WOW

Bogomolov will play on his own, even in the doubles matches he will play alone and Russia will wipe the floor with everybody on their way to the title :worship:

The ATP don't run the Davis Cup.

Bogomolov has expressed interest in playing for Russia. He has not been selected yet.

So the jist of it is, he has dual-citizenship with Russia and USA and so can represent whichever team picks him as long as it's 6 months in advance of the tie. Well, it's great that Alex gets the opportunity to play for the country he has wanted to. Good for him.

His father, Alex Bogomolov, is a renowned tennis coach in the former Soviet Union, who coached Yevgeny Kafelnikov and Andrei Medvedev among others.

I think they did a mistake... Alex Dolgopolov senior was the coach of Medvedeev and Kafelnikov, not Bogomolov. These journalists... :eek: :rolleyes:

Ahaha.. if that's the case, the Dolgopolov, Bogomolov confusion strikes again. Will that ever die?

He probably wouldn't be given the opportunity to play for the U.S. anyway, so it seems to be the right choice.

It's definitely a different case than Golubev, Korolev joining the Kazakh team.

Interesting if true. Wonder if Olympic selection has to do with this, too? Bogo's currently in the Top 56 and is the 4th highest-ranked American male, but could be overtaken by Young at any time.

Can he take the rest of the Americans with him? Maybe we'll keep Fish and have Serena wear a mustache, and he we might actually win some DC. They were unstoppable together at the Hoffman cup.
