Russia's Ekaterina Makarova pulled Russia level at 2-2 with Slovakia in their Fed Cup semi-final battle on Sunday, beating Daniela Hantuchova in a tough three-setter here.
Makarova won 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 in two hours 29 minutes to record her first ever win over Hantuchova in three attempts.
"Today I was in control in all three sets but failed to avoid mistakes and lost the second set," Makarova said. "But I was hoping to clinch my first win over Hantuchova and luckily, I managed to do it. And I still have enough power to play doubles."
