With veteran Leander Paes and Rohan Bopanna pairing up for the must-win doubles encounter, Somdev said everything now depends upon Saturday's match.
     
"The doubles may be 50-50, but we have really two good players (Paes and Bopanna). We feel like we have a chance, you know," he told reporters after India lost the opening two singles matches to trail 0-2 in tie.
     
Somdev, who carried the onus of bringing India back into the tie after Yuki Bhambri's loss in the first singles match, failed to live up to the expectations as he lost the second singles 1-6 6-4 3-6 2-6 after battling for two hours and 23 minutes against Filip Krajinovic, ranked 37 places above him at 107.
     
Somdev, however, said it would be extremely tough for India to make a comeback into the tie especially after going down 0-2 on the first day.
     
"It is going to be extremely tough, especially after being down 0-2 against a very strong nation, and there is no question about that," he said.
     
Nevertheless, Somdev hoped his teammates would come out firing in all cylinders tomorrow to give him and Yuki another chance in the reverse singles to turn the tables around.
     
"Hopefully, the boys will come out fired up tomorrow and play some good tennis, and get us onboard. Thereafter, I will have another chance and may be I will be able to learn from the mistakes I made today," he said.
     
Talking about his today's performance against Krajinovic, Somdev said bad serving did him.
 
"Bad serving did for me, and made life tough for me," he said.
