Davis Cup Bets

We look at the teams who we believe will have a fighting chance to lift the 2009 Davis Cup – the teams that have reached the semi-finals.

For livetennis betting we use William Hill, one of the world’s largest and most reputable betting companies.

Team Spain

The Red Fury, as Team Spain is better known as, are the defending champions at the 2009 Davis Cup. Currently ranked no.2, Spain has been successful in the Davis Cup on three occasions, in 2000, 2004 and 2008.

What makes Team Spain a very good 2009 Davis Cup Bet, besides the fact they are the defending champions, is that they have competed in the illustrious World Group for 11 consecutive years. If the likes of World no.1, Rafael Nadal, are available to play next year, then Spain will have an excellent chance of outgunning their rivals.

Team Russia

The Russians are looking awesome. Ranked no.1 in the ITF World rankings, Russia has lifted the trophy on two occasions, in 2002 and 2006.

With the likes of Nikolay Davydenko, ranked no.4 on the ATP singles rankings, and previous Australian Open Champion, Marat Safin, as chief protagonists, Davis Cup bets are that they again will reach at least the semifinal berth in the 2008 Davis Cup.

Russia has played in the World Group for 15 consecutive years, the 2nd longest ongoing streak in history.

Team Argentina

Captained by Alberto Mancini, Argentina has yet to win the Davis Cup. They have, however, competed in the World Group for 6 successive years and in all of these years they have advanced to, at least, the quarterfinal stage, earning them a ranking of no.4.

David Nalbandian is one of the players to watch in the sky blue and white colours and a match off between he and arch rival Lleyton Hewitt of Australia is sure to get tongues wagging. The two players are known to dislike each other with intensity.

Team USA

The most dominant Davis Cup contender in history, 3rd ranked Team USA, has taken the coveted title on 31 separate occasions. In the past 16 years, however, they have only managed to take the title twice, in 1992 and 1995.

Davis Cup bets are that they will, however, remain in contention in 2009, as Andy Roddick, ranked no.5 on the ATP rankings, James Blake, ranked no.8 and the Bryan Brothers, ranked no.1 doubles team, are capable of beating anyone on the day.
