TENNIS - Boosted by his Wimbledon performance and a record ranking of 33, Dudi Sela leads the charge as Israel hosts Russia in the Davis Cup quarter-final in Tel Aviv.
Having reached the last 16 at the Grand Slam, Sela said: “It’s very big for Israeli tennis and I’m very excited to play.
“Israel will have 10,000 people screaming every point, and although Russia are favourites, I believe in the Israel team. It’s very important to be united and I think we have a chance.”
