Don't get me started on this you have 13 singles players in the top 100 and I think about 6 doubs too and some are so talented like Santoro and I think Mathieu is also brilliant although he doens't have the results that he should.
I think Spain has 16 or 17 and about the same amount of doubs players. It shows so much depth when like Monfils doens't make it on to your final squad and Almagro doesn't make it onto a clay side for Spain.
By contrast Andy Murray is a one man squad. We have 1 singles player and 2 doubs players in the top 100
France should certainly win a Davis cup if not this year then soon. I also think realistically even with Nadal around you should have a french slam winner soon.
He might be but at least,you can be 100%(or 99,99) sure that he'll win a GS in the future.
The same can't be said of any of the top french players(and yes,that includes Tsonga).
I'm one of Andy's biggest fans Richie21 but even I wouldn't be arrogant enough to assume he'll win a GS because at the end of the day anything can happen on any given day on a tennis court ... I would reckon Jo and Gael (if Jo can stay clear of injuries and Gael can play well consistently) would have just as good a chance as Andy to win a Slam

am i the only one who missed that he was playing in the semis this year?
Richard has been called for the team, that doesn't necessarily mean he will play. I feel a lot will depend on how the next few days will go. Apparently, Gilles is making a case for himself (See DC-thread).

Gael had him right where he wanted - Richard up a set and a break .
Wonder who will actually play. I'm most curious about the doubles. Monfils and Simon are out, that leaves just Richie (who didn't seem to work too well with Llodra) or Arno. What's the rule about naming the doubles team? Can they replace a player after they name the doubles team? and if they do is that the only replacement they can make?
