After departing from Buenos Aires yesterday evening and a sixteen-hour trip via Paris and Nuremberg, David and the rest of the team (except Juan Monaco and Juan Ignacio Chela, who have both reached the semifinal at Viña del Mar) have now arrived in Bamberg. From the Argentine summer to "9 degrees (Celsius) below zero, snow everywhere but sunny", as the first impressions were described on the AAT's Twitter.
The first training session is planned already for tomorrow afternoon, at the Tennis Arena in Forchheim, southeast of Bamberg (see pic), which has been appointed as the Argentine team's training camp, also for Monday. Usually, Monday before the tie is when training at the venue itself begins. But in this case, basketball (for which the Stechert Arena is mostly used) got in the way, with a league game scheduled for Sunday night. So the court will be laid at the Stechert Arena on Monday and training there will start for both teams on Tuesday.
