SAO JOSE DO RIO PRETO, BRAZIL: Thomaz Bellucci was pleased to have maintained his concentration during his tight match against Teymuraz Gabashvili that saw him put the home side into a commanding 2-0 lead against Russia in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-off tie.

Gabashvili beleived that the Brazilian was tiring towards the end of the fourth set and that he had his own chances to claw his side back into the tie but a couple of bad points during the tiebreak prevented him from taking the match into a fifth set.
