Anyone here thinks that the Israeli team has a chance to win more than one match?

Weintraub apparently has a leg infection.. may not even play (and Israelis have rubbish replacement options).. so yea, no chance.

Israel's replacement for Weintraub will probably be Harel Srugo, a 31-year old non-pro ranked about 1000... Would this be the first time a player ranked this low will play a DCWG tie? At least we will come up with something from this tie... a world record...

I think Noam Okun will play play this tie (highest rank 162) was a good davis cup player but have no chance to win against those guys..

I think Filip Prpic of Sweden had a similar ranking during last years tie against Serbia.

OK, so we will bring Noam Okun who retired 2-3 years ago (plays only in Israeli futures for fun), he is ranked 1087. We will break the record after all!! :)
