Philippines to face Indonesia in Davis Cup Group II opener

Treat Huey and the Philippine Davis Cup team are hoping that home court favors them anew.

The Philippines is set to host its opening round assignment in the 2017 Davis Cup Asia/Oceania Zone Group II tournament against neighbors Indonesia from February 3 to 5.

The clay courts of the Philippine Columbian Association in Paco, Manila, will serve as home court for the team of Francis Alcantara (ATP doubles ranking no. 466), Ruben Gonzalez (ATP doubles ranking no. 245), Treat Huey (ATP doubles ranking no. 22), and Alberto Lim Jr.

Standing in their way though is a formidable Indonesian squad. Ever since 1921, the Philippines is 4-6 against Indonesia with the last loss coming in 2012 during the Final, 2–3.

Last year, the Philippines fell to Chinese-Taipei for the second straight year, 1-3, in the semifinals.

The winner of this tie will face either Thailand or Kuwait in April.
