Guga in Davis Cup tie vs Austria

With Melo out for personal reason, Guga will team up with Sá in doubles.

Re: Guga in Davis Cup tie vs Austria

A little bit of trivia

Quote:
Eleven years ago, Austrian top star Thomas Muster, who teamed-up with Udo Plamberger, quit play in the fifth set of the doubles against Kuerten and Jaime Oncins, due to disturbance from the crowd. Brazil was assigned the point in their World Group Play-off tie, and Team Austria did not play the reverse singles matches, going down 1-4 eventually. The loss meant their relegation from the World Group. “It was a very unusual match, a very unusual way things turned out. But for me it was nice, because it was great to win at home. However, it was not the way we wanted to win,” Kuerten commented on Thursday.

Re: Guga in Davis Cup tie vs Austria

There is a match report on DC site

http://www.daviscup.com/news/matchre...rticleid=14328

and if you listen to the interview, Guga had to trim his hair during the match because it's too long and covering his eyes.
