The Russian tennis team will travel to the United States at the end of November to defend its Davis Cup title against the U.S. team
The Russian tennis team will travel to the United States at the end of November to defend its Davis Cup title against the U.S. team. The Russians won their trip to the final after a tough match against the German team over the weekend. After the first two days of play, Shamil Tarpishchev's team trailed 2-1 to the Germans, eventually triumphing 3-2. The match was held in Moscow. Russia's Igor Andreyev, who brought the team the first and the final points, said he looked forward to playing against the United States, who beat Sweden 4-1 over the weekend. "It's going to be a great final. We played them last year in Moscow [in the semifinals] and it will be exciting to play them in the States. They have a great team, but we have a good chance of victory," Andreyev said, in an interview posted on the official Davis Cup Web site. The Russian team captain Tarpishchev said the match in the U.S. will be all about the side's preparation. "We know they will play on a fast, hard court so it's all about good preparation and if all the guys are in fine condition, then it will be the five that were here that will go to the USA," he said. According to a poll conducted by the official Davis Cup Web site, the U.S. is the favorite to win the final, with 60% of over 5,530 respondents voting for the American squad. The 2006 Davis Cup title was Russia's second in five years, but it was its first on home soil. In 2002, the Russian team shocked French fans in Paris by winning the competition, coming back from 2-1 down after the first two days of play.
