Swedish captain fears home crowd in Davis Cup tie
By The Associated Press

Sweden captain Mats Wilander is expecting a vocal crowd this weekend when his team faces Israel in the first round of the Davis Cup.

Last weekend, the fans at the Ramat Hasharon Tennis Center briefly got to Maria Sharapova by imitating her grunting. Sharapova still won her Fed Cup debut match, however, and Russia eventually beat Israel to reach the semifinals.

"They raise their game when they are playing in front of their crowd," Wilander said yesterday. "I think all five matches can be won or lost. I think the score could be 5-0 or 0-5 or 3-2."

The best-of-five series starts with Friday's singles. The doubles will be played Saturday, and the reverse singles are set for Sunday.

Israel's team includes Dudi Sela, Harel Levy, Andy Ram and Jonathan Erlich, while Sweden will be represented by 2002 Australian Open champion Thomas Johannson, Jonas Bjorkman, Simon Aspelin and Filip Prpic.

"I think our players know that they are considered both as underdogs and also as favorites," Israel captain Eyal Ran said.

"This is going to be a very difficult tie. We are going to do the maximum we can to win, and I hope the players will be on top of their games."

Israel reached the World Group by beating Chile in last year's playoffs.

"Of course we know the Israeli team is very strong after beating Chile and I also know it's a big two weeks for Israeli tennis with the Fed Cup," Wilander said. "So I know everyone is very excited, which is good for them, I guess. But we have a very experienced team, and we have been in this situation before."

Sweden has won seven Davis Cup titles, the last in 1998.

Israel have a pretty strong team - especially in the doubles. Not that Jonas isn't great, but he hasn't had a lot of success playing doubles with the other swedish players

WTF.
Jonas was just bagelled by Levy in the first set
06 64 43 at the moment, and my fingers [when not typing] are crossed.

Hooray!! I wish I could have seen it! I didn't think they'd make it after going down 2-1, and then tojo did great and then the 6-0 first set against Jonas, but somehow he did it! yayyyyyyyyy

Reuters Article

Quote:
In Tel Aviv, Sweden's Jonas Bjorkman shed his tag as simply a doubles specialist when he overcame a nightmare start to stifle Israeli hopes with a 0-6 6-4 6-3 7-6 win over Harel Levy.

Bjorkman's win gave Sweden a 3-2 win and secured the seven-times winners a quarter-final trip to Argentina.

'GOOD REFLEXES'

In the only world group contest to go into a live fifth rubber, Bjorkman was made to feel all of his 35 years as he watched the first set flash by in a blur.

But it was not long before he remembered his own mantra.

"I'm fitter than ever, I have been changing diapers really well so my reflexes are very good," Bjorkman, who became a father for the second time last month, said before the tie.

Those skills proved to be handy in the second set when he started to chip and charge to the net and kept the points short with his serve-and-volley tactics against Levy.

"I started off pretty badly, I felt that it couldn't get much worse... but in a five-setter you always have the chance to get back into the match," Bjorkman said on Sunday.
