That is great Nitb news and row 6 is superb, please tell Nole that he is the best Magic 

and the final could be with Czechs in Belgrade and Serbs have a lot of to pay back to Czechs from last year. That would be great to watch.

Isn't that a nice welcome lesson to today's tennis from Andy to Coric?

Now Coric will know what he needs to do to get "better"!

Hi Nitb, Nole plays  with Vasek really well  Magic Step leads 2:0 in sets with Monaco and with a break in the third.
so the final Serbia with Czechs is a bit closer Cheers

Step easily went through Monaco 3:0 and Berd with L. Mayer 3:1 in sets. So far the semi is going really well for Czechs..

Day 2 iandit's doubles time, still mo idea who is playing, the only guaranteed players will be Nestor and Zimonjic but this time playing against each other...
Saw in he paper that Troicki is not allowed into Arena, even as a spectator; how sad and pathetic...

Atmosphere in Arena even crazier than yesterday diva
Zimonjic/Boziljac ( who scored the amazing win over Brian brothers in previous round) playing Nestor/ Pospisil.
Early break for Serbia, Canadian fans look really pro and well coordinated.
Wonderful skillful tenns and some amazing reaction time and superb voleying from 41 year old Nestor.
Zimonjic, 36, has a brilliant SBH flat return, he could give Roger a lesson in that shot!
Doubles are so underrated and a real breath of fresh air in this age of physical athletic baseline-fest

That was a great set of tennis right down to a see-saw of a tiebreak.
Some exquisite volleying from Zimonjic, the match is real fun to watch esp. live.

Czechs lead 3:0 with Argentna and already wait for their opponents for the second consequent final.
I wish Janko to win his match with Vasek tomorrow, although Vasek is my favorite player from all youngsters. That could be another five setters, the third. Not easy task for Janko tomorrow.

Absolutely Big Grin. I will check Nole`match now and then and then  I will look at the Tips with Vasek.  I really like the way Vasek plays, all court gutsy tennis with a cool head.
It is not a long time when Vasek considered playing for Czechs. He spent a lot of time playing in Czech r. with  our best  players. He lived not far away from my place. I expect he is going to move up at ranking very soon. 

So, that match will be his greatest for now, really looking forward to it.

I like Vasek as well.
Him and Zimonjic played the nicest tenns of all players this weekend.
Vasek is better than Raonic, strikes the ball very smoothly and great at the net, very pleasant temper, too.
Raonic is not bad, but really 1D even now against Nole hsppy to rally for ever from the baseline, even on his serve, there is no way he is going to last the match in that mode.
A d as I type this Nole breaks diva !!!!

Fire brigade is going to wake up !! sleepy 

That is different when Nole plays by his heart, great job done by Nole. musicalnote 

The five match will be monstrous. If the score is tight, then Tipsy is going to have difficult times.
I want to Tipsy win, but like Vasek`s game, so headhurts

Milos does not run on the court, but he shifts from side to side. His tennis is unwatchable for me. But there is another  one, who is nobody able to overcome in this aspect Winking

Canada equaled its the best result in Davis cup, which is semi (the first time they played in 1913). So, quite long time to wait to repeat it.

I can't wait to see Tipsarevic play Stepanek, esp after their last DC "handshake" Laugh

As for Petra...I am not surprised. After that 16 year old toyboy, she must have realised that nothing beats an "oldie's" charm.

Big Grin exactly, "oldie's" horses charm is nobody to beat.Step is already classic in chasing tennis women players in our waters Whistle 

Petra's game fluctuates in the same way as her boyfrends' style Big Grin

This first set seems to be the key. If Vasek is broken in the second then I think Tips will take it. But Tips is in defense for much time. Quite difficult for Vasek to hold his composure and focus on the game.
Tips looks a bit slower than he used to be, but good on serve and skillful at the net.

Btw, Rosol lost with Zeballos from two matchpoints in three sets (it is played as BO3), nothing surprising.

Tips looks a lot better live than on TV.
He is able to generate a lot of pace both attacking and esp defending, and he is very fast, able to chase down and return some very good drop shots from Vasek.
He may look slow because of the thickness of his legs but is almost always perfectly placed on every ball which is quite something against someone who strikes the ball as well and fast as Vasek.
I feel sorry for Vasek as he has been playing all three days and had a long 5 set doubles match yesterday.
I hope this experience encourages him as he seems to be a really nice guy as well as a player.

Exactly. Tips is quite fast when chasing down the balls with very good anticipation. He plays well focused.

That match is really mentally hard to play for Vasek. But no doubts that it helps him in future.
