Ball in for Australia
Rising Australian tennis player Carsten Ball's rankings surge has earned him a place in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas squad for next month's tie in Chile.

Facing a tough task on clay in Antofagasta, Ball is the first player named in the squad, following his rise to No. 188 in the world with some good current form on the circuit. The left-handed son of former Australian player Syd Ball was Australia's top junior in 2005.

venue in Chile will be ready by 08 or 09 September. 2 Chilean juniors will be hitting partners. Chilean team to be announced within next days.

Australia is supposed to play with Chris Guccione, Paul Hanley, Brendan Klein, Carsten Ball and Bernard Tomic.

nice to see Luczak back and I hope Hanley is not injured to miss the tie.

Joke of a team for Australia.

Still think it's too early for Pete to try and play Davis Cup and best out of 5 set matches, having said that, he's probably better than anyone else still. :shrug:

I'm pleased that Luczak has been included in the tie.

Smeets, who has just had his aussie citizenship pushed through has become a late addition to the squad! How did he get an Aussie and French slam wildcard this year?
Why bother sending him if they didn't intend playing him! Perhaps doubles? Will Groth get dropped to make room?

JMG 09-13-2008 12:20 PM

Re: World Group Play-Offs: Australia at Chile (September 19-21, 2008)
 
Why didn't they nominate at least one of the good doubles players?

Kerr or Hanley or even Junaid, who is also solid on clay in singles.
