OVIEDO, SPAIN: Juan Carlos Ferrero was pleased with a grinding victory over Mikhail Kukushkin on the first day of his first round Davis Cup by BNP Paribas tie. The Spainard was making his first appearance in the competiton since the 2009 semifinal against Israel. Kukishkin also admits that clay wasn't his preferred surface on which to be facing the reigning champions but still believes that Kazakhstan have what it takes to turn the tie around.

Alex Corretja talks about his first day on the bench as Davis Cup captain and how proud he is of Ferrero and Nicolas Almagro after such strong performances today.
