Sela didnt play his best and he could win it.. (he had 3-0 head to head against his opponent)
Weintraub showed great charcter .. he played well and deserve that match (he won a match aginst a top 100 player after 8 straight loses)
till now the underdogs won the matches hope tommorow wont be the same

Kei has a shoulder injury

Seeing Ito's poor level from yesterday, hopefully Sugita will play the 4th rubber against Sela tomorrow.

Doubles rubber is about to start. Not expecting much from the Japanese pair here, but I hope they can make the upset.

I suppose Sela will overcome Ito tomorrow. Ito was playing like crap yesterday against Weintraub and in doubles, too. He is in a real poor form.

He still has his shoulder problems, doesn't he? He would't play if he's not 100% fit I guess.

Yeah, I don't think Kei will play at all. It would be awful to go on court and then having to retire with injury, literally gifting the tie to Israel. That would be worse than just seeing Ito or Sugita losing fair and square against Sela.

Looks like Kei will play against Sela. I hope he's 100% and can play his best today. Good luck Japan!

Kei 63 36 46 *00

Dudi is playing really well today. Much better than against Soeda. He's always been a great DC player, and he's showing that today after his disappointing performance from Friday. It won't be easy for Kei
