Anand Amritraj Statement: India must exploit Danish players’ weakness on grass: Anand Amritraj

India News, New Delhi:

Anand Amritraj Statement: Two-time US Open quarter-finalist, former Indian tennis player Anand Amritraj, believes the hosts are firm favourites to win their Davis Cup World Group I playoff tie against Denmark on March 4 and 5 here. But for that to happen, the Indians must exploit the Danish players’ weakness on faster grass courts of the Delhi Gymkhana Club (DGC), since the visitors prefer playing on slow hard courts or clay surfaces.

“The fact that we got the opportunity to hold matches on grass will be a massive
advantage. Danish players will be used to slow hard courts or clay surfaces, and they will not prefer the faster grass courts one bit,” Amritraj opined. “India needs to capitalise on this and prove they are superior grass players. However, it will not be a straight forward task. But I really reckon that we are firm favourites,” he added.

Anand, brother of Indian tennis legend Vijay Amritraj, was part of the country’s Davis Cup squad that reached the final of the ‘World Cup of Tennis’ in 1974. The team, however, refused to take the court against South Africa due to the nation’s apartheid policy. The junior Amritraj was also part of the Davis Cup team that reached the final against Sweden in 1987. Vijay was, incidentally, the captain. (Anand Amritraj Statement)

When quizzed about the relevance of Davis Cup in the current era that celebrates Grand
Slam culture so much, Anand said, “Davis Cup is an emotion. It is without a doubt, the
World Cup of tennis. Playing for your country is different from playing for individual
milestones, and that is a novelty that is hard to come by.” The winner of the two-day
rubber will qualify for the World Group I stage that are scheduled to happen later this
year. (Anand Amritraj Statement)
