2009 Davis cup - Russia - Israel

Hi all,

last Saturday I went to the 2009 Davis cup Israel - Russia tennis match.

It was the 3rd game from a best of 5 tournament when in the first two Israel had won.

This was the couples match between:

Jonathan ERLICH / Andy RAM from Israel


Igor KUNITSYN / Marat SAFIN from Russia.

As you tennis lovers may know, Safin was once the 1st ranked player in the world.

A win and Israel is qualifying to the next round, lose and 2 more games will seal this tournament.

the game length was 3:51 hours in which the Israeli couple had already lead 2:0 but with a great game the Russian team had came back to 2:2 forcing last and crucial set.

The 5th set ended 6:4 to the Israeli team who was able to break the Russian serve only in the last serve of the match.
