Wow, what an amazing win! I couldn't believe my eyes!
Did it ever happen that a player ranked as low as Weintraub won two live rubbers in a world group playoff?
i think this is Israel's most surprising davis cup win ever. More than Chile 2006 and Russia 2009. Those were at home, with Israeli players in good form and one of the best doubles teams in the world. This one was an away tie, against a much better team on paper, with all of Israel's players in bad form in the circuit and Japan's tennis having its best year.
I'm still in shock we won this, Israel is such a davis cup over-achiever. The greatest team Israel has ever had in any sport.
