SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Swiss maestro Roger Federer had to come back from a set down to record his maiden Davis Cup by BNP Paribas singles victory over Australia's Lleyton Hewitt at the Sydney Golf Club.
The former world No. 1 has labelled the win as one of the best of his career and thinks it will give him confidence going into the rest of the weekend.
Elsewhere, both captains and players reflect on an entertaining first day in Sydney.
