Davis Cup: Zverev gives Germany 1-0 lead over Spain

Rafael Nadal

Nadal has since returned to full training and will make his debut when Spain take on Germany in the quarter-finals of the Davis Cup.

With Rafael Nadal nervously cheering courtside after winning his match earlier Sunday, David Ferrer sealed Spain's 3-2 comeback win over Germany in the Davis Cup quarterfinals with a thrilling five-set victory against Philipp Kohlschreiber. "He is not at 100% yet, but if he can win a match or two, it can help him", said Moya.

Kohlschreiber also went down tamely in the second before putting up more of a fight at the start of the third. "I'm very happy with the match".

Paris: Rafael Nadal faces a potentially season-defining Davis Cup weekend as the 16-time Grand Slam champion returns for his first appearance since hobbling out of the Australian Open in January with a crippling hip injury. France has now won six consecutive Davis Cup ties, two shy of their all-time record win streak from 2000-2002.

Ferrer and Kohlschreiber's match was locked at one set each at the Plaza de Toros in Valencia on Sunday. "18 months ago, he was playing for the first time, and now he is our leader on and off the court", captain Noah said of Pouille.

France's place in the next round was clinched by Lucas Pouille, whose 2-6 6-1 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 win against Fabio Fognini earned his country a 3-1 win against Italy.

The splits in opening singles action continued between Croatia and Kazakhstan as Marin Cilic won easily before Mikhail Kukushkin tied it up for the Kazakhs with a four-set upset of Borna Coric.

In Varazdin, Ivan Dodig and Nikola Mektic overcame Kazakhstan's Timur Khabibulin and Aleksandr Nedovyesov 6-7 (2) 6-4 6-4 6-2 to hand hosts Croatia a 2-1 lead.

Their semi-final opponents will be the United States following a doubles win by Jack Sock and Ryan Harrison against Belgian debutants Sander Gille and Joran Vliegen on Saturday for a 3-0 victory.

Their shock win handed the world No. 4 the chance to book Germany's spot in the semi-finals if he could defeat Nadal, however, he was second best throughout and it will all come down to the final rubber.
