In the unlikely case Delpo beats Nadal tomorrow, do you think Argentina will sub Nalbandian in for Pico? I mean it makes sense because Nalby has way more talent than Pico. And Pico's first showing of 4 games wasn't too impressive.

If Delpo miraculously wins... they BETTER play NALBY... it would only make sense.

Yeah they'd have to play Nalbandian in this situation. Should've played him against Rafa Friday too! Although there is no way Nalbandian would ever have the stamina to take out Rafa on clay in a best of 5 format.

If he plays,he should play in first match.It would make no sense to play a dead rubber vs Lopez or Verdasco.

I won't vote, because the poll options are rubbish. Dpot will struggle to grab games against Rafa.

No they shouldn't have! This was the best chance for Argentina. Rest Nalbandian in the first day as he wouldn't have had a chance in hell against Nadal, hope Del Po beat Ferrer, win the doubles in eassy fashion and let Nalbandian win the 5th rubber.
If Nalbandian played in the first day we would have been dead tired against Ferrer.

Pointless topic, since Nadal will thrash Del Bashtro.

I was just saying in the hypothetical situation where Rafa loses. Rafa will destroy Delpo with the loss of like 4-8 games
