I don't find it understandable. Winning DC is a higher achievement for Ferrer than anything else he'll ever do---wouldn't that make it exciting for a fan?

I personally like it because it's another chance for me to see my favorite NBA player talk about tennis, since he's from Spain and good friends with Ferrer and Nadal.

When JMDP said their team was going to pull Rafa's underwear out of his ass, Gasol responded with, we'll see whose pants will be dropping. He said something nice about Delpo first, but it's international events like this that make him break out of just being nice 100% of the time, and I relish that.

Masters > Davis Cup > 500, IMO.

Normally I'd agree, but as you said, when Ferrer played DC, he had to go through the likes of Berdych, if not even tougher opponents. Who did he beat in Paris? Also I'm biased because my appreciation of Ferrer is skewed by my love of Gasol, and it's clear which is more important in his eyes. In other words, don't mind me.

On that note, my home country only has one elite tennis player, and she's a woman....

I love this tournament, it's chance for small countries to see their home players when there is no ATP

The only thing I don't like about Davis Cup weeks is that there is no ATP level tennis from the Monday to Thursday.

Apart from that I love watching Davis Cup tennis with the partisan crowds, wide variety of surfaces and drama. I prefer it to regular tour level tournaments.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Hold on, you support Delpo, Gulbis, Nalbandian, Haas, and actually know who Gasol is, on a forum where most people seem to find basketball a fix for insomnia. Can I just say that this is awesome?

best of 5 ties sometimes makes it interesting to watch, especially when the competition is high.

But you're dependent of your teammates, it's an unfair disadvantage to lesser tennis countries to rate the Davis Cup higher in an individual sport. A guy like Murray will never be able to win the Davis Cup. Ferrer won both his matches in three sets in last years final, but lost due to his poor teammates.

for the most, though, it's awesome and I love it! like many have said: the emotion, crowds, atmosphere are amazing and sometimes lead to memorable matches.
I don't feel bad for those guys. It's a chance of a lifetime that only Davis cup could provide. Like guy from Benin who got triple breadsticked by Baghdatis. Yeah he got killed but I bet he relished the chance and won't forget the day he got go play Baghdatis.

The Davis Cup is a mess. Not interested until it is completely revamped.

Well basketball has always been my second favorite sport . I watch every game if Pau and Carmelo I can. Wish DAntoni would use him more.
