My Davis Cup Experience

Hi everyone,

Being part of the Davis Cup environment here in Hamburg with the Australia’s Davis Cup Team has been the most memorable and enjoyable experience for me, even though they went down in the 5th rubber, it has definitely taught me how important the team atmosphere is, they are a great bunch of guys, so I am really keen to ensure we have that same great team feel in our Junior Davis Cup team and I can see how critical it is to success. I now head to Spain, Barcelona with the other Junior Davis Cup team members and captain Mark Woodforde. The key to our success against the Spanish team will be for us to play to our potential. The Spanish team will be tough because it is being played on clay, and while it is not our favourite surface but we are certainly not afraid of it.

‘‘I am confident that we have a very talented team, a good captain who will give us the benefit of his enormous experience and I think we can get a good result.’’

Here is a link to my story on my Davis Cup experience. I will be back in 2 weeks to play some Aussie Futures before the Australian Open summer starts. See you then 🙂
