Re: Europe/Africa Zone Group III - Venue 1 - 6 nations at Bulgaria (April 8-13, 2008)

the rain stopped on time. i cannot confirm but i think all the matches are completed. rain was light and not so long (1-2 hours). i cannot understand the results from our information sites. even i don't know who Bulgaria will play tomorrow.
Sanon

tomorrow i'll tell the results earlier. the weather seems to be nice. even on Friday and Saturday will be 26-30 Celsius

good there were no delays

the results might be updated at daviscup.com soon, but I think tomorrow's match-up will be available just tomorrow, like happened today

If Sanon was in good form, Côte D'Ivoire could have a chance to go further, but it seems it won't happen, except if he can be back in form tomorrow

the weather seems nice the African teams can't complain
I hope you can go back to the venue and have fun
and bring news and comments

tomorrow i'm busy at the university and i won't go. i'll definitely go on Friday and maybe on Saturday. I hope to catch the match with Turkey, which seems to be most intriguing

here you can see a TV report from yesterday. now i nderstood that the schedule will be made day by day, so the intrigue will remain to the last day. so i'm expecting Bulgaria to play with Turkey on Friday or Saturday.

Re: Europe/Africa Zone Group III - Venue 1 - 6 nations at Bulgaria (April 8-13, 2008)

I was late 10 minutes and Grigor Dimitrov was leading 5-0 This guy was playing extremely good at these moments and his agressive shots were imposible for Zorlu. The second set began with a break for Turk 1-3, but Dimitrov woke up and didn't give another game, 6-3. Our young talent (16 years) impressed me very much with his attacking style, beautiful one-hand backhand, agressive forehand and good baseline play. If he continues in this way i can see him in top 100-150, like his Spanish coach promised. He is at top 10 in juniors at the moment, and he is our big hope for the future.

In the second rubber Enev started the match with a break vs Ilhan and clinched the 1st set with another one, 6-2. Basically this match was different, because both players played long rallies. In the 1st set Ilhan made a lot of errors, after Enev was returning everything. In the second set Ilhan broke (1*-0), but Enev rebroke immediately. Ilhan was struggling with his left wrist, but managed to stay in the match until 3-3. Ilhan produced some really good winners, while Enev was frustrasted that he couldn't return well. Despite this, Enev broke for 5-3 and served for the match. He faced a break point, but saved it and took the win. Bulgaria clinched the tie and recorded 4th consecutive win. Bulgarian doubles won the last rubber, and with this clear win Bulgaria managed to return to Euro/Africa Zone, Group II. Tomorrow is the match vs Zimbabwe.

Standing:
Code:
1. Bulgaria      4 - 0  (11-1)
2. Montenegro    3 - 1  (8-4)
3. Turkey        2 - 2  (7-5)
4. Madagascar    2 - 2  (7-5)
5. Code D'Ivoire 1 - 3  (2-10)
6. Zimbabwe      0 - 4  (1-11)
place, country, won ties/lost ties, won matches/lost matches

Montenegro, Turkey and Madagascar will fight for the second place (which gives promotion to Euro/Africa Zone, Group II).

Tomorrow's ties:
Bulgaria vs Zimbabwe
Turkey vs Cote D'Ivoire
Montenegro vs Madagascar

Bulgaria and Turkey with clear wins according to me, and Montenegro and Madagascar will fight for the second place. Turkey has chances if they win 3-0, and Montenegro loss.
