Johannesburg - The South Africa Davis Cup team received a timely boost ahead of Friday's Euro-Africa Group One tie at the Park Tivoli in Ljubljana as Slovenia did not include their number one player in the singles line up.
"He (Zemlja) has been included for Saturday's doubles match and, he could still be brought back to play in the final singles match on Sunday," De Jager said.
The deciding factor in what now appears two reasonably well-balanced teams is how the South Africans will cope on what is expected to be an ultra-slow clay surface.Thursday's draw:
Blaz Rola (Slovenia) v Rik de Voest (South Africa)
Blaz Kavcic (Slovenia) v Ruan Roelofse (South Africa)
Grega Zemlja and Janez Semrajc (Slovernia) v Raven Klassen and Ruan Roelofse (South Africa).
