HAYDN LEWIS gave it his all but it was not good enough as he lost in three sets to Ecuador’s Emilio Gomez in their Davis Cup Americas Zone Group I match yesterday at the National Tennis Centre.

Lewis lost 1-6, 6-7 (1), 4-6 and now the tie is locked 1-1 heading into today’s doubles match.

Gomez is the son of Andres Gomez, winner of the 1990 French Open, and he showed his pedigree with a convincing 1-6 win in the first set. Lewis’ trademark strong serve was noticeably absent in this set as the Ecuadorean was the one who ended up taking control early on.

So it was a little bit on my mind I was wondering if it would last the match, so it had me a little bit thrown off,” said Lewis.
