ASTANA, KAZAKHSTAN: Mikhail Kukushkin looks ahead to his team's battle against Uzbekistan this week in Astana. Such is his dedication to Davis Cup this year that he has put aside a hip injury, and surgery, to play his part in keeping the team in the World Group.

Denis Istomin talks about facing Evgeny Korolev who has been playing on the challenger while he returns from injury. Istomin has faced Korolev twice before but not since 2009, each time the matches have been very close.
