Re: The Latvia-Greece Davis Cup thread

some news:
http://sportacentrs.com/teniss/latvi...a_deivisa_kaus

Latvian team had the early flight from Riga to Thessaloniki yesterday. Depsite it wasn't an easy trip since they made it via Berlin, they already had first practise yesterday in the afternoon. It lasted not more than an hour, Andis Juška played against Miķelis Lībietis, and Kārlis Lejnieks against Deniss Pavlovs. More practise sessions will take place today, and today the team captain will start thinking who will play singles matches. So at the moment nominations for Friday matches are still open.

The tennis club is small (there are only 4 courts) but Dzelde said the surface quality is good. Despite Thessaloniki hosts several ITF and futures tournaments on hard, the DC tie will be playing on clay because it gives more chances to home team. The clay is wet there so balls become weighty very quickly.

It is cold there The air temperature is not more than 10C in the daytime, and in the afternoon, when the sun goes down, it it even colder. People who live in Thessaloniki says it is unusual in compare with other years.
