Hey D, is Fed going to play? 
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

yeah...Federer will be playing the Davis cup against USA..

SWISS team ( probable): Federer, Wawrinka & maybe Marco Chiudinelli.. :)
USA ( Confirmed) : Mardy Fish, John Isner, Mike Bryan and Ryan Harrison. ( Bob Bryan will not play as his wife just had a baby :// ...NO Andy Roddick due to  his injury in Australia... even Ryan Harrison is unlikely to play. Mardy and John are the singles guys and itís most likely Mardy and Mike in the doubles, although it depends a lot on how the Singles rubbers go..:)

Fish  :worthy: :yahoo: I though he really lose this match when he had to save two break points in last game, great work but quality of the match was a bad one  :whistle:

Now Federer will beat easily Isner and I don't see they would lose this tie. He beats easily Fish as well , doubles match is okay without Bob Bryan. And I'm not sure about Isner's chances against Wawi neither.
Vamos Spanish players!!!

Marcel Granollers :)) :worthy:
Łukasz Kubot :lust:
Rafa Nadal :spot on:

Isner beat Federer!

The Fribourg stadium looks like a Ukrainian prison, bah.
Oh, the Rod Laver arena is so awesome.

Okay, I was very wrong.  I'm very happy for Isner anyway, I'm his fan since a while, I really like him, has nice game (not only serve but perfect forehand and his volley is so good as well), has beautiful attitude and personality, deserved a very great win, recently he is playing in top form without doubt.
He doesn't have to defend lot of points since Newport, I think he can reach top 10 with it, if continues similar like this match.

Mardy practiced on the court once and said Isner will be unstoppable with his serve.

Isner frequently used an insane kickserve against Federer's backhand (Federer had to jump to reach it).

I saw Fed make like Gasquet and retreat 10 feet behind the baseline to return the serve. Very funny.

this is probably not that surprising.......two reasons.......davis cup and selferer don't belong in the same line.......isner showed in the past that he can play on clay........
Marian Vajda to Novak Djokovic, "I saw you beat that man like I never saw no man get beat before, and the man KEPT COMING AFTER YOU! Now we don't need no man like that in our lives."

i demand french open to be renamed RAFAEL GARROS

More importantly, the court was ridiculous and they couldn't play tennis,  which is why John dominated with his serve.

Both top Swiss lost!  What do you think of that huh?  That without Andy too!  Unbelievable!  Courier must be on a cloud after the one, two single wins.

lack of time, and stadiums are full. We were not allowed to even see them hitting the balls. Might try my luck again tomorrow. Tsonga plays Raonic at 2pm local time tomorrow. I have totally missed this one.  :(
