Davis Cup doubles heroics

 Fernando Verdasco and Feliciano Lopez are Davis Cup heroes

Wozniacki won, Rus won, Tursunov won and Jimmy Connors is still a bad boy.

Who’d have known the doubles would be so important, or important at all? Lopez and Verdasco beat Nalbandian and Calleri to all but finish off Argentina in the Davis Cup final. Now they only need one win on the last day – probably against the listless Del Potro – and victory is theirs. Who plays instead of Del Potro if you toss him?

“These are very special matches, when you are playing for your country,” said Feliciano Lopez. “I didn’t expect to win yesterday and didn’t expect to win today.” Hmm, do you expect to win tomorrow?
