Re: Israel v Great Britain

Rusedski boost for Davis Cup team

Rusedski threatened to quit Davis Cup after Tim Henman pulled out
Greg Rusedski has boosted Great Britain's Davis Cup chances by making himself available to face Israel.
Tim Henman's decision to quit playing Davis Cup tennis led to Rusedski considering his future.

But the British number two has now told the Lawn Tennis Association that he is available for the Euro-African Zone match in Tel Aviv on 4 March.

British captain Jeremy Bates had faced the prospect of fielding two inexperienced youngsters for the tie.

Re: Israel v Great Britain

i think with greg in we should definately be the favoutrites now. Unless anything major happens before then i would suggest greg and alex to play the singles and use 2 different guys for the doubles.
Its a difficult choice tho as the israel have a great doubles pair so i dont rate our chances anyway.
Its hard to tell from doubles scores who of the 2 is better, Marray seems a strong choice but his singles form is deeply worrying. Could maybe put Andy in if he is fit, might be better to play that 1st than a dead rubber. Sherwood has been playing well too.
Do Marray and Sherwood ever play together? Kiernan is another strong contender.

Poor Bates he only had 1 tie where the choices were easy

Re: Israel v Great Britain

I'd put Greg, Bogo, and Arvind in for singles selection...and Sherwood and Marray in for doubles (if they are compatible).

Re: Israel v Great Britain

your problem there Jez is that theres no andrew murray, he will be taken as he is the only other player the general public have heard of, so if he's left out there would be lots of compliants about not giving rising talent the chance etc. If he plays and we lose fair enough he is young and will learn, if he doesnt play and we lose that will be the reason.

Re: Israel v Great Britain

Go Israel!!!

I hope we can provide some challenge to Greg in singles although I doubt it seeing as he is in pretty good shape. Maybe Noam Okun if he plays- he beat Enqvist last year in Indianapolis and nearly took a set off Hewitt at the U.S. Open when Hewitt was #1 in the world. I just hope he is feeling well enough after retiring in his first round match in a challenger in Cherbourg earlier this week

Also a lot will depend on Harel Levy although he has had some shit results in the last couple of years Mind you, he did make it to the Canada TMS finals in 2000 stopped only by Safin so I hope he can provide a decent challenge.

If the tickets are not sold out already I might go and check it out

Re: Israel v Great Britain

Alex Bogdanovic has pulled out injured from his latest match, Andy Murray has also had some fitness problems recently, at this rate GB will be struggling to put a team out.

Re: Israel v Great Britain

Hilton/Marray would've been a great combo, but probably thats all Hilton would do, and JB might have considered it a risk doing that.
But anyway, I think we have a good chance of doing well, and although people are saying Levy and Okun are not great, I have seen them both play on a number of ocassions and I think they could cause some doubles.

Good luck GB!
