Gilles Mueller won't play? Luxembourg to Group III next year I presume...

Definitely. Even with Muller they would hardly have a chance in Finland in July.

Carlsen retired last year.

And Pless :shrug: Looks like he hasn't played DC for quite a while. Last match I found was 2001.

Finland lost the last match in Luxembourg some time ago...anyway, this team here without Muller wont win a set of course....NO professional player! Muller plays a tournament because he apparently wants to qualify for the olympic games..

oh yes Denmark would be at 1-1 after today when Gilles Kremer would have played. the number 2 of Denmark didnt play well AT ALL against a NON ranked and NOT professional player and won ONLY in 4 sets...he was down 2-5 in the first set also...he was weak, our amateur played well!

About Kremer, its the brother of Anne Kremer. He is on tour with his sister Anne. Muller wants to qualify for the olympic games and Scheidweiler is injured. Bram wont play anymore I guess. Luxembourg had a change of teamcaptain and coach. I have to say Grandjean played very well for Luxembourg, probably lost because of the fact that he was not ready to play more than 3 sets, not ready physically!


but quite embarrassing for the danish number 2 to lose a set against him :)
