The Davis Cup tie complicate itself for Spain yesterday after leading 2 - 0 when Argentina brushed off the court the Spanish Doubles pair Verdasco - Lopez. A win by Del Potro today for Argentina against Rafael Nadal was the key for their comeback & Del Potro began strong taking the 1ºst set in a storm. However Nadal managed to find his game & won the following two sets to put Spain back on course.
But Del Potro is a very fine & talented player who managed to comeback & put Spain against the ropes almost KO. The Argentine had the 4ºth set in his hand to force a 5th when Nadal managed to get back on his feet & avoid such a possiblity. The fluctuation in the state of form between both & the increasing tiredness were important factors with the mental power finally being the decider. Nadal managed to stay strong mentally & win the decisive 4th set tie break & the Davis cup for Spain. Remarkable to watch & super human effort.
Admirable opponents the Argentines whom have to take back home the fact that its their 4th Davis Cup Final defeat. However, I am sure they will be back as the have an excellent squad. The Final ended 3 -1 in Spain´s favour but it could have gone all wrong for the Spaniards had Nadal not pulled the "rabbit out of the hat" in his match.
Congratulations to Spanish Tennis!
