Default The Davis Cup final ...

Will be played on clay in Paris Bercy

I think clay is a good surface for the French players

Do you think Santoro will play the singles because he has a good record against Safin ??? ... i don't know

I don't know how many matches Clement has won or lost to Safin but yes I think Santoro playing Safin the Friday is a possibility, with Arnaud replacing him to play Kafelnikov on Sunday.
Grosjean would play the 2 other singles.

The doubles would be either Santoro/Llodra or Santoro/Pioline or maybe Escude/Clement, since they are regular partners on tour. Sontoro/Escude sounds more unlikely but who knows.

But it also depends who is going to be in form, playing the best in practice and if anybody gets injured, the choice will be reduced.

Default Head to head

Clement/Safin: 0/1 (0/0 on clay)
Clement/Kafelnikov: 3/4 (1/0 on clay)

Santoro/Safin: 6/1 (1/0 on clay)
Santoro/Kafelnikov: 0/6 (0/1 on clay)

Grosjean/Safin: 2/4 (1/1 on clay)
Grosjean/kafelnikov: 2/3 (0/1 on clay)

Just in case:
Escude/Safin: 3/1 (0/0 on clay)
Escude/Kafelnikov: 1/5 (1/0 on clay)


And let's not forget that the Russian team also has Youzhny.

about final: i would have chosen carpet cos Kafelnikov won RG and Safin played pretty good on clay this year.instead they never played good on carpet.
playing on clay,it means that grosjean and clement will play singles for sure,and maybe santoro will play a single match on sunday-i doubt he'll play on friday cos it would be too tiring for him playing single and double the day after.i dunno who'll be santoro's partner in double since pioline is almost retired and llodra played very bad last week.

Yes Lindsay fan, i'm new on this board and i'm French

I don't know why they have choosen Paris to play the final...but the reason you mentioned is probably the right one, i think
Grosjean was born in Marseille ... it could have been great for him to play there

Hi Lindsayfan

I've been once in Italia , i have visited Roma and the aera of Napoli and the Vesuvio ... i have some great memories from there

I like Guy Forget too...i don't have a lot of memories of him as a tennis player because i wasn't following tennis at that time...i'm a recent tennis fan (2000)

The others players i like are Corretja, Ferrero, Blake, Roddick, Kuerten, Ivanisevic, Sampras,Gambill and of course the French players !!!
I've noticed that there isn't a lot of Italian players in the top 100 ... tell me if i'm wrong, perhaps i don't know them

"See" you soon

INDO:unfortunately there arent many italian players in top 100,cos in Italy tennis isnt really loved as in France.people here prefer football and Formula one.we have some good female players,but male we have only Sanguinetti in top 100.
so you are a very recent fan,i'm a tennis fan since 1991 (when France won Davis Cup ) and like I said Guy was my fave male player,my fave female player is Lindsay Davenport and she'll always be the n.1 in my heart!
btw..how old r u?r u male or female?i'm 23 and i'm female.ah..my real name is Valeria,urs?

sorry guys if we talk about personal things and not about tennis,but since no one except me and Indo writes here,we r talking a bit about ourselves
