CHANDIGARH -- Anand Amritraj probably threw in best the best analogy of the day: It was like watching Rocky 2. Whoever was able to stand on his feet, won the match.Referring to the rather bizarre turn of events, which had spasms taking a toll on three out of the four players on Friday, Indias non-playing Davis Cup captain termed it mind-boggling, one that was unprecedented at least in recent memory. Playing on a rather soft court, still smarting from the heavy spells of rain over the last couple of days, with short rallies and near-zero bounce, the Korean players crumbled under the searing heat. While Saketh Mynenis dogged show through the spasms eventually paid off, the opening day of the Davis Cup tie played out more than its fair share of theatrics.Im probably the third most tired person in the Indian camp today. My hair is a lot greyer than it was this morning, joked Amritraj.Late in the fourth set, a limping Saketh, put the Indian camp through a bit of worry. I wanted to finish it in three sets but I played a bad game in the third and by the fourth I begun cramping. The conditions were tough and I tend to sweat a lot. I thought I would run out of jerseys, said Saketh, who leaned against the side boards of the court during changeover to keep the spasms in check. He forfeited the set 6-3 for seeking medical attention.But thankfully for him, he wasnt the only one in pain. Yong-Kyu Lim, his opponent, too was struggling to hold himself together at the other end. I could see that Lim was tiring by the end of the third set which is why I asked Saketh to hang in as much as he could. Even when he forfeited the fourth set, I was very worried. Both his legs as well as my left hand too started cramping and seeing him in so much pain I thought of calling it off. Wholesale Authentic Nike Shoes UK Online. I asked him to take it one game at a time and hold serve, all the while assuring him that the other guy was in bad shape, Anand added.With Lim slapping a weary forehand into the net to lose serve in the opening game of the fifth set, Saketh now began to find his self-belief seeping back in. A toilet break followed and Lim clearly looked no better. The unusually high toll that the conditions took on the players points to the larger question of fitness of the players in playing out a five-set match.It was very humid and we hadnt practiced on the match court which was pretty soft. Also having very little experience of playing on grass courts and the pressure of playing a five-setter in a Davis Cup tie didnt help either, said a weary Seong-Chan Hong, who conceded the first singles against Ramkumar Ramanathan following spasms and had to be helped off the court.Given that it was both Ramkumar and Sakeths first experience of playing a live five-setter rubber, it was obviously not easy. Coach Zeeshan Ali while terming it a crazy day, said he couldnt recall a similar instance when both players forfeited their matches. The conditions were horrible, almost brutal for all players in terms of the weather. Though I feel bad for the Koreans, Im happy that we ended up on the winning side.With Lim sinking to the ground at 15-15 with Saketh serving for the match in the eighth game, victory clearly belonged to the last man standing.
