It's one of the traditions in Davis Cup: The week after the semifinals, the draw gets made for the following year. An important date for David, shaping his plans, his schedule and probably also his expectations for the next season.
- Or at least, that's how it used to be.
This time, nobody knows whether David will play another season, another year of Davis Cup.
In the words of Martin Jaite:
We have to wait and see what David decides about his future. He has been a leader these last few years and it depends on whether he continues to play, or not. If he wants to, he'll be part of the team.In other words, Jaite as well doesn't know yet whether or not David will go on playing. David probably doesn't know yet, himself. But just in case, here's the Davis Cup draw 2013.
Argentina has been drawn into the bottom half (* indicates home team):
Israel vs France*
Germany vs Argentina*
Austria vs Kazakhstan*
Switzerland* vs Czech Republic
Another Davis Cup season, another first-round tie against Germany for Argentina, only that next year (February 1-3) they'll meet at the Parque Roca. In the quarterfinal, Argentina would have another home tie against France but would have to travel to Israel. While another possible semifinal against the Czech Republic would of course mean an away tie for Argentine, this time.
