Why Davis cup sucks..

Tennis is an individual sport and the challenge of playing tennis professionally is to handle poor form, bad line calls, crowd's antagonism and Hawkeye alone on the court.

What Davis cup brings to this equation is rigged courts, heavily skewed support, a coach who can easily be mistaken for a survivor series captain and when the home team wins (most likely, unless it sucks badly) the players can feel patriotic and display team spirit which is alien to the game itself. In reality, all they managed to do was waste people's time and money playing five glorified exhibition matches that decides the winner according to who sucked less on a given day. Just like the test series in cricket that happens around the world. They are all rigged heavily in favour of the home team.

I don't even understand how coaches in Davis cup matches sit on the side of the court and still be able to offer unsolicited advice to the players during a game. What can they possibly observe from the game sitting there?

That brings the focus to Rod-dick, who fresh off his customary double penetration from Federer and Ferrer announced that winning a Davis Cup was his dream. By teaming up with a 'fellow Federer bitch', James Blake, the dick/prick hopes to make heavy weather of favourable conditions to win this pointless cup and harbour delusions of being successors to the legend of Sampras and Agassi when they won it last in 95.

There should, however, be no doubt as to where my loyalties lie in the Davis cup final that starts this friday. Russian women are infinitely hotter and poorer that makes my chance to land a hot blonde girlfriend that much greater. Besides, Russian tennis players are way better than the ones that come out of the shithole called USA.

For all my antagonism towards Davis cup, I am for this recently blossoming travesty that calls itself the Hopman Cup. For one, it gives an inside view of who in the ATP is sleeping with in the WTA. Richard Gasquet probably with Tatiana Golovin, who is not a stunner by any definition but definitely way hotter than the disgusting Mirka that Federer flaunts around. Hopefully Gasquet will only get better from here.

Why Davis Cup is great

It presents a different challenge to the players as tennis on the regular tour.

You get to see how players respond to the pressure of playing for their country and for their team mates. Some might rise to the occasion and some might crumble, while some can play well in front of a home crowd but not with the crowd cheering against them. Some players play better having more support in the bench. The additional pressure of needing to win matches to keep your country in contention. Your country is down 1-0 on the first day and the next rubber is pretty much a must-win, etc.

Great atmosphere. Completely different challenge playing home and away - playing in front of your home country cheering loudly for you or trying to block out the noise of the crowd or prove a point to them. Seeing players show more emotion and the celebrations afterwards. Giving lower-ranked players the chance to be heroes and in front of large crowds. Doubles players playing matches that a lot of people care about. Interesting doubles pairings that wouldn't happen outside of Davis Cup.

The challenge of playing in conditions that are completely against you on ice rinks or slow clay, the opportunity of getting a win with everything against you. The pressure of winning when everything is supposedly in your favour.

Team selection - putting together the right team for the tie given present form, how players respond in Davis Cup, matchups, last minute changes.

Your an absolute mug.

DC has value and acually means something to the players. Even guys like Fat Dave when they were not playing so well played Davis Cup because they love it.

To say that it sucks so blunty, you have a problem my friend.

Difficult in 2008, as Gasquet plays Adelaide at the same time and Monfils plays the Hopman Cup. ;)
