I am also still very sad that Spain didnīt win the Davis Cup this year and obviously I am also especially very sad for Ferru
I was in Prague myself supporting the spanisch team, but as we had to fly back on sunday we had to leave after the first set of Almagro-Stepanek to get to the airport in time.
In the end it maybe was better this way, because I wasnīt so keen on seeing the celebrating czechs as I donīt like them at all! I especially dislike Berdych after all the shit and bad things he has said.
But what I really donīt like and what makes me pretty sad is all the critics Almagro gets! He is not my favourite player, not at all, but I donīt think itīs fair to critize him like many people do! Nico was there all the year for the spanish Davis Cup willing to give everything in every round, even when Feli was not available! Even if I personally think it would have been a good optiom to let Feli play, I also really understand Alex why he let Nico play. And who knows if Feli would have won the match?? He could have lost against Stepanek, who really was on fire, as well! Also the noise in the O2 Arena really was amazing and I can only imagine how difficult it must have been to play there and have so many people against you! Therefore I donīt blame Almagro for loosing...after we lost the doubles on saturday I was almost sure Spain wouldnīt have a chance to win!
For me the key match was the doubles..unfortunately Marcel played really bad last saturday and made far too many easy mistakes, especially volleys who went into the net
I really, really wanted Spain to win and am still very sad for them, but on the other hand it was a great success for them to reach the final again and itīs a fact that you cannot always win!
I hope all the players will enjoy their holidays now & I am already looking forward to next year
For me it was a wonderful year, not only tennis wise
