Never in doubt.

Time for Igor to finish the job and great weekend for Petzschner in his Davis Cup debut despite this loss.

Great match by Petzschner, it was a shame he struggled in the most important parts of the match due to lack of experience. :sad:

At least Petzsche won one set. That's what a fan would say. But not Petzschner, who was clearly disappointed with today's performance. He tried to fight as much as he could, though.
He said in the interview, that there were too many unnecessary thoughts in his head, like "What if I lose?", "Can I win the 3rd point?", etc. Yesterday's match was different, since he was simply happy to have his first DC match, while he couldn't handle the pressure today. He really wasn't too keen on playing today.

Looks like Haas pulling out was legit. Oh well, lets hope Kohli can be the hero.

Yes, it seems so. But Tommy just said in the interview, that he'll fly to Bangkok anyways, since otherwise he would have to pay the usual 20.000$ .

Petzschner did very well this weekend. He probably doesn't feel like he did right now, but he gave more than was expected of him.

Petzschner's interview was so cute.
"- What was your first reaction when Kühnen told you this morning you're going to play today?
- Scheiße!"
He didn't want to play. He had done more than his job yesterday, the tie was over for him, the pressure was off.
I think Haas was really sick. It's not like he's looking fresh as a daisy in the interview either.

Surprising Kuhnen's decision. I could've understood this on grass but not on clay.
