    Bryans lost in five, not that it will count for much in this tie.

    Rosol did a lot of jumping about just before chiudinellis double fault, I thought it was terrible sportsmanship he really is a piece of work

    I see that Kohlschreiber had to retire with a hamstring injury while leading 5-4 in the fifth set against Berlocq.. Not a nice moment to have to retire and it proves that it was a serious injury. I hope he'll recover quickly and won't be out of the game for a long while.

    Played 5 hours singles two weeks ago and 7 hours doubles now, Wawrinka is a trooper.

    Spain beat the Canadians too. Made it real interesting, adding the same things that happened for Brazil and the Czechs. Hope Grunting Granola beats the lanky Raonic.

    When is it!? Just heard about the doubles match! So crazy, heard Wawrinka saved like 11 match points, I'm starting to think his some sort of match point saver machine LOL

    I'm predicting a score as such -

    7-5 6-4 7-6 6-7 40-38 hahaha, Wawrinka wins it while saving 20 matchpoints!

    Is it possible to have Spain VS Switzerland in the WG Playoffs or do they have to play those who advanced from Group I? Seems like Federer got some work to do in September.

    Stan's big test today. If he beats Berdy, then I think chichenelli will win the 5th rubber. that means Stan is better davis cup player than Federer.

    yes try an internet feed: livescorehunter.

    Stan needed to break that racquet, brought a bit of passion in that match.
    Hope he can get back in.
    These guys should be tired after last 2 days.
    It is not easy to finish on these courts.

    His 2 sets to berdych right now :(, but I'm with you on that one, I feel Stans more into Davis cup then federer is, of course Federer wants to continue winning masters tournaments and do well in slams, so it makes sense that his not playing Davis cup this year, especially turning 32 this year~

    I really hope he wins this! After his match with djoko and the 7 hours doubles match yesterday, he deserves this at least! Ever since he wiped the floor with roddick at the aus open 4th round 2011, I've been watching him closely, he really has all the right tools and the right game to win big, buy his been a little inconsistent in his career, but so far in 2013 he really seems like his trying his best in every match, I hope he has a good year! His someone I've always wanted to take his game to the next level!

    Oww Stan lost =(, it was always going to be near impossible without FREDERER, not saying they're not good players but Marco and that other dude Laasakco were never really going to be able to beat top 20 players as most teams have one this year

    Pathetic result by Isner and its probably already been mentioned but pathetic support for the Davis Cup by Jacksonville. 3500 people there on Friday, yesterday was empty, and today isn't much better.

    Where do you think this tie should have been held topdawg? There are alot of venues to choose from wonder why Jacksonville.

    I will be surprised if querrey loses more then 10 games.

    Jacksonville does seem like an odd choice, but in all fairness to the fans, there is another modestly notable US sporting event taking place in a few hours.

    Isner and Querrey are both based in Florida maybe it was a request from Courier for his players preference.

    When I turned on the match, I couldn't believe this was a Davis Cup crowd in the US.

    What the hades is going on in Jacksonville?

    I've seen more people watching a local junior girls tournament recently.

    And what's up with the cheerleaders and the eagle/chicken mascot (which was cheering when Isner lost break point in the 5th)?

    This is absolutely embarrassing!

    Why didn't the USTA put this match in an area that actually cares about tennis, and has historically supported Davis Cup? The Davis Cup final in Portland, Oregon sold out in about 10 minutes, and other ties in North Carolina seemed well attended. Sticking it somewhere in California (where Isner and the Bryan brothers are from), or in Atlanta (with Isner's Georgia connections) seems like it would have been a much better idea. In Jacksonville, it appears the Brasilians that traveled to watch are outnumbering the local spectators.

    Hopefully, Querrey can pull this one out. Sure would have been nice if the event was close enough for his "Sam-u-rais" to be able to show up.

    I guess the thinking was to put it in a city where nothing else was going on but that didn't work. There are many more tennis hotbeds in this country that would have supported it better as they have in the past - Atlanta, Austin, Birmingham, Winston Salem. They did move up the starting time today by 2 hours to try and avoid the Super Bowl but still that doesn't explain yesterday and Friday.

    This could have been a factor, since Isner and one of the Bryan brothers each have a house in Florida.

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that Querrey is based out of Las Vegas.

    All that being said, a location in California (with Querrey and the Bryan brother's ties there) or even in another location within Florida (Miami?) seems like it would have been a better choice.

    glad I am not the only one embarrassed by the lack of crowd support. Good grief the SUI/CZE match was rocking. Just embarrassing choice by the USTA, but what else is expected from the goofs in the national office

    so did Bellucci outplay Isner, or was Isner not 100%? i missed the match and haven't seen the highlights yet.

    France Vs. Argentina should be fun.

    he should've closed out bellucci, isner was playing way too passive. As usual his serve got him to a 5 setter, and also caused him to lose in 5 as well

    If the Us somehow lose this tie at home to Brazil after 2-0 ,it certainly has to be the biggest choke in DC history.

    Well, this Davis Cup is interesting. Spain is out. And USA is in trouble too. They will probably win the last rubber though, but still, it's tighter than it "should" be.
