Rackets lose out in Zone II

Listen to article

The Golden Rackets failed to make a return to the Euro Africa Zone II of the Davis Cup after losing 3-0 to Denmark on Sunday.

The Golden Rackets recovered from a 2-0 defeat to Nigeria on the first day but successive wins over hosts Botswana, the Ivory Coast and Namibia restored their chance of returning to Zone two.

But the Danes proved too strong for the Ghanaian team.

Ghana's number two seed Gunther Darkey says the team has missed a great opportunity to climb back into the elite levels of international tennis.

The Golden Rackets stay in Group three for next years' campaign.

Nigeria qualified alongside Denmark to the Euro Africa Zone II division after beating Namibia 3-0.
