Audio interview


  • Craig Gabriel

CORDOBA, SPAIN: After Michael Llodra and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga score a staggering 61 62 60 defeat of the experienced Davis Cup pairing of Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco, they share their post-match reaction with Craig Gabriel.

Captain Guy Forget reveals "we still need a miracle" as he looks ahead to taking on King of Clay, Rafael Nadal, at home. But not before he basks in a superb performance from Llodra and Verdasco, the best he has ever seen them play.

Fernando Verdasco and Feliciano Lopez give their take on what they think happened in today's match, which was the worst loss (in terms of games lost) in Spanish doubles Davis Cup history.
