Defending champions Spain have reached the Davis Cup final where they will face Czech Republic after they overcome USA and Argentina respectively over the weekend.
The Spanish, who have made six Davis Cup finals in the past decade, progressed with an impressive 3-1 victory over the Americans on clay in Gijon.
Meanwhile, the Czechs overcame a difficult away tie to Argentina in Buenos Aires, winning 3-2 with Tomas Berdych the star, as he triumphed in both individual matches and helped his side to a doubles triumph alongside Radek Stepanek.
Berdych, who recently knocked Roger Federer out of the US Open, said: “People think it’s impossible to win in Argentina, but we had belief and proved that it is possible.”
Spain were equally impressive without their star man Rafael Nadal, as David Ferrer and Nicolas Almagro got the job done over the Americans who had previously knocked out Federer’s Switzerland and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s France.
“This is a dream for me, another Davis Cup final,” Ferrer said. “It was unbelievable, the atmosphere supported me the whole match.”
The final will take place in Ostrava, Czech Republic, on November 16-18 with Spain admitting they hoped Nadal would be fit to take his place.
