HALMSTAD, SWEDEN: The players and captains reflect on the opening day's play at the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group quarterfinal tie between Serbia and Sweden, which saw the defending champions take a 2-0 lead after wins for Viktor Troicki and Janko Tipsarevic.

Troicki overcame a spirited performance from Michael Ryderstedt to triumph in four sets, while Tipsarevic was handed victory when his opponent, Ervin Eleskovic, was forced withdraw after sustaining a nasty knee injury.
