Earlier today, he gave his nation an early 1-0 lead when he beat Dean O'Brien in straight sets 7-5 6-1 6-3.

Alex Bogomolov Jr. , the only player in the team with Davis Cup experience to look back on, is currently involved in the second singles rubber against Jacob Coenraad De Klerk, also known as Japie De Klerk.
