Max Mirnyi joins Belarusian men's tennis team for Davis Cup World Group playoffs

Maxim Mirnyi joined the men's national tennis team of Belarus. The athlete arrived to Switzerland late due to the hurricane Irma, which made changes to air traffic.

On the Swiss court, the famous Belarusian tennis player has already conducted the first training session. "We will give all of us, 120%. Of course, we will fight only for the victory," the website of the Belarusian Tennis Federation quotes Max Mirnyi as saying.

Maxim Mirnyi:
The mood is militant. I am glad that we have gathered today in this squad and we are doing the work for which we have come here. We will give 120% of our efforts. Of course, we will fight only for victory. Switzerland is not in its strongest squad now. This gives us additional inspiration and hope that our team can fight with any opponent!

Belarus take on Switzerland on Sep. 15-17. At stake is the Davis Cup World Group. In the first match, Henri Laaksonen takes on Yaraslau Shyla.
