Filipo,
Why Ivaylo Traykof :rocker::rocker::rocker: and Kushev are not playing.
It's a pity that Bulgarians these days don't have player like Orlin Stanoytchev in the 90's.
That guy had unique personality :rocker2::rocker2:

Kushev is injured, he was in the initial squad. Yordan Kanev is injured, too (discal hernia). Vasil Mladenov was sidelined too with hard flu. I don't know what is the situation with Traykov. As i know he was in the preliminary squad. He played for last in Giza (Egypt) at the end of March.

Grigor Dimitrov is claimed for our future star (maybe like Orlin or more). He is very talented and is training hardly in Spain academy. His Spanish coach told that he will make him Top 100 in 1-2 years. So we're praying for him :)

By the way Todor Enev (BUL) def. Goran Tosic (MON) 6-4 6-0. The last match is doubles and for Bulgaria will play rookies Tihomir Grozdanov and Simeon Ivanov.

thank you Filipo :)

and the other ties, were they postponed due to rain?

What happened to Sanon? :scratch: yesterday he lost a match by a score that it was supposed to be the opposite, today he didn't play.

the rain stopped on time. i cannot confirm but i think all the matches are completed. rain was light and not so long (1-2 hours). i cannot understand the results from our information sites. even i don't know who Bulgaria will play tomorrow.
Sanon :shrug:

tomorrow i'll tell the results earlier. the weather seems to be nice. even on Friday and Saturday will be 26-30 Celsius :eek:

good there were no delays :yeah:

the results might be updated at daviscup.com soon, but I think tomorrow's match-up will be available just tomorrow, like happened today

If Sanon was in good form, Côte D'Ivoire could have a chance to go further, but it seems it won't happen, except if he can be back in form tomorrow

the weather seems nice :cool: the African teams can't complain :p
I hope you can go back to the venue and have fun :)
and bring news and comments :)
