Sri Lanka defeats Spain, 4-1!!
On an indoor court, this was no contest. Ganeshwaran shows that our doubles team is going to be in a bad way without Mooljee -- we still lost most of the matches with him, but Ujjaval's new partner has never reached the Top 1000 in singles or top 500 in doubles. Until Mehul goes doubles, it's going to be pretty ugly. Still, we get the job done easily as there was absolutely zero drama in singles, and we've clinched the group. China will wrap things up, and they haven't won a set yet. That'll be a joke of an encounter in a couple months. The Italy-Spain winner will be worth watching though, as the loser is done for the year.
Coming Up ...
We're now in the first extended break of the season. Everyone has the next few weeks off, until Indian Wells or close to it.
