B. T. have tried to get a comment from Kenneth Carlsen, but he has not returned on the inquiry.
however, It should be quite certain that Kenneth Carlsen is far from satisfied with the outline, which he in a press release from the Danish Tennis Federation does not put the hide on.
"The last few years I have been in the process to renew the team with younger forces. Players, I both at present and in the past have been a coach for, and as I believe, has the potential to bring the Davis Cup team up in the top of the world elite. I had been looking forward very much to this journey," says Kenneth carlsen's comment to the termination, that was not his own decision.

"I see no problems."
"We have taken a decision that the time for a move is the right thing."
B. T. have been in contact with a Davis Cup player, who does not want to comment on the matter publicly, but that does not put the hide to the DTF's grabbing the termination of Kenneth Carlsen gives the public the opportunity for speculation.
