Tough draw

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport - BY SI­MON GRIVER

Andy Ram be­lieves that Is­rael will need to over­come all the odds to re­gain their place in the Davis Cup World Group af­ter be­ing drawn away to Ja­pan in the play­offs.

The match in Septem­ber will see Dudi Sela (64), Amir Wein­traub (191), along with dou­bles spe­cial­ists Jonathan Er­lich and Ram, take on a Ja­panese team that fea­tures three play­ers in the top 100, led by Kei Nishikori (17).

Ram said: “This is the most dif­fi­cult draw we could have got. We’ll ar­rive de­ter­mined to reach the World Group and I be­lieve we have a chance.”
