Spain drop Ferrero for Cup final
DAVIS CUP FINAL

Final schedule


Spanish captain Jordi Arrese sprang a major surprise by dropping Juan Carlos Ferrero from the side to face the United States in the Davis Cup final.

Carlos Moya will open play against Mardy Fish at 1100 GMT on Friday, followed by Andy Roddick against Ferrero's replacement Rafael Nadal.

Ferrero has struggled with injuries all year but insists he is "100% fit".

Nadal and Tommy Robredo meet Mike and Bob Bryan in Saturday's doubles, before the reverse singles on Sunday.

"It was certainly a surprise not to be picked," said Ferrero. "Physically I am at 100% and I have had three days of good training.

"Obviously I am not jumping up and down with happiness, but you have to take things as they come."

Ferrero's replacement was equally taken aback at his selection.
"I'm a bit surprised, but I feel I am ready," said Nadal.

"It will be complicated against the world number two and I will have to be at my best."

The team captains can change the line-up an hour before the match and Ferrero has not ruled out returning for Sunday's singles.

"Of course I want to see myself on the court on Sunday," he said.

Roddick admitted: "Personally, I was expecting to play Ferrero.

"But at the same time I think our team knows that they have four very capable singles players and that's one of their strengths."

And US captain Patrick McEnroe warned against any complacency.

"It wasn't a surprise," he said. "Nadal is going to be a great player, but we have a great opportunity here to show what we can do."

Ranked 51st in the world, the 18-year-old Nadal has far less experience than former French Open champion Ferrero, who was part of Spain's last Davis Cup winning side in 2000.

However, the fiesty Nadal has impressed in his first full year on the tour and is one of only four players to have beaten Roger Federer in 2004.

Nadal, who is Spain's youngest ever Davis Cup player, also won the deciding match against the Czech Republic in February, and clinched victory in the semi-finals against France.

Spain remain favourites to take the title thanks in large part to the slow clay court that has been laid in Seville's revamped Olympic Stadium.

Despite a season which has had so many incidents that you've gone from number 1 to number 31, there's never been question you'd not play the singles. Why is that?
Because I've always been dedicated to the Davis cup. It's a competition in which I always give my all, because I love it. And I don't usually disappoint
oooh i love that 'and i dont usually disappoint'. pity the spanish captains dont c itthat way.

im so gutted for him. SO SO SO gutted. i felt like crying when i found out. ive been in a really thick mood since i found out.

Just think - he comes up on Sunday and wins the decisive rubber!!!...Would not that be great?!....I just hope he's not having any physical probs right now. But in any case, whats most important is that Spain wins the Cup, and if Moya and Nadal are the ones to do it, it's also great.Espana!!

That would be great coz then he'd be the hero and this would definately TOP his year and hopefully he'll hav a great 2005. but even if he doesnt play (which is a huge huge shame) and Spain still win, then I guess it's not so bad. but I woul really like to see him play and show that he is 100% fit.

Good luck Spain in DC!!

Default Re: Davis Cup

Yeah I am also very deeply disappointed about Juan Carlos not playing. They kept on egging us on with all these good articles like Ferrero or bust and stuff like that. Now I sort of hope that it will go to a 5th rubber and he will play and WIN and be hero once again. Then again, if Nadal is the hero, I guess that is okay too. Everyone needs their chance I guess.

Vamos Espana!
