Rafael Nadal rescues Spain

World number one Rafael Nadal has allegedly rescued his country. He joined forces with Marcel Granollers in order to win the deciding doubles rubber of their quarter-final against Argentina. Nadal put in some extra late-night overtime to drag hosts Spain into the Davis Cup semi-finals, but Novak Djokovic’s hopes were shattered in an excruciating fashion as Serbia bowed out on Friday.

Earlier this week, the 33-year-old Nadal thrashed Diego Schwartzman 6-1 6-2 and claimed a 26th successive singles win in the competition. 

Nadal is a man for a crisis! With this win organizers, the ITF and Kosmos are now breathing a sigh of relief that at least Spain’s evening clash with that of Britain will fill the 12,500 centre court.
