Spain wins Davis Cup

Posted on: December 9, 2009

I have written about this before. About four tennis players dressed in red and yellow celebrating their confirmation as the strongest power in the world at this sport and lifting an extremely heavy trophy. Spain won the Davis Cup again. Second year in a row. Fourth time in this century. The Czech Republic was not rival for this team, which counts with four players among the top-27 in the world. Stepanek has his chances against David Ferrer, thanks to a powerful serve and incredible speed at the net, but Ferrer’s attitude and fight helped him come back when losing two sets to zero. He claimed to have cried of anger and rage in the locker room after losing the second set. Nadal had done his homework beforehands, giving no chance to an out-of-condition Berdych, and the two lefty players from Madrid, Feliciano Lopez and Fernando Verdasco, who have given so many joyful moments to Spain, finished it off with an easy victory against the two best Czech players.
