  • Philipp Kohlschreiber reveals tactics to face Rafael Nadal

Zverev had already comfortably beaten David Ferrer 6-4 6-2 6-2 but Germany earned a surprise victory in the doubles as Jan-Lennard Struff and Tim Puetz stunned Feliciano Lopez and Marc Lopez 6-3 6-4 3-6 6-7 (4-7) 7-5. The last nation to beat Spain on home soil was Brazil, led by Gustavo Kuerten, in 1999.

"It's great to be back even if after an injury it's always hard".

Rafael Nadal described his return to action as "a day to remember" after the 16-time grand slam victor pulled Spain level in their Davis Cup quarter-final against Germany.

In front of a partisan crowd which needed little excuse to get excited, Nadal regularly produced his trademark fist pump en route to a Davis Cup-record 23rd straight win in singles and doubles, a run that stretches back to 2005.

However, it's recent history which now concerns Nadal who opened his weekend against Philipp Kohlschreiber in yesterday's second singles.

ITALY 1, FRANCE 3 Venue: Valletta Cambiaso ASD, Genoa, ITA (clay - outdoor) Lucas Pouille came from a set down to send France into the semi-finals, defeating Fabio Fognini 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 (3), 6-3. "I'm very happy with my level, the first set was fantastic in such an important match".

Croatia will take on the United States in the other semi-final, with both ties to be played on 14-16 September. Nadal has been part of four Davis Cup winning teams thus far and is keen to help his team progress to the last four.

The German pair edged the Spanish team in a thrilling five-setter 6-3 6-4 3-6 6-7 (4) 7-5.

In Nashville, John Isner and Sam Querrey lifted the Americans a 2-0 lead over last year's runners-up Belgium as the USA tries to reach the semis for the first time in six years.

In Varazdin, Ivan Dodig and Nikola Mektic overcame Kazakhstan's Timur Khabibulin and Aleksandr Nedovyesov 6-7 (2) 6-4 6-4 6-2 to hand hosts Croatia a 2-1 lead.
