Vinciguerra rushed to hospital

Andreas Vinciguerra suffered a case of acute dehydration yesterday during practise for the DC tie against India. He was taken to hospital where he received drip(IV?).

His body reacted against 1,5 hours training. -I was dizzy and started to have cramps. I've never experienced such heat before, the Swede says about the conditions in New Delhi.

Vinciguerra rejoined the team Tuesday night but it's uncertain whether he'll be able to play in the singles rubbers on Friday. -If he can't play tomorrow, he's improbable to be on the team, says DC captain Mats Wilander.

Aphex, thanks for the live info. I have taped the match at home, but here at work no live scoring or anything is working, so it would be great if you could write the result every each set :)

Thank you so much!!!

Ok, I'll do it while I'm awake. I work nights and it's early here and I have to sleep some because I have things I need to do later today. So sorry if I can't be of too much service. :wavey:

Swedish commentators and assistant coach Nyström whine about the Indian grass surface. :rolleyes:
Same story as always when we play India away. They should know by now. Wilander was there in 85 and Björkman was there in 96. No use complaining. It's DC. I bet India didn't fancy always playing on clay when in Sweden.

:confused: WTF is going on? Tie-break in the 1st set. Bopanna had a set point at 6-5 on Johansson's serve. ToJo's volleys really suck today.

Thomas gets away with it 7-3 thx to a couple of crucial df's from Bopanna. :D

The Indians loved playing on clay in Sweden in the 80s and who is commentating?

It should have started about 30 minutes ago, yet the live scoreboard at daviscup.com hasn't budged. Is it still raining over there? Time to find the nearest indoor facility ASAP :unsure:.
