AUSTIN, TX, USA: Fernando Verdasco and Marcel Granollers give an analysis of their 67 64 64 64 defeat to Bob and Mike Bryan in the crucial doubles rubber in Austin, and the Bryans describe the buzz of playing in front of 17,000 fans to reporter Craig Gabriel.

With Spain still edging the lead 2-1, captains Albert Costa and Jim Courier look ahead to a nerve-racking final day which sees No. 1s Mardy Fish and David Ferrer face off in the fourth rubber, followed by Andy Roddick and Feliciano Lopez in the fifth.
