Jurgen will play Steve Daris in the first match.
There are a few pictures on the Davis Cup site, but I do not know how to post them here. I hope someone will do it.

What can I say? Jurgen lost to Steve Darcis 6-7, 7-6, 4-6, 3-6.
Adreas Haiden-Maruer won his match against Malisee so it is now Austria 1 Belgium 1
I had hoped it would be Austria 2 Beliguim 0.
I do know that when Darcis is playing his best he can beat almost any player. With his home country supporting him, I am certain it was a difficult match for Jurgen. I still feel Jurgen should have won it.

It is now Austria 2 Belgium 1. Jurgen did not have to play doubles. He said yesterday he ran out of energy in the fourth set. He had jet lag after coming to Vienna for a few hours and then on to Belgium from the United States. He should be adjusted when he plays Malisee the first match tomorrow.
Marach/Peya df Darcis/O. Rochus 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.

Jurgen came through for Austria today and won his singles against O. Rochus 6-4, 6-4, 6-3.
CONGRATS TO AUSTRIA. THEY WILL REMAIN IN THE WORLD GROUP. Alex Peya is playing the final match for Austria.
