Davis Cup Aftermath. Telenova where will Argentina play the final

Davis Cup

Huge surprise in the Davis Cup semi finals, well more so that Argentina needed the 5th match to defeat Russia, but doesn’t matter how the win happens, as long as they won. After Nalbandian carried the Argie team for many matches, it was great to see del Potro step up to the plate and play two outstanding matches crushing Davydenko and Andreev.

Spain won easily, but this had as much doubt as the next Pope being Catholic. Nadal toying with Roddick was top quality entertainment.

The real fun is now where the AAT will hold the final. The players and captain want to play indoors on a carpet or a fast hardcourt in Cordoba, which would be the preferred option. The crowd will be crazy there, starting early with the Fernet and Cola, but the venue is under the 14 000 the ITF want for a final, but there are ways around this. Other contenders are Luna Park in Buenos Aires and Mar del Plata.

It will be interesting to see what decision that clown Morea will come up with, the fact Mancini and the players were adamant the conditions they want to play in, has forced him to think about this more than he would have previously.

No surprise at all at the semifinals, I hoped Andreev would perform better but it is a good thing Argentina won the tie. Once Argentina decided to go for indoors carpet Cordoba seems to be the obvious choice but we will see what they will decide.

It seems that Cordoba has been awarded as the host city for the final and it should be accepted by the ITF.

Andreev was surprisingly poor in this tie and del Potro played at a great level. That commodity known as confidence is a wonderful thing to have, look at the US financial industry and you see the lack of confidence.

Great for Argentina to host the final and Ferrer is struggling at the moment.

moderately fast clay said...

this is going to be a f***ing sick final... i predict del potro will break nadal's back over five... vomit on the side of the court in ecstacy... then cry a little bit...

at least i am hoping this is what will happen...

go argies...!

funny thing is that the only spanner in the works that could have f***ed this tie up are the two heads of both respective federations... when both eras come to an end, they wont have far to look to find blame...

most anticipated final since...? when...?
