TOKYO, JAPAN: There was a moment in the doubles rubber of this Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-off tie when it looked as though Andy Ram would be forced to retire with a hip injury.

But when playing for your country you carry on. That is the view of Ram's long-time doubles partner Jonathan Erlich, who also explains that the mood in the Israeli camp will be one of positivity after they won the crucial doubles rubber against Japan on day two in Tokyo.
