Tennis - Tie to be played either on hardcourts or on clay
Tennis - Belgian David Goffin has revealed that the Davis Cup tie between Belgium and Italy in April will be held indoors, either on clay or on hardcourt. In an interview to Ubitennis, Goffin said, "It will be indoors, because in Belgium in the period after Miami the weather is not that great looking.The captain asked us players, we still have to decide, do not know if it would be better for us to keep on the hard since you come from Miami, or if you start playing on the clay, since soon after Davis Cup will start the season on clay."
Speaking about missing the first round of the Davis Cup against Germany, Goffin says, "You know, I always try to give everything for my country, for the first time this year I decided not to play the first round against Germany, I was exhausted, and I could not give 100%. But there was a huge surprise, Steve has played two crazy match, and then we won twice, really great, I'm so glad he was able to go through. So this year we are also in the quarterfinals, and I can play against Italy. It will be nice to play the quarters at home again, and in fact, I think we will have a good chance, it will be 50% and 50% in Italy. We have good players, there is Steve, and a good doubles team. But Italy has a solid team, you never know who will take the field and play, and if you will be at its best level. Lorenzi, is always there at its peak, then with Fabio never know if you expect him to play his best tennis or not, whether he will be motivated or not, and this year he is playing again solid, he had a great Australian Open. So we'll see, it will be interesting, it's never easy to play games for your country."
