    I just thought I would mention that Tomic put Australia through into yet another world group playoff in Uzbekistan.

    Nobody in Australia has mentioned it on tehe news or anything, though, wouldn't want to give the kid any positive publicity or anything.

    No doubt it would have been the lead story if he had lost..

    Hell, it was the lead story against Germany last year when he was the only one that won a singles rubber and they STILL rubbished him when all Hewitt had to do was beat the guy Tomic had already beaten easily..

    journalists...

    Semi-Finals set: Canada @ Serbia, Argentina @ Czech Republic

    If Canada somehow advances to the Final, they would be hosts regardless of their opponent. If Serbia wins, they'd host the Czechs but would need to travel to Argentina for the Final.

    The better teams can both chose courts. I think Serbia and Czech are going through pretty easily. I'm not sure what courts Serbia will pick, probably slow hard courts, which won't bother Canada that much, but the fact remains that except for Raonic and Nestor, their team isn't that great.
    Djokovic and Tipsarevic are both players that should (but not always will) beat any of Canada's singles players. And then they have Zimonjic as well..

    Czech is lucky they get to choose surface. They already have the better team and if they choose a fast hardcourt.. what are Monaco or Berlocq going to do against that? They'll have to let Nalbandian play and hope for the best, but it won't be enough.

    I think Raonic probably beats Tipsarevic on even a slow surface based on the way Tipsy's playing this year. But yeah, if Djokovic plays Canada has no hope. The Canadian announcers were stating somewhat definitively the Serbs are putting it on clay, which makes sense.

    The huge variable is Djokovic and whether he'll be healthy for a tie right after the USO. There's only 3 days between the USO final and the start of the tie. Not much time for recovery and jet-lag adjustment...Novak needing to fly across the ocean is one potential advantage for Canada of the tie being in Serbia (presumably all the Canadians will be able to arrive in Serbia well in advance).
