ANTWERP, BELGIUM: Xavier Malisse talks through his opening round 64 64 75 defeat to the lower-ranked Andreas Haider-Maurer of Austria, and tries to find answers to his lack of match rhythm.

After Steve Darcis pulls off an outstanding 76 67 64 63 win over No. 21 ranked Jurgen Melzer, Belgian captain Johan van Herck reflects on that match and his experience of his first outing as Davis Cup captain.

Van Herck also reveals to reporter Richard Fleming his tactics on how to lift the side and lift a shattered Malisse after today's defeat.
