Surprising, really. I didn't think the clashes at Davis Cup and the Australian Open had such an impact. It's hardly newsworthy in Australia, so I would've thought the same for Argentina.
I wonder how the Aussie tennis fans will react when the Argentines take to court this coming January.
David Beckham's number 3, btw. Seems like the infamous 1998 World Cup kick still hasn't been entirely forgiven by Argentinian soccer fans.
