CHANDIGARH -- Heavy rains on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning have cast a spell of doubt over the India- Korea Group I Davis Cup tie that gets underway in Chandigarh on Friday. With the forecast suggesting thunderstorms over the next couple of days, the teams have only but prayers on their mind.?In the instance of further rains, theres a provision for the tie to be extended by a day, which will see two singles rubbers and a doubles rubber on the same day. India would be hoping to wrap up the tie and march towards the World Group playoff.One of the sub-plots to watch out for in the tie will be the chemistry between Rohan Bopanna and Leander Paes. The duo will be playing for India at the Rio Olympics and this will be their only competitive match together before the Games. Bopanna in fact had asked to be paired with Saketh Myneni for Rio, who is also part of the Davis Cup team, but his request was turned down. The relationship between Bopanna and Paes has been the subject of much speculation but during practice they put up a cordial front.The duo of Paes and Bopanna is scheduled to play Hong Chung and Yun Seong Chan on Saturday with the reverse singles slated on Sunday.On grass the game is always more technical and I think we have an advantage. In 1993 we played a rain-affected tie against Switzerland, so we are used to such conditions. As a team we are ready, said Paes.Ramkumar, who will be making his Davis Cup debut, has been drawn to play the opening rubber against Seong Chan Hong while Saketh Myneni will take on Yong Kyu Lim on Friday.Its a good feeling to play on grass and we are hoping Ramkumar will give us an early lead, said Saketh.Missing the services of experienced Chung Hyeon and Lee Duck-hee, Korea will be fielding a second-string team who look far from comfortable playing on grass. Though they arrived more than a week ago to accustom themselves with the conditions, the Koreans concede that grass continues to be a challenging surface.We are not used to playing on grass courts which is why we came early. We have not practiced at the match court yet so thats a problem, non-playing captain Gap-Taik Ro said.Korea last won against India 4-1 in the Asia/Oceania quarterfinal in 2013. India, however, avenged the loss the following year with a 3-1 victory.Draw: Asia/Oceania, Group IFriday: Ramkumar Ramanathan vs Seong Chan Hong, Saketh Myneni vs Yong Kyu LimSaturday: Leander Paes/Rohan Bopanna vs Hong Chung/Yun Seong ChanSunday: Saketh Myneni vs Seong Chan Hong, Ramkumar Ramanathan vs Yong Kyu Lim Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping .

PARIS -- Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette remembered how to take penalties but his teammates forget how to defend in a 3-1 home loss to Guingamp in the French league on Saturday.A fifth defeat in six games heaps the pressure on Lyon coach Bruno Genesio.After finishing second last season, Lyon is down in eighth place and trails leader Nice by 10 points, having played a game more.I sense that I am in difficulty. I wont run away from my responsibilities, Genesio said. Im not thinking about my own situation, we have to face up to this.Lacazette, who scored 48 league goals in the past two seasons, went some way to making up for his midweek penalty miss against Juventus by scoring from the spot near halftime.On Tuesday, his penalty was saved by Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and the miss proved costly as Lyon lost 1-0.But Swedish goalie Karl-Johan Johnsson does not have the presence of Buffon, and Lacazette made no mistake this time, drilling a low shot down the middle as Johnsson gambled wrongly by diving to his right.It was his seventh league goal of the season and third from the spot. The penalty was given after midfielder Maxime Gonalons was fouled by Moustapha Diallo.Lyon deserved to be ahead but then fell apart at the start of the second half.Striker Yannis Salibur scored within a minute of the restart and midfielder Marcus Coco made it 2-1 after turning in veteran forward Jimmy Briands cross.Shortly after the second goal, Lyons fans displayed a banner reading Stop Les Excuses .dddddddddddd..

Win).Lacazette was upended in the area and should have been awarded a penalty midway through the second half.But Coco scored again and Guingamp finished the stronger side with teen midfielder Ludovic Blas going close to making it 4-1 in injury time.Its a big blow on the head for us, a massive disappointment, Genesio said.
