Davis Cup: Captain SP Misra happy with Malik's valiant fight

Asked about the surprisingly tame defeat of V M Ranjeet in the first singles, Misra said nothing worked for the rookie against Min Hyeok Cho. "Long rallies suited the Korean guy (Cho). Ranjeet needed to mix it up, go up and take the lead but could not execute. His serve did not work at all, that's why he could hold just once," Misra said.
