Great Britain's Kyle Edmund has admitted that he was "disappointed" to let a two-set lead slip in defeat to Belgium's David Goffin in the opening match in the final of the Davis Cup.
Despite being ranked 84 places below Goffin, Edmund appeared to be heading for victory before the world number 16 fought back on the clay in Gent.
"You're playing for your country, you're playing for your teammates. You feel like you've let them down. I'll look back on it and I'll say I did my best. But you're right in the moment, you're emotionally attached to it. You're just disappointed you couldn't do it for your team," The Express quotes the 20-year-old as saying.
"On paper, I was not meant to win. But we're playing on a clay court, that's the way I look at it. I believed I could win. You could see that the way I was going in the first two sets, I knew I could win. I knew I had the game to beat him and I was playing well enough.
"So that's probably why I was upset at the end because I knew I had the chance to beat him. I was two sets to love up. It's not a nice feeling losing two sets to love up, losing in five. It happens to people. But, yes, I was more just disappointed at the end and the way it finished. It fell away at the end very quickly. That's not the way you want it to happen. That's why I was upset."
