Forced to abandon their grass court game plan and host Spain on hard court in New Delhi at the Davis Cup World Group playoff tie next month, India have a lot to worry about.Spain, certainly, wasnt an opponent India was hoping to tussle with for a spot in the World Group. This is the worst-possible draw we could have got, says India Davis Cup non-playing captain Anand Amritraj. Worse still, India will be playing them on hard court. Having run out of options with regard to hosting the tie on grass, the AITA, on Tuesday, was forced to pick Delhi Lawn Tennis Associations (DLTA) hard courts as the venue. Logistics and the monsoons stood in the way of Indias plans of offering the visitors a less-favourable playing surface.Chandigarh Club, which hosted the grass court tie against South Korea in July this year, was in the running to do so again but fell short on the organizational front. A 4,000 seating capacity - a mandatory prerequisite for hosting a World Group playoff tie - wasnt met. Even setting it up would have cost anywhere between Rs 25-30 lakhs only to be pulled down after the tie. It was not economically viable, says an AITA official, DLTA fits the bill on all fronts. We didnt have much of a choice.The venue sorted, the primary worry remains - playing five-time champions Spain. A look at our singles field only helps affirm the misgivings. At 157, Yuki Bhambri, Indias highest-ranked player hasnt played much tennis over the past three months, courtesy an elbow injury. He is likely to play in the US Open qualifying later this month. Former top pro Somdev Devvarman, who finds himself languishing at No 431 in the rankings, is recovering from an injury and is nowhere to be seen on the circuit. As for Ramkumar Ramanathan and Saketh Myneni, its going to be a very tall order. This is going to be the toughest tie weve played, Yuki says.Indias performance at the previous two World Group playoff ties -- against Serbia and Czech Republic - hasnt been flattering.dddddddddddd They lost to Serbia 2-3 in 2014, before going down to the Czechs 1-3 in Delhi last year, to find themselves slipping back to the zonal competition. Yuki hasnt played in months. To be able to play five sets you have to be in really good shape. On grass court, we at least had a fighting chance and could have made a match of it. Honestly, Im worried. Against most other teams we could at least hope for an outside chance, Amritraj adds, Even without their top players, Spain will be extremely tough to beat given the depth in their side. Without a singles player in the top 100, it is near-impossible for us to make the World Group.Even if Spain fields the same side it did against Romania, winning 4-1, last month, India will have a lot to worry about. The likes of Feliciano Lopez, Roberto Bautista Agut and Pablo Carreno Busta could pose a serious challenge to Indias ambitions. Both Agut and Lopez are ranked in the top 20. On grass at least, since all our guys serve decently, it can be pushed to a tie break and then things can go either way, adds Amritraj, When youre up against players who return this well, its hard to hold serve six times. If we win the doubles rubber, we can push matters to a third day, pretty much like Romania did. But unless we can do something in the singles, it wont really make a difference to the eventual result.India would be hoping to find a comforting ally in the searing conditions in New Delhi- one that could leave the Spaniards ruffled. Last year, Czech No 1 Jiri Vesely was done in by New Delhis humid conditions against Somdev on the first day, before India eventually went on to lose the tie. We just have to go out there and give our best. Weve nothing to lose, adds Amritraj. ' ' '
