Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

Tournament Hotel seems to be a place called "Hotel Turist", right in the city centre. At least, it is the only place which is sold out. Looks fancy, reviews are however worse than for some other places around. Looked at the menu prices in the restaurants... Will be a very nice trip :)

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

Hi everyone, first of all, it is confirmed by ITF now in a better-to-understand language: https://www.daviscup.com/en/news/286241.aspx I could not find out too much about the place, as Serbian is nowadays written in Russian letters, which is a bit complicated. The arena seems to be really cool, thou...

Re: Davis Cup 2018 - India

Hi everyone, if I get this link correctly: http://www.teniskisavez.com/vesti/dejvis-kup-srbija-domacin-protiv-indije-u-kraljevu/ Serbia has suggested the ITF (do they really have a right to decline?) in Kraljevo, some 200kms South of capital Belgrade... I would call it Serbian Nomansland... But I ha...

Re: If you had to choose which weapon...

I will become an Indian tennis legend and gain a couple of national and world-wide recods :) :xmas: Realistically, it is the serve....

Re: Leander Paes thread...

Hi, And there was this tribute on the ATP website as well: https://www.atpworldtour.com/en/news/atp-heritage-paes-750-match-wins-tribute loved that pic, so I took the risk for a copyright fraud and used it for my praise on Leander on my new sports / travel blog: http://flyctory.com/2018/04/10/ode-to...

Yes, now this look like the likely opponents - Argentina - Away Great Britain - Home Australia - Home ( Florian said home but the last match in 2002 was in Australia, after that I think they gave us a walkover when it was to be held in India, perhaps that does not count as it is not shown on DC sit...
