The 2010 Davis Cup draw came out this morning and while everyone is understandably buzzing about the 1st round tie between Spain and Switzerland, I'm way more pumped for the USA vs. Serbia tie. Why?
Because it's in Serbia.
If you think about when Nole's career started to take a weird turn, you have to look back at Sarsapalooza 08, when Andy called out Nole for being injury prone, Nole got mad, New York got mad, and as a result, Nole's brain melted. I swear it was as though Andy somehow lobotomized him. The guy has been lost ever since.
So excuse me if I look forward to Nole finally playing Andy on pro-Nole territory. When they can finally have a match where Nole should feel comfortable letting the Falcon out. Who knows what will happen, but a Nole win would go a long way for his confidence and at least get Andy out of his head.
Because seriously? Of all the players to have in your head, does it really have to be A-Rod? Come on.
Also, will 2010 finally be the year when P-Mac gets his head out of his ass and plays Sam instead of Headband and Socks?
As for the Spain/Switzerland tie in Spain, I don't know why but I'll be surprised to see Roger there. And I don't mean that as a slight to him. I just wonder if that early in the season he'll be willing to go from Australian hardcourts, to clay, and back. Though, I guess if he was willing to play last week's relegation tie, he must want to add the Davis Cup to his NetJet. What better way to do it than to beat Rafa.
