No Llodra...
Hope Monfils will be fit enough for the event..

At least w/ Gasquet & Tsonga out of USO, they will be fit!

France should win imo but Berdy and Stepanek seem to peak for Davis Cup! Tough to call

This will be an interesting tie. At this part of the year, it is very important how fit are the players.

The French team may have a slight edge with Tsonga and Monfils and the way they've been playing lately. However as redkop said Berdych and Stepanek have performed so well in Davis Cup.

My guess is Monfils is being saved for crucial rubber 5. (Can't see him playing doubles). With all his unpredictability, I'd still want him rather than Gasquet in a winner take all match.
