Australia forfeit Davis Cup

Lleyton Hewitt
Dokic and Stosur destroyed Switzerland in the Fed Cup but Australia is forfeiting the Davis Cup tie against India. This means a one year ban for Lleyton and Co and more money for lawyers as everyone tries to argue exactly how likely are you to be blown to bits playing in India and whether that risk is worth playing. You get the sense Australia was never going to Chennai and the Indians are desperate to show that India can host world class sporting events. However since India moved its million dollar IPL cricket tournament because of security concerns - and in India cricket > tennis – and Australian cricket teams have been extremely reluctant to tour the subcontinent in recent years (but mainly Pakistan and Sri Lanka) this was always going to be a problem. Meanwhile now Hewitt may never play D-Cup again

Nadal versus Davydenko and Ferrer against Gonzalez in Barcelona. All Spanish final anyone?
