just a question : last year against the French Nestor-Raonic played a very good double imo.

Then in the Olympics the double was Nestor-Pospisil and you're still implying now that the double would be Nestor-Pospisil.

Can you explain me about those things if that has been discussed in Canada ?

I think it will be Nestor/Vasek. Vasek seems to be better at doubles than Milos imo. When Laurendeau chose Milos for that doubles match against the french, I don't think many agreed with him. It backfired, they lost, then Milos had an injury concern and didn't play the 4th rubber.

In my mind that test failed, it showed that there was no real advantage in playing Milos over Vasek for the doubles, and on top of that you want Milos healthy, and you want to ensure he is healthy. Of course you want Vasek healthy too, but you don't need him as much in the final rubber, as he wouldn't have that much a chance to win anyway. So I think it will almost always be Nestor/Vasek until Nestor retires anyway, but I'm not Martin Laurendeau, and I don't get to choose.

Also, I believe Nestor said he wanted to play with Vasek against France, and they played Milos/Nestor anyway, I don't think they'd go against that again if Nestor wants Vasek.

But no I've not heard anything official, but I'd be shocked if it was Milos in the doubles if Vasek was healthy

yes and that doubles match against france shows that his choices dont always make sense.To me that says that he thinks the strongest doubles combination is, for whatever reason milos/vasek

so for that reason and the fact that vasek and daniel havent done that well recently as a doubles team im think milos and vasek might be given another try

even though anyone with a brain could see that the best choice is indeed vasek and daniel.

I don't see them playing Milos/Vasek if Nestor is willing and able to play

According to Swiss media Roger told Swiss Tennis that the chances he is going to play the 1st round are low. He said he would have to arrange his schedule wisely "to stay in tennis".
"When I play so much like in the last 2 years it will get difficult."

The final decision if Roger is going to play DC will be made in a few weeks.

Well, Roger won't play but the Czech team also has to replace a player.

Stepanek has to undergo a back surgery and will be replaced in the team by Ivo Minar.

That makes the tie much tighter. If Stan plays like at AO, he can challenge Berdy. And I assume Rosol will be the other Czech singles player. Rosol can either even win Stan or lose to Chiudinelli. And whoever pairs Berdy in doubles isn't in Sexy's level, so that gives Switzerland some hope.

Well, Stan leads the H2H against Tomas 5:4. They played 6 times on HC and are tied here with 3 victories each.

Sure but it also has to be seen whom Stan will play doubles.
Roger isn't playing and Yves Allegro is meanwhile retired.

I haven't read anywhere yet how long Rade will be forced out of the game.

Rosol playing singles then?

No wonder Federer skipped the tie- Berdych and the Legend Killer are on the loose

France due to the depth of the bench.

yes I could say that, but rather because Spain and Argentina may lose this week-end, and Fed doesn't play for Switzerland (a big mistake he will probably regret for long), and Djokovic always hads moments in the year when he can't play.

If France is the lucky team this year as Czech Republic was last year, I can already foresee the French media praising Clément whereas it would only be that they had the luck this year and not previous years
