Bah, cakewalk for Italy.

 

On the other hand, the most interesting tie is between Germany and Czech Republic. Berdych is a big plus for the Czechs, but I hope Davis Cup will provide some surprise.

As expected, even Hong (who won three Futures in Turkey over the last few weeks) was too strong for Statham. South Korea should become great power in men's tennis in upcoming years with, at least, 3-4 highly talented youngsters.

Back on WTA, Kontaveit with two great back to back wins over Cibulkova and Errani :yes

Yes Korea have good prospective players but for me USA have 4-5 great talent in their hand...

USA are on the way to their old glory days! I hope most of their young players will pass the transition to senior tennis, like Fritz is doing lately. Great depth of players, most of them born in 1996-1998 span. 

Fritz, Paul, Tiafoe, Kozlov, Opelka, Mmoh, Donaldson...

I was delighted with Fritz's performance in Memphis and Acapulco. That guy is great, and I expect him in top 50 very soon.

Hantuchova was given a MDWC for Indian Wells... :wall:I understand she has won that event two times, but she didn't deserve to get it.

Ram, Fritz, McDonald, Del Potro and Tiafoe on men's side and Watson, Riske, Hantuchova, Davis, Crawford, Shuai Zhang, Rogers, Loeb on women's with MDWCs along with Sharapova's withdrawal...

Tiafoe will become first player born in 1998 to play at some ATP Masters 1000 event.

I am glad to see Durasovic succeeded to win. Norway have two great potentials, Viktor Durasovic and Casper Ruud. I hope both of them make top 100. 

I haven't heard of this boy, Christian Sigsgaard, he's either good or Basilashvili was in complete error mode. Huge surprise there, given the fact Georgia is a host. But also, I am wondering was it smart to choose carpet... It will suit Nielsen the best lol

What a return for Nieminen, 6-0 6-0 6-0 :d

Kinda expected result in SRB-KAZ tie, Kazakhstani players are really something different in Davis Cup (the Netherlands of Davis cup, lol)

Now, cheering for Zverev with all heart :cheer: 

 

Sabine.... no words -.-

I thought GER-CZE tie could be the most entertaining and I am glad I was right. Two five setters! Pity Zverev lost. If he only won that first set.... He had more points than Berdych, but we all know it is not deciding factor. I hope he can learn from this match. Tomorrow is the crucial match. If Germans win, I believe Zverev can deliver the third point.

Well, I definitely didn't foresee Italy to struggle this much against weakened Switzerland!

I think that Nicka was error mode :mad: I don't remember when last time he won match... Todays match showed how bad he is in this season.

Btw. I think that Argentina already can celebrate win in whole meeting, key match was Przysiężny - Pella and Michał sadly lost it...
