JOHANNESBURG – South Africa’s Davis Cup team captain Marcos Ondruska has named a competitive squad to take on Bulgaria in a Euro/Africa Group II tie at the Kelvin Grove Tennis Club in Cape Town on the weekend of September 13-14.
The four-man team is a mixture of experience and young talent, including Lloyd Harris, Raven Klaasen, Ruan Roelofse and Philip Henning.
Tennis South Africa (TSA) on Tuesday also announced that a trio of next-generation young players will join the squad as practice partners for the week.
