Darcis: Important first point for Belgium

Audio interview


  • Richard Fleming

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM: Steve Darcis talked to journalist Richard Fleming in Brussels about clinching the important first point for Belgium in his win over Michael Ryderstedt of Sweden.

Darcis found the rain and windy conditions tough to play in, and despite there being more pressure in the second set, he secured a three set win over his opponent.

Michael Ryderstedt reflected on his missed opportunity in the second set when he felt that he had a good chance to level. He takes positives from the match though and feels that he has it in him to come back and win again.

Swedish captain knows his team have a tough ask if they are to come back from 0-2 down but no nation has done it more times than the Swedes in the history of Davis Cup.

Andreas Vinciguerra, who was playing his first tour-level match since December, talks about being back on the tennis court and about becoming a father earlier this month.
