Sun­rise is venue for Davis Cup

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY SI­MON GRIVER

TEN­NIS Is­rael will play Ar­gentina in the Davis Cup World Group play­off on Septem­ber 12-14 at the Sun­rise Club in Del­ray Beach, Florida.

The Is­rael Ten­nis Fed­er­a­tion in­sisted that the match can­not be played at home as sched­uled due to the Gaza con­flict.

Is­rael chose the Sun­rise ten­nis club be­cause it has hard-court sur­faces and weather con­di­tions sim­i­lar to its home base in Ramat Hasharon and a large Jewish com­mu­nity in South­ern Florida who will come to cheer on the team.

Is­rael’s top play­ers will now re­main in Amer­ica af­ter the US Open, which be­gins on Mon­day.

Dudi Sela, world-ranked 84, qual­i­fies for the main draw while Jonathan Er­lich will likely team up with In­dia’s Ra­jeev Ram in the US Open be­fore be­ing joined by his vet­eran Is­raeli part­ner of the same name, Andy Ram in the Davis Cup.

Also play­ing i n the US Open will be Ju­lia Glushko (101) and Sha­har Peer (155). Both lost this week in the first qual­i­fy­ing round in New Haven and though on poor form they have slipped in the rank­ings in the past few weeks, it came too late for them to lose their places in the US Open main draw.

Swim stars: L-R Ali­cia Slater, Tali Slater, Eden Kramer, Daniel Rinkoff, Chloe Ja­cobs, Em­manuelle Ben­jamin, Elisha Kramer and Daniel Schindler
