South Africa will play Bulgaria in Davis Cup action this weekend, as Cape Town will host this key Euro Africa Group H tie at the Kelvin Grove Club in Newlands.

It is the first time in almost two decades that Mother City will host Davis Cup action, and Team South Africa’s captain Marcos Ondruska says he is excited to be back in the city, as are the players like Lloyd Harris, who hails from the city.

Ondruska says they are not too sure what to expect from Bulgaria, but have been doing their homework, and are keeping a keen eye on their opponents during this training week.

Ondruska has also roped in Jeff Coetzee as a coaching consultant, and he is delighted to have him on board.

Coetzee only flew into South Africa on Sunday after coaching Colombians Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah, who won the US Open Doubles Title last week. he says he is delighted to be home after the victory.

The doubles expert was part of the last Davis Cup team to play in the Cape, and he says he is looking forward to an exciting week in the city. – Report by Rob Delport
