But I think they would choose a slow one, as it's better for Wawrinka and worse for Stepanek.

Wawrinka often gives problems to Berdych by the way. He leads the H2H 5-4 (3-4 on hardcourts, 0-3 indoors)
Do you think there's any chance they could play on clay? It's Wawrinka's favourite surface and it would almost certainly mean Stepanek won't get a win. I would arguably fancy Federer a lot more on clay vs Berdych than on a hard court too.

I have to say you are extremely well informed and I enjoy reading your posts.

I don't think you would be. I don't see Tipsy necessarily winning a tie so it would rely on Djokovic to win both and a doubles win. Obviously Zimonjic is world class but would whoever you pair him up with be a much better combination that what the Spanish could offer? Doubtful.

it's possible, but this year they did that against the USA and the court was very hard with a lot of bad bounces because the hall was only prepared for the tie and it was very cold in the previous weeks.

Lüthi had to spend time on court with other guys to try to make the court less hard, and it was still very hard in the end, with many bad bounces.

They didn't enjoy the experience at all.

Ps : I read the French-speaking Swiss media on the web but they've said nothing about the choice of surface yet.

We got 2nd best no2 behind Spain and best no1 player (Murray not in the world group, Rafa - who knows?, Roger is not taking DC too seriously, so no question about that). And Spain (and Switzerland if we both get to the final) would have to come to Serbia so we pick the surface and have home crowd behind us. Novak would favourited to get 2 points and in DC at home Tipsarevic plays his best matches, I would favoure him over Ferrer. Anywhere else, Ferrer would be the favourite, but in Belgrade on indor hard with home crowd behind him, I would pick Janko. And we have 50-50% chance in doubles, I would say we are the favourites overall. And knowing Rafa, maybe he won't even play till eventual final, so Janko would have to beat Almagro (Verdasco).

Worst case scenario, we would be no2 favourites and you can't say that no2 favourites are 'dark horses'.

Now it's a bunch of futures players against a fallen giant.

If Davydenko plays then GB should pick grass.

No way Nadal will play that tie. It'll be in Calgary and the serves will be flying.

Chance for Fed to get some revenge on Berdych. With it being a home tie and during European season I think he'll play it. Steps ain't getting any younger either so there's chances for Stan as well.

Russian team seems to be in a shit and I don't think the old stars like Davydenko and Youzhny will play in Group I now.

Davydenko and Youzhny didn't play the play-off and they only played the double in first round.

Youzhny had announced he stopped Davis cup 2 years ago, letting youngsters play.
Davydenko seldom played in late years.

It seems that the Russians have a big problem with the Davis cup team as Tarpischev even announced Kuznetsov and Donskoy in Brazil ... whereas in the end it was Gabashvili and another one ! Kuznetsov and Donskoy seemed to be focused on other tournaments and didn't come (they would have been better choices than Gaba and Bogo on clay).

Awesome. I hope Federer plays so Berdych can kick his ass once more before the old fucker checks in to a retirement home.

as Darcis said, the seeding system in Davis cup means that for unseeded countries hence emerging countries, there were only 2 good draws : Kazakhstan and Croatia (which meant meeting Spain or Czech Republic in quarters by the way)

The 6 other seeds are all very solid teams.

Still, Brazil would probably have liked to play at home to offer something nice to the spectators, as Belgium now hopes Djokovic will come.
