Israel maintains Davis Cup status with Slovenia rout

Israel secured itself another year in Davis Cup Europe/Africa Group I on Saturday, opening an unassailable 3-0 lead over Slovenia with a dominant performance at the Drive-In Arena in Tel Aviv.

The blue-and-white was facing the prospect of playing a tie against relegation to Group II after suffering a humbling 5-0 defeat to Romania in March, the first time it had lost in the first round of Group I since 2006.

However, it bounced back in style against Slovenia, wrapping up the win with a day to spare after Dudi Sela and Ben Patael defeated Grega Zemlja and Aljaz Radinski 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 in the doubles encounter on Saturday.
