How do you handle the pressure of beating a number 1 player on Centre Court at Wimbledon and not be able to handle the pressure of Davis Cup? Bitter and deluded hater today, but this comment is just

If I were the Czechs, I'd pick an ultrafast surface, play Stepanek and a doubles specialist in dubs, Berdych both days, Stepanek against Ferrer, and Rosol against Nadal

How the things are looking now, CZE is every day bigger favorit - it looks like Rafa won´t play after all, his statements and everything - also how Stepanek played in Shanghai, he is looking good for match vs Spaniards, he definitely if rested and pushed by crowd can win 1 match in singles-Ferrer,Almagro, Lopez, Verdasco and don´t know who else pontetially can play, definitely are beatable vs Stepanek with crowd behind him indoors on fast surface. And than Berdych of course needs to play well and beat anybody who will stands vs him.

I don't know if Czechs have any better doubles player than Berdych to pair Stepanek. And usually both Berdych and Stepanek have played all three rubbers, and I think that it's not too much at least for Berdych. But I might consider Rosol for Friday, to rest Stepanek, especially if Rafa is in the Spanish team because Steps/Rosol would then be Rafa's Friday opponent, and that'd be sure loss for Stepanek. But if Rafa would be in the Spanish team, yet not playing in Friday, I'd substitute Rosol to Stepanek. Ferrer would then be Stepanek's opponent, and I think Radek could have a chance. And Czechs must not rely too much on winning doubles and Berdych winning both his matches, also Spain have a good doubles team.

You can make some conclusions about the speed of DC final's surface this weekend when Fed Cup final is played in the same arena on the same surface. Only difference is that FC final's ball is Wilson Tour Davis Cup, DC final's ball is Head ATP.

Spain will still win.

Ferrer will win both his matches and Granollers/Lopez will win the doubles.

I think it is very open, Ferrer will be maybe physically down after Paris and WTF, but we all know his DC record - Berdych the same story, but worse DC record, home crowd could be factor here.

Almagro recently played good in Paris, he could be threat on fast surface with his backhand and strong serve.

I don´t know really, I feel it is all about whether which Berdych will show up.
