TIE PREVIEW

France and Argentina have met on four previous occasions and the Argentines are attempting to defeat France for the first time ever in Davis Cup. The two nations met at Roland Garros in 1952, 1955 and 1960 before the South Americans hosted the French in their last meeting in the 1982 World Group first round in Buenos Aires. Yannick Noah sealed the win for France by beating Ricardo Cano in the decisive fifth rubber.

This is the opponents’ first clash on hard court. Both teams reached this year’s semifinals by winning their first two rounds on indoor hard. Argentina had a more difficult route into the semifinals, with both ties going down to the fifth rubber, while France won both its ties with a day to spare.

France is competing in the semifinals for the first time since 2004, and Argentina for the sixth time in the last nine years. Argentina has reached the Davis Cup Final three times but is yet to lift the trophy, while France is a nine-time Davis Cup champion, most recently in 2001.

David about Davis Cup:

Q: Do you forget about the US Open now and move on to the Davis Cup?

David: No, I just finished here. I'm not yet thinking about the Davis Cup.

Q: Monfils, Simon and Llodra have been confirmed [as being part of the French team]. Gasquet and Clement are now competing for a place on the team and they'll nominate Benneteau as fifth player, to see if he recovers from his wrist injury. What do you think?

David: Makes no difference to me. I'm going to play who I'm going to play. France has a very even team. The important thing is that we get there, well-prepared.

Q: You're going to be #29 or #30 now in the ranking.

David: That was the goal I set for myself for the end of this year. Now I've already achieved that... That's what's positive.

Can we conclude that David will play in all situations?
Or only in singles?

I suppose Zeballos/Schwank will play double ??? It'll depend of the results after the first 2 singles. If it's 1/1, David will probably play double to have more chance to win it ?

"Francia es más difícil que Rusia"

"France is more difficult than Russia"
http://www.lanacion.com.ar/nota.asp?nota_id=1302491
Google (poor) translation
-------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------


Tito Vazquez defined the team: Monaco, Nalbandian, Zeballos Schwank and play next week for a place in the final of the tournament, even with "low key", the captain knows it will be a tough opponent. By Maximiliano Boso / THE NATION
September 8, 2010 - 00:59
Tito Vazquez hopes to lead Argentina to the quarter final of Davis Cup history - Maximiliano Boso ArchivoPor
THE NATION

Form a Davis Cup team is never a minor decision, but sometimes the equipment is more sung than others. If this time there were many more assurances that the presence of David Nalbandian, U.S. Open moved the shelf as a few times. For that and other reasons the determination of Modesto Vazquez was not either. To measure with France between 17 and 19 of the current, next week, those elected were Juan Monaco (32 of the ranking), David Nalbandian (33 °), Eduardo Schwank (57 °) and Horacio Zeballos (61 °). Along the way were Leonardo Mayer and Juan Ignacio Chela.

Federico Delbonis as sparring, will travel tomorrow, with the coaching staff and Monaco, while Nalbandian will join in the scale of Madrid, and Zeballos Schwank and when they finish their participation in the U.S. Open.

In a multitude of options, the most concrete and it seems that Monaco will be Nalbandian and Schwank-Zeballos singlistas double. Thus, Nalbandian will play No. 2 and an eventual fifth point, as it happened in previous installments of obligation, because their ranking was too low. However, any outside Monaco singlista this time would give Nalbandian the No. 1 and the possibility of playing the first game on Sunday. Even if this possibility could be Schwank Zeballos or play singles the first day. Of course that would remove Monaco for singles, because the No. 1 real one can not replace lower ranking.

Of course this is speculation with no results. And Tito Vazquez knows, as he said yesterday in an interview with La Nacion. "First I thought the players who are to form part of the team. Leo is going through a no confidence, had the clarity to say he was not mentally prepared for the series, which would not be good for the team. Chela is more focused on the circuit playing five-set Davis, with that responsibility, but it was one of the few considered until the last minute to join the team. Pico has credit, often played by the delivery was important. In Ostrava, had a decent game against Berdych, two sets to one up and 2-1 in the fourth. "

- But what happens if you reach the fifth item?

"Do not talk of assumptions, I hope we get to the fifth point, we'll see who plays. Sometimes, the second singlistas have changed. We'll see how we are there, who is best and what happens. No matter who is one or two, regardless of who can beat whom. The team is determined, then I go day after day. There are five hard points and each player has to play their best to work with some point.

"So the logic that it is Nalbandian 2 of the team so far was good.

-Mayer won a singles point in Stockholm and won the doubles in Russia. What is the logic?

- Do you feel that you are still having a bit of luck? Tsonga Benneteau will not either.

"Without doubt they are important players. It is also hard to say something because we have to see what happens that day. For us it is important that Schwank and Zeballos are winning in doubles at the U.S. Open. Hopefully they are on track to become an important partner because it is a team game and you have to play as many games as possible to understand you with your partner with your eyes closed. All five games can lose or win. France is definitely the favorite. The statistics say: we won all four times. You should go with the humility of long talk the day after, and work and not be looking if he wins this or that. It is thought, but more important is the team. And the good news is that we will be together for several days before the series, as we do in Ostrava.

- Is there anything like the series with Russia now? It seems more accessible than before.

"No, France is deeper than Russia. It has a double replacement stronger and more important. With Spain are the two largest players have a certain level. To me it's more difficult for Russia.

- Sweat a lot with everything that happened?

"Unfortunately, this was the parameter since we started to drink and, fortunately, now I went to France, something that had not happened to the rest of the teams.

I'll take a page out of Stephan's book and ask all fans to vote for Argentina to win the Davis Cup: Serbia is so far the big favorite and blowing all the other choices out, but if Del Potro could come back in time for the Final (assuming Argentina gets past France )....

I'm trying my best to explain how Nalby can take out the entire country of France. He needs Del Pony's help against Serbia though.
