Press Conference


4-6, 6-4, 7-5

Canada - 2

Spain - 1

THE MODERATOR: We will start with English questions.

Q. Sergi, what an incredible day. Have you ever seen such a change in five minutes from the whole tie being turned on its head?

CAPTAIN BRUGUERA: I see a lot of things in tennis. Especially in Davis Cup anything can happen. I see so many things from anything, you know.

I think all the matches was unbelievable level of tennis. I think both teams play unbelievable. Was this match for every match, and today went from Canada's side. We cannot say anything but congratulate Canada.

And also me, so proud of my team and congratulate my team for its work and its effort.

Q. Pedro, how do you pick yourself up now knowing you've got a day of rest and playing Korea on Sunday? How do you look ahead to the Korea tie?

PEDRO MARTINEZ: The thing on Sunday, we have a tough match. We have to assimilate. They have good players in Korea. It's going to be tough, for sure. We will see what happens.

Q. Sergi, similar question for you. You mentioned the level of the play today. Does that mean you go into Sunday knowing if Team Spain performs like they did today they remain favorites to qualify?

CAPTAIN BRUGUERA: Well, for me, I only look for what about to play the eliminatory, to play the matches as best as possible, to prepare my team the best possible way, and don't think about if I'm qualify, if I'm not, and doing, you know, numbers.

I just go first match we go with 100%. Second match go 100%. Then if we need doubles, we go and we compete like we compete today. That's the only thing I can ask. This, everything they give me. For me, my team is perfect.

Q. Marcel, I hate to bother you about this, but what was the most difficult thing playing against the Canadians today?

MARCEL GRANOLLERS: Well, they are great players. They play big. They serve big.

I think we played a good match. Some chances in the second set, having breakpoints on first game and also at 4-All. Also, third set was leading.

Yeah, it's crazy doubles how quick can change, you know. 10 minutes we were 5-4 up, and after 10 minutes we lost the match.

Yeah, I think we are very proud of our team how we compete, how we fight. That's tennis, and we will try again on Sunday.
