The Friday, September 18 matches still offered some hope: Kližan beat Polish Michal Przysiezny and radiated optimism. However, his teammate Norbert Gombos lost on the same day against Jerzy Janowicz.
The next day, teams of neighbouring countries played doubles, with Poles Lukasz Kubor and Marcin Matkowski smoothly beating Igor Zelenay and Andrej Martin, the Sme daily wrote.
On Sunday, Kližan earned his second victory, against Janowicz; while Gombos – in the decisive match – lost against Przysiezny 0:3, thus marring the hopes of his national team to return to the best group of the Davis Cup in 2016. Poland, which has been playing in the Davis Cup since 1925, will experience its first matches in the elite group next year, Sme wrote.
