15:47. And yet the Japanese did not wait for a miracle in Tokyo today. Taro Daniel played his first 5-set match in his career and could not cope with Lukas Rosol , although he and the local public had hopes for this - 4: 6, 4: 6 , 6: 3, 6: 4, 2: 6. Thus, after Friday's meetings, the account in the quarterfinals Japan - Czech Republic - 0-2. The guests have to win one more point in one of the three remaining bouts to reach the semifinals.

15:00. In Naples, the preparation of the court continues. They brought a cart with earth and fill up a puddle that did not want to leaveb. So it looks like the match Italy - Great Britain will start at about the same time as the other two quarterfinals - Switzerland - Kazakhstan and France - Germany , although it should have started two hours earlier.
14:45. In the second round of group II zone Europe / Africa South Africa - Lithuania an account is open. The leader of the guests Ricardas Berankis beat Jean Andersen - 6: 3, 7: 6 (7: 2), 6: 3.

14:30. Andy Murray was now on court in Naples with a test. I looked at the ground and went back. His match against Andreas Seppi is still the second start, but the Briton also needs to know how long he can expect to start his fight.
14:25. Japanese samurai Taro Daniel , which almost no one knew about before this match, meanwhile won one set against Lukas Rosola - 6: 3. The fourth game begins. The local public in Tokyo should be inspired.

14:20. As it turned out, the workers of the tennis club in Naples were not very successful in covering the ground with a tarp during a downpour. And after the coverlet was removed, huge puddles were found under it. Now they are trying to eliminate them in a hurry. This is how it looked:
The court in Naples is covered with a tarp
14 : 10. In the meantime, the rain in Naples has ended, workers have begun to tidy up the court.
14:05. This is how the 35-year-old was so determined today Radek Stepanek . His teammate Czech Republic Lukas Rosol is also not far behind. The current winners of the Davis Cup are rushing on rails to the semifinals of the next draw, and it is not yet clear how the Japanese are going to take three points from them.
13:52. And in Naples, meanwhile, a downpour started. The clay court is covered. There is not a single person on the platform. The start of the match Italy - Great Britain is thus postponed.
13:50. The Friday program ended in Korean Busan. In the match of Group I zone Asia / Oceania South Korea - India by a draw - 1-1 .

13:15. time Lukas Rosol made another break and won the first game against Taro Daniel - 6: 4, the second set began.
13:05 . The scheme is multi-stage, rather confusing, but generally understandable. From the groups of teams Croatia - Russia - Poland and Portugal - Israel - Slovenia, the worst teams are found out, which in the final round of the play-out reveal the loser. The second black mark from Europe / Africa is played in the triples Romania - Sweden - Ukraine and Austria - Slovakia - Latvia. The teams that have already won in the first round cannot be the worst. These are Poland, Slovenia, Ukraine and Slovakia. But the seeded teams starting from the second round (Croatia, Israel, Sweden and Austria), in case of loss, will also join the struggle for survival. Specifically, this scheme applies to Russia as follows: if the Croats lose to the Poles, the Russians will start the play-out from the first round with a match against Croatia. And if Croatia defeats Poland, then both of these teams will have a victory. This means that Russia will immediately play in the final round of the play-out with the worst team from the neighboring three. It will be either Portugal or Israel. Naturally, the defeat of Croatia by Poland is more advantageous for Russia. Then Russia will have a match in reserve - a defeat by the Croats will still leave chances of keeping the ticket, plus this match will take turns in Russia.
12:55. It's time to remember the national team Russia. The squad of Shamil Tarpishcheva lost at home to the Polish team - 2-3 in February and is now waiting for the grid of the tournament of losers of group I zone Europe / Africa for the right to keep the registration in the second most importantand the Davis Cup division for 2015.
12:52. Meanwhile, the match Taro Daniel - Lukas Rosol has started 18 minutes ago. The score is still equal - 2: 2. The Czech lead immediately 2-0, but the Japanese debutant regained the lost break.
12:50. In September, the eight winners of these pairs will play with the losers of the first round of the 2014 World Group for the right to play in the elite next season. Recall who lost in February in the 1/8 finals - the Netherlands (Czech Republic, away), Canada (Japan, g), Spain (Germany, g), Australia (France, g), USA (UK, home), Argentina ( Italy, d), Belgium (Kazakhstan, d), Serbia (Switzerland, d). As you can see, the company is more than serious.
12:45. Let's list the rest of the couples that are fighting in different zones to get into the playoffs of the World Group. Ecuador - Brazil and Colombia - Dominican Republic play in America, and in the Europe / Asia zone - Poland - Croatia, Slovenia - Israel, Sweden - Ukraine and Slovakia - Austria.
12:35. The famous German tennis player Barbara Rittner wishes the German national team success in the match against France. The Germans brought an openly duplicate cast to Nancy. However, the Davis Cup can do anything.

12:10. The debutant of the hosts Taro Daniel and nominally the first racket will enter the second match in Tokyo in 20 minutes the Czech national team in this match Lukas Rosol . Let us remind you that the representative of the top 10 of the world rating Tomas Berdych misses this round.
12:04. The 35-year-old did not postpone the matter. Czech veteran. He won the fourth set with a score of 7: 5 and brought the Czech team the first point in the quarterfinals.
