as a rule, the best American tennis players refuse to play for a national team in the Davis Cup. It is already difficult to remember, when last time Americans gathered the strongest structure.
however for a match with Belarus the national team of the USA has sufficed also the consent to appear on the court one Andy Roddika. Admirers of the Belarus national team could count that Max Mirnyj can win the second racket of a team of the contender, Mardi Fisha, but Peace has conceded in four sets, and the national team of Belarus has been doomed as to count that Tops will beat Roddika, it was not necessary.
Tops also has lost with account 1 - 6 4 - 6 4 - 6. In a pair meeting at Byelorussians also was a few chances. Peace and Tops is separately stronger than each of brothers Bryans, but in steam Americans play more strongly. As Byelorussians on Friday have led heavy single matches, and brothers had a rest.
