Indore: Somdev Devavarman today said the equation has certainly changed in the Asia/Oceania Group I tie with Chinese Taipei not having their top two players, but insisted that they won't take the visitors lightly since possibility of upsets is more in Davis Cup matches.

Taipei will not have the services of world number 54 Yen-Hsun Lu and Jimmy Wang (154) and will be led by Tsung-Hua Yang, who is ranked 216.

"Definitely it changes the equation. The top two guys are extremely tough but having said that, tennis is an individual game and everyone is capable of good wins. Everyone who has played at this level, has had upsets, has made upsets. On any given day anyone can beat anyone in Davis Cup. It has happened," Somdev, who is the highest-ranked player in the tie at 103, said after a two-hour practice session.
