New Israeli captain Amos Mansdorf is hoping his team can make home advantage count in the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas Europe/Africa Zone Group I tie which starts on Wednesday.
Mansdorf believes in the past that the Israel Fed Cup team have not used the support, home comforts and familiar food that playing is Eilat provides to their benefit. He is optimistic he can improve on this during the Zone Group event this week.
Mansdorf is a former Israeli Davis Cup player and captain and believes his experience in those fields can help him get his team 'mentally ready and performing well' on home turf.
