Maybe one match- is Andy playing as I noticed Yoni has had different partners to date this year.

Weintraub apparently has a leg infection.. may not even play (and Israelis have rubbish replacement options).. so yea, no chance.

Re: World Group 1st Round: Israel at France (February 1-3, 2013)

Israel's replacement for Weintraub will probably be Harel Srugo, a 31-year old non-pro ranked about 1000... Would this be the first time a player ranked this low will play a DCWG tie? At least we will come up with something from this tie... a world record...

OK, so we will bring Noam Okun who retired 2-3 years ago (plays only in Israeli futures for fun), he is ranked 1087. We will break the record after all!!
