Fish, after the US-Italy at 4:04: "I don't know where we are, what time or what day it is"

The US captain, Mardy Fish, says that finishing late in the morning "must have been something very special for the boys." The US press, sold out.


Sam Querrey and Jack Sock, from the United States, and Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini, from Italy, played the match with a later end in the history of the Davis Cup at dawn on Wednesday through Thursday. The duel, which the Americans won, started at 1:30 and ended at 4:04. There is only one match that ended later, the Hewitt-Baghdatis of the 2008 Australian Open. To top it off, the two teams did not do anything like that last night, because they were eliminated.

After the crash there was no press conference, but the protagonists attended the media in the mixed zone. The US captain, Mardy Fish, was very explicit in talking about how he felt: "I don't know where I am, what time it is or what day," he said in a statement that includes ESPN.

Then he took the matter from iron: "I guess what we did must have been very special for the boys, that's for sure." The American press that covers the tournament in Madrid suffered the consequences of a duel that went a long time. Christopher Clarey of the New York Times joked on his Twitter account: "Back to the hotel in Madrid. The phone's battery died, which seems appropriate for a game that ended at 4:04 am. It's not the kind of record that the Davis Cup wants to establish when a new era begins. Did you ask me what time the hotel breakfast will start?
