We all have to do well to make sure we get the win,” was Mynenis terse reply. “I think it will be a battle to the finish and my preparation in the last couple of weeks will bring the best out of me.” Ramanathan says he is a bit nervous but has full faith in his abilities as well in the guidance he is getting from the team. “I am playing for India and its a dream come true, playing alongside Leander (Paes) and Rohan (Bopanna). I have been in the team so I know how it works but there is always pressure but I will try to win it for the team. I want to play some aggressive tennis,” the 21-year-old said. Coach Zeeshan says, now is the time for both the junior players of the side to show their worth. “Davis Cup is different. Playing a live match is always an experience. Its a great opportunity for these guys. We have relied so much on Somdev and Yuki. They have done well for us but now its turn of Ram (Ramanathan) and Saketh (Myneni) to pull it off. “There is always pressure, no matter how much you convince but these boys are handling it quite well.” The coach also said that no one should make the mistake of taking the Koreans light despite their low rankings. “Look they may be ranked outside but you need to know why. They spend good amount of time with their Army and as a result do not play much in Tour. Thats why that ranking. The quality of their game is high. Its never easy against the Koreans,” Zeeshan said. Captain Amrittraj is more worried about the lack of experience of the singles players. “Ours is a brand new team. They have never played five sets, never played live rubber. They are complete novices, thats my concern. Its huge for them.” PTI AT SSC SSCadvertisementlast_img read more
