Getting over the Davis Cup blues

OK, everyone: It took a few days, but I'm ready to move on.

Yes, if things don't go the way I'm hoping for with Davis Cup, it kind of shakes me up a little. There were some highs over the weekend, like Chile winning and Argentina, too (major, major props to David Nalbandian), but ...

Team USA really lost a tough one!

Granted, they were underdogs going to Serbia and playing on clay, but to me, when you play on dirt indoors, it provides more of a level field for big hitters. There were some shining moments like John Isner pushing Novak Djokovic to five sets and getting a win in doubles in his first tie. But I also thought he should have been able to take out Viktor Troicki first up. And if it would've come to a live fifth rubber, I'd go with Sam Querrey over Troicki nine times out of ten to win that match.

So again, tough loss for the guys, but congrats to Serbia for its first quarterfinal appearance. Serbia and Croatia in the next round should be a good one, as should the rest of the matchups. I just wish Team USA was still in the mix: Oh well, there's always the qualifying round!

What does that have to do with Davis Cup? Geez... people are getting their ads in wherever they can huh? ;(

I was disappointed too Van... It was a tough one, the Troicki/Isner match and ohhh I was so hoping Johnny could get that tie. There is next year and John and Sam will be better! :o)
