DC. Canada with France 4th rubber. Dancevic REPLACING Raonic

Does anyone know what happened with Raonic that is not playing and has been replaced by Dancevic against Tsonga?:confused:

like I said in the Davis Cup thread in the Canada forum, the Doubles Decision of putting Milos in to play with Nestor is becoming more and more of a joke.

A fresher Raonic wouldn't have the same problem with his knee.

A straight sets doubles match shouldn't be that difficult on the body, I don't see why is that a problem, unless he already had problems after the first match?

They must have known his knee was not perfectly fine, as he's been wearing bandage around it for a while. Though I thought it was due to niggling pains or just for precaution. *sigh*

This is getting to be a bad trend in Milos' career. Getting hurt in a less physical doubles match doesn't bode well.
Kind of like the guy on your avatar :sad:

Ouch. That really sucks. I guess it takes a little pressure off Pospisil.

DAMMIT!!! Was really looking forward to this one :sad:.

Poor Milos, but I suppose health comes first. At least we can count on Jo winning his 4th rubber for sure now.

it sounds like it was sometying that wasnt super serious but he just wanted to avoid playing as a precaution. the commentator even said that the davis cup squad themselves were surprised. hmm what if theres some politics going on within the team after the coaches decision to play raonic in doubles instead of pospisil.

i still think canada had a decent shot if raonic played, he could have upset tsonga and popsisil is good enough to beat bennetau or a not 100% monfils.

Surely you don't pull out of a Davis Cup match as a precaution! I'm sure he knows how much the Canadian fans care about him, how much they were looking forward to seeing him play and how disppointed they will be. There must be something seriously wrong with his knee. Otherwise he would play. I had never seen the Canadians so excited about Davis Cup before.

I hope he gets better soon. I hate injuries.

agreed, but i thought the commentator was saying something like he was out last year for 4 months and he doesnt want something like that after he has had such a great start to the season. dancevic is really doing well tho so far, fighting hard.

Laurendeau is an idiot. Raonic had some knee issues while training in Toronto even before going into the first match. Save him for the 2 singles matches.
Instead, let's take a guy with some knee trouble, put him in doubles where he's not familiar, and make his knee start and stop a whole bunch for 2+ hours.
