Ok, I checked the rulebook again today because I remember this is not the case last year and recognized I interpret it wrong.

Under team nomination, 10 days before the commencement of the tie, following should be nominated by each team.

A team of a minimum of three and a maximum of four which shall include the nomination of a playing Captain; or
A team of a minimum of four and a maximum of five which shall include the nomination of a non-playing Captain

Since Canada's captain is not a player, the team can have a maximum of four players.

Before the draw, the four players were Raonic, Pospisil, Dancevic and Nestor.

The rules allow two of the nominated players to be changed up to one hour before the draw and that's when Canada replaced Raonic with Polansky.

Since the four players nominated did not include Shamasdin, team Canada could only replace Pospisil by either Dancevic or Polansky.

Default Re: Davis Cup

yeah, I would've thought so; otherwise we would see more 5-man teams.
I think changing the rules to expand DC teams to 5 players would be a good idea.

I agree. It's not right that injured players be forced to play because there aren't healthy replacements who can play, nor is it right that one player must play three matches. It's been hard enough to make DC relevant to the top players. And the top 20 players might play more still if they would only have to play one match, because the roster was fuller.

Canada plays Columbia in Canada in September to maintain its spot in the world group. Columbia has good singles and doubles players. Canada will need a full healthy team for this one.

Canada's tie against Colombia is a toss up.

If Vashy and Milos are having an off day during the tie, the Colombian singles players can beat them, ditto with their doubles team. I would say this match up is a bit even.

I think it's a good matchup for Canada assuming we have our team - which is likely as it's right after the US Open in similar surface.

Strong rumors about the Colombia tie being played in the Maritimes, possibly Halifax.

Default Re: Davis Cup

I'm all in favour of ties being played outside of the three main cities. On Daviscup.com, Canada is the only team that hasn't announced its venue. Canada has a better chance on an indoor court, but I doubt they would put a September tie indoors.

At any rate, Raonic and Nestor have had good seasons so far. Pospisil is showing signs of snapping out of his slump. I expect a strong team for the September tie. The Columbians are playing well too. Ten weeks to go.

Default Re: Davis Cup

arash madani said Halifax would be the site. the davis cup main page just posted a story saying it will be at the 11 000 seat metro centre on indoor hard. will be interesting to see what the crowd is like. the tennis canada website says capacity will be limited to 4500 seats, wonder if they will increase that if demand warrants it(especially if milos makes a deep run at the us open)

i can see a good turnout as those in the maritimes dont get a chance to see milos that often.

I find it disturbing that Nestor lost 6-2, 6-2 to Cabal in Washington. At any rate, Nestor, Raonic and Pospisil are playing well enough to be considered heavy favourites against Columbia on an indoor court. Five weeks to go.

Default Re: Davis Cup

Looks like the team has been announced. Team will consist of Raonic, Pospisil, Dancevic and Nestor. Colombia's team is Cabal, Farah, Giraldo and Falla.

So my guess for matchups will be,
Friday - singles
Rubber 1: Raonic v. Falla
Rubber 2: Pospisil v. Giraldo
Saturday - doubles
Rubber 3: Nestor/Pospisil v. Cabal/Farah
Sunday - singles
Rubber 4: Raonic v. Giraldo
Rubber 5: Pospisil v. Falla

I say we win this tie.
