2003 Sep 20 - Davis Cup: Henman & Rusedski recover

Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski pulled a point back against the Moroccans by winning 7-6 6-2 6-4 in the doubles against Hicham Arazi and Mourir El Aarej. Going into the last day Morocco lead Great Britain 2-1.

Afer the match Tim said:

"There was nothing good I could take from yesterday's defeat, even though I could still have won the third set.

"I didn't feel good on court, but I also played erratic tennis and never gave myself the chance to create chances because I took too many risks and had poor shot selection.

"The neck seemed to get better as the game progressed; the tension in the singles yesterday didn't help and I was much more relaxed today."

And on the singles match against Younes El Aynaoui tomorrow, Tim commented:

"It's a huge match. Yesterday was my most disappointing performance in the Davis Cup and so it's personal.

"I have to be aggressive because if we can get into the tie. I think we can take it one step further.

"I had to raise my game today, but tomorrow will be my biggest challenge."
