Re: World Group 2010 play-offs: Belgium at Australia (September 17-19, 2010)

Hewitt out of today match, Luczak steps in playing O. Rochus....It will be pretty hard now for Australia to advance, I think Olie will beat Luczak, he has 2 matches under his belt, used to the conditoins...for Peter it is gpimg to be firts match. In the fifth rubber Ball will play who? Propably Bemelmans, he showed good effort, plaiyng hewitt, lost in tough 4-setter....Hope Aussi still bet the Belgium, butit will be tough...

Play abandoned in Cairns

The first of the reverse singles at the Australia v Belgium play-off tie in Cairns has been postponed until Monday due to continual heavy rain.

Play was officially suspended at 7:20pm, after Peter Luczak and Olivier Rochus had been waiting to resume their reverse singles, currently standing at 4-4 15-15.

The players had already had to wait over five hours to begin their match on Sunday.

The tie had already suffered one setback when, in the morning, Lleyton Hewitt was replaced by Luczak.

The Aussie No. 1 had suffered a strain close to his right wrist during his doubles victory on Saturday and according to captain John Fitzgerald, has been advised by doctors to recuperate for three weeks.

On Monday, Luczak must resume the most important match of his Davis Cup career as he fights to defeat his higher-ranked opponent and save Australia from having to play a decisive fifth rubber.

Luczak and Rochus have met just once before, at the 2006 Australian Open, when Luczak prevailed in five sets.

Should the tie go down to the wire, Carsten Ball will find himself playing Steve Darcis, who was unable to compete on Friday and Saturday due to a shoulder injury, or Ruben Bemelmans, who pushed Lleyton Hewitt to four sets on Friday.

Play resumes at the Cairns International Tennis Centre at 10am local time.

Darcis won 7-6 6-3 6-4. Belgium stay in the world group, while Australia remain in Asia/Oceania section. Australia blew a 2-1 lead at home. The turth is, this is Australian tennis theses days
