NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 17 – Kenya must prepare for a tough battle against Indonesia in a match that will determine who plays in the Davis Cup Group II category on March 6 and 7.

Head coach Rosemary Owino said the country will have to wade into unknown waters as they face off against the Asian giants for the first time ever.

“We shall review clips from their previous performances to understand their strengths and weaknesses,” said Owino, “It is a new assignment for the team and we hope to soak up the pressure and deliver. Preparations have started for Davis Cup 2020.”

Kenya, who were promoted along with Namibia to the Davis Cup Group II play-off stage, must win against Indonesia to avoid being relegated to Africa Group III.

Tennis Kenya President James Kenani said the country must have a better strategy on how to tackle Indonesia. “We will work with the team to find out their budget and then plan accordingly with the coach,” said Kenani.

The winner between Kenya and Indonesia will go on to compete in Group II proper and fight it out with teams dropping down from the Group I playoffs.

After the draws for the 2020 Davis Cup World Group I and World Group II playoffs, a total of 36 competitions will be played on a home-and-away basis.
