Davis Cup – Tennis Albiceleste Prepares For Dutch Arrival

Well it looks like it’s another year and another brand new start for our Davis Cup team as they prepare to take on the Netherlands in their first round tie. Many changes have taken place in this team since last year’s heroic run to the final.

Tito VASQUEZ is the new captain, taking over the helm from Alberto MANCINI. Furthermore it is also a brand new line up with seasoned players like David NALBANDIAN and Juan Martin DEL POTRO are not present for this round.

This time they will be lead by Juan MONACO and Juan Ignacio CHELA. Alongside them are Lucas Arnold-KER and Martin Vassallo ARGUELLO and together they are the symbol of a revamped home team. CHELA returns to the team after a two years absence.
“I am happy to be in the team again” CHELA said. “Playing in Buenos Aires is very special, I am very excited. I did not expect to be so quickly back in the team, but some things happened, the chance was there, and I am happy to play”.

On paper I don’t really see any trouble from the Oranje Tennis team considering the level of experience from both sides (they best player Jesse Huta GALUNG is ranked No.188 in the World). Then again, this is the Davis Cup where nothing is certain.

The full draw is as follows:

Juan Ignacio CHELA v Jesse Huta GALUNG
Juan MONACO v Thiemo De BAKKER

Lucas Arnold-KER/Martin Vasallo ARGUELLO v Jesse Huta GALUNG/Rogier WASSEN

Juan MONACO v Jesse Huta GALUNG
Juan Ignacio CHELA v Thiemo De BAKKER

Go team Argentina! I hope Juan Monaco uses this experience to get good results during the lead-up to RG.
