Cuppers ready against Indons

Longtime tennis sports patron and Davis Cup team manager Jean Henri Lhuillier has expressed confidence about the team’s chances in next week’s tie with Indonesia citing the intense preparations being made by the team.

The Philippines hosts Indonesia in the first round of the Zonal tennis tournament on Feb. 3-5 at the Philippine Columbian Association shell-clay courts in Paco, Manila.

“We have assembled a very strong squad that is a combination of youth and experience. All of them have been competing a lot and have toughened up in international competitions and have been doing well,” said Lhuillier.

Treat Huey, ranked 22nd in the men’s doubles in the world, banners the host squad that includes Francis Casey Alcantara, Ruben Gonzales and world-class junior netter Alberto Lim Jr.
