Davis Cup news: Djokovic beats GB’s Norrie to seal victory for Serbia after two-hour delay | Tennis | Sport

Jack Draper has spoken for the first time since losing the opening singles rubber to Miomir Kecmanovic. With Novak Djokovic representing Serbia in the second match against Cameron Norrie, the 21-year-old knew that his own contest was a must-win.

“He served, I’m not sure what his percentage was, but seemed like he served at a very high percentage,” Draper said of Kecmanovic. “I wouldn’t say I returned amazingly well today, but when I did get the return back on court, seemed like he had the answer most of the time as well. Yeah, he was definitely better behind the serve today than I was, for sure.”

Addressing the pressure of getting a point on the board for Britain before Djokovic stepped up for Serbia, he added: “I think also, you know, it’s difficult knowing that Cam has to go and play Djokovic after, and that’s kind of seemingly a must-win match for me. Who knows.

“I’ll back Cam and let’s see how he does, but it’s definitely a tough challenge to go out there knowing that there is a lot more almost pressure on me to win the match.”
