What They Say

Novak Djokovic: "It's a fact that it's been a very long season for me and I'm exhausted in every way. But God knows if we're going to have as a country another opportunity like this to win a Davis Cup title at home."

Vladimir Safarik: "I am speaking to Jaroslav almost every day. Even though I have been with the team for many years, I was not the captain so there are things I have never experienced. I talk to him and he tries to give me some advice."
