Davis Cup captain Johan Van Herck has announced his team for the Davis Cup match against Brazil in Ostend. He counts on Ruben (ATP-181), David Goffin (ATP-14), Steve Darcis (ATP-106) and Joris De Loore (ATP-219).
Van Herck motivates his choice as follows: "We have taken into account the surface, the potential of the team during this encounter, the results of the last few weeks, the experience in Davis Cup and the attitude of the players. With David Goffin, Steve Darcis and Ruben I can count on three players who brought our country to the final last year."
The Brazilian team is composed of Thomaz Bellucci (ATP 65), Thiago Monteiro (ATP-98) and double specialists Marcelo Melo (ATP D-3) and Bruno Soares (ATP D-8).
