Smeets has just has his citizenship pushed through by TA and is being sent to Chile as a seventh player! We might not have the quality but we will sure swamp them by sheer weight of numbers!
Begs the Question. Is Fitzy planning to play Smeets in the doubles with Gooch? (thus Groth will lose his place) and if Smeets has only just become an Aussie why have TA given him two Aust and one French grand slam wildcards?
Another question. If a DC player has to have been a resident of the country he represents for 3 years prior to the tie how did Ball, who has always resided in the US gain eligibility? Just wondering!
