Dudi Sela is confident Israel can beat Austria in next week's Davis Cup World Group relegation playoff.
Having bowed out of the US Open in the second round against 12th seed Mikhael Youzhny, Sela has high hopes ahead of the match at the Nokia Arena in Tel Aviv.
"If we play good tennis then I think the crowd will make the difference in our favour," Sela said.
The crucial tie will start a day early to allow Israel's players to observe Yom Kippur. Ian Froman, the head of the Israeli Tennis Federation confirmed that there will be "a 24-hour break".
