Tomic changes mind, will play Davis Cup

by: Matt Cronin March 23, 2013

Australian Bernard Tomic tells Fox Sports that he has changed his mind and will play Davis Cup against Uzbekistan in Namangan next month.

Tomic said in January that he had no plans to compete in the tie, which came after he was suspended by Davis Cup captain Pat Rafter from February’s Asia/Oceania tie against Chinese Taipei. Tomic and Rafter appear to have mended fences.

“We’re going to train in Munich when everyone’s done here and then play against Uzbekistan,” Tomic said. It’s not going to be a pretty place but I’m looking forward to it. We have got a good team now. I think we should win and Davis Cup is back on the roll for me and I’m going to try my heart out when it comes.”
