Audio interview

GIJON, SPAIN: USA Captain Jim Courier praises the Bryan brothers after their 63 36 75 75 victory in the doubles and explains that he can always rely on them to get the USA to Sunday when they fall behind after the Friday's singles rubbers.

Bob and Mike Bryan themselves both spoke about the match and how well the Spanish pair played in forcing them into their longest ever Davis Cup match.

Marcel Granollers explains that he had a recurrence of his calf injury in the second set but, despite his Captain Alex Corretja suggesting they stop at one set all, was determined to continue and force the American twins to win the match rather than hand it to them with a retirement.
