That match was nothing more than a source of misery, it seems Losing like that, and now Jarkko's injury. Sucks. I hope the injury isn't serious and Jarkko will be back on court in no time.

Default Re: Davis Cup

Finland is handed a tough draw for the 2008 Davis Cup, first round opponent is South Africa, who have two solid singles players in Wesley Moodie and Rik De Voest and an expert doubles pairing of Moodie/Coetzee. The positive news is that it will be a home tie (decided by lot), which is to be played in April next year.

It's going to be difficult, our best chance is to get the tie onto clay, but I'm not sure if it's a possible option. As far as I know, our indoor clay courts don't have the facilities to hold a Davis Cup tie

Maybe in April it's possible to play outdoors and make the South Africans feel the Finnish weather.

When I heard the radio I first thought it would be played in South Africa, because there is one match listed in the H2H in Finland. What's the reason for that, was it too long ago?

Tennis can't be played in -10 degrees of Celsius It might be a warm spring, but I doubt they can risk it.

It was before 1970, I read that it's the deadline.

Default Re: Davis Cup

The Finland - South Africa tie will be played (as expected) in Tali, Helsinki.

They'll redo the top layer of the old GreenSet Comfort surface, which means the court will play slower than before (new layer is more gritty at first). The Finnish DC captain is happy with this as it should benefit the Finns more. Clay wasn't a possibility at that time of the year (11.-13.4.)

Moodie
de Voest
Coetzee

Last year Wolmarans was the 4th man. Any idea if Kevin Andersen is going to play this year? He would be another danger for us, probably more dangerous than Moodie and de Voest. Maybe Moodie could concentrate on doubles then.

Rik de Voest will spearhead the South African Davis Cup team to play Finland in Helsinki from April 11 to 13.

Joining him will be Wesley Moodie, Kevin Anderson and Jeff Coetzee and the team will be captained by John-Laffnie de Jager.

At 130 De Voest is currently the highest ranked South African followed by Moodie at 163. Anderson, who is just 21-years-old, has moved up to 188. Coetzee is the doubles specialist and he is ranked 25.

De Voest showed how dangerous he can be by reaching the quarter-finals of the SAA Tennis Open at Selborne Park this week and took top seed and former world No 3 Ivan Ljubicic to three sets.

Jarkko will have to work hard for the two singles points this time, but I don't know where we can get the third one. I expect to see some bold choices from the new captain.
