Igor Zelenay before Davis Cup in Australia: I want to win the doubles

Igor Zelenay, Davis Cup, Australia, doubles

Igor Zelenay together with Andrej Martin represent EMPIRE Tennis Academy in Australian under the flag of Slovakian Davis Cup team. We interviewed Igor before the play-off match for the World Group, about his expectations and what does he think about the strengths of the rivals.

Zelenay played challenger in Genoa before going to Australia for Davis Cup and together with German Kretschmer were eliminated in 2nd round by Peralta/Zeballos from Chile/Argentina. "The are difficult opponents, they won two ATP tournaments this year. I was bit tired when I got back home because I had to take two flights from Italy," said Igor Zelenay, who is already in Sydney, Australia.

Strong line up led by Nick Kyrgios, Bernard Tomic, Sam Groth and John Peers awaits Slovakian team. Subs are John Millman and James Duckworth. "They are also strong in doubles, Peers but especially Groth serves well. It will be extremely difficult on grass; they might be unstoppable on serve. They are the favourites, they are higher in the ranking but we can always surprise. I hope the atmosphere will be great," said Igor Zelenay.

Igor Zelenay will play doubles with his colleague from EMPIRE Tennis Academy Andrej Martin. They won together in July in Budapest against Hungary, also won against Romania last year. "I enjoy playing doubles with Andrej. It’s great we communicate in Slovak. I hope we have a good match and we achieve result like in Hungary or Romania, where we surprised. We want to win the doubles point for Slovakia," said Igor Zelenay. He continues in St. Petersburg, Mons and Orléans after the Davis Cup.
