España se juega en Madrid su permanencia en el grupo mundial de la Copa Davis este fin de semana ante Ucrania, con el aliciente de Rafa Nadal, que a pesar del cansancio tras el US Open, jugará su partido del viernes.

El equipo español, eliminado en la primera ronda con Canadá, se postula como favorita ante el combinado ucraniano, cuyas posibilidades son mínimas en arcilla ante Nadal, Verdasco y compañía. El madrileño y el balear jugarán los individuales, y Robredo hará pareja con Marc López para el dobles. Ucrania contará con dos buenos jugadores que lucharán por dar guerra a los nuestros.

 El impredecible Aleksandr Dolgopolov es su principal baluarte y el número 40 del mundo. Su juego arbitrario sin un guión o estructura clásicos lo convierte en un jugador peligroso. Sergiy Stakhovsky (92) tiene el mérito de haber derrotado a Roger Federer en Wimbledon este año, pero su tenis pierde mucha consistencia en tierra.

El primer choque enfrentará a Fernando Verdasco contra Dolgopolov (14.00 h), y en el segundo turno se batirán Nadal y Stakhovsky. El sábado, a las 16.00 horas, tendremos el encuentro entre los españoles Tommy Robredo (19) y Marc López (995) y los ucranianos Denys Molchanov (227) y Vladyslav Manafov (620).

    2010. They sent a special camrea crew out to your court to witness that newsworthy event!Blew my mind the first time I saw you serve @ Monte Carlo (you were ranked no. 72 at the time) vs. Benneteau. I literally jumped in my chair and exclaimed, What was that?!?! thinking they had speeded up the footage except it was live in real time!By the time you made Hot Shot of the day with your deadly dropper vs. Seppi and cooled off the sizzling Rafa at Madrid, you were already World No. 62, and multilingual commentators were practicing your name!Next, I saw you (at World No. 56) dispatch the firey forehand of Gonzo in straights on the Grand Slam Terre Battue!The day you had match point against Jo-Willy on Grand Slam Grass, the commentator (I think it was Peter Fleming himself observing you for the first time) described you as creative he tries shots most players don’t even think of !Onward and upward you rose, defeating Petzschner and Youzhny in Toronto, Blake in New Haven, Baghdatis in Beijing, Almagro in Shanghai, blah, blah, blah, etc., etc.By the time 2011 came around, you (at world no. 49) were making Adidas look good as you defeated Soderling, making Grand Slam QF and handing Murray his first lost set of the Aussie Open! Fast forward to you in California at the first Masters 1000 of 2011: You’ve gone from world no. 131 to world no. 23 in one year and a couple months, inspiring tennis fans all over the world to look forward to you here now, at Roland Garros, and beyond.Keeping it real, I am sincerely, HeatherAnne.p.s. Possibly should tell the editors to post your blog in BNP Paribas Open 2011 and Players, instead of Unspecified Luv ya. Mean it!
