Davis Cup R1 vs Germany - Day 1

Update: David triumphs over Mayer in a strangely topsy-turvy match 2-6 6-0 6-1 7-6(5). Report coming up very soon. It was overall a good performance from David though.

Update: David is on court now.

A bit of a late post, but it won't be long now until David plays his Davis Cup rubber against Florian Mayer.

Monaco is currently up two sets to love against Philipp Petzschner. It is all going according to plan, and in all likelihood, David should be able to play without much pressure.

There wasn't really much of a choice as to what photo I could use, so I went with the team photo.

I'm not really sure whether Mayer is fit enough to perform at his best in this match. He certainly hasn't had a whole lot of match practice this year. We'll just have to wait and see whether it ends up being a tough match or not.

    I certainly hope not. He beat Nadal, Alamagro, Tipsarevic, and Del Potro last year! Not to mention David, Pico, and Flaco.

  6. Mayer isn't playing as well in this match compared to Shanghai. David isn't moving well at all, and appears to be quite sluggish. I expect it should improve in the next few sets...

  10. "if mayer is too good for nalbandian than why bother?"

    Don't forget that Meyer is currently the world #21, isis. Ranked above Monaco, Chela, Troicki, Cilic, Wawrinka, verdasco, Granollers, Raonic...

  26. I'm really sorry about what's happening in Syria Noubar! Every time I read the news my heart aches :( We are praying for this situation to end.

    I only watched the first match and then had to leave for my sister's graduation party which turned out to be also my surprise graduation party even though I told my family I didn't want one! I miss the times when I used to come here to watch the matches I miss :(

  27. Wow, I just saw that Isner beat Federer in DC on clay, in Switzerland. Crazy. Fish also beat Wawrinka on clay.

    David really picked up his game after a sluggish first set. I've got to start writing my report now...

  28. That sounds really horrible, Noubar. :(
