It was a very positive way to start the day. Great job today by our team and we are looking forward to playing our best tennis tomorrow in the championship rounds. Zach Carr played great today as well as J.P. (Ciliberto) and Paulo (Claure). Paulo's singles win is something he has been working for and I am really happy for him."
