SAO JOSE DO RIO PRETO, BRAZIL: Thomaz Bellucci has had an incredible year in Davis Cup, winning all four of his matches played. He talks about how very special it is for him to play with the Brazilian flag and how Davis Cup has given him confidence.

Rogerio Dutra Silva won the opening match of Brazil's World Group play-off match against Russia this weekend and he has a perfect 4-0 record in Davis Cup play. He is excited to be part of the team and wants this to continue next year.

Russians Alex Bogomolov and Stanislav Vovk were disappointed with the result this weekend and that Russia will be relegated to Europe/Africa zone Group 1 next year. For Vovk it was his first Davis Cup experience and he felt nervous especially playing in such a big stadium but it was a great experience for him
