Savannah: It's On!



There was no dead rubber in cloudy, chilly Buenos Aires. Team Argentina needed five rubbers to defeat Team Russia and clinch a berth in the Final which will be held in December. Argentina will play host to Spain, winners over defending Davis Cup champions the United States. Details will follow but as usual tennisheads are speculating over what could be the deciding factor - the surface the tie will be played on. Team Argentina's Captain Mancini has apparently indicated the preferred surface will be indoor carpet, the surface favored by David Nalbandian. Juan Martin del Potro, the rising star of Argentine tennis, will have to prove how well he can play on the stuff during the European Indoor Season.

I am no fan of the Argentina team (except for Del Potro) but I was happy to see Russia lose because I am sick to death of seeing them in finals (Fed Cup team included).

Besides, Spain-Argentina sounds so much more dangerous. *evil grin* Oh it's going to be a great final. Vamos Espana!

Especially with Del Potro already talking trash. :)

Good for Argentina, although I expect they will lose the finals to Spain.
