Interesting tie against Poland this weekend. Kubot and Przysiezny are both in form at the moment, so it's going to be tough for us. Every match is going to be tightly contested...

Default Re: Davis Cup

will be 50/50 i think. Jarkko looked better the last weeks and Henka has good results on hardcourts/indoors. Kubot is only claycourter mostly i think?

Kubot can play well on hard also. They have the advantage in doubles as they have a specialist pair and can rest their singles players on Saturday.

Awesome that the giraffe and Coetzee are not playing for SA. So Jarkko will be clear fave twice and Kontinen has a solid chance against any South African.

Default Re: Davis Cup

Finland is down 0-2 to South Africa on the road after the first days ties, with Heliovaara losing to Van Der Merwe in 4 sets, and Jarkko losing to De Voest in 5 sets. Kontinen injured his ankle and was forced to miss the first day of action, and may return if Finland gets it to a 5th rubber or potentially doubles tomorrow.

Tomorrow the scheduled line up is Moodie/De Voest (RSA)-Nieminen/Heliovaara (FIN), hopefully the Finnish team can make a huge comeback here!

Default Re: Davis Cup

Finland lost the tie to South Africa 5-0. The fate was sealed when Henri hurt his ankle and Jarkko lost to De Voest. Jarkko and Heliovaara lost 2-6 3-6 4-6 in the doubles to Moodie/De Voest, which was the tie ending win for the South Africans. Very disappointing loss, especially without Anderson and Coetzee on the S.A. team. Jarkko losing to De Voest is pretty inexcusable, but it wouldn't have mattered in the end. They had a good chance to make the world group playoffs, too bad the stars didn't align.

All Finns except Timo were sick/injured on Sunday. I guess it affected Jarkko already on Friday.

Hopefully Laaksonen improves quickly. I guess he can be much better than Harri.

Default Re: Davis Cup

for 2011 Finnland should be 8th or 9th in European Group , depends on Belgium, who still play in Australia..5th rubber...
Poland should overtake the finns in new rankings

if seeded 8th, finnland will have a free pass in 1st round or a tie vs Slovakia, Portugal or Slovenia. All winnable ties. Next round should be much harder..as european group is really good next year..with Italy, Switzerland...Netherlands...Israel...

finland needs home ties to play good!!!

Default Re: Davis Cup

the seeded nations (+ Netherlands I believe) get a bye in the first round, so we'll get either Poland (home), Portugal (draw), Slovak Republic (draw), Slovenia (away) or Ukraine (draw)

from those either prefer anyone but Ukraine...a home tie would be nice of course

In the second round we would face either Israel (home), Switzerland (draw), Italy (home) or South Africa (home).

Quote:
EUROPE/AFRICA ZONE GROUP I

1. ISRAEL
2. SWITZERLAND
3. ITALY
4. SOUTH AFRICA

Remaining Nations: Finland, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Ukraine

Default Re: Davis Cup

Slovenia away it is--...with a win in 2nd round italy waits..tough draw for 2nd round
1st round is really okay..will slovenia choose clay???

Zemlja and KAvcic are their only higher ranked players, 120th and 121th (ranking neighbors)
both prefer clay i think. Will be tough on clay away..but not impossible
