With Safin requiring knee surgery and Davydenko wrist not 100%, the Russians will have a tall-order against the French in the Davis Cup q-final. The players who are most likely to be called up for singles are Andreev and Youzhhny. Neither of the above players are spectacular, soo why not give big hitting Tursunov an opportunity fresh off his impressive grass court swing. I believe Tursunov is the second most talented Russian player after Safin due to his shotmaking ability and huge serve. Which of the Russian players would you opt for during this tie???
