It will probably be Tsonga-Pospisil and Monfils(Sounds like he is going to give it a go)-Raonic on Day 1 and then switched around on Day 3.

"The number one ranked player of each team shall play against the number two ranked player of the opposing team on the first day, and the order of play shall be decide by lot. The number one ranked player of each team shall play the third singles match. The number two ranked players shall play the fourth singles match."

which means it will be the first match on Sunday, if the tie isn't decided by then. :unsure:

if tsonga loses this match he should retire because it would mean raonic can do everything tsonga does but better.

Rubber 4.
Tsonga and Raonic are the top players of their respective teams, so Rubber 3. I remember now because of the Davis Cup final last year -- the two highest ranked players take the stage on the 3rd Rubber; Rafa and del Potro.

Edit: Your right, it's Rubber 4 :eek:.

Yeah, except Tsonga can crush Hewitt while Raonic can't even make a dent on the washed-up bogan :eek:.

The 3rd rubber is the doubles.

There are match-up issues though. Compared with Hewitt who is a great returner, Tsonga vs. a big server is a different story. How handily Tsonga can crush Hewitt is irrelevant to this encounter, IMO.
