Davis Cup! US-Romania
 
It's that time again! Anyone predicting a Lubjicic-like year for Igor Andreev/Pavel Andreev (whatever his name is, I think he is Romanian)? Is this tie in the US or Romania? If it's at home I hope we go slow hard court again :rolleyes:

Oh yeah, I think US is gonna breeze through. Pre-game talk, no spoiler talk.

Marius_Hancu 02-09-2006 10:27 AM

Andreev isn't Romanian. Quite a good player though.

Andrei Pavel is. An artist, but over 30 ...

The tie is in CA.

I believe Andreev is russian.

The tie I really want to see if France-Germany, in Germany. Grosjean is out for revenge I'm sure, and it seems the only time the Germans actually like Kiefer is when he's playing Davis Cup. Wish I had the Tennis Channel (I might head over to the Furry One's house, despite the fact that he used a lower case F the last time he quoted me, harumph).

this issue with kiefer and the german tennis federation is over for a long time. I always liked him, especially when heßs throwing raquets at someone^^ (just kidding)

Andy Hewitt 02-09-2006 04:21 PM

Bah, you know who I meant.

agree ....

Looks like Roddick is going to loose this one against Pavel. 4-1 fifth set. If he's unable to pull out of this situation and lose, how is it going to affect andy's confidence?

Fee 02-10-2006 01:50 PM

Mesias, the thread with actual match details is in the 'Match Results' forum. :)

I'm looking at the live-scoring on the davis cup site and is down 2-5 in the 5th set. Looks like he's gonna take it to 3-5, but umm... well... can't watch the match so no idea how Pavel is playing.

the match is already over....:confused:

Shabazza 02-10-2006 03:27 PM

Blake should win this one, period!

pound cat 02-10-2006 03:29 PM

I know. But had I said who won I should have posted it in Match Results. This was more of a comment on "age-wise, , who do you think should have won this match"

Get yourself ANOTHER coach, Andy. LOL

pound cat 02-10-2006 03:36 PM

Apologies to Roddick...he threw up during the match and was helped off the court.

Hello from La Jolla!

It was an amazing day today. Andy seemed to be in control, and the third set TB was the key. Andy didn't convert Matchpoint, and then he was so sick. We knew something was up with him, because he had a waste basket brought over to where he was sitting.

But when he started throwing up, we knew things were bad. But hey, he's no Justine H-H. He left it all on court, literally, and started to make a comeback in the fifth set.

But Pavel took advantage of the situation, as he should -- just kept the ball in play, and ran Andy around as much as possible.

But Blake really took control in the second match. It was terrific. Blake is playing very confident tennis. I have high hopes for us being up 2-1 tomorrow.

Go USA.

This location is terrific for DC, BTW. Good job, USTA. And the hotel is amazing!!!
