Australia is up 2-1 after that John Peers and Jordan Thompson defeated Ruben Bemelmans and Arthur de Greef by 6-3 6-4 6-0. 'We need one out of two matches tomorrow', said Australian captain Lleyton Hewitt.
'We prepare as we normally would but I’d much rather be 2-1 up than 2-1 down.' 'We had a job to do today and we came out and did it from start to finish', said Peers. 'That was our goal and we did it for the team.
It was unbelievable. We got the job done.' 'Davis Cup doubles are usually five-set marathons so the result was surprising', recognized Thompson. 'They maybe did not have their best day but John and I played exceptionally well and we got the result.' Belgian Johan Van Herck is aware of his team's abilities: 'They are ready to face the challenge.
We have a lot of confidence to take from yesterday. David will only get better with the confidence from yesterday’s match. Steve… we know what he can do. We’ve come back from 2-1 down before, when everybody was doubting us.
It’s going to be a tough day at the office but it would have been even if we were ahead. We will be ready tomorrow. We will fight and at the end of the day we will see where we go.' .
