VIENNA, AUSTRIA: Gilles Simon talks to Chris Bowers about his delight in registering his first Davis Cup win in a live rubber, in Austria. He was in exceptional form as he overcame Stefan Koubek 60 62 63.
France's Jeremy Chardy says Friday's victory against Jurgen Melzer is one of his best. The young Frenchman was the surprise winner of the first rubber of the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas first round tie being held in the unusual location of a hangar at Vienna Airport.
The setting and home crowd were unable to inspire Melzer, who also spoke to Chris Bowers after his loss.
