Re: Latvia v Monaco - Europe/Africa Group II Semifinals

Yep, we will! History is to be made today!

No problems at all in this tie. Our carpet is way too fast for Monaco players. Balleret tried some nice mixing up yesterday with occasional serve-and-volley attempts, but he didn't look very comfortable at the net. Juska fired down numerous aces, no idea how many, but there were around 2-3 each game. Slice serve in the deuce court was his best shot yesterday for sure

A real pity that Lisnard picked up that injury Hope he gets well soon!

Re: Latvia v Monaco - Europe/Africa Group II Semifinals

Damn, today is the first day in 4-5 years when I don't attend our home Davis cup matches in arena Work, work, work... At least they are showing it live on TV!

Gulbis/Pavlovs just lost 1st set to Balleret/Couillard 3:6 (a break of serve at 3:4, Pavlovs service). Very close match so far.
