OVIEDO, SPAIN: The first day in your new job is always a tricky one, but spare a thought for Alex Corretja, who has just stepped into the role as Spain's new Davis Cup by BNP Paribas captain.

He has big shoes to fill and he knows it. Spain have won the title for three of the last four years and Corretja speaks about his hopes in this interview with Alex Willis.

Elsewhere, Juan Carlos Ferrero reflects on his return to the Spanish fold and Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin looks ahead to what will be a tough task for his team - to defeat the defending champions on home soil.
