Re: Austria vs Brazil, World Group play-offs

:lol:

If we're down 1-2 by Saturday, maybe Saretta should lead a default just like Muster. :D
On what grounds, he got hit with a weinerschnitzel.

Re: Austria vs Brazil, World Group play-offs

Why did Austria give two walkovers in 96?

Also, is it likely Marcelo Melo will make the team for this tie?

The Austrian team (especially Muster) was annoyed with the crowd behaviour (people screaming in between points, insults, hisses and a guy constantly shining a mirror in Muster's eyes when he was about to serve) and alleged "safety concerns". The ITF concluded things weren't serious enough to justify the withdrawals and Brazil ended up winning the tie by 4-1 and got promoted to the World Group, and Austria was relegated.

I remember Muster saying, "I'll never come back again to this country full of animals." He actually came back more than once a few years later for Carnival in Rio.

Marcelo should pair up with Sa for the doubles, yes.

Good to see Melo/Sa in Davis Cup!
Some idea about who may play in singles?
Saretta, Mello and Alves?
