Wowzers! Talk about a successful weekend! Spain beat Ukraine 5-0. Reverse singles were also played. (I’m not sure why, sometimes they are and sometimes they aren’t?!)
I did try to search around on the internet as to why Rafa why chosen to play doubles instead of Tommy, who was originally going to play. Regardless, Rafa-the-steam-engine along with Marc, beat the visitors 6-2 6-7(6) 6-3 6-4. With the doubles victory, they were able to secure a spot for Spain for the 2014 World Group. It’ll be the 18th successive year for Spain.Marc rarely plays singles, but he did so on Sunday beating Molchanov 6-3, 6-3. I’m sure he got a lot of support from Rafa & company. 🙂 Good for him!Fernando got another match win for his Davis Cup record. It’s such a proud moment if one can win in their own hometown. Glad to see they had a successful weekend. Now they deserve a bit of a break! Especially Rafa! 😉 Hopefully he can just relax now and not worry about picking up a racket for some time.
