Dlouhy is playing Challengers not up to top level anymore. They have won 11/12 doubles ties and they play well together. There is your reason.

Have you seen Rosol volleying and returning?

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Berdych/Stepanek. If Nadal played vs. Stepanek on the first day and played the doubles, it would leave Ferrer to win one of his 2 matches. Might be easier than wanting Nadal to play 2 best of 5 singles including vs Berdych.

Then again, most likely is Nadal won't want his first tournament back to be the DC final. Lack of match practice would show...

Have they faced a team as good as the Spanish team and beat them with Berdych playing all three rubbers? It's easy enough to say look at it from a statistical point of view, but the reality is we know Stepanek almost certainly won't win either of the singles matches so if you force Berdych to play the doubles as well you are asking him to perform a miracle if the Czech's are to win.

Let's say that Nadal is fully fit to play, can you envisage a situation where Berdych could play a BO5 on Friday vs Ferrer/Nadal and win, win the doubles on Saturday, then play a singles match vs Nadal/Ferrer on the Sunday and win? No chance.

He was looking exhausted halfway through the third set today against Berlocq despite the fact they'd blown Schwank and Berlocq away in the doubles.

It won't matter Berdych/Stepanek play well together as a unit. Navratil is not going to change a winning formation is he. They beat Fed/Allegro from 2 sets down, only team they lost was to Verdasco/Lalo on clay.

Berdych came from the US Open and had to adjust to clay in Argentina, lets see that played a role this weekend.

That's their best combo pure and simple.

I fancy the Czechs' chances here. The Spaniards have poor records on indoor surfaces, and the Czechs will probably go for broke with the home team advantage. Stepanek is not getting any younger, so they better not blow this chance.

Fastest court that can be built by human engineering.

Big Berd and Rosol for singles

Berd/Steps for doubles


that plan gives ROAST

Would love Rafa to smash Berdych and make the 'shhhh' gesture to the Czech public. Although he has waaaaay too much class for that obviously

Does anyone seriously believe that Nadal would rush back to play this tie knowing that it will be on a lightening quick indoor court?

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!
