Europe/Africa Group I 1st Round: Romania at Ukraine (Jan 31- Feb 02, 2014)

Date: 31 Jan - 02 Feb 2014
Venue: Megaron Tennis Club, Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine
Start times:
Day 1: 1400 hrs (1200 hrs GMT) tbc
Day 2: 1600 hrs (1400 hrs GMT) tbc
Day 3: 1400 hrs (1200 hrs GMT) tbc
Surface: Hard (Opticourt), Indoor
Ball: Head ATP


Ukraine will host Romania in the first round of the 2014 competition. The tie will take place at the Megaron Tennis Club in Dnipropetrovsk. Romania won the teams' only previous meeting in 2010, a 3-1 victory in Bucharest.
The Ukrainians missed their chance to enter the World Group after defeat by Spain in Madrid in September. With Rafael Nadal returning to the Spanish team for the first time in two years, Spain proved too strong, winning 5-0. However, Ukraine will be confident coming into this tie, having shown their resolve when coming from 1-2 down twice (against Slovak Republic and Sweden) in 2013.
Romania had a mixed season in 2013. A 5-0 victory over Denmark gave the Romanians the chance to play for a World Group play-off place against the Netherlands. However, they suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of the Dutch, meaning that they will compete at this level for the third consecutive year.

It seems Dolgopolov (who supported our mafioso-president) is afraid of revolution. Stakho (who supported #euromaidan) is injured...

^ I know Dolgopolov , participated only in 2013 (so no 2010, 2011,2012, 2014) and I read he has/had some misunderstandings with the ukrainian tennis federation (but you should know better )

Last year he fired all federation top stuff (this request was condition of his participation). Then he played tennis with Yanukovich... and now prefer to be far from the country

Even with Stakho joining I can see our team easily win. I'm positive that both Hane and Marius will win each at least a point for us + the doubles point which is a lock. That, of course, if Pavel doesn't have the genius idea of playing Ungur like he did in the past, in which case we're fucked.

Roger Federer | Nick Kyrgios | Nicolas Mahut | Richard Gasquet | Fabio Fognini | Flo Mayer | Jiri Vesely | Radu Albot

Fabrice Santoro | Andy Roddick | Nicolas Kiefer | Andrei Pavel
