Spain Have One Hand On The Davis Cup


Spain are oh so close to winning the Davis Cup two years in a row. Early this morning Rafael Nadal took care of business against Thomas Berdych in three sets 7-5,6-0,6-2. He is just too good on clay, especially when playing for his country! Last year he was unable to partake in the final so he it looks like he is making up for lost time. On the other hand Radek Stepanek gave the Spanish fans a fright in the second rubber against David Ferrer. Ferrer was down two sets to love and pulled himself back to tie the match, two sets each. A monster third set saw the crowd help Ferrer win the crucial rubber 8-6 in the fifth set. David winning the match 1-6,2-6,6-4,6-4,8-6. Davis Cup produces so many thrilling matches. Players tend to step it up a notch for their respective countries. Spain certainly have this one in the bag. If the doubles don't get the job done I'm sure Nadal will!
