HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam will depart for Morocco tomorrow to take part in the Davis Cup’s World Group II Play-offs.
The team won their berth after winning the Group III Asia-Pacific in Singapore last year.
It is the first time that Việt Nam, world No 60, will play the hosts, who are No 59, on March 6-7 on a clay court at the Royal Tennis Club de Marrakech in Marrakech.
Việt Nam’s best player Nguyễn Hoàng Nam, world No 710, and rising star Nguyễn Văn Phương are competing at the M15 Sharm El Sheikh event in Egypt. They will join with their teammates later.
Meanwhile Lamine Ouahab is the highlight of Morocco. The 35 year-old is No 644 but he used to rank No 114.
If they win, Việt Nam will win a berth at the World Group competition in September, and if lose, they will drop to Group III Asia Pacific. — VNS
