Ex-US Open winner Dominic Thiem, who completed intensive training with Dennis Novak on Wednesday, is also involved in the qualifying round on Saturday (2 p.m.) and Sunday (1 p.m.). To the delight of captain Jürgen Melzer, the former world number 3 left behind. made a good impression after tearing a muscle fiber in his ribs in Melbourne.

“Domi did a very good training session with Dennis today, at a very good, very high level. He didn’t have any complaints. We’re very much on target there,” stated Melzer. The Austrian record Davis Cup man also reported on the conditions in the hall at the Zamet sports center.

“The conditions are good. The course is very fair, a bit slower almost than I expected. The ball bounces well too, so it suits both teams well.”

Naturally, Melzer has not yet commented on the line-up, but an injury-free Thiem is considered a fixed starter, as is the Alexander Erler/Lucas Miedler double. “Of course I have an idea in my head. I would like to wait for the next training sessions, then I will decide on Friday.”

The away trip began on Tuesday with a “rather long bus trip”. “But the city of Rijeka welcomed us with very nice weather and a very nice hotel.” The winner of the international competition qualifies for the lucrative final round in autumn.
