Today we practiced in the morning for an hour, then we made the draw and had a press interview. Tomorrow the matches start at 1pm. I will be playing number two singles for my team against the English number one player JAMES WARD ranked 214 in the world.
Davis Cup is a brilliant experience, all my teammates and I are chomping at the bit to get on the court and play.
I think I will be playing a good player tomorrow who has more Davis Cup and ATP experience than myself, but it's a good opportunity for me to compete, have fun and play the match of the year.
We also have to consider the fact we are playing the English team in England as an advantage because the crowd is going to be massive tomorrow at Bolton Arena (around 2100 people) which can make them more under pressure than us.
