BARBADOS’ FIRST FORAY into Group I play may be a real breeze after all.

Kevin Yarde thinks his team’s home court advantage is about to get a further boost, with the Davis Cup captain expecting even windier conditions at the National Tennis Centre following the removal of the stadium court’s surrounding fencing.

Yarde made the point in a telephone interview with the SATURDAY SUN after the two ten-foot fences at the eastern and western ends were taken down to accommodate spectator viewing for this weekend’s historic Group I tie against the Dominican Republic.

“I can’t say definitively there will be more wind but I think it’s going to be a bit windier as where the windbreaker is placed now shouldn’t have the desired effect,” the non-playing captain explained.
