In India's corner will be Yuki Bhambri, willing and confidence-driven, looking for that biggest win of his career, and in Serbia's side is Filip Krajinovic, powerful, strong and groundstroke-driven, also hunting for arguably the biggest win of his tennis career.

Two 22-year-old's looking to bring joy, and become heroes for their country.

The odds, at the moment, are in favour of Krajinovic, who has already taken the first set 6-3, and just looks the stronger of the two players. With the second set at 4-4 rain came pouring down and did not relent for nearly two hours, by which time it was just too late to restart the match.

Bhambri was given the chance to become a hero by Somdev Devvarman, who scored a brilliant five-set win over Dusan Lajovic, coming back from two sets to one down to top the Serbian, who seemed to struggle with a heel injury for much of the match.

"I could see he was hurting," Somdev said. "I knew the more I kept him out, the worse it would get for him. I know how he plays, if you put back enough balls, he's going to give you a short one and that's what I was waiting for.

"He's quality player. In the last two sets, I told myself, I'm going to just play my game and see where it takes me."

It took him to a brilliant victory, and Somdev's win also made it 2-2 in the tie, as India fought back from a 2-0 deficit suffered in the first day on Friday with the winning momentum given by an outstanding effort from Leander Paes and Rohan Bopanna in the doubles on Saturday.

"They [Paes and Bopanna] gave me a chance to make up for my opening day loss and now I've given Yuki Bhambri a chance," added Somdev.

It remains to be seen if Bhambri seizes that chance and the moment.
