Ferrer’s returns everything his compatriot throws at him; his grunts reverberating around the empty RK Khanna Stadium The poster boys of Spanish tennis were the first ones to occupy the court on Monday And they’ve taken it upon themselves to end Spain’s long absence from the Davis Cup World Group by ensuring they beat India this weekend “It’s tough for us not to be in the World Group” Nadal admits after a 90-minute training session “We have to return there” The pain of not being among the world’s elite was apparent in Nadal’s voice For two years Spain have been dawdling in the wilderness of the lower rungs of the Davis Cup This is a team that has won the title five times since turn of the century and boasts of nearly a dozen players in the top 50 of world rankings Group I of the Davis Cup is not where they belong Or so they feel “We have a lot of good players in top 100 We are looking forward to come back to the World Group” Nadal reiterates Spain’s Davis Cup slide began in Sao Paolo two years ago It was a September that hurts them even today They had been on a downward spiral for some time back then but the World Group playoff tie in Brazil aggravated the situation It triggered massive upheaval in Spanish tennis and a tie that also explains why the European giants have decided to come with players ranked fourth and 13th in the world to take on a team that does not even have a representative in the top 100 After losing to Germany in February 2014 Spain had to travel to Brazil in September to return to the World Group Nadal was recovering from a wrist injury and Ferrer had made himself unavailable so they went with virtually a third-string side (which by the way had all players in the top 100) Roberto Bautista Agut and Pablo Andujar were expected to win their singles tie and the general feeling was the tie would be a cakewalk for Spain Going into tailspin Brazil after all had just one player in Thomaz Belluci who could cause some trouble But even he was ranked much below the two Spaniards As it turned out Belluci won both his singles rubbers in stunning fashion while also winning the doubles tie to win 3-1 Suddenly Spain found themselves out of the world group for the first time since 1996 That defeat opened a can of worms in Spanish tennis First Carlos Moya resigned as the non-playing captain citing the difficulty to convince top players to play Davis Cup as an issue That was followed by a sexism row when Gala Leon was appointed as Spain’s first female Davis Cup captain Toni Nadal Rafa’s uncle wondered publicly over a woman’s appointment as the captain of men’s team A players’ revolt followed and they eventually did not back Leon She was sacked just before Spain’s Group 1 quarterfinal against Russia Despite the mess it was unthinkable that Spain – now captained by Conchita Martinez – would lose to Russia even though they travelled once again without Nadal and Ferrer Like India Russia too did not have a single player in the top 100 of singles ranking But they somehow conceded a 2-0 advantage to lose 3-2 The defeat was disastrous for them leaving them stranded in the Group I of Europe/Africa Zone Under Martinez though they have gradually picked up the pieces showing hunger to return to the World Group Having paid the price of not fielding a full-strength squad twice it isn’t surprising that Spain selected the best available players at their disposal – even it means making their two best players sweat it out in sultry conditions after a grueling few weeks on tour “But it’s special motivation you know to represent the country There’s always confrontation when you are not playing at home so it is difficult India will be playing at home in front of home crowd in conditions they chose” Nadal says “But we are looking

midfielder Dietmar Hamann believes bitter rivals Manchester United will have the edge on the Merseyside club when they meet in a high-profile Premier League clash at Old Trafford on Sunday After a mixed start to the season sixth-placed United are on an 11-game unbeaten run in the league and have closed the gap on the top four to just three points Hamann believes home manager Jose Mourinho has the best squad in the league and with momentum on their side could be difficult to stop for second-placed Liverpool this weekend “Whether a 10-point lead for Chelsea is too much I’m not sure but I still believe United have the most talented squad and once Mourinho’s teams get going they can be very hard to stop” Hamann told Sky Sports “You’ve got to watch out for them in every competition and

have spent the opening few days of their tour doing what most visitors do upon arriving in the Caribbean They’ve been out and about incessantly soaking in the West Indian sun and getting the feel of the soft sand underneath their feet in Basetterre the capital of the tear-drop shaped island of St Kitts Apart from demanding that you be outdoors at all times it’s also a part of the world that coaxes you into letting the hair down maybe even be a tad uninhibited Share This Article Related Article Watch Video: What’s making news Probably that’s the reason why for once even the most protected team in world cricket has decided to allow the rest of the world a candid look at their life on tour The pictures that have expectedly gone viral not only show Virat Kohli & Co performing some intense yoga drills on the hotel lawn they also have them in the midst of a game of beach volleyball — of all sports — with some of them the captain included not shy of baring their rather chiseled upper torsos To boot they have also released a video where Stuart Binny — an understandable choice considering his wife’s a seasoned TV presenter — is seen telling us about the team’s movements so far and trying his best to commentate on his teammates’ sand-inspired indulgence Another photo shows Kohli Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan looking very satisfied after what looks to have been a sumptuous meal To the Indian Test captain’s credit uninhibited is a term that can confidently also be used for the type of cricket his young team have played since he took over last year They came from behind to beat the spirited Sri Lankans in their backyard before opting for a much-debated ploy of spin-oriented wickets to derail the South Africans at home Now they are looking at an extended Test season at home where they will play 13 Tests against the who’s who of world cricket It’s ironic then that the prelude to that brings them to the farthest cricket destination for an Indian team On Saturday they begin the cricket segment of their 52-day long tour with a two-day warm-up game against West Indies Board President’s XI at the Warner Park Cricket Stadium And a day earlier they assembled at the same venue for their first of many practice sessions on tour Warming up for the grind Two-day practice matches are anyway nothing more than glorified practice sessions with the visiting team getting a chance to dedicate a day each for their batsmen and bowlers respectively to get acclimatized And it’s likely that the Indians will treat this game in a similar vein and try to be more competitive in their second warm-up game which will be a three-day affair at the same ground a week later As it turns out it will be a chance to acclimatize for a number of players in the opposition line-up as well over the weekend For the West Indian selection committee with their newly-appointed chairman Courtney Browne have opted for a team that has six players with Test records five of whom have been part of the West Indian playing XI on multiple occasions over the past 12 months The team will be led by Guyanese left-hander Leon Johnson who surprisingly has found himself on the sidelines despite having made a very good first impression at the highest level unlike many of the others who have since played Tests and are part of the President’s XI While the likes of Rajendra Chandrika and Shai Hope average below 20 and still find themselves in the mix Johnson’s Test average presently stands at 3928 and he was the leading run-scorer in this year’s domestic first-class competition averaging 5764 At a time when the West Indian Test line-up is desperately missing the services of a legendary Guyanese left-hander that it turned its back on the time is perfect for Johnson to stake a serious claim in the middle-order or even as opener — considering he scored 66 and 41 when he opened against Bangladesh Johnson apart the other five were all on the ill-fated tour to Australia West Indies’ last Test series where they were utterly humiliated And much like the Indians it will be a good chance for Chandrika Hope and Shane Dowrich — the Barbados wicket-keeper batsman expected to take over the gloves from Denesh Ramdin in the Tests — to get a crucial sneak-peek at the bowlers they will be facing over the next month-and-a-half That they are pretty much all the West Indian selectors have to pick from for the Test line-up is a fair indicator of why their Test team languishes at eighth on the table presently making the visitors favourites despite their Test team coming together for the first time since December last year Big boys play CPL While the second-string West Indians look to get an early taste of the Indians at Basetterre the more high-profile West Indians are busy being the flavour of the CPL season elsewhere in the Caribbean The Indians might be all set to get used to their whites again but a number of big names they shared IPL dressing-rooms with only a month ago are still to get off the T20 caravan in 2016 Only three days ago AB de Villiers and Kieron Pollard were at Warner Park smashing Barbados Tridents to a fabulous finish The ground has been the scene for a number of high scores in the CPL this season and it’ll be a good pitch for the Indian batsmen to get into their grooves Maybe some of the batsmen will be happy that their own team management will not have any say in how the pitches are prepared It will also be a good challenge for the Indian bowlers to get used to conditions that are unlikely to make life easy for them The first Test will be held at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua another ground known for its fondness for batsmen and runs West Indies Test captain Jason Holder had scored his maiden Test ton the last time a game was held there with the home team holding off a resurgent England last year And it will be a good batting wicket even when India get there in the third week of July And having already gotten themselves in
