Davis Cup Finale This Weekend, November 30-December 2

Monday, November 26, 2007

Pictured before you is the U.S. Davis Cup Team. Yes, their ties suck, BIG TIME! But their high voltage megawatt smiles more than make up for the fashion faux pas. Rather dapper looking bunch if I might say so, not that it will help their tennis, but it won't hurt either.

With the WTA and ATP tour seasons being officially over, we tennis junkies need a fix and the Davis Cup finale is just the ticket.

I am so excited that the U. S. has made it thus far, and that we have such high quality players in Andy Roddick, James Blake and Bob and Mike Bryan, and a coach like Patrick McEnroe who is solidly behind each of the guys 100%. That's half the battle right there.

Crucial to pulling out this win will be two elements. First, will Andy Roddick have shaken off his year-end championships semi-final loss to Federer and secondly, which James Blake will show up? Both players experienced "interesting" seasons this year, nonetheless, I have no doubt about their talent or ability to come out on top this weekend. That said, neither Roddick nor Blake cloak their current mental or physical state very well, we will know immediately what's up with both players. If it's good, it's all good, if it's bad, we're in trouble.

Short of injury, the Bryan brothers are pretty consistent, we can count on them to hold up their end. So, not to worry about the twins and their doubles matches.

Now, if you'll all gather round and join me in prayer....................Amen. USA!........USA!..........USA!

Oh, yes, they do have an opponent, Russia. Igor Adreev, Nikolay Davydenko, Dmitry Tursunov, Mikhail Youzhny and coach Shamil Tarpischev. While certainly not writing off Andreev and Youzhny, if Roddick and Blake are in fine form, Davydenko and Tursunov will present the battle.
