Oddity Of Placing Davis Cup Quarterfinal Tie In Boise Generating Local Interest
Published April 5, 2013
HOPING FOR THE BEST: In Boise, Chadd Cripe noted Patton was "hoping for a sellout, which appears unlikely, but the event has sold more than 8,000 tickets for each of the three days." That would more than "double the attendance for the first-round tie in Jacksonville, Fla. (three-day total of 10,815)." Ryan said that the sales have been "in the same range as other similar home ties." The "capacity this week is 11,000." Ryan: "Eight thousand is something we'd be really pleased with" (IDAHO STATESMAN, 4/3). TENNIS.com's Matt Cronin noted Djokovic, who "grew up in the mountains of Serbia," said that Boise will be the "highest altitude he's ever played in his career." Djokovic: "I've played in high altitude before in my life, but not matches. ... This is the highest that I'm going to play ever in my life. And it makes a difference" (TENNIS.com, 4/4).
