Despite Melzer was playing like a "mug" at times, Korolev was surprisingly consistent.

The Kazakhs keep on being greatly prepared at home despite Kukushkin's injury. Players like Korolev and Golubev who have done nothing for months play two great matches to win their ruber on a surface which is rather better for their opponents.

But Austria can still come back, as they are the favorites of the double and of Melzer-Golubev.

It could depend on a final Korolev-Haider Maurer match. I hope Korolev confirms on sunday, he needs to get a few good wins to get confidence back.

On a sidenote, I've seen no thread but Wu Di from China was very near to defeating IStomin on clay this morning : 4-6 4-6 7-6(4) 7-5 6-2

Korolev took another good guy to 5 sets last year, can't remember who, but anyway I'm not surprised that he plays better in Davis cup than elsewhere.

Mugzer should really consider retirement if he intends to play like this from now on...that was some gutless performance, dwelving into "tank" territory

Indeed :-) Golubev was particularly amusing a couple of years ago. Had made the KL final, then lost a crapload of matches. Suddenly out of nowhere murders Berdych in Davis Cup.

Light at the end of the tunnel? Break the pattern? Some motivation for the rest of the season?

Nope. He did get a win next match, a virtual walkover against a sick/tanking Mayer, but then went on a Spadea-class streak, losing his next 17 matches in a row.

Some tie this.The Kazakhs surely play with full heart for "their" country.
Happens often in DC,some strong R1 ties and on the other hand teams like Kazakhstan get to QF.Howerer,since they're getting there over Melzer,no complaints.

His own fault TBH, he is ranked 250 something yet he tries to play the top 2 level challengers.
