Sweet: Israel beats Sweden in Davis Cup

I think I'm going to become a tennis fan. In a match held without fans while hostile Islamists marched outside, Israel defeated Sweden in the Davis Cup 3-2 to move on to the quarterfinals for the first time since 1987!
Harel Levy beat Andreas Vinciguerra 6-4, 4-6, 6-4, 3-6, 8-6 to decide the World Group first-round series in a near-empty arena.

Dudi Sela had leveled the series earlier Sunday by wearing out Thomas Johansson 3-6, 6-1, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2.

Vinciguerra saved two match points but botched a forehand to lose his serve and the final set. The jubilant Israeli team ran out on the court and hoisted Levy in the air.

In the previous match, Sela got so upset when he lost the third set he cracked his racket against the indoor carpet. The burst of anger appeared to have energized the Israeli, who broke Johansson's serve in the first game of the fourth.

Meanwhile, Johansson, playing his second match since October following heel surgery, was showing signs of fatigue. He struggled with unforced errors and lost the set when his backhand return went wide.

"I knew I had to play long points and keep him on the court as long as possible. I think it paid off," Sela said.

Johansson admitted he lost steam in the fourth set.

"When your body stops there is not much you can do," the 2002 Australian Open champion said. "It's just agony to stay out there. You know that if he doesn't break his leg there is no chance."

Johansson could not longer put up a fight in the final set, allowing Sela to break his serve twice and go 4-0 up to the delight of a small group of Israeli special guests.

Sela lost four match points before the Swede botched a return to give Israel the victory.
Do you believe in miracles? Take that you sons of apes and pigs!

I still think it wasn't worth it. I wouldn't give Malmo the time of day!

@Norman F

Actually I think the match will help to unseat the ruling leftists in the Malmö local council, and for those who have followed the on-line comments in the major newspapers it has been a revelation. The silent majority does not seem to be silent any longer. But it is going to be difficult to change things around- basically there is only one political party that is Israel friendly; the Swedish Democrats (SD).....but, hush, don't tell Charles Johnson at LGF.

@ Carl,

Congratulations to a hard fought victory. All four singles matches went the full distance - actually it was the longest DC-match Sweden has ever played. And Sweden has played in the Davis Cup tournament since 1925(!!). Also, Sweden has never lost a DC-tie when they have gone into the lead by 2-1 the third day. So, quite a historic match.

Given that it was so close, the extra advantage afforded by a full stadium rooting for the home players could very likely have tipped the advantage to the Swedes. But how does the saying go? Palis (and leftists) never miss a chance to miss a chance...

I just wrote about the same thing.

I'm no tennis fan by any means, but a lot of satisfaction built up inside me after I heard the news of the victory.

Justice has been--SERVED! :-)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. And this revenge was sweet.
