Holders Croatia held a 2-0 lead over Austria and the U.S. recovered from a shock defeat for Andy Roddick to draw level with Romania after the opening singles matches in the Davis Cup World Group first round on Friday.

American James Blake beat Romania's Victor Hanescu 6-4, 7-6, 6-2 to level the tie after Andrei Pavel had rallied from two sets down to beat world number three Andy Roddick 6-7, 2-6, 7-6, 6-2, 6-4.

"I gave it all and risked it all," Pavel told reporters. "It's a happy day for us."

The 32-year-old Pavel saved a match point in the third set tiebreak with a brilliant top-spin lob.

Roddick then struggled badly after losing the tiebreak 10-8. The American was treated for an injury to his right wrist early in the fourth set and was physically sick on court before slumping to defeat.
