Seriously there is nothing bad about this.
If I were Canada I'd wear white. We need home and away uniforms!

Or wear black just to mess up the Serbs.

I sure hope its not both sides wearing red uniforms playing on red clay, will be torture even in HD!

Speaking of red clay, is it guaranteed that Serbia will select clay? Djokovic is good on any surface, so I suspect that they would want a surface which is as bad for Milos as possible. While clay is a decent answer, I don't think it is Milos worst surface, which I would actually say is a slow, low bouncing hardcourt which is affected by wind. So will the Serbs choose the clay for sure, or may they try something else?

Serbia chose indoor Clay vs US in 2010 with Isner and Querrey so it's very likely another indoor clay.

Default Re: Davis Cup

The draw for the World Group playoffs just came out. It feels weird that I’m not checking to see who Canada is playing. Columbia versus Japan should be interesting.

People keep saying that Canada made the semifinals in 1913. I don’t think that’s quite right. Under the Challenge Round system, the winner of the tournament played the previous year’s champion to determine the new champion. In 1913, the US beat Canada in the final and then beat Great Britain in the challenge round. I know calling Canada the finalist is misleading because it suggests they were in the final two, but calling them semi-finalists is not right either.

I can’t believe the challenge round lasted until 1971. I’m glad they abolished it, though maybe it would make sense to give the two finalists a bye in the first round of the following year.

Default Re: Davis Cup

It is interesting the challenge round lasted that long - had no idea. I don't think that the 1913 achievement,call it a semi-final or something else, is anywhere near this one where the game's gone so global. Even with Raonic, he's not cracked the top 13 yet.

We've had an incredibly good draw, true, but I think we have a 30, 35% chance of winning away to Serbia. I can see Vasek getting into the top 70 or so while Tipsarevic may be on a permanent, though gradual, decline. If Nestor can keep his form - curious to see how he'll do in doubles on clay this year. I do think you try to play Jesse (or maybe Frank) on the first day and save Vasek for the doubles and last day singles.

Default Re: Davis Cup

Raonic throws me for a loop by beating Nestor in doubles in Monte Carlo, but I still think it's better to save Raonic for singles and have Nestor and Pospisil play doubles. With Tipsarevic and Troicki currently struggling, the fifth match is shaping up to be pretty interesting. I would pick Pospisil over Levine and Dancevic as the second singles player.

Hehe, it's pretty funny that we're all watching matches and dreaming of a scenario where we could win this. And it's scary that the dominoes all falling doesn't seem impossible.

Danny and Linstedt beat Nenad and Almagro today. Danny's at an age where I don't think he can be consistent for 2 weeks and win a slam but we just need one good day. If he's healthy and playing decent, I think it's 65-70% we'll be up 2:1 going into the third day.

I was reading through that old Canadian Players thread. I wish we could go back a few years in time and make them laugh by telling them that most of us are 95% sure that a Canadian Player will face the World #1 in a live rubber on Sunday of the Davis Cup semi-finals.

I know, the change in Canadian tennis since I have been here has been massive.

Default Re: Davis Cup

Nestor plays Zimonjic tomorrow two months ahead of their Davis Cup match. Pospisil has solidified his place as Nestor's Davis Cup doubles partner by having a good doubles run at Wimbledon. I wonder if Serbia will use Bozoljac again. He's never done anything except beat the Bryans in Davis Cup in April.

Pospisil has also solidified his place as the second singles player. It's a pity he fell just short against Zeballos and Youzhny, but someday a breakthrough will come (in the fifth match in Belgrade?). He's playing about as well as Tipsarevic and Troicki, even on clay.

I wonder if Laurendeau will put someone else against Djokovic on Friday to save Pospisil from having to play three matches. Dancevic's win against Granollers in February seems like a distant memory.

I agree with everything said. As it stands, it's Jesse solidly over Frank or Peter for the No. 4 spot, and I agree that having him play Friday against Joker would be the thing to do.

Actually Pospisil and Levine might be the new DC dubs team, if not right away then soon.

Troicki suspended 18 months for failing to provide a blood sample. My goodness, with jankos form this could be the perfect storm for canada. A lot of things have gone our way with the spain absentees and drawing italy at home in the quarters.

Tipsarevic is slumping hard.
Canada went from having the most brutal draw to one of the "easiest" possible.

Good luck, guys!

Default Re: Davis Cup

the cezch's named their team yesterday and it had 5 players. is that the norm for semi finals? i thought it was still 4 players. if we are able to name 5 there is pretty much no debate as to who they will be. who play's is a whole different story though

also of interest to note is that tipsarevic was not named to the team in the round of 16 or the quarters this year, does anybody know why? form? injury? sitting out?
