Spanish Davis Cup
Captain Gets Flak For Losing
there is fall out from the team that loses the Davis Cup final and
Spain, champions five times this century but beaten by the Czech
Republic in Prague last weekend, are no different. The majority of the
criticism is falling upon captain Alex Corretja and his decision to play
Nicolas Almagro on a fast indoor hard court when perhaps Feliciano Lopez
would have been more suited to the conditions.
Spanish Davis Cup
Captain Responds To Critics
captain Alex Corretja has swallowed the bitter disappointment of the
Davis Cup finals loss to the Czech Republic, with the skipper insisting
that he's make the same team selection again. As predicted by Tomas
Berdych before the Prague tie, No. 11 Spaniard Nicolas Almagro proved to
be the weak link, losing both of his singles ties.
"As captain I try to
cope with the situation as best I can and in the end we fought as hard
as we could to win a final that eluded us by a tiny, tiny margin," he
told Spanish radio Cadena Ser. "If we played Czech Republic again
tomorrow I would choose the same four players."
Davis Cup Captain
Courier Criticizes Davis Cup Format
an international level, it’s rare to hear Davis Cup captains heavily
criticize the format, but US captains have been known to do so, from
John McEnroe, to Patrick McEnroe, and now to the current captain Jim
“It's been a great
experience so far," Courier told the Las Vegas Review Journal. "The
challenge is the format itself. Winning won't change interest in the
Davis Cup in this country. The system is broken, and the ITF
(International Tennis Federation) needs to think about changing it.”
