It is interesting that at first Egyptian tennis federation decided to choose another venue for this tie

Quote:
Venue: Gezerat ElWard Club
Location: El Mansoura, Egypt
but then it was switched to Cairo.

maybe this change has to do with the political instability in the country

Thanks Nadie for the thread!!!! Can't wait to see him play for Latvija with all the other!!! I think he did the right choice to withdraw form Zagreb....he needds to practice on clay...it almost passed one year!!!

maybe this change has to do with the political instability in the country ....hope there won't be any problems!!

Gulbis is playing this for sure?

It was supposedly in Mansoura because Safwat is from there and he wanted so, but everyone was against it because no one was going to go and support the Egyptian team + some security reasons as the courts in Mansoura aren't really suitable for that. They'll play on the same court Henin and Petrova played on

thanks for your information. I read your reports on tennisalternative from Egypt futures, great stuff will you be attending Davis cup matches?

As for Gulbis, Latvian sports media reports his next tournaments will be DC and then USA series

Thanks. Yes I'll be attending as long as it's in Cairo.
I had a friend ask him in Doha and he said he's probably coming.
Would love to see him playing live though it will reduce Egypt's chances of a win

Hope that the organizers will secure this event properly, as Egypt doesn't seem to be a very stable country just yet:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ure-1-000.html

Seems like Ernie should win (or consider retirement if he doesn't ) .
