Random D Cup News & Resemblances

First up: further to my previous post about this tie, the Israeli team are due to arrive in Coquimbo on Wednesday. They’ve been stuck in Buenos Aires up till now which only gives them two days to train – and consequently allows them to ask for the tie to be postponed, as they are theoretically guaranteed four days. I’m not clear whether the ITF are obliged to grant the request, and in any case the tie would only be postponed until Saturday or Sunday. Still, that could be an important day or two.
Secondly, further to the tweeting of a couple of the Indian players, Nikolay Davydenko is in serious doubt for the Russia-India tie due to a wrist injury sustained in Rotterdam (either I already blogged this or I’m having major deja vu). According to Tarpischev, “his chances are very, very small“. If Kolya can’t play, he’ll be replaced by Igor Andreev.
Thirdly, the U.S. team have arrived in Serbia.
Welcome to Belgrade, boys.

Anyway, let’s be honest. This whole post was basically an excuse for me to indulge in one of my favourite things: photos of Novak Djokovic wearing his glasses.
