HYOGO, JAPAN: It wasn't the way that Eiji Takeuchi would have wanted his time as Japanese captain to have come to an end - losing in a decisive fifth rubber to Croatia - but he looks back at his career and thinks he's leaving Japan in a strong position.
The star of the tie, Ivo Karlovic, talks about his performance which ensured Croatia's passage to the quarterfinals and his captain Zeljko Krajan knows his team has to be at its best to defeat Argentina on South American soil.
Elsewhere Japanese No. 1 Kei Nishikori talks to Fred Varcoe about playing in front of his home crowd, how Davis Cup is helping him to become a better player and what advice he gave Go Soeda ahead of his teammates match Karlovic.
