REHABILITATION OF THE ROOFING SYSTEM
PIARCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT --
PACKAGE 1: METAL ROOF COVERINGS
GLASGOW---The Bryan brothers kept the United
States alive in the Davis Cup yesterday, and buried
some bad memories in the process.
Bob and Mike Bryan held off a comeback by scratch
pairing Jamie Murray and Dominic Inglot to win the
doubles against Britain in five sets, reducing the Amer-
icans deficit to 2-1 in the first-round tie.
The 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-7 (8), 9-7 victory ensured
the chest-bumping Californian twins, who are the
most successful doubles partnership in the Open era
with 104 ATP titles, still have never lost after going
two sets up.
And it made amends for tough five-set losses to
Brazil and Serbia in 2013, the only other occasions
they were taken the distance in Davis Cup.
It may have only delayed the inevitable for the US
Bryans win to keep
US alive vs Britain
Britain remains the big favorite to
advance to a quarterfinal against France
because Andy Murray, the former Wim-
bledon and US Open champion, is play-
ing John Isner in the first of today s
reverse singles. Isner lost a grueling five-
setter against James Ward that lasted
almost five hours on Friday, hurting him
mentally and physically.
"I don t think Isner will be back-flip-
ping out of bed to play Andy tomorrow,"
said Jamie Murray, the older brother of
The tie is following a similar course
to last year s, which Britain won 3-1 in
San Diego after winning both of the Fri-
day singles and losing the doubles.
In Kraljevo, Serbia reached the Davis
Cup quarterfinals when Novak Djokovic
and Nenad Zimonjic beat Croatian duo
Marin Draganja and Franko Skugor 6-
3, 6-4, 6-1 in yesterday s doubles to
take an insurmountable 3-0 lead.
The top-ranked Djokovic was a late
replacement for Viktor Troicki, who had
a tough five-set victory over Croatian
teen Borna Coric in the opening singles
on Friday. Djokovic beat Mate Delic on
the first day.
Djokovic hurt his finger in the doubles
in a fall in the second set but was able
to play on.
"Our ambition is to reach the finals,"
Zimonjic said, thanking Djokovic for
playing in the doubles.
The result turns today s reverse singles
into two meaningless matches.
Serbia will play either Argentina or
Brazil in the quarterfinals.
In Buenos Aires, Brazil took a 2-1 lead
over Argentina in their Davis Cup first-
round tie with the doubles pair of
Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares defeat-
ing Diego Schwartzman and Carlos
Berlocq 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.
Brazil can advance to the quarterfinals
for the first time since 2001 by winning
one of Sunday s reverse singles. It hasn t
beaten Argentina in 40 years.
Argentina captain Daniel Orsanic
played the more experienced and high-
er-ranked Berlocq in doubles instead of
Federico Delbonis, even though Berlocq
played a five-set singles on Friday and
had never won a Davis Cup doubles.
Leonardo Mayer is scheduled to face
Joao Souza in Sunday s first reverse sin-
gles, then Berlocq is up against Thomas
Bellucci in the second match.
However, Orsanic could replace
Berlocq with Delbonis, who has yet to
In Frankfurt, France progressed to the
Davis Cup quarterfinals with a com-
fortable 3-0 win over Germany following
Julien Benneteau and Nicolas Mahut s
The pair defeated Benjamin Becker
and Andre Begemann 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 to
give 2014 runner-up France an unas-
sailable lead in the first round tie.
The French took just 1 hour, 49 min-
utes to see out the match and the result
means only pride is at stake in Sunday s
On Friday, Gael Monfils defeated Ger-
man No. 1 Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-4,
7-5, 7-6 (4) and Gilles Simon outlasted
Jan-Lennard Struff 7-6 (4), 2-6, 6-7
(1), 6-2, 10-8 to put the hosts on the
The win ensures Germany s miserable
record against its neighbour continues
with the last German victory over France
going back to 1938.
In Ostrava, Jiri Vesely teamed with
rookie Adam Pavlasek to win the doubles
and reduce Australia s lead over hosts
Czech Republic to 2-1 in the first round.
Vesely and Pavlasek twice came from
a set down to overcome Lleyton Hewitt
and Samuel Groth 1-6, 7-6 (2), 3-6, 7-
6 (4), 6-2 on the indoor hard court at
Pavlasek served out the match when
Groth hit the net on their second match
The Aussies were 6-1, 3-0 up when
Hewitt and Groth lost serve, allowing
a Czech comeback.
In the final set, Groth lost his serve
in the fifth game when he sent a fore-
hand volley long. In the seventh game,
he netted another volley to give the
Czechs another break, and lost his tem-
per, destroying his racket in anger.
Australia still is one win away from
a quarterfinal against Italy or Kazakhstan.
It hasn t passed the first round in nine
Bernard Tomic can clinch the tie with
a victory over Lukas Rosol in the first
reverse singles on Sunday.
If Rosol wins, the tie will be decided
in the final match between Vesely and
Australia took a commanding 2-0
lead on Friday when Kokkinakis upset
Rosol 4-6, 2-6, 7-5, 7-5, 6-3, and Tomic
dispatched Vesely 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (5).
In Liege, hosts Belgium took a 2-1
lead against Davis Cup champion
Switzerland in their first-round tie after
Ruben Bemelmans and Neils Desein ral-
lied to beat Adrien Bossel and Michael
Lammer 1-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2.
Switzerland needs to win both reverse
singles today to reach the quarterfinals.
Roger Federer, the 17-time Grand Slam
champion, and 2014 Australian Open
champion Stanislas Wawrinka are skip-
ping this best-of-five series after leading
their country to its first title in 2014.
The Swiss pairing hardly looked for-
midable, with Bossel ranked outside the
top 1,000 in doubles and Lammer only
Belgium was also missing its top player
after David Goffin withdrew because of
a back injury in Friday s opening singles
---although the 21st-ranked Goffin could
be fit in time to play on Sunday. (AP)
