Re: World Group II play-offs: Poland vs Spain
Spaniards haven't arrived yet. Team containing 15 people, which flew from Spain through Frankfurt, was supposed to come to Gdańsk-Rębiechowo airport at 5:30 PM on Monday, but all flights were cancelled today - told Katarzyna Posłuszny from Polish Tennis Association - We hope that Spanish team will manage to arrive on Tuesday.
On Tuesday Polish players should come - Agnieszka Radwańska, Marta Domachowska, Klaudia Jans and Alicja Rosolska.
On Tuesday evening we want to get to know the venue and surface and on Wednesday we'll start normal trainings. We think that three days of trainings will be enough to get prepared. The majority of our team will come to Sopot from Warsaw. Only Agnieszka and her father will come by plane from Kraków. If flights are cancelled tomorrow, Isia should arrive on Wednesday morning which won't destroy our training programme - told Tomasz Wiktorowski, Polish captain.
Meanwhile in Sopot, everything is ready to host the players. In the venue of the match - The hall of Sopot Tennis Club, locker rooms were renewed and the new court was installed. On Saturday the floor was delivered from Olivia Hall of Gdańsk (it was used by Asseco Prokom basketball players) and Taraflex surface was laid on it.
On 24th April (Saturday) two singles matches will be played, on Sunday two singles and deciding doubles.
