Hangar showdown excites Melzer

Audio interview

If Austria is to upset France in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group first round then Jurgen Melzer will need to be playing his best tennis.

The world No. 10 leads the Austrians into battle against a talented French team, albeit slightly depleted with the news that both Gael Monfils and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga are set to miss out through injury.

The tie is being staged on clay in the unusual surroundings of a hangar at Vienna airport, and Melzer is hoping that this home advantage will help Austria record a first ever Davis Cup victory over France.
