Why all the hype?
Croatia should win pretty comfortably at home if Cilic AND Ljubicic play

First of all Ljubicic won't play the tie.
And then, have you seen Cilic the last 6 months!? Have you seen his match against Mayer (he lost in straights) at Zagreb a week ago? He also lost in straights against Kohlschreiber in Metz last year (also indoor hard).
And Karlovic is in really bad shape, so Dodig will probably play the 2nd singles and nobody knows how he performs in DC.

And Croatia has no doubles team either We're the favs here imo.

IMO it will be a very interesting tie. Cilic is in a big slump, but he still can win matches, we so that against Melzer this week. Dodig is in great form, Karlovic beat Kohlschreiber already this year. Dodig is very good in doubles and if I were Goran Prpic, I'd team him up with Karlovic, they would make a good team. Most probably Cilic and Dodig will play though.
Who is supposed to play for Germany? Kohlschreiber for sure, probably Mayer, but maybe Berrer?

Probably Mayer and Kohlschreiber for singles, the 3rd guy will be Kas I assume and then either Berrer or Petzschner as 4th (other guys like Becker, Kamke are out of form).

Why Kas? He is even ranked behind Dustin Brown in doubles right now.

Petzschner, Kohlschreiber and Mayer should be clear + one other guy. I guess Kohli to play all three days. Does Berrer want to play this year?

Yes, at least Croatian guys confirmed it in Ljubo's forum.

Why not Petzschner / Kas as doubles team? Would be the best if Kohli and Mayer played singles and Petzschner / Kas the doubles. P/K are a good doubles team and so no one has to play al 3 days.

Maybe Berrer, he´s so good indoor.

Petzschner/Kas shall be an interesting double. But do they know each other? Never heard this combination before. And if I look at the results at the moment it's the right decision. Becker, Kamke and Brown do not win anything at the moment. Possibly Berrer but he also played bad this week.

Are you serious? They dominated challengers in 2005-2006, made a US Open quarterfinal later and Stuttgart final last year. They even played WTC for Germany together.

I expect Kohlschreiber/Petzschner though. Kas doesn't deserve to play.

Okay. I'm sorry. Kas was not on my mental list until the end of the last year. As you can see I only follow doubles in the davis cup.
