Mr. Davis Cup didn't come through today in the rubber the Argies absolutely needed after Mikey Llodes beat Pico in the first rubber of the day. Gael, tennis' version of a "box of chocolates", came out firing, taking an aggressive game to Nalby and using the home court to his advantage. There would be no brainfarty trick-shotting today and as a result, Argentina finds itself in a 0-2 hole going into tomorrow's doubles. You have to think it'll take a miracle to pull this one out.
Over in Belgrade, Janko was the man of the hour, stepping up to take out Tomas in four sets to even the tie at 1-1. Too bad Viktor couldn't step up to beat Steps. I really thought that was the rubber the Serbs were going to win.
Nole says he might be fit for doubles tomorrow but will definitely up to play Tomas on Sunday if that rubber is necessary. I would love to see some Nenad/Nole dubs.
