Nice touch with national anthems being sung by two little girls. For once our organizers did something right.

Smart choice to keep the win streak alive. Playing the Nole open rather than Monte Carlo and skipping Davis Cup were very smart decisions. Whether one thinks having a win streak in which you only play events you're likely to win is impressive is another matter though :eek:

They'll prob be idiots and play Djokovic in dubs again and lose for that reason. PLAY TIPSAREVIC, getting a good crowd is not worth losing the tie over.

Smart move for Djokovic to sit. Brutal weekend in NYC and also the press tour on Tuesday, he needs a well deserved rest. They are counting on Troiki to rise to the occasion but Nalbandian is a dangerous adversary especially in Davis Cup. Nole will be ready on Sunday but the tie could be over after doubles. ARG has got to be thrilled to see Nole out.

They could be, and I agree with Snowwy in that they would still have a very good chance to come back and win. Not sure they could be labelled as favourites in that position (especially if Dave is fresh enough to play doubles), but they couldn't be written off.

If Djokovic takes to the court on Sunday, you'd expect him to win.
Tipsarevic's level at the US Open was scary, and he'd be a comfortable favourite to beat Dave based on that.

Argentina absolutely need that 2-0 lead today though imo. Troicki can still easily come back (currently a set down), but hopefully Dave will keep his composure as this is a nice match-up for him. Tipsarevic is dangerous, but if Serbia are 0-1 then it is a real pressure match for him and I'd almost expect Del Potro to capitalise.
