AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA: Feliciano Lopez and David Ferrer, along with captain Albert Costa, look back on what has been a dream day for Spain in Austin. Lopez edged past Mardy Fish in five sets, then Ferrer defeated Roddick in straight sets to hand the visitors a 2-0 lead.

The Americans, Fish, Roddick and captain Jim Courier, are left to reflect on what might have been. The hosts will now turn to Bob and Mike Bryan to keep the tie alive on Saturday in the doubles rubber.
