Acting President Vladimir Putin sent a message of greetings to participants, organisers and guests at the Russian-Belgian Davis Cup tennis match

February 3, 2000

The message said:

“Renowned professionals will vie against each other on Moscow tennis courts. Russian tennis players have repeatedly scored impressive results at the most prestigious international competitions. We, of course, are rooting for them; but true fans will always appreciate the style of their team’s rivals and their ability to show character. I hope the professionalism of players and the support of fans will help the Russians to take a new step to the top and to win the Davis Cup”.

Mr Putin wished success to all players and lasting memories to spectators.
