In a match that suffered a 'lights out' moment when some of the stadium lights stopped working, Verdasco and Lopez proved to be the more experienced pair under the pressure of Davis Cup, going in for the kill whenever the opportunity presented itself.
“I was out there with one of my best friends. We have known each other since we were six or seven years old, so to be here on the Saturday – against the best team, and with nothing to lose – it was fantastic.
For about ten minutes in the third set we were playing some amazing shots. We were having a lot of fun, but it’s still tough to lose in straight sets.” - Olivier Rochus
“It was close. We struggled a little bit in the first set, before playing a very good tiebreak. We played a bit better in the second set, and then obviously the third set, but they played an unbelievable game at 4-0.” - Fernando Verdasco
