2007 Team Predictions

It just dawned on me that there are on 16/17 days until team announcements (depending on which source you believe) so let's all have a crack at picking the teams for this year:

I believe there will only be 8 teams with no qualifier, and this list is what I THINK, not what I hope.

USA - Dent and Williams CONFIRMED
Serbia - Ivanovic and Djokovic STRONG RUMOUR
Argentina - Nalbandian and Dulko
Australia - Philippousis (sadly) and Stosur
Russia - Safin and ... Lottery pick .... Kuznetsova
ASIAN QUALIFIER TEAM
Sweden - Johansson and Arvidsson (basing this on slight rumour by moderator on official site last year)
France - Gasquet and Golovin

I know people have said Croatia are a cert, but I don't trust the Croat media.

So for me: USA, Serbia, Argentina, Australia, Russia, Asian Team, Sweden, France.

Comments anyone?

michaŽlla krajicek

arvidsson clijsters dulko ivanovic
kuznetsova sharapova stosur

your picks sound good, the only thing i'm not sure about is the aussie team
I don't know if it will be sam or alicia

alicia needs some guaranteed matches, but then again she needs ranking points also

Allez Justine!

yeah the aussie team could be anyone its pretty open. sam would get asked cause of both great singles and doubles atm, but she may sa let alicia play cause she needs games and will head to her home tournament gold coast, with the mens it could be anyne as well strong possibilty it be philla then u also gota look at davies cup teamm of peter luc, hanley or nathen healey. so its pretty open.

SAMMY OUR NO 1

i don't think nalbandian can come as he is supposedly playing an exhibition with nadal in thailand on new years eve

otherwise your picks are probably not that far off the mark, though i would also love them to bring back spain:
robredo/verdasco/ferrer/ferrero (there are so many to choose from, but obviously not nadal if he's playing in thailand) with someone like anabel medina garrigues

I dont think Sam will come. Lisa will be in Gold Coast and they can play some dbls and train 2gether before the Aussie. And they have the same coach

Does anyone have doubts about Venus actually turning up? She's injured again...(I know it's still a long time, but she's like injured all the time now...)

I wasn't disappointed...not a fan of Raymond, but also not a Venus fan. Would have been nice if Lindsay could play (although I doubt she would).

Yeah, that's why I said I doubt if Lindsay would come...But then I'd rather Meghann Shaughnessy than Venus so...

Thats a good point, i hadn't thought of it. I would think she would be ok to play by then, but its Venus so who knows.

Yeah... but I mean with the WS you never really know if they are going to turn up or not. Much as I ddon't like her (I mean she's not a fave) it'd be a pity for the tourney if she didn't show.

Yeah they really need to get some big names to play there
