Audio interview

RAMAT HASHARON, ISRAEL: It is not often that Andy Ram and Jonathan Erlich are on the end of a doubles defeat, in fact it hadn't happened at home in Davis Cup play since 2005 when they lost to David Sherwood and Andy Murray, but today in Ramat Hasharon that was the case.

It is with shock, therefore, that they spoke to Ray Lewis following the match to try and decipher what exactly had gone wrong.

Vasek Pospisil was on cloud nine after his stunning doubles victory with doubles specialilst Daniel Nestor. The two players had combined to give the visitors a crucial second point and edge them ahead with two singles matches to come. Will we see Canada in World Group next year for the first time since 1992?
