Your Davis Cup team is playing in your country. You have tickets in your hands and butterflies in your stomach. Let's make sure your Davis Cup experience is 99.999% trouble-free:

1.Dress loudly. As loudly as possible. Any clothing that does not carry a color present on your national flag should remain in the closet.

2. Don't arrive empty-handed. Food and drink may be sold in a place far, far away from the court. Don't want to miss an incredible rally? Bring your food. Eating and drinking were allowed inside the hall I went.

3. Don't arrive empty-handed Part 2. Music instruments and other TTMN (Things That Make Noise) are OK as long as they're used to support your team.

4. Be cautious. The home team can be punished if the supporters are disturbing the server.

5. Be skeptical. Your team just won two sets without breaking a sweat. Don't go to the rest room now. A thriller third set is bound to happen.

6. Be loud. Cheer. Use your hands, your feet, and the people on the seat next to yours. Your goal: supporting your team as loudly as possible.

7. Final advice: Bring a watch and/or be careful with your timing. Otherwise, instead of "Fifteen - Love", someone will use his mike to say "Please, sir. Sit down." In that case, be sure, to choose the stand the TV cameras are not filming. Do you really want to embarrass yourself on national television?
