Ecuador’s second seed Roberto Queiroz stressed the team’s good performance in the Davis Cup finals despite defeats such as the one he suffered against Feliciano Lopez on Friday, leading to numerous criticisms that encouraged him to improve against Russian Andrey Rublev.

Roberto Queiroz fell to Rublev but won a set. He also showed a good level against Spain, in a duel against Feliciano Lopez, although he fell in two sets. The Ecuadorean left the meeting satisfied. Its leader is Raoul Fever. But the criticism was not that way.

“Friday’s match was more balanced than it looks on the scoreboard. I’m enjoying this Davis. However, after the match against Feliciano and congratulations from Raul (Fever), I later opened Twitter and saw criticism… that I lost to a 40-year-old player. And so. And it hurt me and I stayed with the bitter taste. It made me enter the court in a different way and with a different approach. This time more courageous and it was better for me. I am 29 years old, I try to take care of my body until it reaches a height of 38”, Queiroz said.

Before Rublev made a great standard. He led the fifth player in the world to the third set. “I went out feeling good. Nobody likes to lose but I played singles against a tennis player like Rublev. He is number 5 in the world and I played very well. I feel better and optimistic about 2022.

This simply means that beating Ecuador is difficult. We’ve shown why we’re here. Why are we here with players whose ranking is not at this level. We leave everything on the field. It’s a great honor to be here. We win or lose as a team. For 2022 there are many positive things. Ending this year in this way leaves me with many things after all the problems I had before,” he analyzed number two in tennis in Ecuador.

The Ecuadorean national team did a great job in Madrid. “We are trying to tell the difference between playing in the Davis Cup and playing the Tour. So many exploits for my daughter, Andres Gómez … so many stories in this tournament. Experience is important and this tournament is a priority. Here you play for something bigger than you, your country.” “. (Dr)
