal all pull out .

the tie is now wide open basically. But even if canada actually wins it means next to nothing since, yeah they beat spain but none of spains top guys will have been participating

Default Re: Davis Cup

Vasek and Levine are no go's, who is you team?

Milos, Frank and Nestor obviously.

Is Frank or Peter a better doubles player than Shamasdin? I doubt it, Frank will be playing 2 singles, I wouldn't want to tire him out playing doubles but the doubles will be important, why not play Nestor/Shamasdin?

i mean, i might be alone here but i am severly disappointed. what could have been a very exciting tie is now looking lack lustre. Canada will not be sending its best team and spain will be sending its c level team

I thought Canada was past the point of having to play that choker Dancevic in Davis Cup ties. That's probably the most disappointing part of all of this. I hope at least somebody good from Spain shows up so Milos can at least be challenged in that environment.

It means more than that, last I checked having an easier adversary is what one wants.

It also means alot cause it will mean that Canada won't have to play the WG playoffs again and will stay in the WG.

Well then add Shamasdin to the team too.

I don't get comments like this, I thought we wanted Canada to win.

Sure we want Canada to win but we'd like to have our best against theirs. All their top players have bailed.
