yes, it is a true, he was nominated because Jiri and also the captain believe he will be able to play. He wants so much to play
He even tried to play this week a match for his home team Ceska sportovni, he played against Tomas Zib (played for TK Neride) who is also nominated for DC but Jiri had to give up when the score was 4:0 for Zib.
"I wanted to try if I'll be able to play. Thanks goodness for the four games but it wasn't good so I rather gave up." He also tried the silicon heel cushio in his shoe.
Although his problems seem not going to subside Novak will join the team on Sunday to prepare for Davis Cup in Liberec. "I want ot be there and give it my maximum. We must work hard and hopefully the doctors can heel me and it will be better," still believes Novak.
