Yannick Noah is very sorry for Lucas Pouille's loss to Dusan Lajovic by 6-1 3-6 7-6(7) 7-5 in the first day of the Davis Cup semifinal tie between France and Serbia. 'I have a big responsability in Pouille's loss', Noah admitted at the end of the match.
'I didn't find the key to get through the match, at some point we didn't speak each other. It wasn't a nice situation. I influence a lot this group, and I could have made Lucas even more stressed.' Instead Jo-Wilfried Tsonga defeated Laslo Djere 7-6(2) 6-3 6-3 to tie the encounter and put it on 1-1.
'I was very nervous and in order to play well I need to be calm, but I am an experienced player and Yannick helped me', Tsonga said in press conference. .
