Default Re: Argentina vs Great Britain - 2008WG 1st Round

Obviously Argentina are the heavy favourites but I just hope that GB can push them all the way.. Neither Boggo/Baker will win a set against any of the Argentinian picks so hopefully Andy and Jamie can pull through and produce their best amidst the chaos that you always expect to ensue in DC clashes held in Argentina.

I've gone for 4-1 to Argentina but there is a chance that GB [if it was to be 'the' perfect weekend] could pull out a 3-2 win.

Come on Team GB

Anyway I think Argentina will win 3-2.
It's Clay, so Murray won't play his best.

2007 Clay Results for Murray:

Rome R1: lr. Simon 1-6 6-1 3-6
Hamburg R1: lt. Volandri 5-1 RET.

2006 results:

Montecarlo R1: lt. Lisnard 6-4 6-7(5) 5-7 ()
Barcelona R1: def. Granollers Pujol 4-6 6-4 6-2
Barcelona R2: lt. Ferrer 6-4(5) 6-7 1-6
Rome R1: lt. Volandri 4/6 4/6
Hamburg R1; def. Monfils 6/4 6/1
Hamburg R2: lt. Blake 3/6 3/6
Roland Garros R1: lt. Monfils 4-6 7-6(2) 6-1 2-6 1-6


I think he would lose to any of the argentinean players.

The Argies should win this handily against the Scottish team.

Actually it's probably more accurate to call it the 'the Ukraine & Scotland Squad'.

Probably a confusion with the Canadian born of Ukrainian ancestry and British citizenship Greg Rusedski.

Great Britain should call Rusedski and Henman

Oh yes of course..

I had just been reading about GB's Fed Cup team, and Baltacha is from the Ukraine so that must have caused that train of thought..

I'd like to change my prediction to 4-1 at best..

Is it even worth playing it now!?
