Davis Cup next round in Lebanon

By Revata S. Silva

The next round of the Davis Cup for Sri Lanka this year, the Asia-Oceania Zone Group-II Relegation Play-off, will be held from April 5 to 7 in Jounieh, Lebanon against the Lebanese national team.

"It’s confirmed that the tie will be played in Lebanon. It will be held on clay which is more or less similar to clay surfaces which we find in Sri Lanka," said Sri Lanka’s Non-playing Captain Rohan de Silva on Monday, March 11.

There is a strong likelihood that the team which lost 3-2 in the Davis Cup first round against Pakistan in February in Colombo will remain unchanged for this relegation play-off too where the losing nation will be demoted to the zonal Group-II next year.

Harshana Godamanna, Rajeev Rajapakse, Thangarajah Dineshkanthan and Amresh Jayawickrema played for Sri Lanka against Pakistan.
